We went on our first night in Sevilla and enjoyed it so much, we were tempted to go again. For 35 euros each we got the show plus one drink. It is a small, intimate venue and the performers were excellent. No photos or video allowed until the end when they all come out for a finale. We just kept saying, "how do you learn that?" Live flamenco is amazing to behold! Skip the more flagrant tourist traps and check this one out!

The performers were all excellent and the show itself is well worth seeing; however the ambience at the start was ruined by an extremely surly waiter who pushed spectators out of the way and knocked belongings ( including a camera) off tables. The spectators around us from several different countries could not believe his attitude and the contempt he showed to those who are effectively paying his wages. This needs to be sorted out as people will be put off and it detracts from a great show.

Unless you are certain that the venue will sell out, do not book in advance. We made the mistake of doing this and there is absolutely no benefit to doing so.

It does not entitle you to a better seat but worse than this those turning up at the door get a 10% discount. It seems grossly wrong that the advance booking actually costs more when this is not mentioned anywhere during the booking process.

The venue do not care about this as by the time you have found out they already have your money - not a good way to treat tourists.

One of the best things I spent money on in all of Spain! This is a small intimate venu with outstanding dancing, incredible live music and beautiful costumes. It does not feel like a "touristy" show. The perfromers definitely give you the impression that they are really passionate about what they do. It is set in a lovely location on the plaza de Santa Cruz which is only a short walk from all the main sites and hotels. It was only 3 blocks from our hotel in the old Jewish Quarter. Although the price was higher than the other Flamenco that our hotel recommended I believe it was worth every penny, especially to be in such a small venu so you could really be close to the dancers and see there facial expressions and passion for the dance. Really if I had anything one thing from my 11 days in Spain that I would do again it would be this.

I went to the flamenco show with my housband and two other couples in mid September. There are two shows/evening in this period - one starting at 20.00 and another at 22.30. The price was 35 euros for the show and one drink.
The performance of the artists was very very good. Flamenco is a very passionate way of expressing feelings and the artists succeded in sharing that through their songs and dance performance. We had seen before a flamenco show in Barcelona, in el Tablao de Carmen, so we could make a comparison. The show here, in Los Gallos, was slightly better and seemed more authentical. All the 6 dancers were excellent along with the guitar players and singers.
However it was pretty crowded with no leg room.We took sangria as the included drink and it was awful - it had less wine and more water and it was very sweetened. So, better try cerveza or soda.
All in all the experience was one to remember.
