“Great show and time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

We went to this show a couple of years ago while visiting Buenos Aires. We had a great time and wonderful seats. Best empanadas I've had in a long time too. I would recommend this show to anyone who likes tango or is interested in a cultural evening out. We enjoyed it even more after visiting La Boca earlier in the day.

*we visited in March 2009

“Favourite tango show in Buenos Aires”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

So far, this is my favourite tango show in Buenos Aires. The antique theater setting, the orchestra, the singers and dancers are just so beautiful! Food is okay, but show is excellent!

“A great introduction to tango”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We took the full monty deal with hotel pick-up, dinner and show for about 500 or so Argentinian Pesos. The hotel pick-up was good service (it was written on his shirt, "Good Service"!), and considering we had to cross some pretty dodgy areas to get to the show, it was nice that it was taken care of. In opposition to a lot of the other reviewers, we thought the food was great. 3-4 options for entre and main, and the speed of service was incredibly prompt. One of the people in our group had arguably their favourite steak of their trip in Argentina. Unfortunately the chatter about the wines is true - it was pretty cheap rubbish, and worse, they turned the tap off during the show. The auditorium was clean and grand, and the standard of dancing for the untrained eye was fantastic, plenty of young talent and even an elder couple showing how it is done. A great introduction to Tango.

“Cool place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Food is really good but the way they serve it in considered a little fast you just can not enjoy your meal slowly you feel like they are always ready to take your plate to bring you another one.
The Show is fine! I have seen better!

“Every part of show is exciting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Not being a show-person, seeing a tango performance was still a must-do event on visiting Buenos Aires. My husband is a fan of Carlos Gardel and his significance in the tango being moved from unseemly to socially acceptable.

The show was More than I could have hoped for. Every performance was stunning in coreography, costumes, music. Even without know the words of the singer, it was still engaging.

The dinner was nothing to speak of, you choose one starter, one entree, one dessert. The wine or water is kept flowing until the show begins.

This was well worth the money. What was not worth spending money were the US$20 photos taken of us, one on arrival and one at the table. If they had been maybe $10, we would have purchased. Also, it was sad to not be able to walk away with some kind of photo of the performance to remember it by (but no flash photography).
