Having searched around for a tablao near where we were staying (between Puerto Serrano/Villa Martin) I decided this would be the chosen show for us to attend. We opted for the afternoon show on Weds afternoon which was given as €12 per person including a...drink. A number of people in the group questioned how 'authentic' the show would be, as they said they had seen good and bad flamenco before. Every single person in our group was blown away by this show. I'm not sure if they are an actual family, but it certainly felt like you were watching a family sitting together, and telling stories through the music, dancing and singing. The "mum" had a truly fantastic voice. The two dancers were fantastic and mesmerising. Those in our group who has seen previous shows in other Tablaos said this was the best by far. This isn't just some dancing; This is theatre. This is opera-like. Do not expect glitz and glam and tourist-attracting gimmicks. This is authentic tablao flamenco. If you only visit one place in Ronda, make sure it's this show. Food was OK. Drinks were OK. Servers were friendly.More

Wow! We went to the 2pm show with our family and one other, boy quite sure what to expect. The 5 performers - guitarist, singers and dancers, had fantastic chemistry between them and our whole party was awestruck for them 45 minutes they were in...stage. It’s a very small intimate venue that adds to the atmosphere. A brilliant way to escape from the heat and touristy shops in the middle of Ronda. A must!More

This place bar also doubles as a flamenco venue. We were, however, initially attracted after checking the menu and noticing a number of vegetarian options. There was no flamenco show that evening due to insufficient ticket sales, but to our delight the guitar players had...some impromptu fun with their instruments in the little bar. There is also an outdoor terrace, but it was too cool in the evening. The menu had some diverse and interesting choices. Traditional gazpacho, a charcuterie platter, and (vegetable) croquettes is what you expect. But we also enjoyed a vegetable pastel with a couscous salad and some great potatoes with a spicy green mojo sauce. Every single item was very tasty, a lovely variety of flavours. We finished with a very yummy Bienmesabe dessert, not often seen on a menu, a concoction made with almonds. A very nice rioja, available by the glass was a good wine to go with the food. The young waiters were full of fun and very helpful. and came up with good food recommendations. The price for our very enjoyable evening out was a very reasonable EUR32 incl. a tip.More

We came here twice in one day. First for al fresco afternoon beers. The place was almost empty but the waitress was really friendly. Then, we came for the evening flamenco show. I wasn’t sure what quality to expect but we were amazed by one...of the dancers. She out on a spirited and unbelievably athletic performance. Service during the show was also attentive although I must say the tapas itself was mediocre. I do suggest coming for the show and drinks though.More

We only knew about this place because of the teenage boy handing out flyers as we were walking towards the bullring. We checked it out and we’re so glad we did. Everyone was friendly, the tapas were delicious and the flamenco show was simply amazing!...We were so close to the stage. One of my fave experiences from our week in Spain.More

If you’re visiting central Ronda and want more relaxed food and drink away from the crows and tourist menus this is great. Looks like a bar but also does simple but good food. We had cocktails, cheese board, cold meats, salmorejo, croquettes etc. Very nice...young staff. Also has a small bar stage at the back with live music at nightMore

Rude bartender, maybe the owner??. Ive never been more humiliated in my life. We happen to enter the theatre unaware that there was a cover for the flamenco show. We ordered 2 glasses of wine from the waiter and after he poured them he came...back to tell us that there was a 21 euros cover charge. We didnt want to pay 42 euros since we only wanted a drink, maybe 15min max so we said we were going to leave. Then they wanted us to pay for the wine which we didnt even drink. When we got to the front bar the bartender said: "fuera, fuera" which mean get out and he didnt even wanted us to explain or give us any explanation he pushed us out of the door!!!! It was a horrible experience.More

A small stage and venue, but an excellent and intimate experience of traditional flamenco. We went to the 2pm performance as we could fit this in before catching our bus back to Fuengirola (a fabulous scenic experience in itself ). The guitarist, cantor and two...women performers were all skillful, and we were inspired by their performance. The staff were friendly and advised we reserve our seats. The cost of €12 included a drink. Had we more time in Ronda we would have gone to the evening performance as well, as we enjoyed the experience so much.More

Athletic, passionate story-telling flamenco with dinner. Exceptionally entertaining evening. The dancers, singers and guitarist all were excellent. Highly recommend. PS- Our dinner was also very good. Enjoyed paella.

We were here to see and listen real Flamenco and it was precise what they offered. If your understanding of Flamenco is Gipsy Kings or Armik, or Ottmar Liebert, then its not for you. Its real Flamenco, with cante, palmas, toque and baile. Really appreciated...and recommended!More

The food was very tasty, mini burgers and garlic prawns were our favourite. The room where the show was held was very small but this enabled you to feel the emotion of the singing, dancing and the Spanish guitarist. It was a 40 minute show...which was just long enough - we all thoroughly enjoyed it.More

We went to the flamenco show on September 2nd (evening show). We expected a lot, because we saw reviews on TripAdvisor and skipped similar shows in Seville a few days before. There are no words do describe that level of emotion! All members of the..."band" were great, but dancer was amazing! What a show! This was the best experience on our 16 days trip across the Spain, and we saw amazing and very beautiful things :)More

We went for the flamenco on the last night of our holiday. We'd already eaten and so didn't have a meal, but this could be taken in the cabaret-style concert room. The mojito was good and the entertainment excellent.
