I was pleased with the menu and the show. Be prepared that no beverages are included in the price so anything you request would be paid for seperately. It was one of the more affordable Tango shows and locals come here as well!

The food is appalling - but the good news is that you can have a few drinks and see the show without eating. When we visited there were quite a few Argentinians, and NONE of them had dinner as far as we could see. I paid by credit card and was told no less then 4 times that service was... More

This is not a high-end glitzy show in an ornately decorated theatre. It is much more down to earth but still very enjoyable. The big advantage is its intimacy. The maximum capacity is probably not much more than sixty yet we were able to book a table the night before which was right beside the stage. Many of the tango... More

Pros - ability to book and pay easily on line without going through hotels or agencies. Good dancing by all pairs (though we're no tango experts), efficient service by hosts and servers - drink delivery, check settling, etc. Small venue - good visibility from most tables. Tables not ridiculously close. Conveniently nearby for us (we were staying in San Telmo).... More

We got here following a recommendation, indeed it was a good show and not as touristic as these things might get. We booked it ourselves on their website, they accept PayPal transfer and were in all very nice. We took only the show, a good option if you want to save the expensive dinner.

We did alot of research before we decided on this one and we found that many peoples reviews complained of the price of the tango/dinners shows ($150+ at some places) and the poor quality of the food/service and tourist trap rip off, e.g. open bar but never being able to find a waitress to get a drink, poor quality wine,...

A friend who had visited Buenos Aires recommended Taconeando as a little less touristy than some of the other offerings. She indicated that at the end of the show they go around and ask where people are from. During their show, they were the only Americans. It was the exact same for us with plenty of other Latin American countries... More

Taconeando is not a hotspot, but it offers à wonderful sentimental journey through the history of tango. If you go - which I would recommend strongly - pay special attention to the superb bandoleon player. He has melancholy written all over him.

This was a great night of Tango away from the "tango-mills" of 500+ tourists ... lots of locals, people from Brazil, US and Romania. We expected great stake and got it ... we expected exceptional dancers and got that too ... service was pleasant; There was good interaction between audience and entertainers (you still enjoy it if you have no...

This was the best priced show we could find. The place and the show (about an hour and a half of tango and singing) were great, the dinner (included) and then wine (not included) were ok. Would definitely recommend it
