The show was entertaining and showcased several styles of tango. Food was terrible as in I couldn't cut my steak. I'd definitely recommend just buying the drink package.

We had an excellent steak dinner followed by the tango show. The eight-piece orchestra was superb. The tango couples put on a good show. The individual male and female singers were mediocre. Before the show started at 10:30, there was a video about the history of tango. It could have been much more interesting.

There are many of these type of Tango showcase shows in BA but this was recommended to us by a guide. Let's start with price, it is expensive at $140US per person but this does include pick up and return from your hotel, dinner, drinks and a 90 minute stage show, a live orchestra and a large cast of fantastic,...

The tango show at Carlos Gardel is a must see if one is interested in the dance and music history of Argentina! The foot-work and interplay of bodies of these dancers is intricate and so sensual. The history of tango is displayed right before your eyes with live music and the bandoneon's sweet song. A must see!

We splurged a got the VIP tickets without the meal. We were picked up by a private car at our hotel at 9:30. Were whisked to a perfect table at the middle front of the balcony and given Champagne, wine, coffee and waters. The waiters and ushers were super nice. The atmosphere was charged. Large tour groups were downstairs and... More

As other reviewers point out , you go here for the dancing and not the food. The food was OK , but not great , ditto the wine which was average. By luck our tour company had booked us the VIP package. A car is sent to pick you up from your hotel . VIP customers get a superb balcony... More

This show was a part of our tour, and it was spectacular. The food and service was good, and the dancers were outstanding. It is a bit pricey, but I think it is worth it and not to be missed.

Sat in the "stalls," aka the orchestra section, aka the ground floor. I opted for the cheapest package, the show and drinks for $96 a person. The seats were great (you have a great view no matter where you sit in this venue) but the drinks were pretty cheap. As much as I enjoyed the show - and I absolutely... More
