I have been to other flamenco shows in Granada and Sevilla, and this was definitely sub-par. The dancers went through the motions, acting bored and angry with the audience. No photos. Food was served to a group in the back of the cave and they must have been hungry because they were filling their plates, which angered the main dancer... More

The show was fascinating. The dancers and musicians evidence a true love of the art. I love Flamenco and the power of the dancers, along with our proximity to the performance, was quite an experience. The Tablao, Flamenco performance, was genuine. You could read that in the dancer's body movements as well as in their faces. At intervals, their faces... More

What it lacks in modern organizational services, it makes up for in spicy character and raw energy. I booked tickets for a flamenco 'dinner show' in advance, through Viator. The promised hotel pick up missed us and did not notify us, so we took a cab to get there for the show. The host grabbed the voucher and hustled inside... More

We went to Los Tarantos for the early (9 p.m.) show and dinner. We had to wait until a group of tourists was finished eating (and moved to other seats in the cave) before we could sit down...and quickly realized that we were the only group dining while this show was going on. The manager was very friendly and helpful,... More

From the reviews there seem to be multiple caves and troupes under this banner with some dramatic differences in the troupes. The start was far from auspicious as the bus arrived some 15 minutes late (and it was raining), then (as our friend described) a guy that looked like a classic mafioso (fedora and trench coat) checked the tickets. Finally... More

We saw 3 different flamenco shows in the last several days. This was clearly the lowest quality singing, dancing, and guitar playing. Just kind of "meh" after seeing the other two shows in Seville before this one in Granada. I recommend trying some other place/company/organization/venue.
