Cafe Tu Tu Tango - Orange
Very friendly staff greeted us and helped us with ordering. 8 of us went there early evening and had two sampler plates and a glass of sangria each. With an order of paella and a rice dish called, "Barcelona Fried Rice" added to the order, we were all full. The chocolate cake and the cream brulee were all delicious. Fun, artsy decorations were great.
We had The Barcelona stir fry and it was fabulous!!
We've been here before but it's been a long time. We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated right away, but the service was very slow. It was sort of busy, but not crazy. There were empty tables all around. It took forever to get a glass of wine and a draft beer. The menu is much smaller than I remember and the food was just so-so this time. The ceviche was pretty good and the empanadas were just ok. It was all so slow & mediocre that we cut our visit short. We ended up ordering only a few drinks & appetizers, then left and ate dinner somewhere else. Very disappointing.
I went on Christmas Eve with friends. Not to busy and good food!
I have dined at the Tu Tu Tango in Orlando many times. This location was very disappointing. The food was not good quality and the service was friendly but not great.
Wonderful small plate oriented restaurant with a unique ambiance. Great selection of well prepared varied menu items.
TuTo Tango has been a steady "go to" restaurant in the Block in Orange, since the mall was re-designed. Always a good choice for before/after the movies as well as a small snack and drink for lunch or dinner. The kitchen just keeps getting better.
We decided to make a reservation here (our first time visit) to get a quick bite to eat before seeing a movie next door. Very fun atmosphere and bonus!!! We arrived in time to take advantage of the last hour of happy hour prices. Great small plates with very good appetizers (super filling) and 1/2 priced drinks 🙌🏻
We are always treated really good.
We always go at 10pm for the appetizer happy hour.
We have been eating here for years now and this a great place to eat and enjoy the atmosphere.
Our original waitress was great but her replacement when she went on break never smiled or refilled our waters and drinks.
Surprise 1/2 price tapas on Monday’s! Efficient service, no waiting. Restaurant could have been a little cooler. Service had great attitude & she was helpful with suggestions on menu items. White peach sangria, full & lackluster, no peach flavor. Did not drink , credited to our check. Beer was icy cold. Black bean soup had great flavor, just like the Cuban restaurant in Key West. Spanish antipasto was delightful, dressing had good flavor & balance. Definitely worth going to after a long day at The Parks down the street!
Our waitress, Clara, was EXCEPTIONAL in every way. 10 in our party, with 5 kids. She treated "each" person with SUPERB service. Genuine, attentive to details, friendly, fun, personable, remembered names. One of the best servers EVER, that will stand out in all of my dining experiences. Wished every restaurant could clone her. 😁
Great night for date night. After 10pm 1/2 price appetizers. I love how we can sit, talk, and eat for 4 hours without any problem. The service is great.
Clara our server was wonderful. Great food and reasonable prices.
I would not recommend this restaurant as our party had a very poor experience. The only good rating I could give was for value, and this is only because they comp'ed our entire meal because of the whole overall poor experience. So I have to give them credit for not charging us.
But the place was dirty, the food was salty, and the service was poor. We advised our waitress that we were in a hurry because of a pre-planned event in one hour. The server acknowledged and said that she would rush our orders, Two (out of six) meals were served in a timely manner.
But the other four did not arrive for quite some time. Twenty minutes later, two other meals arrived, but by now, we were getting worried, and the first two diners had already finished. We asked the server about the issue and we were told that the other two meals (sandwiches) were delayed because they had to bake the bread! We cancelled those meals and we were getting ready to leave when the sandwiches arrived just as we were asking for the check. So two of our diners left hungry.
Again, they acknowledged the problem and comp'ed the meal, so I give them credit for that.
But I can't recommend them, and I wouldn't go back either.
Great place awesome food and service
It was a great night out. We sat outside. Not to hot and not to cold. Great happy hour appetizers. Not just at the bar so if you don't drink, like me, you can enjoy your appetizers anywhere.
Cute place- fun artwork! Chips and salsa were tasty - wedge salad was pretty good too. Would definitely return.
Brunch was great. Good food and selection for the price. The drinks were not so good. We ordered the bottomless Bloody Mary and when the 2nd came the mix had been changed. We ordered cocktails instead and it was evident that the bartenders were new.
Food was good. Server sucked. She clearly did not care and when asked why, she was, whatever.
They used to have such good servers.
I would totally recommend this restaurant for anyone that wants something that's definitely a little bit out of the norm for so cal and a lot more on the creative side. I like the creativity throughout the entire place as well as the art that you can purchase on the back side of the place as well. The service was great, food was great and the belly dancer they had that night was hot and talented! So next time your at the outlets of orange check this place out it's definitely worth it!
Great for dates, option for photos is also nice
Only place we could get a reservation during expowest. It’s in an outdoor mall which we didn’t realize. Solidly mediocre. Food was ok but waitress kept forgetting things we ordered and we had to remind her. She kept going “it’s so crazy!” And it wasn’t even very busy. They had a belly dancer with a weird light up dress which all seemed out of place. Overall it was just ok food with bad service. If it’s the only place you can get a reservation because of an event, it’s not awful and probably better than some of the chain options, but wouldn’t be my first choice.
Waiter was a little slow. Sangria wasn’t award winning great. Sampler and fish tacos was ok.
The place could have been great if the service was at least ok. However, from getting seated to paying the bill was unspeakable. The server took a long time just to get our drinks. When drinks were brought to our table, there 3 drinks missing. Food was served one at a time. We have 2 little kids and 1 food was served and the other one kids meal was served late. Server do not check if you need anything or if meal was even ok. You have to stand up and raise your hand and call him to get the attention.
They were really short servers. Food took a long time & getting things like plates & extra napkins was a mission. Food was cold by time we actually had plates to eat it.
We were encouraged to sit outside. We were promised a free dessert, we even weren’t offered one. Felt as we were used to attract costumers by sitting outside (it was chilly, and the outside heater was not working). But the food was good.
The food was plentiful and flavor excellent! The restaurant was quiet. Service was a little slow but pleasant.
Very friendly staff and comfortable place to eat prior to going to the movies or going to Burke Williams spa. The owner, Jim, was extremely attentive to us.
I took my son who is in college at Chapman and 6 of his friends out for dinner, and we had a great time! We wetre seated at a perfect table outside. The host wqs lovely! Our first waitress did not seem very interested in serving us, but we soon learned that our "actual" waiter had been on a break, and when he took over, the service was wonderful! The food is fabulous, fresh, and interesting. This is the third time I've taken a large group to your restaurant, and have not been disappointed except for the small annoyance of a "stand-in" server not being on her top service behavior because she was covering for someone else.
Great place to people watch while having some tasty appetizers.
The food was good, but customer service sub par.
Excellent service and good food. Will continue to dine there.
We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio on a Friday night. We ordered the hummus as well as the pear salad for appetizers. Both arrived quickly along with our Sangria. The sangria was good, but a little watered down. The kids loved the pizzas and the meat kebabs were delicious and cooked perfectly. We had great service and look forward to coming back soon.
We went for a girls night out. It was fun, yummy, and just plain different. Exactly what we wanted! I really love the Cuban skewers they are my favorite. I recommend this restaurant to everyone in Orange County who is looking for something that is a little different.
While our waiter was very nice and accommodating, he disappeared for long periods of time (asked for a heater to be moved close to us and had to ask another waiter for help, dessert took forever, asked for check and never saw him again - had to track him down). Our reservation was at 6pm and planned for a little birthday shopping afterwards, but wasn't able to leave the restaurant until 8:30pm (stores closed at 9pm).somewhat disappointing
A must have is the Chilled Mediterranean Spinach dip and the Ceviche. Both great to share.
Came here Mothers day around 10:30 am. Greeted at the door and given a gift for Mothers day and seated immediately as we did have reservations. We sat on the patio our server was friendly and came right away to take our drink orders and tell us about the buffet.
The food was yummy had a little bit everything the desserts seem a little too sweet and rich for my likely especially the mousse. overall experience was awesome and def will be back as we do frequent this place often for happy hr and the Easter brunch :)
