“Lovely Cafe”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Very atmospheric. Nice for coffee and pastry - meals not so great. There's also tango shows, but we didn't see them so can't comment.

“FANTASTICO!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

For a short coffee break, a quick breakfast or afternoon ice coffee stop - it is worth visiting, make a reservation for the night show at 21.00 hours, the show on the first floor is smaller and intimate, the one on -2 is more interactive, has more dancers.

“Great authentic atmosphere just don't try the hot chocolate with churros.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Great authentic atmosphere - but don't try the hot chocolate with churros!!! The hot chocolate tasted like sour sweet milk and the churros were uneatable, dry and as if they have been made the day before they were served.
We did however visit the place some nights before having a snack and that was fine.

“Wonderful feel, decent food and service - a must visit”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Arrived here mid afternoon for a light lunch. The Ensalada Completa was tasty, and they added tuna to my wife's without fuss. Diet Coke was excellent. And a nice espresso finished it all off nicely. Great atmosphere, busy but ok service. Toilets clean. And free WiFi. Every visitor to BA should visit.
