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.

We visited the Tablao del Carmen which takes place in a taverna in the Poble Espanyol (a sort of mock composite spanish town with elements from all over Spain), with modest expectations but high hopes. We only booked for a drink and show, rather than...More

I have been to Barcelona and experienced flamenco show before. Took my parents this time and the night at El Tablao was disappointing. The performance was hollow and lacks effort- it feels as if they were there clocking the time and leaving straight after. Food...More

I was here last January. It was a great show and dancers were amazing. The only thing that didn't go well was that the show was supposed to start at 6 pm. We arrived earlier and had to wait for more than 15 minutes and...More

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça

fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau

Do I have to purchase tickets ahead of time? Can i just walk up to the village at 4-5 pm and get tickets for the same evening? Would those tickets allow us access to the village? Is the show kid friendly? Is it very loud? Thanks!

You should definitely buy the tickets in advance. If you have the tickets, you can enter into the village early without a fee. The show is kid friendly, there were children of all ages there.

Vegetarian dishes are available? I could see in menu majority of things are non vegetarian. Please suggest so that I would book for the beer and tapas menu instead of dinner. Thanks.

Instead of ordering from Dinner menu, probably better to order Tapas and drinks. And you always can go to Downtown Barcelona after show to find many good restaurants to eat vegetarian dishes.
