authentic French food & desserts!

I love Macaron Tango's salads, calzone and macarons (in many, many flavors to feast on)! The owner is French and is regularly in the cafe to oversee things.

Ok so french are not known for pizza but stereotypes fail sometimes. I actually like their version more than most in cebu.You can taste the cheese and each pie is individually made. I really dont care for the signature macaroon but that's just me. Pannini's here are not bad either

I go almost every lunch time at Macaron Tango and I love it. The food is simple but very tasty. The macarons are the best in the city and the other desserts such as the lemon pie are delicious. On top of that the chef is french and the staff is very friendly. I will go there again and again... More

Colleagues again recommended this place for the novel food and drinks--it was overrated. The macarrons were good enough--they did have flavor as opposed to most which only have color and little smell. Beverages were of the generic brand, but of course, price was hiked. breads were neither soft but quite chewy to tough despite light heating. In addition, if you... More

The owner makes the best macaroons in Cebu, hand-crafted with love and skill and always made fresh, never frozen. The salads, main dishes, are all delicious. A great place to eat or have dessert!

The restaurant is a bit hidden and no easy to find, inside a small mall beside the hospital. Almost impossible to find... Inside is cozy but very hot, they need more aircon because during summertime the sun enter in the place. The food is very nice, cooked directly their french chef, prices are not so high and service is very... More

This place normally known for the macarons, but I'm telling you you've got to try their apple tart. The tart is fully loaded with apples and have the right amount of sweetness and tartness. I've also tried their chocolate cake and apple cake which is not a common item at the cafe. I find it a little pricey especially since... More

I've been passing by this quaint shop numerous times but never bothered going in since I'm not really a huge fan of french macarons and assumed they just served dessert and coffee like any other cafe... Not until mum urged me to bring her there. We've been there twice together and had 2 contrasting experiences. Our first visit was delightful.... More

wow, a decently priced genuine little frenchy spot in a place you would not expect it..that's my kind of place. I played it simple with the croque monsieur and an espresso and both were faithful. The owner, remi is a nice guy as well. If you are staying near the capitol, I would recommend it for a bit.
