We were taken to this restaurant and tango show by our tour company after the original venue we were booked at mysteriously closed. We were so disappointed having looked forward to a true Argentinian tango show for so long. This is a tourist experience and...More

As reported by other reviewers, this is not a cafe where you would expect a gourmet meal. However, the food is perfectly delicious and considering the scale and speed of the catering, surprisingly good. The tango show is, of course, the reason to go and...More

I went to this establishment as part of a tour with the Gate 1 company. This was one of our evening "optional" excursions. For those of you who have not done these type of tours, that essentially means you pay extra for a particular experience....More

They have superb tango shows at night and the price includes the show, pick up and drop off at the hotel and set dinner. The dinner itself was not good but the tango show was superb which made our visit to this restaurant memorable.

This cafe is a stunning example of historic architecture. You could almost imagine yourself traveling back in time as you sit and marvel at the stained glass, light fixtures, etc. The food experience was less spectacular. Service was nice.
