Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

I was sceptical,about going but wife really wanted to. I absolutely loved it, I was literally glued to the performance all the way through. We had the tapas, not the main meal and it was just fine, more than enough.

I would recommend it, the intensity of the performance draws you in Nd keeps you enthralled. But they made us feel like we just happened to have stopped into a bar where this was all going on by accident.

Loved it and will return next time we are in town.

We enjoyed the performance, the tapas where ok as well. We had a look at the village which looks old but is not :-). It is really a part of a world exhibition.

we very impressed from the show, before our visit the friend doesn't recommend waste many and time for flamenco, but obviously they were not lucky enough to see flamenco performed by professionals.

My husband and I both enjoyed the flamenco show immensely! The dancers were very talented and the whole performance was filled with passion and flair. We loved every minute of it and would go again next time we are in Barcelona! The location was also great as it is located in the stunning replicated old town in Barcelona, which has many interesting shops and a wonderful cultural atmosphere. I recommend going a bit early, before the show, so that you can take in the sites and shops.

My Spanish friend told me there is no authentic flamenco in Barcelona. We made reservation online anyway since we were not going to go to the southern part of Spain during this trip. The online reservation system was bit awkward but it did work out. We ordered the tapas menu and there was so much food we couldn't finish. The serrano ham was surprisingly good ... among the best we had while in Barcelona. We couldn't tell if the dancing and singing was authentic but the performances were indeed very good. As first time visitors to Spain, we truly enjoyed the evening.
