It was recommended by our travel agency. we got picked up around 0845pm, it was suppose to be 0800-0830pm. A beautiful orchestra and dancers.Dinnerchoice between salmon, steak or pasta. Very fast service and nice food.

Things we didn't like were trying to sell photoes/souvenirs, very commercialised.
It was the last minute booking and we had to pay on the day and they charged us $15.00 US per person more than what our travel agency quoated even though we paid in cash. So be careful. our travel agency's excuse was they were using official exchange rate instead of black market rate.

With only 4 nights in BA, we knew we'd only have time to see one Tango show, and spent a fair bit of time looking at web sites and reviews. In the end it was our tour company Cultura Cercena that recommeded this one, and we were not disappointed. We selected the VIP dinner package and Cultura arranged to get the tickets for us, we received a substantial discount off the web site price. The VIP package does cost more than others granted, but it in our opinion it was worht the cost. Private transfers to and from the venue, (no waiting after the show), excellant view of the stage from the table ( it wasbalcony railside)and as it turned out a very good meal. After reading lots of reviews I wasn't expecting much from dinner, bur we were all pleasantly surprised. We all ordered steaks (there were 6 of us) every steak, was perfectly done, courses were not rushed, waiters were attentive but not pushy,and the wine was also better than expected. The venue itself is exactly what we expected, beautiful and elegant a great place to showcase Argentine tango. The show starts around 10 and goes to roughly midnight The cailbre of the dancers and performances were top notch. The dancers weave the story of the tango exploring it's many forms from it's early days to modern intrepretations. The latter is spectacular. There are also a few special performances that feature both older and younger dancers, really quite special. It was an absolutely wonderful evening that all of group throughly enjoyed...

First class dinner, service, and especially the show! The live music, singers and dancers were awesome and thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening. And, it started right on time which isn't always the case in Argentina. Highly recommend this show ....tickets available from LandingPadBA.com (excellent service).

Tango is a must if you travel to BA, and this is a great place to watch this country's national dance. The show was fabulous, and the dinner and wines were delicious.

Stunning little theatre, surprisingly good food but the real attraction is the dancing - mesmerising tango.
