“authentic French food & desserts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2014

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.

“suprise! pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

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

“Excellent French Restaurant in Cebu, near Capitol Site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

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 and again and would recommend it without hesitation.

“its just new”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

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 stay in one of the tables in the garden at night, be sure you have good vision to pick out those that may settle on your food--insects buzz around since the table candles are similar to those small candles offered outside the churches. Get tipsy enough so that you wont care if the candle that burned out is not replaced at all.

“Best macarons in Cebu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

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!
