Flamenco with the Addams Family!
Sep 2014
We were directed to El Toro by the Valencia Tourist Board as an alternative to the Flamenco club we had wanted to visit in the city centre, as it didn't run a show on the night we had planned. So we booked a show, with Ta pas included, at Euro 32 per head. El Toro was in the back of beyond within a small shopping plaza at the foot of a block of flats - the windows were all opaque so you couldn't see in. As we entered we were met by a tall plump man with shaven armpits and a nice line in eye make-up. Could he be the flamenco dancer? - thankfully not. We handed him our four tickets which he studied like he had never seen one before, then he glanced around the room before showing us to our table - the only table in the place set for food. We were the only customers. We decided to stick with it and ordered a pitcher of lager for E12, not too bad. They failed to provide glasses for the beer until I asked for them- the wine glasses that were on the table were filthy. The 'ta pas' was interesting - salad+tuna; cheese+dried herbs; pate + blackcurrant jam; cuttlefish in tomato purée, a basket of yesterdays cut bread and finally a pan loaf sized piece of toast with tomato ketchup, a 1cm thick gammon steak covered in melted cheese each! The beer was still E12 per pitcher. The patron, Pepe, introduced himself - he was in his early 80s' - and showed me a host of photos of himself with various stars back in the 1960' - Mick Jagger, Roger Moore, Peter Sellars, Charles Bronson, David Niven - in each photo Pepe appeared at the end with his guitar. Either a genuine party goer during his time in Monte Carlo, or Pepe is the worlds first photo bomber. His wife/or daughter, 66, then began the dancing, whilst the 2 eldest sons played guitar as Pepe sang - she was very intense but she did come over and have a chat in French and showed us how to play the maracas. She was exhausted so I bought her a drink, E10! Around about this time the beer went from E1.5 a glass to E8 a glass (because of the show) - I tried to explain that we had already paid for the show but to no avail. We had one last glass and left to the high strains of the 'man' who had met us at the start of the night singing 'I will survive', we only just did! The moral of this tale being if the show you want to see is not on on the night you want, change nights. We later found a much better flamenco club within 200 metres of the Valencia Tourist Board office - it hadn't been mentioned to us when we booked.

Worst experience ever! Food was awful and the entertainment non existent! Pretty sure the cheated us on the bill too! If someone recommends this place, seriously consider ditching that person.
