Every Saturday evening, and with additional shows during summer and special holidays, our world-class Flamenco Dinner Show is an exciting experience. (Flamenco Show ticket cost is $30pp, in addition to the meal cost.)  One is reminded of the caves in Granada where Flamenco shows are performed. Our shows are intensely passionate and highly charged.  Advance Reservations Required.
