Since 1867 this big old house has been established in the historic center of the City. In 1920 it was founded as a bar and then, in 1992 restored; it is now considered by the Museum of the City of Buenos Aires as a “Living Evidence of the Civic Memory” and as a “Place of Tourist Interest” by the National Tourist Secretary.

Picked this Tango show due to the reviews on TA: smaller venue, everyone gets a good seat. We booked this on line on their website, very easy and received 10%off. They do provide transportation to and from the show in the ticket price, but our B&B, La Perla was just two easy blocks away so we walked which was fine,... More

We thought the food was excellent, staff friendly and show pretty good. Can't really fault anything. However only gave 4 stars because for us (in our early 30s) we felt a little out of place and don't think we really appreciated the dancing fully. I would guess the majority of the crowd were double our age and I am certain... More

We were referred to the place by the concierge at the Intercontinental and where attracted by the smaller size of the venue. We booked the same day and had very good views of the stage. Given the size, all seats must have good views of the raised stage. The show and music were top level. If you do get a... More

Booked through TangoTix. They were very prompt and professional. Also used them for transits, very easy and nice bus. Venue was small and traditional. Staff friendly and very helpful. Did not feel as if we were being rushed and food was really good. We had front row seats and were very near to the dancing. Great night out and just... More

Nice atmosphere but lunch was just mediocre. I had the Milanesa which was a bit dry although the accompanying salad was simple but excellent. My hosts picked the wine which was Trumpeter Malbec - pretty poor compared to others. Wish I could give it more of a score but just average I am afraid.

We asked the concierge at the Intercontinental for his recommendations, and he booked us a table for two. We ended up with what we thought was the best table in the house! Food was great - a really good a la carte three course menu, with wine and beer included. The show was amazing, and exceeded our expectations in every... More

If you are looking for a decently priced tango or tango-dinner show, this could be your option. The restaurant is medium size (compared to other major shows) and offers a typical tango-show, that features the development of tango as a dance and music from its early days (end of the 19th century) to the current art form. I opted to... More

Fist, we wanted to go for a Tango Show and everyone told us that food at this places is not good, so our expectative was low. But surprisingly food, served before the show, was amazingly good, with a variety of options to choose from, waiters we very nice, the place was full of people but our plated arrived hot enough,...

We went last night to watch Carlos Gardel show only (no food) and even though it was nice, it was EXTREMELY expensive for what you get. Not worth the money (almost $200 for 2 people).Tonight, on the other hand, we went to see the tango show in El Querandi and it was AMAZZZZZZING!!! and we paid $96 for two (again... More

The food and the staff are amazing. Really friendly make sure to ask for some of the extra spicy sauces on the side if you like spicy. And don't forget the chimichurri with your steak.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
