Chose the 'staff pizza' on our last visit. Was impressed with it and thanked the pizza chef 'Constance'. Wife had te rump steak which she rated highly albeit slightly over-done. Prices have crept up a bit since August, but still great value esp for early diners before 6.45pm.

As this place is very close to our home we have visited it quite often. They offer very tasty and reasonably priced meals, of both meat and fish. We usually have the fresh fish or calamari. Tangos also offer an early bird menu, which is very good too. The vibe is good and as it isn't a huge venue it... More

I have been a regular at Tangos for years, however, I will not be going back. On my last three consecutive visits I have been horribly disappointed. On all three occasions I have ordered a steak and each time the steak has been cooked to the wrong temperature. Not only that, but the sauces ordered have been revolting. I decided... More

We keep going back to Tangos. Food consistently good and outstanding value. Place is often full which tells you what others think. Ross is a top class manager.

Went here last night. The place was packed, glad we booked a table. Service was great and the food was excellent as usual. Great value for money, we frequent this grill weekly. My favourite is 300g Rump, El Diablo style with chips and add calamari. The staff are always friendly.

After discovering Tango's Grill early this year my wife and i have been back a few times. The BYO deal, the calamari, ribs and most dishes offer excellent value. But I chose Kingclip last visit and while meal was suffice I was taken aback by R119 cost (forgot to check price before ordering). I realise seafood is going up everywhere,... More

Tried Tango's after reading +ve comments on TA. The 'early bird' menu is available till about 6.30PM and most mains are R69. Exc value despite being slightly smaller portions than those in main menu. I followed our waiter's suggestion and chose ribs from main menu. The 600g portion is R99 but tried the 'special' of 1kg for R125. It was... More

As a neighbourhood restaurants go, it takes a lot to beat Tangos. It has a varied menu, always with good fish options, my favourite food. We have dined there for 5 years on regular visits to Cape Town, and it continues to produce quality food. We enjoy their early evening specials, which have to be ordered by 7 and completed... More
