The Tablao de Carmen pays tribute to the great flamenco dancer, Carmen Amaya, born in 1913 in the gypsy quarter of Somorrostro which then existed in what is today Barcelona's Olympic Village. Carmen Amaya made her debut in 1929 before King Alfonso XII on the site which is today the Tablao de Carmen at the inauguration of Poble Espanyol de Montjuic.

What a fantastic experience. This is not plastic-tourist flamenco, but the real deal, with passion and temperament. The location is wonderful, and so is the food. Try it!

Do I have to purchase tickets ahead of time? Can i just walk up to the village at 4-5 pm and get tickets for the same evening? Would those tickets allow us access to the village? Is the show kid friendly? Is it very loud? Thanks!

You should definitely buy the tickets in advance. If you have the tickets, you can enter into the village early without a fee. The show is kid friendly, there were children of all ages there.

Vegetarian dishes are available? I could see in menu majority of things are non vegetarian. Please suggest so that I would book for the beer and tapas menu instead of dinner. Thanks.

Instead of ordering from Dinner menu, probably better to order Tapas and drinks. And you always can go to Downtown Barcelona after show to find many good restaurants to eat vegetarian dishes.
