Terrific Saturday brunch

Five of us enjoyed a delicious buffet brunch on Saturday. The food was delicious and the friendliness and attention of the staff kept our empty plates cleared away and our coffees and waters refilled. We will definitely return soon.

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

The food, the service, the flavour....all wonderful! We ordered four things between two of us and we left perfectly stuffed. The night we were there was bring your own wine night so check that out.

Tango Bistro continues to offer tasty gluten free tapas and pretty cocktails as well as wine and desserts. I think I liked some of the items on their old menu better, but the new menu still includes the baked Brie, and the scallops, and has added a GF gnocchi with pork bits that is to die for. The atmosphere is... More

A group of business collegues decided to try this place during a Friday afternoon with no reservation. The place was packed but the seating hostess gracefully offered us the bar counter. Somewhat reluctantly but seduced by my friend's reviews on this place, we accepted. It was certainly worth it. We selected half a dozen appetizers and a few entries. Each... More

A place to go if you like to share your food, have a comfortable slow pace meal that gives you time to chat and relax. I do find it costly thought, there were 3 of us, with 1 drink each and 5 items - came to 80.00 then add tip/GST and you are at or over 100.00 - remember this... More

We just shared an absolutely enjoyable and memorable meal tonight that we need to rave about. First, the ambience in Tango is warm, open, not noisy, laid back and never rushed, and with a booth, comfortable and intimate. Second, our waiter, Jeff knew his menu items, suggested size portions and kept on top of things, never rushing us nor taking... More
