A wonderful and exciting show. They literally put their "hairs on end" when they heard and saw the artists. It is the third time that I go to a flamenco tablao and I will surely repeat. The place, an old winery from the eighteenth century, a spacious place with a lot of charm. Dinner, tapas type, at the level of a traditional dinner. And the staff, extremely friendly and efficient. The price seemed more than adequate and the anti-COVID measures, perfect.

The experience was terrific. We are particularly regulars of flamenco shows. This surpassed our experience elsewhere. The truth was very good. You cannot visit Jerez without seeing this show. Good food, good show.

The passion, the skill, the story-telling and talent of every single member of this group was moving - beautiful!

Maria was helpful knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. We had a lovely evening. Thank you Maria
