We first encountered flamenco in grotto cafes in southern Spain in 1967. Tablao las Carboneras in central Madrid is similarly gritty and powerful. Price was moderate, a real drink was included and no one hustled us to buy more drinks. It and Las Tablas set the standard for what I'd call non-commercial Madrid big show flamenco. If we return to Madrid, we'd probably return to both flamenco shows.

A great performance by very professional and passionate dancers. We had stage front seats and a pitcher of sangria. Great suggestion from Joanna with Insidermadrid.com who takes you on an amazing tapas walking tour!

The flamenco show here is unbelievable. The passion and quality is unsurpassed. This may be our favorite thing we did in our 6 days in Madrid. The people who work there were fantastic as well. We did not do the dinner option but it looked great and if we did it again would probably do the dinner as well. We had a table right in front but honestly the place is small enough that there are no bad seats. The place is not very big so making reservations is best. We bought our tickets at a gift shop over by Opera metro station and got a 10% discount!

We payed for the show+one drink. I've already seen flamenco's shows in my own country but this was more an introduction to flamenco. Neither the food or the show are worth the money. If you want to see real flamenco is better to pay a few extra dollars and go to the teather.

We booked a table for dinner & flamenco show. The food was great and the flamenco show was amazing! The dancers had so much emotion & vigour! Their years of experience certainly were displayed on the dance floor. Definitely impressed and a flamenco show i'd recommend to anyone visiting Madrid
