Came here on a tour from our MSC cruise ship and did the dinner and show, which was better as the show only tour leaves you there for almost as long so sitting on uncomfortable seats for much longer. If you do the dinner, you have a sort of box for 6 people, starting around a table at the rear of the balcony (seating tight, but fairly comfortable cushioned benches) for the meal, then move to individual seats overlooking the performance area.
If you have any choice over seat location for the dinner (we didn't) ideally avoid "boxes" near the corners that have views partially obscured by lighting poles, and aim to be opposite the stage area where the orchestra are.
Food reasonable (starter, steak main, and dessert) with a couple of glasses of drink. Not sure whether you could buy extra drink, but the wine was not that good, so we didn't ask. Staff spoke limited english.
Excellent dancing to start, then the singing and chatting in Portuguese by Fernando Soler. On the night we were there, there seemed to be an extra bit by an old former conductor and several old former musicians. The show finishes with a spectacular patriotic finale.

Were it not for the ever-presence of Senor Tango himself I might have been tempted to give the show maximum points. The show comprises of a number of dances from different ages with a spectacular start and finish which I will not go into detail so as not to spoil it.
Youy can opt to eat a full meal there or just have drinks and nibbles consisting of hams and cheeses. We chose the latter and I am glad we did because being in the circle position I actually think we had a better view than those on the ground who were dining.
Senor Tango kept popping up throughout the show including in the screen backdrop but when he did a solo slot lasting around 40 minutes of the 2 hour show it felt like death by a thousand cuts. He is supremely confident of his entertainment value, bordering on arrogance and conceit and teh show would be that much better if he did a maximum of 10 minutes, 5 minutes woudl be even better.
Worth a visit if you can put up with the old crooner himself, he is no Frank Sinatra!

Loved it. My wife and I each chose a different dinner (we like to share). Food was delicious. The tango show was a history of the dance from then to now. Dancers, dancing, costumes, band were all terrific. The only criticism we both had was that there was no indication of the era being represented. You had to guess by the costumes being worn. We were concerned that we would just be going to a tourist trap. Well, it is for tourists of course, but was very entertaining and a good value for the money.

We went two years ago and we had a much better show as during our last visit. Unfortunately the artist of the show, Fernando Soler, took 20 minutes in the middle of the show to talk and make jokes with the public, BUT we went to see the tango dancers, not to listen to a guy talking. Also very obvious that the lady singer was not singing live... For the rest, very good food, not cheap, nice place and the waiter asking for his tip, before the show ended.

Not Great. The dancing is great, but there's not nearly enough of it. There's about a 45 minute segment where there's no dancing, but the "star" sings a serious of songs with so much reverb and echo that it's barely listenable. He also converses with audience members and thinks he's cute and clever. Fine, sing all you want while people are dancing. Then what was really strange, despite having a very good house band; another group of musicians come on to the stage to play Tango songs, again with NO DANCING!!! It finishes with a bizarre Eva Peron tribute. That food was very mediocre and so was the service.

I'm from Uruguay living in the States for 35 years. My Spanish is fine. 3 families (14 people), some of whom did not understand Spanish visited Buenos Aires and the Sheraton recommended this show. It started great, but then turned into 3 hours of torture. There were kids in our party, so at 1:00 AM on a Sunday, after a few VERY inappropriate acts, I asked for the van to drive us back to the Hotel. Mr. Martin Madero (who knows if that was his real name) told me that he was in charge of transportation and that vans left ONLY after the show was over. I tried to reason that there were kids falling asleep and that we covered 1 full van for 14 people and he got plain nasty. He told me to take cabs but that they wouldn't pay for them. I asked for a supervisor and nothing. So I asked what options I had and they said "you can write your complaints in our book of complaints." Knowing this would get me nowhere but with little other choice I started writing that the show stunk and that their customer service was horrendous. As I'm writing, the owner/producer of the show (they guys who sings the Tangos simply took the book out of my hand and he and his goons began cursing at me, threatening me and accusing me of being drunk (I wasn't). I tried to explain that all I wanted to do was for them to take us back to the hotel, but nothing doing. The situation was truly combustible, so I tried to leave the scene but the goons surrounded me. At that point, anything would have happened, except that the guy (who I'm sure was drunk (had to go back on stage). Once he did, a lady (I don't know if it was the wife, girlfriend, manager or whatever began talking to me as a human being. She asked what the problem was. I told her all I wanted to do was to get a ride back to the Hotel which she organized, much to Mr. Madero's consternation in about 30 seconds. 10 minuted later we were at our Hotel. I love Buenos Aires and its people. Maybe this guy had a bad day, but I cannot forgive him for ruining mine. I would recommend that you AVOID this show and try another one. Hope this helps!

Here in Brazil, if you travel to Buenos Aires and you dont go do Señor Tango, people will say that you trip wasnt complete. We traveled to Buenos Aires on may 2008, and, of course, we bought the tango show wiht dinner at Señor Tango.

It is soooo slow....that looks like - señor tango chinese torture. They start with a history of Argentine (with horses...indians....bla bla bla). And you start do think - OK...OK...TANGO, PLEASE.... - they change to two women singing....(tango tango!!! where???). Then the show really starts when you start to think - WHY DID I PAY FOR IT???? - When Fernando Soler (he owner the place) starts to sing (he has a good voice), he sings...talks....sings...talks...and you stay there for 2 hours (if you only go to the show, if you go to dinner, you stay there more then 3 hours!!!!). It has everything....even a tango show!

Ah, and the waiters: they really dont care if you speak spanish or not. They say, very fast - POSTRE, if you dont know that is a dessert, they dont came back when you discover what they were offering.

We took four friends to see Sr. Tango (having seen and enjoyed the show twice previously) and were disgusted by Sr. Soler's egotistical "improvements". We paid top dollar, and were seated behind a pillar, with a robot television camera permanently blocking our view. I was so disgusted at the whole situation I left the theatre during Soler's interminable waffle and over amplified "singing". The food was fair, the wine was good, but sparse, The dancers were excellent, but I paid to see a show, not feel like a TV studio audience. To the wait staff - Marcelo - I aplogize for such a poor "propina", but someone owes me a refund on the US1000 that it cost me and my group to "not - watch" this self indulgent pompous goose.

I came here because I was excited to see a tango show in Argentina. The show itself was fantastic - no complaints there. However, it was really difficult to watch the show because the waiter was constantly interrupting us, demanding more money than we agreed to pay.

I can't help but think we were being taken advantage of since we did not speak Spanish. Our hotel concierge recommended the place, and she gave us several other great recommendations, so I think she must have had a better experience. We were given a certain price for the meal, show, transport, and wine. We were told that we could pay with credit card. However, when we got there, they charged for wine separately and then demanded a large tip, only to be paid in cash. We did not have enough cash for the tip they were demanding, and we spent most of the show going back and forth about it. At the least, I wish they would have discussed the issues during dinner or after the show. It really put a sour taste in my mouth and ruined the experience!! It cost way too much money to be treated that way. I would choose a different tango show next time.

Senior Tango is a solid commercial product aimed at the mass tourist market in Buenos Aires. For those visitors that are true Tango purists, this show is not for you. What you get here is a big Vegas style production with a large amount of extras, two live bands and 10 very good solo dancers but modern show Tango is just a part of the show itself. It also includes some traditional Folk dances... and depending on the day of the week you may have some stand up comedy as well. All in all, the show is a solid entretainment product that has professional dancers in a solid overall production... in my view it is well worth a visit, but please note that if you are a purist or want something that focuses only on Tango you may end up getting something different to what you are looking for.
