About the Show

Tablao El Arenal takes its name from the Arenal neighborhood in Seville between the Cathedral and the Guadalquivir river. The central location, just a few blocks from the Maestranza bullring, is within a typical 17th century Andalusian building which has been transformed into an intimate performance space in the style of the traditional tablaos. The venue has a capacity for up 110 guests and Tablao El Arenal holds two nightly performances which last approximately 60 minutes and feature some of Seville's best flamenco.

Founded over 25 years ago, several of the regular artists have won national and international dance awards. Tablao El Arenal has also been designated as the best flamenco show in Seville by the New York Times. The performance consists of seventeen different artists who cover a variety of the flamenco palos (styles), always with the dedication to offer a pure and authentic show. The performers’ inspiration comes from Curro Velez, former dancer as well as founder and owner of the tablao, who once said "I was born in Triana and I am a gypsy. What I present is truly authentic; the wealth of popular Andalusian flamenco culture that has taken on a universal dimension through those who share my blood".

The decoration and atmosphere in the main dining room is pure Andalusian. Several antique prints and flamenco posters line the walls, featuring themes typical of Seville such as the April Fair. Seating is around three quarters of the stage.  As a smaller venue Tablao El Arenal offers a good view from any location in the room.

Reviews

Very expensive. Must be on the "list" to get tourists in. As highly recommended by the Tourist Information. Service was quick and efficient. The food was delicious. Dancers were great, but all very staged. You weren't able to take photos or videos. Was an expensive experience. Probably worthwhile looking for a local bar who did Flamenco....
My wife and I really enjoyed this show when we were in Seville. Would highly recommend a Flamenco performance for any first timers to Spain. Dancers and vocalists were great. Very entertaining and authentic demonstration by the entire cast. Buy tickets ahead of time, as the shows sell out quickly.
Good performance. A bit noisy from heel tapping during the show. Ticket is more expensive than other organizers. No Parking space nearby.
We were recommended this place by a local friend, and it did not disappoint at ALL. We opted for the full dinner, and it’s a good thing we did because the food was AMAZING. So so so delicious. (Pictured is the appetizer!) the wait staff was working very hard and did a great job. Everything was timed perfectly. The bottle of red was 10/10. The champagne to finish was a nice touch. For the second plate, I chose the salmon avocado mix and it was so delicious- I recommend! All of the performers were superb, but we especially enjoyed the male dancer! We loved his energy and his style. Arrive early for the line just to get as close to the stage as possible! We were towards the back and still had a great view though. I respect the “no camera” policy. Put your phone down, enjoy the beauty. Nothing ruins a show more than being blocked by others phones. It was 100% worth the price of a full dinner and show. So happy we got to experience something so special and traditional.
This show is located on a quiet street away from the busier areas, but it is very well lit, and you can't miss the well marked entrance. There is no seating plan, so the earlier you get to the door before your time, the better the seat. Doors open exactly at the time specified, and there will be a lineup on the sidewalk. They are quick to seat people and be prepared to quickly decide what choices you want. You get a bottle of wine per two people, or sangria, or non-alcoholic drinks. There is an aperitif (no choice of drink) and water. There is a taster before the meal arrives - again, no choice, just a small mix of each type. You pick the appetizer, main and dessert for each person. After that, the items come out in quick succession after each plate is finished. The show is amazing - four 15-minute shows to fill the hour. The music, singing and dancing was top-notch. There really isn't a bad seat in the place, although a pole or two may block your view for a moment. I highly recommend this dinner and show. The meal was very good, and as mentioned, you'll love the show. Thanks.
We enjoyed a lot, food was amazing, and the show was incredible - the dancers and singers really passed their emotions, pain, history and passion thru their performance to us. It was really incredible for the price we paid. We took a dinner with flamenco show, the menu was a set menu (you need to chose the main course, starters and deserts), everything was a lot, including drinks (they brought full bottle of wine for 2 people). Each meal was very tasty, well presented and well served.
