This was amazing! I recommend to come one hour before and book a tabla for dinner! The place is very high up i the street so be prepared to walk a while to get there! The BEST evening of this vacation. The flamingo and the place is FANTASTIC!

Incredible cast, singer, guitarist, violinist and dancers. A 10. We had never seen a tablao and we recommend it as an experience in Granada. Then they offer you dinner there in their garden.
