The Tablao de Carmen pays tribute to the great flamenco dancer, Carmen Amaya, born in 1913 in the gypsy quarter of Somorrostro which then existed in what is today Barcelona's Olympic Village. Carmen Amaya made her debut in 1929 before King Alfonso XII on the site which is today the Tablao de Carmen at the inauguration of Poble Espanyol de Montjuic. The Tablao offers a top quality pure flamenco show, a direct descendant of the tradition. It dynamically presents several of the most important palos or styles of flamenco so that the spectator can get to know the richness and variety of this art form. It also highlights its different forms of expression: instrumental, vocal and dance.

Great atmosphere. An intimate setting with the tables close to the stage. We started with tapas, generous portions of 6 different items, plus your choice of sangria, wine or beer. The sangria was excellent! The service was great. The flamenco show lasted about an hour....More

We chose the tapas menu and found it to be completely satisfying. We were served several different tapas along with sangria and a red wine. All delicious. The food was followed by flamenco dancing. There were three female dancers, one male dancer and two singers,...More

this is set in a little 'fake' village that showcases the various regions of Spain. I found it adorable. the good thing is that normally there is admission to pay to just go into the village, but the flamenco tickets include the price of admission....More

My expectations were exceeded by this experience. It takes place in a rather touristy part of town, so I wasn't expecting a lot. I was there with my family (wife, two kids and mother in law) and all of us very much enjoyed the experience....More

I don't see why not! Unless you have a problem with serving wine or sangria. It's like a dinner show with a lot of flamenco dancing. I personally loved it and I have 6 grandkids. If I would have them with me I would take... More
