It is in the Gitanos district inside a cavern, they say. Strictly a tourist thing but very enjoyable. It is Flamenco Gitana style and it is called Zambra. The dancers were very energetic well accompanied by the singer and musicians. It lasts one hour and it is enough to introduce you to that wonderfull world of Spanish/ Mauresque tradition. Don't...

We went for a 10 pm show and it was very disappointing. Not the place to see quality flamenco sadly. I believe they operate mostly to turn over tour groups. If you have low expectations and just want to say you saw a flamenco show in a cave you'll probably be alright with what they deliver. If you want to... More

The show was very energetic and nice. They dance right at your front. You can check out all of the photos here to get a feeling of what was going on. The staffs are friendly. The walk after flamenco show is pretty good but I did not hear anything from the guide. Seeing Alhambra at night is pretty magical. They... More

If you are looking to see a Flamenco Show then I recommend going to the Caves at Cueva de La Rocio in Sacromonte area. We saw three Flamenco shows during our 3 weeks in Spain, and this one was by far the most enjoyable. We chose show and not show and dinner and were given one free drink of either... More

We had a dinner and Flamenco show at this venue which was exciting and entertaining. Our tapas meal, with accompanying drinks, was enjoyable and served in a timely manner. The Flamenco dance presentation was the special experience of the evening. They showed passion, energy and a love of their dancing. The dancing was very entertaining and worthy of a visit... More

unbelievable energy passion and speed in the dance. Absolutely not to be missed. Dance is performed in a cave that adds to the ambiance. Area is small and the dancers are within touching distance. Long drive to get there but worth it. Quite an experience.

We only went for the show so I can't speak to the restaurant there but the dancing was seriously amazing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Granada! Me and my friends were absolutely blown away.

My group and I had such a great time visiting this place! You can buy a ticket for dinner and a show, or you can just buy tickets for the show (which is what we did). The show ticket included a drink and a tapas. There are dance rooms carved into the side of the mountain. You sit along the... More

We were hoping to find an authentic Flamenco experience, and we were not disappointed. As the gondoliers are unique to Venice, Flamenco is unique to Andalucia. We were treated to a passionate, vivid expression of this unique art form. The space, a cave in the Sacromonte, is as much a part of the experience as the live performers. The walls... More

Absolutely incredible to witness people living life off the grid on the outskirts of a major city. If recommend going with a tour group and wearing good walking shoes as it is a bit of a trek. Worth it ten times over though.
