Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful Spanish-only Uruguayian meld of stories, songs, salsa, flamenco and African drumming (condombe). Very professional and well-produced cast of 13 or so, not including musicians.

Great show with amazing dancers and an introduction to Uruguayan culture. Highly recommend it. The environment is amazing and at the end we all got up and started dancing :)

It was a great show. A combination of Tango, Candombe, Folklore, Dance and Music.

The dinner wasn't good enough. Very comfortable theater. Centrally located in Montevideo.

The show was enjoyed by my teenager. I thought it was quite good but had to twist either my neck or whole body to see the performers as I was seated at a dinner table with my back to the action. It was good to hear and see candombe, tango and folk in the same show with a live band. I don’t regret going to the show. Also the wine was very nice. There was an open bar (though the waiters were sometimes slow to refill). The dinner was ridiculous. Highly overpriced. The steak was very hard to cut and even harder to chew. Most people who had steak couldn’t finish it. The chicken was served with potato noisettes that looked like they came from a freezer packet. I’d recommend eating elsewhere.

The show was amazing. Great performers. The dinner was lackluster. It was frozen food re-heated. I would go for the show, stay away from the dinner portion.

Must see show when in Montevideo. Very artistic and a great introduction of Uruguay’s rich history in music. We just went with the show, rather than show and dinner and loved it.

We went with high expectations but left disappointed. The show itself was okay, with the singers and musicians excellent and dancers average. The table service and initial welcome was great too. However, don't bother with the food which is very overpriced. My wife, who is vegetarian, was given a mountain of white rice with half a red pepper and onion as her main dish, with no herbs, no sauce, no dressing of any description. In short, a completely tasteless monstrosity. At the end I asked for a small discount on the price of her 'meal' but we were refused. I really hope someone from the event reads this and takes note, so as not to disappoint future guests. My message to them would be not to be complacent and to work on improving the food on offer. Eventually you will get found out, which would be a shame since the performance itself has potential.

We went for the 'show only' option. The show was nice and enjoyable, mixing different music styles and with a combination of dancing and singing. The live orchestra and singers are great. However the overall show is missing some energy and dynamism to create an even greater impact.
It's a bit pricy for what it is.

This is a dinner theater with Tango Shows, Candombe and Local Folk dances. Interspersed are two good singers accompanied by a live orchestra. The theater is located to the north of the old town, and you can purchase a tour ticket from your hotel reception. The tickets comes with an open bar servicing wine and soft drinks. Patrons sit on dining tables around a stage. The food is served by wait staff who do an amazing job. Dinner is usually a three course meal. The are many Tango shows and some in tandem. A local type of dance, the Candombe, is performed. It is like a mini carnival and has a lot of African influence to it. Seeing the two shows, one can discern the African influence on Tango. Nice way to spend an evening and getting introduced to Tango, which is a pretty sensual and exciting dance.
