The Flamenco Show was one of the most beautiful experiences ever in my life. Most of us audiences teared up with the passionate, heartfelt performances of the dancers and singers. The food with the show was nothing to talk about. And the show at El Arenal was so much more fulfilling and superlative than that of Casa de la Memoria! Highly recommended show, but skip the foods if needed.
If one does not know Flamenco, then this is probably a good "intro" show. It was well organized and the setting (location, décor, staging, seating, etc) makes a positive impression. We had the tapas and wine included in the price---both were just average. The Flamenco singers and dancers were good and clearly had many years of experience. We saw other Flamenco shows in small locals afterwards; and, because we had had the Tablao El Arenal as a benchmark, we were able to recognize better, smaller shows that were less well organized, but were a fraction of the costs and in locales with great food and wine. Now I would never go to one of the "tourist" shows (like Tablao El Arenal) hocked on every corner. However, I think one time it is worth it; and even necessary to set the bar.
