“An authentic Tango show”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We considered going to the 'Broadway' production show across from our hotel, but the concierge guided us to El Querandí because it is considered more authentic. We were advised against going to the show on our own as it is not in a safe area so we opted for dinner and the show with a free pick up and return to our hotel for (around) $90 each in cash. We were assured that the steak option was a fine Argentinean meal and there were many other choices. Well, the meal was just adequate. The show, however, was well done. It covered the history of the tango through various eras. The dancers and the music were good. I didn’t think it was great value, but when you consider that it is dinner, a show and transportation, it’s not so bad. It wasn’t the best entertainment, but it was a pleasant way to spend the evening. The other three people I was with seemed to enjoy it all more than I did.

“A Great Tango show”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

It is worth going there! A very nice show that tells the history of tango, not a broadway like, such as Senor Tango, which for me makes it much better

“A show that even the locals appreciate”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Argentinians appreciate a good tango show and we experienced it with them, without a room full of Americans, like ourselves. Our hotel concierge told us about it and he was right. He also said the food is actually good and he was right about that, too. The show was very wonderful and authentic, complete with Frank Sinatra lookalikes who sang tango songs, and talented dancers (how they managed to move around so fast and not fall off the stage is an amazing feat by itself). Great to get picked up by the club's van----but where did that guy learn to drive? Happy to arrive safely there and back to the hotel without hitting a pedestrian who didn't move fast enough,. You might want to look into your own transport if you have a weak heart!

“Great Show!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We didn't choose the dinner option but, enjoyed a great bottle of Malbec as we watched the show. El Querandi offers pickup and drop off at your hotel which is extremely convenient. I wanted to see a traditional Tango show and that is what you get at El Querandi! It was simply beautiful and worth every penny. A must see in BA!

“So romantic, we got engaged that night!”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We had a wonderful time the evening we saw this show. We had spent a lot of our trip traveling through South America hiking and hitting the streets. The night arrived to get all dolled up and visit El Querandi and it was incredible! The dancers are so very talented and dance beautifully, dancing the most romantic dance of our times, Tango! Couldn't keep my eyes off the stage, other than to steal a smile from my sweetie. We enjoyed the dinner and drinks, the service was kind and lovely. The dancers had perfect showmanship and gorgeous costumes. The musicians were great, as were the vocalists. They have a photographer that takes photos of each table and you take home a nice 7x9" later for free inside of a El Querandi folder, of course don't forget to tip him! Absolutely recommend this show. We were swept away with this show and the romance that comes with it... later that evening in the Recoletta we became engaged to be married!
