Do not go to this show. The service is horrible, they do not bring you the package you bought and the pick up did not work! The show of 60 minutes is totally overpriced!A travelguide would call it a tourist trap... Spend the money for a different show!

Watching a tango show is a must to experience the Argentinian culture. Tango Porteno is one great venue to see a good tango show which you would remember for a long time. Great dancers and performance. The ticket (without dinner) includes a glass of wine and 2 empanadas.

As a person who have a solo image of woman and man holding hands together when it comes to tango, I thought this offers a good chance to appreciate the music and dance. It lasts about an hour ( if you take a dinner + tango, it takes 2hours more) with combination of different dance and orchestra music stages -... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the dinner show here. The dancing was an amazing blend of tango and ballet. The food was also very good but I was not impressed with the service! The wait staff were not very polite and a bit rough.

Extremely great performance by all artists - The dance performances were all very sensuous and yet gracious. The vocals sung by the artists during the show were as well very melodious. All in all - worth recommending for those who have never been to Latin America - worth the time and money - every bit of it

The soup was acceptable, the steak awful, and the chocolate mousse poor. The instruments are each magnified by speakers which should not be necessary in a theater of this size. It comes across as noise "offensive to the ear" as a scholarly friend said. Similarly the singing --which should also need no amplification in this theater-- is loud. One really... More

Attended a conference gala dinner here which was full of theatre and tango dancing. The venue comfortably seated 650 guests for the event, which was run like a well oiled machine. The meal was very tasty, with a rich steak main with potato gratin. All the courses were quite tasty, with the exception of the steak which, while well flavoured... More

After going to a smaller tango hall the previous evening we were disappointed . We were seated with poor viewing and this definitely ruined the show for us. I understand that the people that dine are given the best viewing but surely it wouldn't hurt for them to make the other guests welcome as well. The stage is huge so... More

A lover of dance or anyone looking for a Broadway style tango show would enjoy this show. It is a professional show and not the classic restaurant setting tango you see in movies but we wanted a show so this suited our desire. Classy setting with table seating. All types of tango so it was nice to see the traditional... More

This was a last minute decision, after our other tango plans were cancelled. It was a great decision as we thoroughly enjoyed the show. I chose it in 5 minutes, based on location and Trip Advisor recommendations. We did not have dinner, just the show for $28usd. There is a live orchestra, wonderful dancers with a variety of vignettes that... More
