We wanted to enjoy a tango show and dinner without paying super-high prices. This place was great. The show was modest, perhaps, as there were only 4 dancers, 4 musicians and two singers, but it was all very enjoyable (even though we only understood a few words of it). Our waiter spoke very good English and was very helpful with... More

This show suited us perfectly .It is small enough to be authentic but professional and entertaining throughout. There were three performing couples ,all wonderful as they danced their way through the history of Tango.There were a coupleof sultry singers and musians helping tocreate the mood. Dinner is included.The steak huge and good. The wine selection is good and reasonable priced.

After looking into some of the better advertised Tango shows and finding them to be exorbitantly expensive, we just happened on to this venue a few blocks from where we were staying. What luck! We decided to do just the drinks and show (without dinner) for all of about 300 pesos per person. The venue is very intimate and very... More

We had a wonderful experience here last night and loved each performance. Many times we think that spending more on a show/activity/hotel/meal = more for our money, when in reality, you can have just as good of an experience while spending MUCH less. I am so thankful we chose to give Taconeando a shot and feel that we made a... More

I was pleased with the menu and the show. Be prepared that no beverages are included in the price so anything you request would be paid for seperately. It was one of the more affordable Tango shows and locals come here as well!

The food is appalling - but the good news is that you can have a few drinks and see the show without eating. When we visited there were quite a few Argentinians, and NONE of them had dinner as far as we could see. I paid by credit card and was told no less then 4 times that service was... More

This is not a high-end glitzy show in an ornately decorated theatre. It is much more down to earth but still very enjoyable. The big advantage is its intimacy. The maximum capacity is probably not much more than sixty yet we were able to book a table the night before which was right beside the stage. Many of the tango... More

Pros - ability to book and pay easily on line without going through hotels or agencies. Good dancing by all pairs (though we're no tango experts), efficient service by hosts and servers - drink delivery, check settling, etc. Small venue - good visibility from most tables. Tables not ridiculously close. Conveniently nearby for us (we were staying in San Telmo).... More

We got here following a recommendation, indeed it was a good show and not as touristic as these things might get. We booked it ourselves on their website, they accept PayPal transfer and were in all very nice. We took only the show, a good option if you want to save the expensive dinner.

We did alot of research before we decided on this one and we found that many peoples reviews complained of the price of the tango/dinners shows ($150+ at some places) and the poor quality of the food/service and tourist trap rip off, e.g. open bar but never being able to find a waitress to get a drink, poor quality wine,...

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
