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!

We booked in advance for the show with meal. The buffet meal was poor, although this may , partly, be due to this being the lst show of the evening. The theatre was cramped with uncomfortable seating/chairs. The dancing was energetic and impressive. This was accompanied by background singing, but there was no story line to link these two aspects.... More

Two days before returning home to Ireland we decided to see a Flamenco show at Tablao Cordobés. Words fail to describe the experience: one of the most beautiful music and dance shows we have ever seen! It is clear that all artists perform from their hearts. But not only the show: an 'all-you-can-eat' dinner buffet that featured 65 different items... More
