The food was buffet style and beautifully fresh. We also received little tasters throughout the meal. After the meal, we went into a small room with small stage where we witnessed traditional flamenco dancing and guitar playing, both of which were terrific! I booked beforehand and there are some evenings where the price is discounted. You can also see the... More

Walking up the narrow staircase off the Rambla you wouldn't think you were heading into an entertainment venue but you are. Divided into two rooms - one for the scrumptious buffet and the other for the flamenco performance, the nearly 3 hour evening is full of good food and even better flamenco dancing as these passionate performers dance their hearts...

The restaurant itself had limited space so it felt "crowded" even though it wasn't full. Even the buffet area appeared cramped. However, the place was nicely decorated and clean. The service was attentive and courteous; empty buffet dishes were quickly replaced and your glass is never empty for long. The food was well presented but nothing to write home about.... More

Such a beautiful and traditional place. Although small, the place had a lot of room for the dinner buffet. Food was excellent ranging from different kind of tapas to authentic spanish dishes and desserts. Probably the best paella I've ever tasted. With free flowing wine and sangria, it's trully a gastronomic experience. And that's not all, when it's time for... More

We booked for the show and cocktails only and we were thrilled. This was a beautiful dance, performed by very talented dancers. The costumes were breathtaking.

Food: Barely edible, worst meal I ever have eaten in Spain. Wine: Drinkable, but pretty bland Tempranillo. Cheap supermarket stuff with restaurants own label. Staff: Friendly. Show: Best part of the evening. Skilfull and passionate performers. Very cramped showroom.

We enjoyed the flamenco dancing and thought the atmosphere was wonderful. The food, buffet style, was average, but there was a great variety with unlimited wine and sangria!
