El Ombu de Areco Estancia is a traditional ranch located in San Antonio de Areco, at the heart of gaucho (cowboy) country and an easy drive from Buenos Aires. On this tour, spend an entire day at the estancia, with activities including horseback riding, a traditional ‘asado’ barbecue lunch, and a thrilling gaucho show.

I have to qualify my review in that I returned to Buenos Aires this afternoon from Ushuaia, after a 2 week trip to Antarctica. How things have changed due to the coronavirus! Virtually everything is shut down (museums, parks, shows, etc). When I checked into my hotel (HTL 9 we Julio), the receptionist called Madero Tango to see if they are open tonight. Thankfully they were one of the few still open and got me a reservation - payable at the venue. The deal was USD43 for return transfer, show and 3 course dinner with unlimited wine, beer & soft drink. 8:30pm coach pick up. Thankfully I was one of the last to be picked up from the hotel lobby. Once you get dropped off, you head inside to one of the three counters for them to find your reservation and give you a small ticket with a barcode, Wi-Fi password and return transfer time. Then you join another queue to make payment. Credit card, USD 43 and Argentine 3,225 pesos accepted. Their exchange rate sucked, but I am still holding a lot of pesos and won't have many opportunities to use it all up. As today is Sunday (15 March 2020) banks nor bureau de change were easily found. Fortunately I was sat on the front side table of 8, but only sharing it with a Brazilian couple. They were adorable, middle aged and still in love! 9:10pm food started to arrive. My waiter, Julio, got the orders wrong for the couple and I on more the one occasion. He was apologetic. But with the show at 70% full at best, this lack of attentiveness was not expected. Even that would have been fine, if our waiter didn't keep interrupting us when the show finally started - urging us to fill in a comments form and gave us a laminated card requesting 10% tip. The food was beautifully presented but mediocre in taste, but I wasn't here for the gourmet cuisine. I had a pumpkin mousse for starter, chicken with sweet potato mash for main and an awfully soggy imitation red velvet cake for dessert. The tango show eventually started at 10:30pm. To call it a tango show is not correct, as half the time it was filled with singing and modern dance. Either way, I did enjoy the show element, as I have nothing else to compare with. hTe minibus drop off was more chsllenging. Everyone wanted to get home quickly, but door to door took

Super crowded place (they put 10 ppl in a 8-ppl table), terrible drinks (wine is undrinkable - tastes like vinegar), half of the table has no view to the stage, super delayed transfers, among other traps. They sell it as the place with the view for the Puerto Marero. Truth is you can't see anything (neither the stage nor the Puerto Madero). I regret a lot to have visited it. It would be better to stay sleeping at the hotel than going there...

"Tourist trap" - will be my words to qualify the in 2 words. To detail it more, i will put it in 2 categories: pro and cons. Pro: Dancers where good. I'm not an expert on tango, but i liked this part. Pickup from hotel, so it quite easy for a tourist first time in buenos aires. Cons: Everything was crowded, in order to produce more money. Bad visibility. If you are front on front rows central, don't expect too much. Even if they have some TVs on the wall, the visibility is not so good for the price they charge. Food and drinks, For a country with a rich couisine, food and wines are more than disappointing. Story is all in spanish. Which is understandable, but show didn't made too much sense. Story begin with origins of tango in poor neighbours, then out of nothing a song of evita "don't cry for me Argentina", again dance and closure with scenes of tango from movies. At the end they hand over some leaflets of recommended 10% tip, which is annoying considering the priced they charge. Overall feeling is disappointing and gives sensation of greedy: big place to grab your money for lousy services. My recommendation is to try to find more authentic places in this beautiful city.

We bought the tickets online, chose the VIP as per the website it would have a good view to the stage. As we got there they were having a hard time finding our reservation and they wanted to seat us in a table just behind a pillar with absolute no view to the stage. The lady suggested us to have dinner and after we could move our chairs to assume other space where we could see the show. I speak fluent Spanish so we asked for a better view seat as we have paid for it, after some resistance they sent us to another table closest to the very back of the saloon so we watched the show from behind... The food was ok but we have got our main course at the same time the show started and we were sitting with our backs to the stage and we could hardly see what we were eating. The place is overcrowded, they sell very bad seats at a VIP charge, on the way out we notice there are several tables with very bad view of the stage. The show and the dancers are very good but we were very disappointed as we were expecting a show like "Esquina Gardel" which unfortunately closed about 3 years ago. That was a perfect tango show with excellent dinner!

I did not expect an entertainment venue to offer good food. However, the meal was excellent. Additionally, the service was superb. The servers were courteous and attentive. The show itself was dazzling. It was full of energy and tango moves that were not to be believed. This was a fantastic evening.
