“GREAT show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

We were on a busget, so we only had the drinks with the show. It was amazing! Such a great experience and excellebnt show! We were fine without having dinner and the people at the front spoke English. Also in a good, safe, part of town!

“Perfect show!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

The Flamenco show was gorgeous! The dancers were great, very nice costumes, and also the background band played amazingly well! Also the food (seafood paella) was good. Overall, I can recommend to visit this place to everyone.

“Awful food and okay show”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

I went here as part of a work party.

The food was terrible with very small portions and one drink. All additional items were chargeable, including butter for the rolls!!!!

I would not bother with the food if attending for the show.

The show was good although not that long but a good show of flamenco. The dancers came on one after another with no break, it would be good to do the show combined with a proper dinner.

For the price a disappointment.

“Not what it is cracked up to be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

We went to just the show as it was reviewed not to bother with the dinner. I believe that was correct however, I would add the show isn't very good and really not worth the money and time. We very disappointed we spent both!!

“HIT and MiSS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

THE MISS:
Started very badly, we waited out side for the doors to open at 9.40 in an orderly cue. By 10.00 we were still waiting and it was getting hot and stuffy with no apology or explanation as to the table allocation or anything. When they finally opened the doors the waiters were already frantic and sweating and they were stressed and rude to us. We just two people and they made us wait to the side whilst they allowed in 2 coach party's. We expressed our our dissatisfaction but they were not interested and continued to push people around like we were cattle. They eventually showed us our table but could not understand while they didn't sat to us 'go over to the bar, yours is the only table for 2'. I guess that would have been to easy, it seems these people like to make hard work for them selves. We ordered the 'Barcelona meal' and the food was not bad, quite tasty and we had a bottle of wine and water on the table. The large long tables next to us, we're ordering comes and the waiters were running about like man men back an forward to the bar getting drinks, I thought perhaps the coke must be on draught but NO, she was boring it from the bottle. Hot tip for management, put coke on the table too and save your waiters the added stress. The food was literally thrown at you and anybody who was in there way was shouted at.

The HIT:
So now the show starts and our mood is not great, but very soon was lifted by this energetic and talented dancers, there were about 20 all up in the troop with just as many quick costume changes, the music loud and passionate and a totally uplifting experience. Fantastic.

We got the food thinking it would allow us a better viewing position. Not so, so save your money eat else where and sit up in the stalls and enjoy the great show but make sure you only leave an average score on trip advisor because they could organise this so much better.
