My group and I had such a great time visiting this place! You can buy a ticket for dinner and a show, or you can just buy tickets for the show (which is what we did). The show ticket included a drink and a tapas. There are dance rooms carved into the side of the mountain. You sit along the... More

We were hoping to find an authentic Flamenco experience, and we were not disappointed. As the gondoliers are unique to Venice, Flamenco is unique to Andalucia. We were treated to a passionate, vivid expression of this unique art form. The space, a cave in the Sacromonte, is as much a part of the experience as the live performers. The walls... More

Absolutely incredible to witness people living life off the grid on the outskirts of a major city. If recommend going with a tour group and wearing good walking shoes as it is a bit of a trek. Worth it ten times over though.

Our family went for an evening zambra gitana flamingo show. You can have dinner and show or as we did just the dinner where they come and pick you up at your hotel and bring you back. The venue is very small which makes for a great and intimate experience as you literally sit around the room with the flamingo... More

It wasn't for the food but the dinner was a convenient compulsory before the show. The restaurant was a tight space with a single door entrance and no windows, made to simulate a cave atmosphere. Located in an historical part of Granada, right opposite the hills of La Alhambra, it's a nostalgic area. Narrow streets of cobble stones!!! La Alhambra... More

We went here for dinner and for the flamenco show. A small bus fetched us at downtown Granada, and carried us here going through the Albaicín narrow streets. First we had dinner at one of the caves. We had reasonable food and wine, with good and friendly service. Then, you go into other cave for the flamenco show. Both musicians... More

The show is terrible, there is no emotions from the artists and they dance bad like robots. The singer is bad and guitar man also play very middling. Not recommended, save your money. Ужасное фламенко, просто жалко потраченных денег. Место просто туристический развод. Не советую никому категорически.

Yes the cave was filled with Japanese tourists and yes some of the staff may seem rude (have you not been to a restaurant in Granada before?). However, the night I was there the quality of the dancing, singing and guitar playing was extremely good. One dancer was an extremely beautiful morena, another a bit stern and older and looked...

My husband and I disagreed on th grading of the place - he wanted me to give it only three points, I wanted four. This place was recommended by a friend who is herself originally from Granada. The place offers three things (1) traditional flamenco dances performed by the locals (2) an unusual venue (a cave) (3) a drink. The... More
