Diner Reviews
  • "My first time to Cafe Tu Tu Tango was a very enjoyable experience. The food was delicious for small plate courses but a little higher priced than most casual restaurants. The service from the host stand through the wait service was excellent. I will recommend Cafe Tu Tu Tango to my friends."

  • "very busy location. typical small chain restaurant type of upscaled food found in newer 'town-centers' or malls, but food was well prepared and fresh. Not fine dining, but a good night out"

  • "We didn't get the waitress we don't like this time which was great! The waitress we did get though kept trying to deliver food to our table that we didn't order, 3 or 4 times! Um, Cat doesn't seem to have the hang of being a waitress yet."

  • "In the area for a conference and booked a table because they had an opening for five people at the time we wanted on a Friday night. Did not know anything about this resturant and decided to take a chance. The resturant is in a mall which should have been my first clue. We were seated right away at 7:30. Our waiter took our drink order but it took forever to get our drinks, he kept telling us the bar was backed up. Same thing with the food, only the kitchen was backed up. The tables seated after us were in and out before we received our food. They had a girl doing belly dancing and engaging the diners which was a fun diversion, other than that I can't say anything good about the place."

  • "Great ambience and the concept of a Tapas restaurant - especially given the repetitive menus of many chain restaurants - is great. In this case, the execution is lacking."

  • "Has potential. However, The magician you had on site was stellar. But he was quickly forgotten by the "D" rate belly dancer."

  • "I've been here before to have drinks outside. it was nice so I came for valentines day date. so dissapointed! music so loud in dining area, we couldn't have good conversation. service took so long to get our drinks. food came separately. I think this place is nice for drinks. but not for a date."

  • "The food was delicious!! Lobster bisque was outstanding, and the duck quesadilla was superb. Entrees were well cooked, and tasteful but our waiter was horrible. The drinks took forever and they weren't alcoholic, he actually forgot to put in our drink order. The food was served quickly but only drawback was that they never picked up our finished plates. We had to stack them neatly ourselves just to create room. The waiter would ask how our food tasted and after we replied he would just stand there and stare as if he were waiting for a magic trick. I'd compare it to someone who shakes your hand and holds it for too long and you have to pull it back or grant them ownership. All in all great restaurant with awesome outside seating and music."

  • "Nice small serving options. We had carne asada skewers (surprisingly good ketchup-like sauce served with it), fish tacos, and ceviche. Outside setting was a plus."

  • "Server was not clearing the many plates (tapas) as needed. Priced a bit higher than needed...but everything else was fine."

  • "We actually went after the movie instead of before, and the bbq chicken pizza was incredible as usual, the egg rolls are perfection and the white sangria is out of this world and so hard to find! I usually get the duck quesadilla, but couldn't eat another bite after the pizza and egg rolls. I have to go to movies more often so I can go to Tu Tu Tango!"

  • "I previously had gone to this place several times before and had wonderful experience. I no longer live in Orange County. I flew into Cali for the holidays and was very thrilled to have my birthday party at this location. I was very dissapointed with my waiter, I don't know if he was having a bad day. I came with a group of people expecting great service as always and was extremely dissapointed. Other people in my group had to go to the bar themselves to get there drinks. I spoke to the manager and she was very nice to complement me with a drink and a discount on the bill. But that was not enough to ensure my next experience at this location would be better. I will not be going to this location ever again or be recommending it!"

  • "The food was excellent, staff friendly and pleasant and the service was great will recommend this place to everyone. I like the fact that you can have dinner desert and get a nice piece of art work at a descent price. Would make a great place for a meetup happy hour!!!"

  • "The food was surprisingly delicious on a first try. We tried the appetizer platter and ahi poke and sangria. We were there for a snack so did not order my items. But, the items we had was enough to warrant a return visit. Service was good too."

  • "We went for my girlfriend's bday on 10/17/13 and were seated right away since we had our reservation. The hostess was friendly and was able to fulfill our special requests. The waitress greeted herself promptly and took our orders and all that. She was also very friendly. We ordered a bottle of wine. The wine took maybe 15 minutes to get to our table. I asked her if they do things for birthdays, which she confirmed and said that they'd take care of everything. Halfway through our meal, she says that she's leaving and would like to drop off the check. I'm guessing she just wanted her tip while forgetting about my girlfriend's birthday. So yeah.. that was a big bummer. The mango infused vodka and mango duck quesadilla were very tasty."

  • "The hostess was not at the front to greet anyone. N-one even acknowledged us for quite a while. When they finally did they were friendly, showed us to the table and we ordered pretty quickly. Food was good, service was good and ambiance was good. I would go back."
