After researching several shows all over Buenos Aires for an evening of Tango, we settled for the one at Piazzolla in the Galleria Guemes. and it DID NOT Disappoint !!
We took the Dinner option as well, and since we were staying near the Plaza de Mayo, it was walking distance (5 mins) to the venue.
Dinner means you need to be there by 8 PM as they start serving your well-paced, delicious, 3 course dinner over the next 2 hours. The unlimited wine option is always a bonus.
Tango lessons are optional, as you take breaks between your meal and quite fun.
At 10 PM the show really begins, and I must say, it lived up to expectations for the next 1 hour and 15 minutes. Great performances, lively and well choreographed.
The fascinating interior of the historic Astor Piazzolla Theatre forms the perfect backdrop and ambience for a lovely evening.
Highly recommend the dinner and Show if you have the time & of course shelling out a few extra dollars compared to other show options does guarantee the quality you were hoping for.
Quick note: Seating is random and pre-arranged, but you get a good view from pretty much anywhere, so nothing to stress about.

What a great dinner and show. Down a couple flights in this old, beautiful theater with four floors of box’s and the main floor lined with tables. Th VIP boxes are really special. The musicians are so talented that they are the show b themselves. The dancers are amazing entwining their legs, arms and bodies in dance of the tango. Great night of fun.

Arranged this for our first night in Buenos Aires and it turned out to be a truly wonderful cultural experience. We paid a little extra to get a private table along the side and the view was just perfect to take in the excellent mix of dancing, singing and music provided by such a talented cast. The food was delicious - empanada/steak/tiramisu - and the optional tango lesson in the foyer was nowhere near as self-conscious as you might think!
Wonderful experience not to be missed.

Spent a delightful hour here watching variety of tango with my family. The dancing was excellent and gave the viewer a sense of the different tango styles and variations. Appreciate that they weaved a narrative story to keep it interesting especially since we had our 4 year old with us.

Not worth the money. Waited 45 minutes for pick up then had to stand outside in the cold for 30 minutes because they weren’t ready to let us in. Food was decent not worth the price. Show was like watching your kids performance. Do not waste your money. Go to a real tango dance hall where you can watch and dance without paying!

This was a great way to spend an evening in Buenos Aires! The 3 course meal is good value for the money. There is a pre-show class which was fun, with or without a partner. But the highlight is the tango show itself! The performances are amazing, complete with a live band and several costume changes. Tango at its best! The tour company will pick you up and drop you after the show itself as well. With the pre-show class, dinner and the show, it’s 4 hours in total. Well worth it.

The show was excellent and had a variety of acts to complement the tango dancers, who were great. The dinner was good but nothing spectacular. The only drawback was the very tight seating and dining arrangement but the waiters were able to provide very good service.

The Piazzolla Tango Show was brilliant. The song and dance was Broadway caliber, immersing us in the tango culture for a spell-binding 90 minutes. The theatre is a good example of turn of the 20th century opera/tango house with opulent red velvet curtains and gold leaf designs on white stucco walls. We did not partake of the pre-show dinner, but it did look good. We did have empanadas (some the best I had in Buenas Aires) and the house red wine (surprisingly delicious). Staff was helpful, courteous and English-speaking. My only criticism is that we did not have the option of leaving our cruise ship later in the evening, so we had quite a long wait while others ate their dinners. But the show was well worth the wait, and our transport back was flawless.

My husband is from Argentina and I am Mexican, so we go to visit his Family in Buenos Aires almost every 3 years. I love going to Tango Shows and I believe for first timers Señor Tango is a good option, but if you want something more real, Astor Piazzolla is awesome! Its was a great experience we got some lessons (even though my husband already knows, it was nice to get to see the girl’s part better) so we danced, we had dinner and then the show, WOW! The singers make you get the chills, the dancers are extraordinary and the service and food was very good ( and A LOT!). Would definitely recommend this tango show to anyone visiting Buenos Aires!

( I bought my tickets through here like a day before and everything went very smoothly)

Good tango show in Buenos Aires. We were a group of 18, and had the dinner and show option, we were picked at our hotel, which is a nice option. I had the steak, the meat was very good and cooked medium well as requested. The dining seating arrangements are kind of tight. Show was very good, but long, ended at 1130 pm. The dancers were superb. We enjoyed it.
