We went for the show only after reading other reviews saying the food was so-so, and we really enjoyed ourselves. The price we got through Viator was 30 cheaper than booking directly through the venue, and for the price, it was an outstanding value. The ticket included transportation to/from, beverages, and one tasty empanada per person halfway through the show. We had a great seat in the balcony, though I don't think there are any bad seats in the house.
The show consists of numerous dance and vocal numbers and fun costumes. I saw criticisms in other reviews that there are too many singing solos, but those are there to give the dancers time for costume and hairstyle changes and are worth the time they take.
I vacillated between 3 and 4 stars for the rating and settled on three, only because the show feels a little old-school and needs a little work to up the professionalism e.g., there are many times when the dancers aren't in synch when they easily could be and there is room to add a little variety and update the show a little - the last 1/3 of the show was starting to feel a little repetitive - same dances in different costumes, though still fun to watch and there is a lot of variation in the quality of the individual dancers. My gut says there are probably better tango shows out there, but they probably cost more. If, like us, you don't know much about tango and just want a fun evening for a reasonable price, this is an OUTSTANDING option. I give it five stars for value.
Arrepentida de haber escogido la opción de que nos pasarán buscando al hotel. Dimos vueltas por casi una hora por toda la ciudad. El show en sí estuvo increíble con bailarines profesionales y la orquesta que los acompañaba estuvo genial también. En cuanto a la cena, de calidad pero apresurada.
Great evening out at the show we had the meal included and it was well worthwhile. Good food, and plenty of wine! The show was great fun and very professional. We had a really enjoyable evening, the staff were excellent and overall it was good value for money. We had good company too at the meal table. Thoroughly recommended.
We have been to tango shows before so knew what to expect but this was an absolute treat from start to finish. The meal was really excellent based around a superb steak and all drinks were delivered promptly in copious amounts. The staff were bright, helpful and efficient so all went well.
The dancing was also of a very high standard and the show lasted about 1 1/2 hours so we didn't leave until 11.30. I can only compliment the Cafe de los Angelitos an a fantastic evening.
Our only issues were around Greyline who appear to be the agents between Viator and the Cafe. They did not,despite emails from us ever confirm as detailed in the documents. We had to have our hotel spend a long time on the phone to get a pick up confirmation and time. Beware Greyline, they have reputation for this.
Dinner and Show at the same place was an excellent.venue. We had a good time and enjoyed our very good choice of Steak for Dinner The service was efficient and prompt by attentive servers. The Show perfomance was very good done by truly professional performer.
Wold recommend this highly .
Truly a wonderful experience, from the moment we were picked up promptly at our hotel. The Cafe de Los Angelitos is very deceptive from the outside, on the inside it is pretty spectacular. Food at some of this type of show can be at the least poor to average, the food we both had was wonderful as was the selection, beef for me and pasta for my wife. Wine flowed throughout the meal. But the show is the true highlight, so many professional artists, tango performed in various ways and costumes are a delight. Kudos all around.
