“Highlight of Buenos Aires”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

We had previously attended a formal tango+dinner show in BA & would advise anyone not to and to go to La Catedral instead. The passion of the dancers came through and it was amazing to watch. It was real tango at its best. At about 12 a group of local, traditional musicians started to play and the atmosphere changed completely. It was electric. We were in a group of 4 and felt like we were witnessing the real BA tango community.

“Real tango, at real prices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Amazing tango (including an I depth lesson) for just 20 pesos a piece. This place beats any show hands down for a real tango experience. Real couples take to the floor for the moats amazing dances. And the food smells amazing!

“Disgusting and dangerous”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

The kitchen looks like the setting for a health and hygiene warning video. Fire arrangements woeful. Temperature like a sauna - fans available but not switched on. Tourists bussed in to gawp at the social dancers, dance floor abysmal.

“Excellent food and original tango spirit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Awesome place for good food at cheap prices and "folkish" tango spirit. The service was quite bad due the lack of waiters.
