A word from Tango Bistro
Tango's menu offers contemporary American Cuisine in a comfortable setting, located just off the train tracks in Bryn Mawr. You can settle in to our Main Dining Room in a cozy banquette, enjoy dining by the fireplace or perhaps the intimacy of a smaller room with bright French doors. Our Train Room is reminiscent of a dining car as the train whizzes by the window. In the summer, enjoy Tango's deck seating. A large wrap-around patio comfortably seats guests under a shaded canopy or along our fabulous Cantina Bar. Voted "2008 Best Al Fresco Dining on the Main Line" by Main Line Today.

Our menu features the comfortable dishes you always love and we feature seasonal specialties with some cultural flare. Tango offers an extensive beverage menu and wine list to compliment your meal.

Diner Reviews
  • "I kept reading about the French Onion soup and... it's amazing! My friend loved the Black Bean soup, too. What we really appreciated, too, was that the staff allowed us to stay and talk. This was a first date and we lost complete track of the time. We came in at 1:00 pm and when I next looked at my watch it was... 5:00..!! The staff didn't say anything, but we knew we had to leave when the dinner crowd started entering. LOL So, staff... thanks so much for understanding and we'll be back. (And, I'll look at my watch more often!) Thanks! :-)"

  • "We sat on the outdoor terrace which has a great bar and vibe overall. The gazpacho soup was divine - my husband had the red snapper and I had the filet mignon which were cooked perfectly- would highly recommend on fronts. Great service too!"

  • "Beautifully restored former baggage room of the PA RR at Bryn Mawr. Delight for either special dinner or routine dinner out. Open Table reservation made earlier Friday was available for us promptly at 6:45pm. We were seated in the quiet large room with fake fireplace providing lots of ambience. Extensive menu with many specials in fish, meat, etc. My 16 oz. Medium rare sirloin was spot-on excellent and my wife's veracruz-style fish was very good. Entrees followed a shared Kale salad with tasty vinaigrette dressing, although kale was slightly wilted from sitting in dressing too long. Extensive, affordable wine list ($8-10/pour) and large craft beer selection. Great dessert selection. Good value. Not only for neighborhood folk. Free parking."

  • "Tango is a favorite spot for us. Gazpacho was fantastic - even better than we had here previously. My filet mignon was perfect & I liked their new presentation of this classic entree. Everyone in our party was pleased. I had to bring half home and enjoyed it for dinner the next day. Had no room for dessert."

  • "The crab cakes were special -- full of lump crab. The burger was excellent -- juicy and tasty."

  • "I ordered Eggs Benedict with Salmon which was wonderful. The Vodka/Pineapple cocktail was OK. The Mimosa was better. Calm atmosphere. Service was not at all intrusive (yea!). Only knock: From the photo on Open Table, I thought we would be dining in a garden setting; however, our table overlooked the parking lot. Other than that, all was well. I recommend."

  • "Tango has withstood the test of time. It has been here for years. The service is attentive and the food is fine. The parking is a plus. The restaurant offers deals - birthday specials and points toward cash rewards."

  • "Have been to TANGO several times. Our table was in an area, in the back..place pretty empty Within 1/2 hr..women walking back & forth setting up for a party a few tables away. Most had heels on, felt like I was eating w/a marching band. Very annoying. Many tables empty, it is a big place ..not quite sure why they put us in that area....or why they were put there Food fair. Had quiche, very heavy to digest..salad bland & bread no big deal Not worth taking a train to have lunch here..other than seeing a friend who does not like coming in to town."

  • "the setting was cute,next to trains going by. food lacked polish and interest. Flavors didn't meld together. Chocloate flourless cake tasted like heavy piece of fudge.Veal was chewy. We got to the restaurant a half hour early for 7 pm reservation and hostess couldn't seat us even though restaurant was 3/4 empty. She had to see how 6:45 reservations worked out. If they were going to have a table available for us at 7, how did a 6;45 reservation play into the mix?"

  • "I always enjoy Tango, either for lunch or dinner. Mostly the food is fresh and well prepared and the service is excellent. It can be noisy in the evenings, on the weekends My only complaint is that it is hard to get in and out of the driveway do to the overpass nearby. Thank you."

  • "I live in Haverford, and Tango is a mile away from my house. I love this restaurant - It's my favorite lunch spot in the Ardmore/Bryn Mawr/Haverford area. Great bar, where you can sit and have a drink before going to your table to dine. The Train Room has romantic booths with large windows, and the trains run along the tracks right outside the windows - Feels as if you are on a luxury train in their dining car. Wide selection of food, both healthy (salads, soups, turkey and chicken dishes), to decadent. Good selection of wine by the glass, too. A+"

  • "We had a typically pleasant, tasty lunch at Tango's. And when I left, two women in a car stopped and asked me about Tango's, so I listed its virtues, and they promptly parked and went in. Can't buy that kind of advertising for any amount of money."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Great variety of food! I have been to Tango multiple times and it is consistently good, with a changing menu that offers many choices. Many choices for kids as we'll!"

  • "We enjoyed an evening of very tasty fish and a plate changed to meet our needs. However when we needed to leave the server was lost and wench did bring the bill got lost again and when he finally rang it up he split it instead of the separate checks we requested. We didn't want to wait even longer so we accepted this but we're not satisfied with Mike's service."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Taste of food very bland, uninspired. Quality and consistency has declined over the years. Out of four people only one liked what they ordered."

  • "Service is always gr8 and love the choo choos going by from my booth btw (by the window.) gr8 selection of small plates and and entrees. Desserts to die for and onion soup is THE best. As anyone can plainly see, I LOVE TANGO!"

  • "We had a lovely dinner at Tango, seated in a booth at the window. As trains went by, it was fun to watch for passengers' faces in the windows. The food was good and service as attentive. The outdoor area was large, although since it was warm, we chose to eat indoors. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We always enjoy our meals here. Good food, good service, nice atmosphere. The outdoor bar and dining area is great in good weather. And if you're lucky you'll get a train or two whooshing by. "

  • "He managed to slump his way to our table..seemed disinterested in us or being a waiter. Took the order. forgot a few things. Like ketchup for fries. Bread & olive oil comes before the meal not for dessert. Told the manager, surely when I come back, he'll be long gone He'll have a short shelf life Friend had ordered coffee, then a refill..had to wait & call him to get it. a few times Another waiter brought the stuff the first waiter forgot Never asked us how the meal was or if we wanted dessert. So we didn't even bother .. went out for frozen yougurt instead of having to deal with him"

  • "Tango is a good standby on the Main Line. Our server, Matt was very attentive and prompt. The menu selection is great...along with a long wine list. There were 4 of us and 3 enjoyed our meals. The only odd thing was the music selection playing-it was top 20 throughout the dining rooms. We would have preferred something more relaxing-felt a little like we were at a club. "
