Nice confiteria right across the road from our tango teacher's studio. We had coffee or lunch there almost every day. It is one of the "cafe notable" coffeeshops, and it is a beautiful place indeed. A tad touristy, but quite pretty :)

Took myself here for a birthday brunch, because who doesnt like white linen tablecloths with sky blue embroidered details? You can order a few different breakfasts combinations here, from a classic coffee /medialuna combo to an omeltte with fruit salad, medialuna, and coffee--very reasonable especial lly considering the level of attention you recieve . I also had a lovely piece... More

This was a worthwhile experience start to finish - my only regret was having too little time to spend there. And my only complaint was having my otherwise superb view repeatedly obstructed by tourists trying to take pictures using iPads. The omnipresent cameras and cellphones are bad enough, but iPads are huge. C'mon, people - have a heart! I love... More

Not wanting to travel cross-town to one of the big-name-steak-parillas, I popped around the corner for a repeat visit to this classy spot mid-afternoon. On my previous visit there I was more than happy with my meal, so 'settled' for local and good. As the waiter handed me the menu he flicked through to the parilla section, and pointed me... More

We booked to have both the meal and the show to make a night of it and thought the food was really nice. Be aware that if you pay cash in dollars its 110 but by card 140. The staek was massive and very tasty. The show had some very good dancers in it and the time went by quickly.... More

I see no way to review only the tango, but I did not have dinner. The Tango at Cafe de los Angelitos- is held in a theatre behind the rather plain looking cafe, but the room opens up to the theatre, large and spacious with a good attempt at elegant decor, but clearly not an old pedigreed theatre. The female... More

A delightful tango show and a nice dinner. I had the steak - a little too tough, heard the chicken was not the best but did hear that those ordering the fish had the better meal. A very nice evening show & dinner.

We've been there twice. Very good service. Very good steak the 2nd time; well overcooked the 1st time but we think this was a translation problem. Salad/vegetables are a bit average but not terrible. Flan casero with ice-cream very good.

Tango dancing - theatrical and good - the food was almost inedible. If you like sitting at a long table with strangers - a little like school dinners - then O.K. - if not, find somewhere else. The only food we managed to eat was the creme brulee and we weren't the only ones leaving almost a full plate of... More

Last week I reported to you on an enjoyable lunch at the “Café de Los Angelitos” and gave a quick review of the history of the Café, one of the famous historical Tango Cafés established in 1890, on the corner of “Avenida Rivadavia” and “Rincon”, where Carlos Gardel, the most famous Argentinean Tango singer, began his career with Jose Razzano...
