Walked into this place not knowing what to expect and loved it. Ordered 7 small plates, and they were all delicious. The beet fries were a complete hit, and I am still trying to recreate the peppercorn aoili at home. Nice atmosphere with great service. The snores dessert is a really cute idea too. Would definitely recommend.

This place really should be rated higher than it is. The service and food are always very good,I have been coming here for years now. They also have a really good breakfast/Brunch buffet that is worth going to. Highly recommend!!

A friend and I had lunch at this fairly new venue. Busy lunch time crowd. Hostess was efficient and very friendly. Menu range is limited but the lunch menue offers very good value on a 3 item lunch for $16.00. Parking is adequate with additional parking behind Smugglers Inn. Nice ambience.

Unique restaurant because of the fact that they only give "to share plates" and appetizer style meals. Very fun to experience and pretty fairly priced. I recommend the wild boar meatballs

We have visited three times in our travels, perfect each time, and this is a must try for anyone who loves a small plate/ sharing/creative/ presentation-focused experience. Hands down, one of the very best restaurants we have encountered. This is a wonderful adventure! Not unkind to the pocketbook. Bravo!

I was there for the first time a few weeks ago, and did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. It is like a tapas bar, where there are a good number of wonderful dishes (appetizers) to choose from. Choose a few dishes you may like, and they will come in intervals, so you can enjoy each one,...

7 family members gathered for dinner. I had a reservation and the table was ready for us. Unfortunately the lighting was very good at other tables but ours had no overhead lighting and left us in darker conditions than were comfortable. I have never eaten 'tapis'. While I understand the idea is a series of 'snacks' that the group shares... More

I had personally never heard of Tango Bistro before my first visit this past spring, but it has quickly become my favourite restaurant. I've been there about a half a dozen times since and I have yet to have a less-than-superb experience. In addition to excellent food, I have nothing but great things to say about the serving staff, in... More

Tango is one restaurant we discovered by accident a couple of years ago, when all of the other restaurants in the building had long waits -- I'm glad we did. We now choose Tango most nights if we are going out for dinner. Some menu items change occasionally but a couple that have continued to be our favorite are the... More
