Like the germans said: Schade. I had to wait for the car for 45 minutes at least, because was missed. The food was normal and the waiter...without words. I think that he is not so happy to work there. Forget about the tip.

Gala Tango (at La Ventana) has a beautiful setting, nice atmosphere, delicious food and an excellent tango show. With a little of folk from the north west this is the perfect night out to sample Argentina's famous dance. Considering the food was better than some of the popular restaurants we visited, this was also a good value for money. Dinner... More

One of the best tango shows we had ever seen. The band with several violins, the piano and two Bandoneones (Argentines accordions) is extraordinary. They start with the classic tango show, then continues with a Gaucho Show and when you believe it’s all over another tango dance continues producing you a complete ecstasy of TANGO and emotion. Very good dancer,... More

Great dinner, great tango show and even a cool gaucho dance. It was intimate and sexy and I would recommend bring a crisp $100 bill to get in. I received a highly favorable rate for giving a $100 bucks cash.

This is my third tango show at BA. The venue has fewer seatings than the two previous I attended. This show was less tourist oriented. The folk music and the gaucho dance was a nice interlude from the tango dancing. We had the dinner and show package. Our seats were at the front row. The food was average. The cocktail... More

First dinner was served, after which there were tango dancing demonstrations for more than two hours. Sometimes there was one couple, sometimes multiple couples; singing, with and without dancers; bolo demonstration and gaucho dancing, all accompanied by two violinists, an indigenous stringed instrument, bass, piano, and accordion. Having never seen a tango show, we found it very informative and enjoyable.

We visited La Ventana as part of a City Drive organised by Princess Cruises. We were there for lunch and a show. The show was a mazing - it lasted nearly two hours and was most enjoyable. The lunch was a choice of three items and I had what was described as 'Baby Beef' . It turned out to be... More

Deals for this venue are freely available all over the net at $90 so why pay more. We booked through an Agency and it included all transportation, dinner and the show. Dinner was nothing special but it was ok....wine was served and other drinks were for sale. We experienced no mafia style staff....yes they tried to sell you extras but... More

In Buenos Aires there's tango everywhere. Especially on the streets and little restaurants on the weekends. Why pay an exorbitant amount of money to see more tango? La Ventana was overpriced. The food was really bad and the show was only okay. Not worth the money. Not at all.

We started by reserving this show online for 140$ USD per person only to find it being sold at $90 USD in our hotel (and in every other hotel in BA for that matter). The rip off continues as you walk in and are given the opportunity to "take a picture" with two tango dancers. I asked to use my... More
