Dinner and show

Buffet was great! Lots of variety and quite yummy! I especially enjoyed the salmon, beef stew and octopus. The show was excellent, very intense dancing and singing. Must see in Barcelona!

NEVER BOOK ONLINE!!!! Due to unfortunate circumstance I had to cancel my booking and they confirmed by email a full refund over 2 months ago, I still haven't received my refund. I live in London, which makes correspondence hard and frustrating. I would just like my money back and urge everyone never to book online at all with restaurant as... More

This year the Flamenco show was just as wonderful as last time. However the buffet did not come up to our expectations. Last year there were many authentic regional dishes full of flavor with a nice array of everything. This time it was a total disappointment with "filler" items. It was such a let down that I wrote to them... More

The idea to watch Flamenco and having dinner at the same time was nice, but turned out to be a disappointment. You need to finish dinner within 1,5 hours. Then the buffet is being removed and you are seated in a separat room for the show. You cannot see the stage from at least half the seats and you are... More

Can't be bored with this place, love the service, the staff and the way we are always treated and welcomed. Always come on exactly the reserved start time. Don't be early. If you can spend the cash, go ahead and book the VIP package, it's worth it

Loved the dancing skills the performers showed. The buffet, unfortunately, was not representative of Barcelona's excellent culinary options.

Food was average at best and nothing special. The show was ok, but I am sure there are better Flamenco shows out there. The seating was very tight and we were crammed into a little room with several people having obstructed views.

I know I should probably rate the place on the show and not the food, but at $109 a person, the food should have been on point. It was not and I was disappointed. The show was okay.

We went for dinner. Perhaps the other diners were a bit greedy or perhaps there was not enough food on the buffet, but some dishes were empty when we got to it, giving little choice. Staff were courteous. The room where the flamenco took place was quite small and crowded. The singing and dancing were quite disappointing. We tried not... More

My husband and I purchased the "random time" tickets. We were thrilled with our time. The food was good and generous, included drinks and the show was fantastic. Dramatic and passionate. Our seats were front and center! We really enjoyed our experience.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
