About the Show

Venta El Gallo is located in the Sacromonte quarter of Granada, overlooking the Alhambra and Albaicin neighborhood. This quarter of the city is famous for its cave houses as well as widely known in the flamenco world as the birthplace of Zambra style flamenco. Zambra style flamenco is a typical form of flamenco often performed in gypsy weddings and is now a popular style for shows in the caves of Sacromonte. This Zambra style of flamenco is the highlight of the performances in Venta El Gallo.

The setting, in a traditional cave home within the Sacromonte quarter of Granada, is an important part of the atmosphere of the flamenco show in Venta El Gallo. Up to ten different performers take part in the two nightly shows, and seating along the whitewashed cave walls give spectators a close up view of some of the city's best flamenco artists. This is one of the best reasons to attend a flamenco show in the caves of Sacromonte: the proximity to the performance is contagious, where guests will feel the true passion and color of traditional flamenco. The cave itself holds up to one hundred forty people. There are options for the show with drink or a fixed price menu. The restaurant, serves typical and traditional cuisine from Granada, with an arab-andalusí influence.

Venta El Gallo also offers a transportation service (round trip) to pick up guests from city center locations (direct pickup from some hotels along the route is possible).


We’re taken there after a private tour of Granada and Albaicin…the show was fantastic and inexpensive compared to other venues. They include a drink with the price of admission and they also offer food for additional fee.
Dissapointed. Bad experience -I read about this place in a guidebook, it was described as authentic. Maybe it was in the past but now it's not. It's a typical tourist trap. -The staff (owner and manager) are scammers and very dishonest they seat people who had prepaid in bad places to leave the good ones for those who arrive later. (See pictures and story below). -Neither the food nor the show were worth the money spent on this. I would recommend finding other alternatives in Granada. But if you want to try this place, insist on sitting in a good place because they will try to seat you at the back saying that other seats are "reserved". -Dinner is extremely overpriced, such menus are usually for 20-25 euros maximum. You can simply have some drinks in the terrace, and then go to the show. - Dinner is served in two places, on the terrace (which is why I made the reservation in this place) and in the cave, behind the spectators of the show (which is where we were actually seated). When I asked the manager why can't we have dinner on the terrace, he said that it's completely full right now. I went up to see and as you see in the pictures there were 3 empty tables(see pictures) - After I went up and took the pictures the owner came so I told her that we weren't asked where we wanted to have dinner, and that the manager said that the terrace was full while in fact it wasn't at all. She said that "it's because they are reserved". Which is not true because while I was upstairs the same guy asked a waitress if there are empty tables for some people who had just arrived!!!! After ALOT of arguing, the owner said that if we want "later we can have a drink on the terrace". Obviously we didn't because we were already disgusted with everything in that place. -As for the show, the female dancers are not great. The male dancers, the singer and the guitarist were very good.
We went for dinner and a show. Dinner was on the terrace and overlooked the Alhambra which was amazing to see at sunset. The food was good but it’s a lot of food to eat before the show. We rushed to get through the cheese plate, entree and dessert. The dining area was small and there is a long narrow staircase up there so be careful! Service was great! Our waiter was funny and helpful. The show was amazing and worth it! We had been to Corral de la Moreria in Madrid and we think the dancers here were better. The seating area for the show is small. We were told it would be cramped and that was correct; it is in a cave after all! The show was only an hour though. They were also kind enough to call us a cab at the end of the show. There is only one restroom for each gender on the first floor so the lines at the end of the show will be long. The venue is also on the top of a steep hill and cabs don’t take you all the way up to the front door. Be ready to walk!
Our hotel booked this Flamenco dinner show for us. I am not a picky person, but for €62 per person (including transportation) this was extremely disappointing. Much of what we wanted to eat was not available and what we did order came to us cold or lukewarm at best. They did take it back and reheat it for us. The meat had no flavor at all and the flan was just horrid. The show was ok. The guitarist and dancers were quite good. It is an option to go and just see the show with drinks and I wish we had opted for that. The cave the venue it is built into is quite quirky, which can be a good thing. Personally for me, it just wasn’t very good.
AS a flamenco lover, I would say that this tablao offers really good flamenco show .Dancers and musicians are perfect!!! However, there is a HUGE drawback for this place: it is the hall itself. Looks like there was a round placement is the past, but show owners decided to earn more money and just get as many spectators as possible (without thinking if people really enjoy) You HAVE to see dancers' legs to fully understand and feel flamenco. However, the hall is TOTALLY flat, so people in the first 2 rows can see what you need, but all the rest can see just heads and the upper body parts. It is extremely bad if you are not a tall man or a child (as our 3 y.o. son) In addition, waiters are moving DURING the show decreasing visibility to even worst quality!!! SO, unless you are in the first rows in the hall -> not recommended if you really want to see flamenco. There are another tablao shows (in caves in particular) with the better accommodation.
Lovely little place with attentive staff. The flamenco was of a very high quality. We had a couple of short power cuts during the performance, but I had the impression that the people running the place worked hard to fix it and they cared their guests had a good experience.
