Grey skies and torrential rain made our first two days in BA disappointing and we were ready to give BA (unfairly) a thumbs down. However, the Tango Show at Café de los Angelinos lifted our spirits and brought BA to life for us. The show...More

Our reservation was "VIP". The offered seating was not that good. In fact, it was behind a post. The tour guide who had set the reservation up spent a fair amount of time at bat for us, and we finally got a table which was...More

Our travel agent booked this venue on our behalf. The show starts earlier than most others in BA so we appreciated that our 2 kids (12 & 10) were able to experience it with us. Our courses were very rushed as our bus missed one...More

It was a really interesting cafe, where i had my first Submarino (chocolate submerged in hot milk) - basically hot chocolate, definitely recommended.

The tango show, the music and dancing, is good. I was expecting something a little more extravagant, but the stage is very small. The portions of the food served was a little too much for me; I couldn't get halfway through the huge steak! Not...More
