What a great experience! Set in caves in the hillside, long dining tables and delicious food along with a fabulous show. A great dinner followed by loud and colourful music and dance.

I can't speak to the food. I didn't eat there, and I don't recommend you do, either. Just go to hear the music and see the dance. You don't want to be that clown clinking your silverware while a woman is pouring her heart out on stage. That will happen, especially among certain tourist groups from certain countries renowned for their discourtesy. (If you want to get a drink, they're not great here, but that's more acceptable. Just be respectful about when you set your glass back down.)

El Templo del Flamenco is a *fantastic* music and dance experience. There's one male singer, one female, one guitarist, one guy who claps (and sometimes dances) and two women who clap, stomp and dance.

The music is passionate. The performances are powerful. The venue (a hidden, whitewashed cave) is unique. You will have a great time, guaranteed.

I was seriously wowed by the talent on display.

As I mentioned, I was deeply annoyed that waiters would frequently have to service tables in the middle of performances. And I was annoyed that certain tourist groups from certain countries renowned for their discourtesy had no idea how to silence their cameras so they wouldn't chime every time they went to take a picture. And I was annoyed that certain-certains also had a way of clinking their silverware at the absolute worst musical moments.

But if you can get past that, you will see amazing artists at the top of their game, giving you passion that could melt stone.

I put a pair of videos on YouTube you can search for. TripAdvisor won't let me insert a URL.

Warning: El Templo del Flamenco is *seriously* difficult to find. I wrote them in advance to secure our place and they had one of their employees meet us (and others) at the Puerta de Elvira (an easy-to-find monument). From there, you ascend *several* winding staircases to get to the venue. It's not an easy climb unless your middle name is Stairmaster.

If you miss the escort, it may be possible to find the venue with an offline map app, like "maps.me," although such offline maps tend to be woefully incomplete. You will be shocked at how hidden this place is.

Warning #2: If you attend the later of the two performances, be sure to have eaten *before* the show. Granada tends to shut down earlier than other Spanish towns we visited, so we were literally racing from closed restaurant to closed restaurant, searching in vain for something open that late. Come with a full belly and you'll be happier. (If you attend the first performance of the night, most restaurants should be at your disposal for a post-show meal.)

The El Templo del Flamenco puts on an amazing, authentic flamenco show inside a cave. The experience was unbeatable. The music and dancing were full of passion and energy. Loved it!

I am writing this to warn everybody not to book for anything in this place. After showing them my confirmation that was booked via tripadvisor they said that they don't deal or do business with them. Although be warned they do have the tripadvisor sticker, which I am asking the company to have it removed.We did not see the show or have our free drink. They did not seem to be helpful or even to negotiate other terms. So, my whole plans for the day were ruined. The place was also distant to other places. It was between houses and very queit and empty. Maybe that was because it was January. Again don't book online. Maybe you could try just walking in Or calling them.

We were very disappointed with the Flamenco performance at “El Templo de Flamenco” in the Albaicín district in Granada. Though the food was oood, it was clear this place thinks tourists don't know anything about Flamenco. The dancers spent most of their time stomping around, which is NOT what flamenco is about. The microphone made the stomps unbearably loud/ Dancers failed to express the emotional content, the beautiful hand gestures, bodily expressiveness and the facial intensity of good flamenco. They were amateurs who danced not with their bodies but just with their feet, the worst of flamenco. The singers were weak, with none of the emotional depth or the rich vocal tones or emotional range of good singers. Microphones were used but in fact are unnecessary in flamenco performances with strong singers, which these were not. The guitarist seemed to be in another world entirely, showing off technique for its own sake, and, like the others, without emotional or musical depth, but with disconnected runs without musical focus and unrelated to the singers or dancers. Flamenco is a collaborative activity and singers, dancers and guitarists need to be in support of one another. This performance was entirely disconnected, without sophistication, emotional or musical depth, and without the wholistic and rich expressive body movements of flamenco. The dancers appeared to be just feet alone. This poor performance reflects a disregard for tourists and failure to acknowledge that some tourists, at least, know a great deal about flamenco and recognize poor amateurish performances.

I am very surprised with this review, inasmuch as I would underline among the features of this Show, strength and feelings. I really think that you went to a different place, because this cave has been awarded several specialised prizes about this matter, the Art of Flamenco. Moreover, most of our artists have taken part in Flamenco contests winning a wide variety of prizes. We show a huge respect for tourists who choose this cave every night, for this reason we care all the details such as a suitable sound given that in a cave so large like this, it is essential a professional equipment in order to provide our customers with the best quality of sound. I absolutely disagree with your statements, and It is clear that the rest of people who write theirs opinions in this website, too.

I was a little dissapointed with the show. They advertised as the experts in Flamenco but I have seen better dancers in Madrid.

We were looking forward for an excellent Flamingo show, more traditional as we were told. But it was according to me not near a Flamingo show. The late night walk after the show and to to see the Alhambra at night was actually the highlight of the whole evening.

The staff were relatively friendly and the food was very good. Better than I expected. The wine and sangria were only adequate, but we were not expecting better. Well, maybe we were expecting better sangria.

The flamenco show itself was very nice. The dancers were enthusiastic and, as a group, they worked very well together. The guitarist was especially good and was extremely talented and enjoyable.

They DO serve WAY too much food though! We were only two people (and had had a couple of tapas prior to coming to the show). Four people would have been challenged to eat as much food as we were provided. It was a shame to waste so much. Looking around at the other tables, we were not alone in wasting so much of our food.

We learned from our guide of the Alhambra that this particular show is not in the cave area of Sacromonte. The show was a mix of some dancing and guitar music. The Flemenco show we saw in Barcelona was much better. Dancers in this show were not as skilled.
