Excellent entertainment, good food, fun venue

All but one of us had the taster menu, which had multiple courses which were very nicely presented and, appropriately, tasty. If you order a la carte, there is a 40% markup for the performance. The locale is a semi-outdoor small courtyard in the middle of buildings, and has a nice ambiance and is... read more

Following a visit to Tourist Information in La Herradura we were advised about La Ventura in Almunecar. We went there on Sunday night and had the Menu Degustacion for Euros 29 which included 2 drinks. The food was delicious with a very friendly service. Our table was right at the front and we could see the Guitar players forming the... More

The evening show started at 9.45pm and we told that it would be 3 hours of flamenco. However it turned out to be 3 half hour shows over the 3 hour period. In addition food prices are inflated by 40% during this period to cover the cost of the show. To me this just seemed a crazy was to structure... More

Booked a table for 9pm. Had the five course degustacion menu which was interesting and good value with two drinks included. The Flamenco tablao was terrific and went on (with breaks for three hours. I was emotionally exhausted by the end of the night. Such passion and soul. Highly recommended.

The Flamenco lasted for approx 3hrs on and off and was a fantastic evenings... More

We were recommended to this back street restaurant in Almunecar by a Nerja restaurateur who told us that if we wanted to see Flamenco dancing we needed to go to a venue where the performers had a genuine gipsy background. Deceptively small from the street this restaurant has two separate dining and performance areas. We were assigned a table in... More
