We've Been Eating Here For 4 Years

Had a filet there that was tasteless. it was as if it had been thawed in water leaving the filet bloodless and of coarse, flavorless. The french fries were so thin and crunchy when the waiter set the plate down they slid from side to side on the plate. And that was all I got for 145$.... will not return

We have been patrons for many years and the quality of the food and service has been solidly consistent, with twice the value of the big city steak houses.

My husband's favorite steak place! I also love the caprese salad, the asparagus with balsamic and parmesan, and the penne arrabiata.

While visiting Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico, you must dine at The Tango. Their steaks are very tender and flavorful. They offer a 24 ounce filet mignon steak for two for about 240 pesos (give or take 16 US dollars), that is tender and full of flavor. Their bolognese lasagne is excellent, and they have many sea food dishes. This restaurant is... More

This is a restaurant that is one of the most popular ones in Ajijic, MX. The food is great, the service is good and the atmosphere is very comfortable for single diner, couple, parties and families with children. One draw back for me is the fact that they do not have a patio. Also, the name Tango does not live... More

I have been dining at this restaurant for some years now and the service and the food have always been excellent. However, it was not the case for lunch today. I know that sometimes it is hard to be perfect but today was so much less than perfect that it will be quite a while before I go back. Today... More

My wife and I decided to try out the lunch specials: she had the veggy lasagna and I had the salmon sandwich. Although we were early, and it wasn't busy, our service was slow. When we did order, I specified, in English and Spanish, no cheese or tomato due to alergies but my salad came with tomatoes and my sandwich... More

I've been going to Tango's for years. It is far and away one of best restaurants in Ajijic due to its consistency, service and wonderful menu. Expanding from steaks and chicken and lamb, they now have pork chops, fish, a larger variety of pasta dishes, still wonderful and reasonably priced pizzas, and, great salads. My favorite is a small rib-eye... More
