This traditional theater of the tango show is the perfect size to be intimate, not too big, but not small. We didn’t add drinks and dinner, but ordered a glass of wine at the show separately. The performance was very professional, highlighted each performer, and used the stage well. It’s a must-do when visiting Buenos Aires.

It was the best experience! I went for my birthday. The dancers did a surprise special skit just for me and I was able to catch it on video. They also surprised me with a small cake after the show. The food and service was great! Definitely recommend this!

Food was good, we had a table in front of the scene and the experience was just amazing! Dancers were very passionate and the whole show was just breath-taking! Highly recommended

Dinner was excellent and the show was amazing. Had so much fun!

The show was one of the best live performances I’ve ever seen.
