“Painful and disappointing- don't waste your time”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We were told this was flamenco dancing.....in reality it was a show of two old men awkwardly singing..they were actually yelling. The dancer (yep just one) showed up for one song. She was visually less than stellar. Wine tasted bad and no toilet paper. Hate I wasted my evening at this place. Pay the extra money and go somewhere else.

“Flamenco puro”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Recommended by Lonely Planet, it was worth the hunt to find it. Go early and reserve a table at the front, although it is so small that anywhere will do. 12€ per person. All men, guitar players, singers, box beater (sort of drum) AND THE DANCER WHO WAS FANASTIC. Great night of flamenco. Starts at 10:30 pm and ends around midnight.

“No Show”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

After seeing brochures for the Flamenco show, La Buleria, we booked through our hotel to see the performance. Arriving at the address, we found no other patrons. We waited about 40 minutes when a gentleman told us in Spanish that we would have to wait until more people arrived. It was 11.30pm at this stage and when we declined he told us to come back the next evening. Again we declined as we would no longer be in Cordoba. Eventually after much discussion and phone calls to our hotel we were told we would get our money refunded. All of this discussion was by the only other patron who had a little Spanish.
And yes we did get our money refunded. We had paid only 12 Euros whereas the other flamenco performances were much more expensive.
There was no paper or soap in the toilets.
If the show had occurred I am sure we out have had an authentic flamenco experience but that was not to occur.

“Thoroughly entertaining”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We went to Meson La Buleria to enjoy the Flamenco Show and were thoroughly entertained, the performers were a family and worked very well together. The musicians were talented and the singers performed in a very heartfelt way. It was clear that the dancer really enjoyed dancing and she was mesmerising to watch. The only shame was that it was very quiet, when the show started there were only 6 people in there, although more came in later on. The sangria was good. The food was okay, although it is not their strength, so if we went again we would probably dine elsewhere first. All in all we had a fab evening, two tickets, two meals and a jug of sangria to share came in at a bargainous €40!

“Avoid!”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

The show was cancelled at the last minute because there were so few people. There are other places to go, but never this one!
