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.

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

We had dinner at Tangos to celebrate my mom's 75th birthday. The food was tasty and portions were generous. the birthday girl recieved a "free" dessert, which was good. It is a family restaurant and children are welcome. If you order before 7pm, there is a special menu and lower price. It isreally worth going earlier, not just for the... More

Only the best for the guests, means top meet and fish every day. For the meet lovers the 500g sirloin steak is the best joyce, with the "lekker" Peri-Peri and Mustard Sauces. Waiters always very engaged and helpful to let you enjoy your on wine you brought with, at no extra service charge. Tango's: Always a good choice for a... More
