A relatively new restaurant in Gran Via, La Flamenca offers patrons a great dining experience. We’ve been twice, and have been impressed by the quality of food and the price both times.
Tapas and montaditos are the highlights of the menu, as well as a decent wine selection. We ordered a large variety of things, and were most impressed and horrified by the cheese plate — these are extremely strong cheeses not for the faint of heart! We also loved the huevos a la pobre, which was a large plate of perfectly cooked eggs to share. The wine from Utiel was delicious and fairly priced.
As the name indicates, La Flamenca offers live flamenco music, as an accompaniment to dinner — but only on Thursday evenings. It’s pleasant; not so much a performance as a fun backdrop to an evening out with friends.
Make sure to get reservations for Thursdays and on weekends, as the restaurant is smallish and fills up quickly!
