A lovely warm welcome from the ladies at the desk who take your name and allocate you a waiter to escort to your table. What a great start! Then you have to queue up to have your photos taken with the dancers striking a tango pose - most embarrassing with all the other diners looking on! Then you get to... More

Excellent option to experience a tango night. The venue is beautifully decorated , located inthe neighbourhood where Carlos Gardel lived. As all touristic places we can not expect top quality food , but that night my food option was very good , and the dessert superb - a sampler of argentinian pastries. The show is a caleidoscopic of tango dancing... More

The atmosphere: packed, but not crowded if you are part of a tour. There are private seats in booths and balconies for others. Not a fancy theater. There are black and white silent movies of tango related themes. Food: my first course of empanada was very good, but the entrée of pork was sooo dry, my husband's steak was very... More

Beautiful theatre. Food was excellent! We did the VIP dinner. The dance was very interesting and enjoyable. This was all paled by a 1 hour movie while serving the food that was the history of tango. Unfortunately, the movie was inaudible!! When I asked to turn up the volume, I was told that's the way it is. What a waste... More

The Tango Show is famous. A dinner is included. The dinner is of average quality, however, the show and orchestra are excellent. Highly recommended

I booked the dinner and show through Shore Excursions group, the evening did not start too well with the bus that took us to the venue arriving 25 minutes late, however, once we were there everything showed a dramatic improvement, The dinner consisted of a choice of appetizer followed by a choice of main course and then dessert, the meal...

Really looking forward to this visit two days after we arrived in Argentina. First the food! Not the beef we expected to find in Argentina - tough, fatty and we could not eat it, so chewy we left the whole meal! Although other reports are good there were many people in our group or close who felt the same Second... More

This show was booked by our tour agency. It was our first night in Buenos Aires, and it was not disappointing at all. The show was fun, the Tango was superb, the orchestra above the stage was a great plus, the singing was good, and the wine was flowing. Literally flowing!! The food was adequate, but excellent food is never... More
