Not being a specialist in flamenco myself (I don't speak Spanish to start with), I cannot pretend I am capable of distinguishing between the really authentic flamencos and the rest. However, I went to the show assuming that it will be a way to pass 30 minutes of my life and that would be it. And yet, the show was... More

We were very leery after reading about bad experiences at other places with dinner shows, but figured that for only 15 Euros and 30 minutes, if it wasn't good we we didn't really lose too much. Turned out to be great!!! The performers went hard for the 30 minutes with both music and dance, Really enjoyed it

We came across Los Tarantos while staying on La Rambla. We had walked to the beautiful Paca Reial for seafood paella at one of the many outdoor restaurants on the square. We saw the sign for this and got tickets for this show to complete our last evening in Barcelona. The venue is small but they do three shows a... More

My mom has always wanted to see flamenco and has visited me in Barcelona several times. This time was during her birthday so the family took her to Los Tarantos on recommendation from a friend. I read all the reviews here first and so I had an idea of what to expect when going in. All five of us were... More

We visited with another couple in the hunt for traditional Flamenco dancing - we queued for 10 mins and were then told we could only stand - still 15 Euros! The musicians were good but the dancing (two dances) in 30 mins was not, in my view, good value.

Not sure about the negative reviews. Yes it's short and sweet but they are all very good at what they do, if it was longer it would be even better! great to listen to and watch. A fun evening out before heading out for some dinner nearby. A nice area of Barcelona too 😊

This show is near La Rambla and is not one of the full-out dinner-and-show experiences you can find elsewhere, but it's good for those who want a taste of flamenco but don't care too much about having the full experience. This was the cheapest and shortest show I could find at $15 (I think) for a half-hour show, and it... More

Located in very touristic place. So its meant to be for tourists. Show repeats every hour. Takes half an hour. Being in Spain and not seen Flamenco? Thats your chance:) it is nice and finishes before you get bored.

We didn't book so spent 20 minutes in the queue to be told that standing room only. We did this and frankly got a better view than those in the main seating area. I have no real experience with Flamenco, but thought the singing was good but the dancing while flashy at times, was, per my partner, rather ordinary. 30... More

Was not impressed w show. Was a joke not much dancing. Place is small, the seats in front of us wear so close the woman hair was almost in our sangria bought tickets AHEAD of time but still waited in the same line w non ticket holders. But on the upside it is locate in a beautiful court Yard.
