The tango show was well rehearsed and choreographed and technically very good but lacked the passion you see in street tango. But it is a show after all. However the show had different acts and our favourite act was by far the gaucho accompanied by Indian musicians. The food was better than we expected especially as there was a lot... More

We had until the end a good experience with this show . Nice place , the food is regular but good , and the show VERY good. Nevertheless everything started to get wrong at the end . They tell you they pick you up and drive you back at the end in your hotel. Already 45 min from our hotel... More

The tango shows in Buenos Aires are expensive, because it is the "thing to do" for tourists, and they are willing to pay for it. Sure it's pricey, but I think it's worth doing once. Because after all, you ARE a tourist. We read through the reviews of the various tango shows (there are a lot of them) and settled... More

It's a good show because it's diversified - not just traditional tango but also gaucho performances and singing. Turn offs the waiters ask if you want a drink but fail to mention it's not included in your package. He does mention that the tip is not included. They should be upfront. Photos are taken upon arrival $10 - not bad... More

Transport to the show didn't arrive at the scheduled time, nor even an hour and a half later, which even by South American standards is late! Our hotel receptionist phoned La Ventana and was were told the car was just around the corner. Half an hour later, this nearby car still hadn't arrived, so the hotel staff phoned again. A... More

This is the 3rd time I have been to the Ventana tangoshow in Calle Balcarse. The dansers are Fantastic, their clothing is authentic and the decor of the ballroom is so much Buenos Aires. You Can choose tickets with or without dinner. The dinner is Nice.

I am not a fan of dance shows, but watching each of these couples perform in front of a very talented tango band was very enjoyable. Tango is uniquely Argentine. It is sexy and sensual and the dancers bring it to life. The singers we're also very enjoyable and hearing "Don't cry for me Argentina" in Espanol with the schmaltzy... More

We really enjoyed this Tango show very much. The combination of Tango and Gaucho music, dances and acrobatic acts really made us feel a bit of the culture in Argentina. The food was ok but due to the number of people visiting the show the service was too rushed so that we were waiting long times and got the aperitive... More

We were advised by our hotel that we should see a tango show while in Buenos Aires. To be fair, I picked this one myself and regretted it. The show is set in a very pretty restaurant where the food is decent but not exceptional. The show starts in between the main course and dessert. There is an option of... More
