First time for us to see Tango in BA and we thought it absolutely fantastic. The location had atmosphere and the music / dance was energised.

We bought the meal package and pick up through our hotel. It was easy and worked smoothly. Expectations for the meal were low but much better than we had thought. With the scale you can’t expect fine dining but steak was pretty good, wine flowed and service was friendly too.

But it was the show that really mattered and it delivered.

We booked the dinner and tango show via Trailfinders before leaving the UK because we felt we really should see some tango whilst in BA. Having attended similar 'touristy' evenings elsewhere in the world, our expectations of the meal and the show were not particularly high, but we were really surprised - and very pleasantly so.
Although the starter was unexciting, both the steak main course and the dessert were both outstanding, and the inclusive wine, which flowed quite freely, was eminently drinkable.
The show itself was really good. I don't know a lot about the finer points of tango, but the whole thing was colourful, varied and fast-moving - the hour or so passed very quickly and left me wanting more. In summary, a really good evening out.

The show itself was pretty decent, costumes were certainly nice and there weren't any corny nationalistic moments as is the case with some of the other shows. Food was so-so, there was certainly plenty of it, but the real problem was with the SERVICE. Our waiter had maybe 5-8 tables to serve but he couldn't handle it and I guess he decided we were the lowest possible priority because the other tables were getting drinks served and we were being ignored. And after all of this he had the cheek to come up to us during the show, speaking to us in English for probably the first time all night and telling us that tips for waiters weren't included in the show price. Well, I hope the other tables he chose to prioritise over us tipped him well because we didn't tip him at all, instead we saved our tip for the lovely driver who picked us up from our hotel and took us back afterwards.

All in all we ended up at Los Angelitos due to a booking error with our booking agent, we had meant to go to another show, and in the end we felt our original decision in not wanting to go to Los Angelitos was validated. The reasonably good show and excellent driver can't make up for the bad experience we had with our waiter. Go elsewhere, there are plenty of options in Buenos Aires to choose from.

Hope this review has been helpful. If you have any other questions on the show please feel free to message me.

We stopped in to have a coffee and factura and it was decent. I cannot speak much about the other item on the menu but coffee was fine. I will say that have a gorgeous bathroom, which is hard to come by in Buenos Aires.

Just a fabulous Show, excellent food (although too much for me!), fantastic service, wine was flowing. All in all and fabulous experience which I still keep thinking about. The pick-up from hotel was on time and lovely driver (can't remember his name). Excellent value for money and would certainly recommend and would go again if ever we find ourselves in Buenos Aires. Wonderful memory of a lovely City.
