Review: Esquina Carlos Gardel
Friday, January 4, 2013
Our experience was a perfect “10” for the Esquina Carlos Gardel Tango Show. The four of us elected to be picked up at our hotel, and chose the dinner and tango show. We booked at the recommendation of our travel agent, and we are certainly happy with the choice! The shuttle arrived five minutes early, made a couple more stops at nearby hotels, and then we were delivered to the theatre’s front door at 8:45 pm. Our server, Cecelia, was prompt and attentive. The staff checked to be certain that we were satisfied with our seating, and we were. Dinner was a choice from half dozen appetizers, 4 entrees, and 4 desserts. We all made different selections, and all were 100% satisfied with the food and the service. There were generous refills of all drinks, soda, water, or wine. The white wine was not as good as the red, which was entirely drinkable. As we’d been told, the performance began at approx. 10 pm and lasted until midnight. All the dancers were skilled, their costumes intriguing, and the entire show was a joy to watch. There was a 7-piece orchestra. Some other reviewers have complained about the food. OK, it’s “dinner theatre,” and for that, the food was excellent. Book online for the best price, paying with a credit card or Pay Pal. Also, call as soon as you get in to Buenos Aires to confirm the night of your reservation, and the time that you’ll be picked up at your hotel. (Ours was not 100% accurate; not sure where the error occurred however we straightened it out with the ticket office.) Then, prepare to enjoy the show!
