Discovery of Flamenco
Feb. 2020 • Couples
The setting is sober, warm and quite welcoming.
The food tasted good. The highlight of the night of course was the authentic Flamenco show.
Great experience! I would recommend.

Terrible!
Dec. 2019 • Couples
We attended a performance in December and it was awful! I have seen other flamenco performances and this one did not measure up. The talent was very spotty. The singing was awful. The guitar playing was just okay. There were 6 dancers and only 2 of them were talented. The show was not worth the money we paid and we definitely would not come back.

We regret that you did not like the show, but art is very subjective and sometimes what one likes does not like others. Didn't you like any of the 3 singers? We just have 4 dancers, not 6... 2 guitars...I am not sure what show have you seen...because your description is not from my flamenco show restaurant... at least in relation to the number of artists

Café Chinitas excellent experience to know Flamenco show
Feb. 2019
If you want to know what the Flamenco show is, you have to visit Café de Chinitas at the "Barrio de La Chueca" in Madrid, as well as, there you can enjoy excellent dinner enjoying the typical spanish dishes, good wines from different regions like Rioja and Ribera del Duero.

Great cocido!
Dec. 2019 • Couples
Tried to book in La Bola to try their cocido but they told me that they also owned this place that is very close, so I booked it. It’s a famous “tablao” flamenco, with not very comfortable tables but the Cocido is excelent. The house wine (Ribera de Duero) was also ok, and not expensive at all. We really enjoyed it.

My first and only flamenco show
Oct. 2019
Amazing, fantastic phenomenal energetic show. You couldn't take your eyes off the dancers. It was a little long for me, at one point I got a little bored. The dancers are amazing. Both female and male dancers put their heart into the performances. They are in excellent shape, with all that tapping, stomping and moving around you saw nothing jiggling or moving that wasn’t supposed to move. They seemed to put even more in it for the finale. It was amazing and full of energy.
I recommend this show to everyone, especially if you have not seen one. It was very interesting and even captivating. I can't comment of the food because we only purchased show and drink tickets. We did have desert and can say they were excellent. Cokes are served in small bottles and there are no refills. It cost 4 Euros for another coke. The space was tiny, close seating.

Show and drink - strange set-up
Oct. 2019 • Couples
We both enjoyed the show very much. There were some talented performances. Sadly, the appearance of the sole male dancer was a bit brief.

The strange thing about this venue is that the audience appears to be arranged in a V shape, although you can’t see the other part of the audience. The effect of this is that performers are constantly switching their attention abruptly from side to side.

This takes away a degree of intimacy and undermines the ambience. Well done performers - you did your best with a difficult venue and kept us entertained.

Amazing, spectacular, fantastico!
Oct. 2019
We were very lucky that we had booked this restaurant from Australia and found that it was in walking distance of our hotel on the Gran Via We had dinner which was delicious and our waiter was so friendly and helpful. We were very lucky to be moved to a table right at the front for the show because it seemed that the family of the main male dancer came into our original place. The dancers were all amazing but the lead male dancer was extraordinary. Such passion and incredible energy!!! A truly spectacular show and a great taste of Spanish culture on our last night in Madrid. Thank you to all the staff for looking after us so well.

Flamenco Dancing
Sep. 2019 • Couples
These dancers are amazing. The male dancer was out of this world. He danced from his heart and it truly showed.
The female dancers and singers were just so beautiful to watch and listen to.
We were very surprised to find this show was not packed. More people need to know about this show.
We recommend this show to everyone.
We can’t comment on the food since we only booked the show and drinks.
