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.

Reviews

Located at Poble Espanyol. This is an open air museum. If you have a ticket/ reservation for the Tablao de Carmen then your entrance is free, otherwise it is €15. When booking ticket there are several options for the meal, we choose tapas option what was more than enough. Sangria and coffee are included. Show is nice, not too long. You need to be there on time.
Amazing experience, really authentic Flamenco dancers. You can really feel their emotions! We have booked show + tapas, worth every penny
We booked tickets for Flamenco and Drinks (50 euros per person) months in advance of our visit to Barcelona because we’d heard great things about Tablao de Carmen. We were sat on the first floor with half our table unable to see the show at all without standing and blocking the waiters and the other half craning their necks. For a premium show you’d expect every seat in the house to be able to at least partially see the show. Multiple tables had the same issue and some even asked to be moved. Given my experience I wouldn’t recommend the show unless you pay more for the tables that include dinner which all have an unobstructed view. I’ve attached pictures of the view so others are warned before buying the same package.
If you are visiting Barcelona anytime soon, you need to go see this show. Tablao de Carmen is located in Poble Espanyol, which you get to visit for free (like a cute small village) if you book a dinner/show at Tablao de Carmen. I am so glad we went. The performance was incredible. I teared up, got goosebumps it was so good. The food was good too. The only thing we didn't like was the cumin (?) chicken. Felt out of place. But other than that we loved everything. ❤️
Made a reservation for six. Our table was upstairs, which was great for me, but if you have shorter kids, it was a little bit harder for them to see, but they sat at the edge and it was fine. We chose to do the dinner which was €85 per person. Plenty of food and variety. Everyone really enjoyed everything that was served. Plenty of sangria was served! Dancing, singing, the music…everything was five stars was absolutely amazing. Highly recommend. An added bonus is when you make a reservation it includes that ability to go to the Spanish Square so it’s included in your ticket. Super cute & lots of photo opportunities and quaint stores to shop.
Wow. That’s the best word I can use the explain this experience. The location is amazing. Felt like I was in an amusement park (think Fantasy Land in Disneyland) except it was a real castle. Then you walk to the restaurant and it feels like you’ve been transported back into the 1920s. The food was absolutely incredible. We are vegetarian and we finished the entire plate. Lots of great non-vegetarian options as well. Everyone looked very happy. My fiancée was a former flamenco dancer and she said the dancers were absolute pros and it brought a tear to her eyes watching them dance. The singers and the guitarist were fantastic as well. I would highly recommend this and I would go again!
