He estado en varios sitios de flamenco en España, tanto en Madrid como en Sevilla. El show del Arenal es el mejor que he visto hasta el momento. De igual manera la comida es excelente y la relación calidad precio muy adecuada. Recomiendo pasar por el Arenal en Sevilla.
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.
The flamenco show at Tablao Flamenco El Arenal blew us away! It was beautiful and passionate. The food and wine were also very good. However, we experienced a little confusion and frustration with our waiter regarding dinner. It wasn't clear that we were supposed to order off the menu, we thought we were getting a pre-bought 3 course dinner via the tour. When we explained this in English and through Google Translate, our waiter got frustrated and just left us sitting there for 15 minutes while other people got served. No attempt was made to get another waiter to communicate with us. We eventually figured it out on our own and placed the order but it kinda ruined the beginning of the experience. Thankfully the food and flamenco made up for it!
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.
