Everything was great, but the flamenco show was much too short (30min only). After the show, lovely salsa music came on but there was nowhere to dance.

About Kanela Tapas Bar

Attention Matadors! Fitzroy’s Kanela Tapas Bar is one for the books! This place plates up delicious tapas, all to the joyous performance of Flamenco dancers. That’s right, sit with your fried potato and salsa and watch as the graceful entrancing dancers take you away. Be careful not to drop any food on your lapel – the performance will take your eyes off the task at hand. Except for the great big bull’s head stuck behind the bar that will also grab your attention. Better not flash anything red! This place is actually owned by the family of Johnny and Richard Tedesco, two of Spain’s most well-known Flamenco dancers. And there’s a dancing study upstairs. Aside from the tapas, there are also excellent paellas to share. We recommend the seafood paella with its scrumptious prawns and slurpy mussels. This place is as popular with the expat crowd as it is with curious Melbournians, so you know you’re getting something truly Spanish when you come to Kanela. Whether you’ve never seen Flamenco or are coming back for more, Kanela will make this an experience to remember. Best dish: seafood paella
