What people are saying about Barcelona

The show was incredible! Being able to see these 8 talented performers in a real tablao was worth every penny. That we paid for the dinner option was like an added bonus! Wonderful selection of freshly prepared hot and cold Spanish dishes - everything from seafood and paella, fresh salads and soups, to delicious desserts including Crema Catalana and homemade chocolate truffles. Drinks (wine, beer, cava) were all included. Dinner was buffet style and when we finished, we were brought into the tablao to our reserved seats, the best seats for dinner guests. This was our most enjoyable evening when in Barcelona. Great value and an incredible show.

This was the absolute highlight of our first holiday for years. I had no idea what was involved in Flamenco and was stunned by how individual the performance was. The dancers and musicians were so involved. It was intense, beautiful and spellbinding.

The food and drinks were excellent (and plentiful!). And the show was much better than I expected. The venue is small and intimate and allows for the emotion of the performers to be felt on a visceral level.

A wonderful evening. Performance was very good as was the dinner. A relaxing friendly atmosphere . It was also nice to meet other travellers . Definitely worth the experience and good value.

Loved the show !! Great as an experience!! Would love to see again !
