Not a real Flamenko. We paid a 33€ for a show with a disgusting poor drinks. The place was so full of people, so they sat us in the back, and we couldnt see nothing. From what i saw, the show was very poor, the dancer were quite amateurs and i felt it wasn't a real Flamenko. If you are... More

We enjoyed the show though appreciated it was for tourists but unless you want to be awake in the early hours you will only see a tourist show. We saw one if Seville the following week and it wasn't comparable as it lacked the cave atmosphere or gypsy feeling. The location added to the ambiance and provided a good evening.... More

If you find yourself in an Arabic neighbourhood near St. Nicholas Church in Granada on a typical summer night, you will be surrounded bu large groups of tourists on a walk arround the neighborhood before being stuffed in ""caves" for supposedly authentic flamenco performances. These caves look like incredibly crammed restaurants with about 150 miniature chairs hosting these tourists for... More

Visiting the caves of Sacromonte is a must in Granada. The show here is full of enthusiasm and energy. They have a great cast of dancers and musicians who will give you an inspirational and passionate introduction to Granada style flamenco. We purchased a package that included dinner and the show, preceeded by a tour of the Albayzin neighborhood. Definitely... More

Dive into the fascination and excitement of the Andalucian gipsy flamenco. Watch the inticate interaction of the very impressive flamenco guitarist with the dancers and the accompanying group. Certainly something you shouldn't miss when visiting Granada.

My husband and I were staying at an Airbnb directly above Venta El Gallo, so of course we had to go for a show since we could hear it from our room every evening. The performance itself was good (I am admittedly not a flamenco expert, but we enjoyed it), however the bartender and staff were generally not very pleasant... More

The pros: + good tour of Albaicin and Mirador San Nicolos at night which we probably wouldn't otherwise have done. + see sacromonte caves + great flamenco singing and music, could've been the gypsy kings! + nice flamenco dancing. Im unable to say how good it was because I have no knowldge of how it should be. The cons: -... More

The setting is excellent - lovely view of the Alhambra. Then its works simply like this: Good tapas and a 'free' drink. Everything else (a guitarist, good company, the drinking of the free drink conspires to encourage a second (third, etc) drink at EUR 4! So obvious that a number of cervejas and sangrias later, everything was grooving along very... More

Had a great time and surprisingly good dinner here. Six of us had ate on the terrace with a beautiful view of the Alhambra followed by a Flamenco performance. Since it's pretty touristy, I thought the food might suffer, but I had delicious pork kabobs and a lemon cake for dessert. Highly recommend.
