A good evenings entertainment

Easy to find and easy to book in advance with ample car parking nearby. I was a little surprised to find the place wasn't full given its a busy resort. Food was good overall, though my medium steak was rare in places, with Spanish food predominating on the menu. Kids said their food was ok (pizza... read more

This is a small venue (serves more or less 30 people max in the front section where the show is) with a nice flamenco show. One of the waitresses told us they have 2 different flamenco groups/shows, so which one you'll see will depend on the day. We went on a Thu with a reservation and we had a front... 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

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 not too hot. We arrived 30... 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

An excellent venue - food and wine great (tip - try the taster menu), service first class, flamenco dancing, singing and exquisite Spanish guitar, all with a good crowd and ambience.

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.
