About
The Tablao de Carmen pays tribute to the great flamenco dancer, Carmen Amaya, born in 1913 in the gypsy quarter of Somorrostro which then existed in what is today Barcelona's Olympic Village. Carmen Amaya made her debut in 1929 before King Alfonso XII on the site which is today the Tablao de Carmen at the inauguration of Poble Espanyol de Montjuic. The Tablao offers a top quality pure flamenco show, a direct descendant of the tradition. It dynamically presents several of the most important palos or styles of flamenco so that the spectator can get to know the richness and variety of this art form. It also highlights its different forms of expression: instrumental, vocal and dance.

A lovely intimate venue within the Poble Espanyol which allowed you to really feel the intensity and the passion of the performnce. There was a good vegetarian tapas menu and as much wine/sangria as needed!

What a moving and powerful performance. So inspiring. The food was great and the wine was great. The venue is perfectly designed so everyone gets a good view of the performance. Loved every minute of it and would highly recommend this experience. Another great bonus is the free ticket to the village which is mostly closed at night so arrive earlier if you want to explore more of craft shops.

We loved the whole ambience of the venue (within the architectural museum). The dancers were all ages, and were truly astouding in their energy and natural flow, unchoreographed but in harmony with the musicians: I am not sure who was leading whom, and I think it varied, but it was passionate, moving and mesmerizing. Wonderful dancers, wonderful musicians, who played off each other beautifully. The food was very good and was satisfying and interesting, and we had a bottle of wine between us, as part of the package. It was fascinating (sfter the show) to meet the owner/manager who told us some of the background to the venue, including that the eldest dancer had been dancing there since she was young (and had retained her passion, energy and movement). Worth having a meal with the show. Enjoyed the show immensely. I went with my son who is in a wheelchair and access was good. There was also someone else there in a power wheelchair.

We booked the VIP dinner option, and in our opinion it was totally worth it. We were greeted by the host and listened to the very interesting back story of Carmen Amaya, which the restaurant is named after. The family who runs this is related to the late Carmen Amaya and the story and context sets the stage for the venue very nicely.

The food for the VIP dinner was excellent and they accommodated some eating restrictions in our party. And it was very plentiful. It was an excellent meal.

Finally, the show itself was great and the performers seemed very passionate about their craft.

This was considered a highlight of our week in Barcelona and we easily would recommend Tablao de Carmen to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Great show, food lovely and the walk up-to the restaurant is wonderful. Owner is also very friendly and so are the staff. Booked last minute have the meal rather than the tapas. Great table right on the edge of the dance floor.

We lived this place. One of the owners (Mimi) was super friendly and spent time giving us all the background on the place. The sangria was excellent and, of course, the singing and Flamenco dancing were incredible. They even gave us a delicious chocolate dessert (with a small snow globe on top) for our anniversary. I would return here again and again…and again. So worth it!!
