About the Show

The Tablao de Carmen owes its name to the famous flamenco dancer Carmen Amaya, who was born in the gypsy quarter of Somorrostro. Amaya made her debut in 1929 for the King of Spain, Alfonso XIII, in the very same space which is now Tablao de Carmen. Both the location and the venue itself offer special details in addition to the flamenco show. Located within the Poble Espanyol de Montjuïc, one of Barcelona´s most important city parks constructed for the 1929 World Exhibition, the tablao shares its grounds with the Fuente Mágica, el Teatro Griego (Greek Theatre), and the Fundación Miró. This area has the feel of a village, with narrow streets, small shops and restaurants.

The venue itself is divided into three spaces, all of which create a typical Andalusian setting for the performances. The main area is the tablao, which accommodates approximately 150 persons and features multiple levels of seating as well as high ceilings. The decoration and colors in the performance area are inspired by the famous Feria de Abril in Seville. Next is an exact reproduction of a "patio cordobés", with all of the details and ambience of the typical homes of Cordoba in southern Spain. Finally, the Freiduría Tio Pepe serves a variety of seafood and other regional dishes along with the typical drink of any Feria: cold fino (sherry).

The Tablao de Carmen was founded in 1988, and features a mix of established and up and coming performers in the Spanish flamenco scene. Two nightly performances last approximately one hour, covering a variety of flamenco styles while individually focusing on the traditional elements of a flamenco performance: the music, song and dance. Ticket packages include the show with drink, tapas or dinner. Special discounts are available for children age 4 - 13 as well as groups. With a reservation in Tablao de Carmen you can enter the exhibition of "Poble Espanyol" for free from 16:00 (4pm) on the day of the show.


The stellar experience was worth every penny! We have a beautiful tour of the building and learned the history of Carmen and the Tablao. We had a fabulous table right by the stage and the food was amazing! It was a tasting menu and was more than plenty for two! Highly recommend!
A night to remember in Barcelona! The reviews seemed too good to be true when booking this, but their reputation precedes them. The service, ambiance, drinks, food, and performances were unforgettable! You can’t find an experience like this in the States. I highly recommend the tapas dinner and sangria (they give you a whole pitcher)! If you can, get to dinner early to walk and shop around poble… super cute picturesque area!
Wonderful flamenco experience with delicious tapas dinner that easily catered to dietary restrictions (gluten free and lactose free) with gluten free bread, the best gluten free croquettes, and lactose free cheese. We also got refills of the sangria included in our price which was nice. The singers and dancers were so beautiful and it really felt like they loved every minute of it. It is in this cute little village and if you go before 19h the shops are still open and there are so many cute spots. I highly recommend the dinner and show.
One of the most incredible dinner experiences I have ever had! Not only you will get to enjoy an amazing Flamenco show, you will also have a great meal with a variety of typical southern Spanish food. I highly recommend buying the VIP experience, which is very affordable and will get you the best seats in the house. We had the honor of meeting the owner Mimo, who told us about her background and the history of the Tablao de Carmen before staring the show.
Best dinner and flamenco experience in Barcelona. Maybe ever. We chose the variant with tapas, which includes 5 course menu and wine/sangria/coffee. For two it was much than enough. The performance of artist was incredible. There were Spanish folks in audience, so I guess this is definitely not a tourist trap but really good quality event.
I had the privilege to meet the owner of the place who made it a must to narrate the story behind this place and share her passion for the Flamenco. Personally, this place is just mesmerising and you don't see the time passing by. You get to enjoy delicious tapas and set meals while enjoying a live Flamenco show. I would strongly advise for pre-booking before your vist as this place is very often full house!
