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

Absolutely stunning experience, a definite must in Barcelona. We had an amazing dinner and show, 4 different dancers and two segments while enjoying fillet mignon with a group of enthusiastic tourists.
For having a delicious meal and experiencing the culture of Spain, a visit to Tablao de Carmen is a must. The music is wonderful and the performances were full of passion. It is an experience you do not want to miss and a lovely tribute to one of the most famous Flamenco dancers of all time. Bravo!
The Tablao de Carmen dinner and Flamenco show were amazing! The food and entertainment were both well worth the money. It was a true authentic flamenco show with numerous dancers and music. It was an added bonus to be able to walk through Poble Espanyol. The only issue we had was that people attending the show were a bit rude pushing to get into the small entry and to the tables. I would recommend letting people know that they have assigned reservations (tables) so maybe they don't feel the need to push their way in.
The location of the restaurant was very unique, set inside what is supposed to be an older section of a town? Very pretty to walk around the area- there were shops around but were close when we arrived. The show was wonderful. You could tell the performers were enjoying themselves, cheering each other on and excited to showcase their talents. Really enjoyed the performance. We got the tapas menu- it was just ok but as expected when you are cooking for a large group at the same exact arrival times. Nothing was bad, nothing was amazing. You go to this show for the performance which did not disappoint. Thank you!
Absolutely stunning show, performances, food, and service. We booked about 3 weeks in advance for the 6PM, Flamenco & Tapas show. My husband & I enjoyed every minute of it - I would love to visit again the next time I’m in Barcelona!
Amazing experience, highly recommend! Live singing, music, and dancing with great food in a nice atmosphere. The show takes place in a little village that usually requires a paid ticket to enter, but you get in free with the show ticket. My friend and I got the tapas and were worried it wouldn’t be enough food for dinner, but it was more than enough, and delicious! The dancers are so talented, and the show itself is very entertaining. Even if you are not familiar with dance performance, this show will hold your attention until the last moment. It was a great experience to end our trip in Barcelona
