My wife and I had a great time here. They put us at this romantic table on the side. We did not get the dinner, but that is ok. The dancing was really amazing. Great way to experience an important part of Argentinian culture.

Atmosphere, setting and venue were very good. return transfers between the hotel and venue were punctual and good. Show was also very good.

A wonderful venue and stage show, that is highly recommended for Tango enthusiasts and those that are wanting to know more about the art. The only downside is the extremely overpriced beverage list at the venue, that clearly targets tourists given that Buenos Aires serves very affordable drinks even at its most exclusive venues, but this is only a side note to an otherwise recommended night out.

Excellent show, very much enjoyed it. We did not do the dinner but had a great view of the stage, if possible ask to be seated up stairs. Minor complaint was the poor quality of the included white and red wines, for a country known for great wines, these were not it...

3 star rating: Worth doing February 2018

Its always good to see a tango show when in Buenos Aries.
We had hotel pick up and drop off..which is a must that late at night in this city.
The food is very basic, served on mass and slightly warm.The wine is ok.
The show was good to see and the old theatre where the show is held is quaint.
I thought it was rude that the waiters handed out account folders to people...yes some people still had money to pay but others like us didn't so ours was empty and they were expecting a tip to be placed in it.I believe we paid quite sufficient for the dinner and show.
I personally would recommend doing show only as the meal wasn't really worth it.
