We often visited Tango`s but took a break. So on our latest visit the place was quite empty - not as full as usual. The portions have decreased and the prices increased. The atmosphere not so warm and welcoming anymore. The waiter handed us a wine menu with more that half of the wines missing. And we HAD to pay... More

Very disappointing experience on Sunday. We've enjoyed previous visits to Tango's, but everything went wrong this day and we will not return. Only one waiter on duty, who did his best to placate the many unhappy diners. We waited an hour for our food and ribs arrived burnt with five measly strips of calamari! They'd run out of chips so...

Quite a plain interior but excellent food served well by friendly staff. The ribs are as good as anywhere you will find and quality steak.

Firstly, the entrance is very well hidden if one does not know the place! Service was friendly and effecient - no complaints there. My fish was supposed to be fresh but wasn't. Chips very good, veg the standard butternut and spinach. I don't understand why restaurants serve this with all the other veg available. My brandy pudding was more brandy... More

I am never disappointed at Tangos, not only because the food is top class, but also the service is quick & friendly. Their steaks and Calamari are legend & have bee raved about for years - but they don't seem to have dropped their standard at all.

Took some friends from Johannesburg there to experience the 'best ever calamari' but was bitterly disappointed. It was OK just five short years ago!! Hosting was good and attentive plus the spare ribs were good but................tango's WAS famous for their calamari. Oh well.

Good for a birthday party though not for fine dining. Service is very average and the food was fine. I did like their hosting skills.

Booked for a quiet Monday evening for 5 people. Long time since I'd been there and I was looking forward to a repeat of a steak that I'd had some years ago. Restaurant wasn't busy and the initial service was good but later we struggled to get attention. the chairs are really uncomfortable so perhaps they don't want you to... More

We've been eating at Tango's for many years, last night we went with five friends and had the most awful meal, service ever. Out of six orders only one was correct. One guest had to wait longer than the others (which was a long wait in itself) because he was told his order had been given to someone else. I... More

I visited Tango's with my wife and daughter tonight. It was good, but there are a lot they can improve on. The service was friendly, but a bit slow and inattentive. The food was good, and the price was great! The decor is from a previous decade and needs a re-think. There was a fireplace and that was great. It... More
