Food was disappointing,...
Guillemette_G, Jul 2022
Food was disappointing, not bad but very simple taste … doesn’t serve the Show that was absolutely fabulous ! And the place is beautiful !
Great show, and not so great experience
chris_e, Jun 2022
we were supposed to be picked up 19:30 from our hotel, so we were outside 19:24, and waiting for the pickup, after waiting for a while, and trying to call many times the emergency helpline, we finally got through to be told 5 minutes (in other terms: 30 minutes), and 1 hour after (feeling pretty silly), we finally got picked up by an empty van, they also pick you up only from the centre, and not Palermo soho. the dinner was mediocre, no way worth 60$. In other words, do yourself favour and skip the dinner+pickup offer (take Cabify, it is going to be cheap and works well). The show started at 10PM. Now the good parts, we were seated in the front, it was small crowd, and the show was very good (interesting dancing, gauchos, bolero, singing, etc)! No english anywhere though, so you are in the dark guessing about the show.
Tango in Buenos Aires
Olli_L, May 2022
Amazing dancers, great musicians and all in all a great show. Intimate venue, good wines and friendly service. Transport from/to hotel was also a good help.
Wonderful Tango Show and Dinner
Beatrice_T, Mar 2022
This tango show was amazing, with outstanding musicians playing piano, cello, accordion and violin; a male and a female singer; and a trio of tango dancers. The food was delicious with attentive and friendly service. The biggest surprise of the evening: the intimate setting. We were seated in front of the stage, but doesn't matter where you sit, the view is great at Gala Tango! High caliber performance - thoroughly recommend!

An Intimate Tango Experience
Linda_G, Apr 2020
We attended this performance with the dinner included. Excellent show in the San Telmo district. An older venue than some of the shows but the performance was much more intimate as we were seated close to the stage. The variety in the acts was also very good. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Response from Host, Apr 2020
Dear Linda, You visited a restored historical conventillo located in the neighborhood of San Telmo, the birthplace of tango par excellence. We are happy to know that you have enjoyed one of the best and most traditional Tango shows that the city offers. We are glad you have selected Tangol for your visit in our country and sharing with us your experiences during your stay. Best Regards

A very noisy affair and some good Tango
N_N, Mar 2020
Reserved this last minute. Our hotel rated this as good. We booked just the show- no food or drinks. The tour operator indicated they do not pick up in the Palermo area and provided a prominent spot for pick up at 9:00 p.m. We took a taxi to that spot and waited and were picked up a bit after 9:00 p.m. So do not expect hey would be there exactly at 9:00 p.m. Remember you are enjoying a vacation. When we reached the place we were offered to go upstairs and enjoy a smaller venue that had a different show. Even though it might have been better I decided to stay with Ventana since I wanted to see what I had paid for. When we entered the venue was packed with people eating and drinking and was extremely busy. It was too loud to my liking. The show started around 10:00 p.m. From the start I found the music to be too loud and I had my ear blocked all through the performance. The Tango was good, including the 'Don't Cry for me Argentina' presentation. There were other pan flute presentations also. However, I had seen a Tango performance on a cruise ship the night before and that performance was much better and in a quieter environment. In conclusion the tour operator was well organised given the last minute reservation; the performance was good but the noise was unbearable for me and my spouse. If you like loud spaces, you may rate it higher.
Response from Host, Jun 2020
Dear traveler, We are very sorry to hear that the tour didn’t meet your expectations. The pick-up time is from 9PM to 9:30PM, depending on traffic conditions, as it is a group service. La Ventana is more characterized by a classic show compared to other houses and cruises that offer more tourist level shows. Also, is one of the oldest in the city, it was built in the XIX century. This Tango house preserves its history, architecture, and style, and the show involves all those characteristics. We are very sorry that La Ventana did not meet your expectations and we hope that despite this experience, you have enjoyed your trip to Buenos Aires. We really appreciate your comments as it helps us improve our services. Kind regards, Tangol Travel Agency.
Great evening out
Paul_R, Mar 2020
Picked up from our hotel and taken directly to the venue which is very atmospheric we sat in the gallery so had a great view the steak we had was superb and the bottle Malbec went down a treat the show itself was varied and very entertaining overall a great experience which I would strongly recommend
Do not recommend
Jenny_C, Mar 2020
Too crowded, too noisy and mediocre quality dinner. Unless you are with a large group, you will be seated at a table with a poor view of the stage. Do not recommend this activity.
Response from Host, Jun 2020
We're sorry that you did not enjoy La Ventana as they offers the best dinner of all the tango houses in Buenos Aires. It is important to consider that La Ventana is not a restaurant but a historic house with several halls where the dinner and the show take place. Despite your disappointment, we hope you enjoyed the show. Kind regards. Tangol
Amazing show
Yakov_Z, Mar 2020
Really great show. Nice experience to meet new people from different countries during the diner. Diner was also very good. Dancers, musicians and singers were absolutely amazing. Show exceeded our expectations in every way.
Tango experience
rosslyn_e, Feb 2020
A very excellent show. Many different acts to complement the tango show. Food was also of a high standard.
Terrific tango
james_k, Feb 2020
Show was great as was the food. Would highly recommend this experience. Good value for the money. Pick up and return was efficient
Great show, great atmosphere
Laurie_W, Feb 2020
Great show with a nice variety. Not just tango. The atmosphere/building was quite interesting as well. The wait staff was great and I was glad we chose the dinner option as the food was good and it gave us time to enjoy the place before hand. We were a family group of ages 36-95 and all enjoyed the experience - even those that had doubts that it would be too touristy. It is a place for tourists but still and all a great way to see some of the culture of Argentina. It was well worth the price and we would go again!
La Ventana
Robert_A, Feb 2020
The show was excellent but the driver never showed up and we had to take a taxi to the venue. This must happen often as they reimbursed us for the taxi. The driver said he came to the hotel but there was no way he did as we were there before the scheduled pickup time.
An excellent show
Patrice_d, Feb 2020
This is an excellent show with very talented musicians and dancers. We took the show with the dinner option, as everyone that night seems to have done. Considering the number in attendance, the meal was fast ordered and served. It was also good and copious, accompanied with very decent wine. The scenic arrangements for the show were very good, diverse and very orchestrated. Good viewing from everywhere in the room.
Nice tango show
ceejay62, Feb 2020
The meal was very good but there are a lot of tables crammed into the area so be prepared for a bit of claustrophobia . The show was excellent albeit with no translation to English at any time there was no opportunity to understand any of the story lines . The Gaucho part was the best. And which allowed me to rate this as 4 stars. During the performance there was a lot of people talking and seeming to ignore the show which made for very loud background noise.
brendan, Feb 2020
Lots of fun Tango, singing, folk music it was a wide ranging show and the food was good as well. Very good service. Very tourisistic but fun

Great tango experience
naglems, Feb 2020
This dinner show exceeded our expectations. Firstly for the dinner we had a good choice on the menu. The food was of very good quality and well prepared and presented. The show lasted about one and a half hours and included live tango music and dancing and a good variety of support show. The venue was charming and the transport there and back was very good. I would recommend this dinner show to anybody.
