Tapas / Small Plates
Located near the Orlando Eye and Orange County Convention Center, CAFÉ TU TU TANGO evokes a time when artists found inspiration and community in sharing food, drink and philosophy with one another. Set in a Spanish Artist's loft, the bohemian lifestyle fashioned life as a grand celebration, a feast of the senses to be shared and treasured. Together, artists found kinship over meals shared, over drink, music, and conversation.

One of the things that truly makes CAFÉ TU TU TANGO unique is our menu. Not only does our scratch kitchen serve up creative fare that captures exotic flavors from around the world, but we do so with appetizer-style portions that are meant to be shared. Choose an array of dishes for your table, and let the party enjoy them communally. Experience a spectrum of the world's most tantalizing tastes together. Savor both the food and the company. This is what life is all about. Come in and join the party!

3 years in a row and never a bad meal! Love the energy and art. The employees are attentive and always helpful to advise on food choices.

Best item- shrimp tacos
Worst item- signature Negroni , should have been called “the best mom and dads liquor cabinet had to steal”

With that said, great wine list and full bar!

I love this restaurant! Able to try small plates of some amazing foods that are exceptional in flavor and variety! The alligator IS THE BEST! The staff is amazing in their knowledge of menu offerings. I love to see the art on the walls and watch artists at work on their craft. I never say no to going here when we are in Orlando!

My only complaint was that it was so busy that even with a reservation we were a little late to be seated. The food was great. My favorite was the Greek Ensalada.

My wife and I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were a little disappointed. We went to Cafe Tutu Tango on one of our first dates so we were excited to go. Our server was unwelcoming and not attentive at all. At one point we had to 30mins for him to get our drink order and bring our dessert. We love the food and the atmosphere, but the service was bad. We probably will not be going back.

Over all very good. Service was a little slow on refills, food came out pretty slow this time around but acceptable since you have the taco station and waffle station to keep you eating. Drink service was slower then normal. I noticed for the menu has changed again. Adding back the fried chicken for chicken & waffles would be great, at the station or back on the regular menu. Not sure if vodka and champagne was changed on brunch but I got a headache and hangover. Not typical from all my other visits but again, maybe a menu change and using lower quality products. However, over all, always fun and great for entertaining newbies to TU TU. I think the bar station should be moved back, our group of 8 had the new table (old bar station) and when guest were on the waitlist and went to the bar, it was loud, crowded and uncomfortable - especially when you have 10-15 people right up against your chair.

Service was horribly negligent. Made a reservation and checked in and they forgot about us for several minutes. Then a girl who appeared to be inebriated came over to ask if we needed assistance. Finally seated, our waitress couldn’t get our order correct. She failed to take kids meal drink orders. She also messed up my sister’s order and then brought out multiples of my nephews. He had already ate his pizza. Icing on the cake was she did not apologize for this and was aloof the whole time. Food was okay, but only some dishes. One of the dishes (pear appetizer) was overly sweet, more like a dessert. I don’t think I’d go back due to the horrible service. The busboys were okay and more diligent than the waitress. Also as an artist, I’d say the restaurant was overly snobby for a supposed art gallery that doesn’t even exhibit accomplished artists. Just amateur art.

Love this place! Dined here for the first time a week ago and loved it so much that I was back for lunch the next day! I love 200 miles south of the spot and when I was back in town a week later, I seized the opportunity to take a fellow conference attendee to dinner here. Huge endorsement of the Cuban Sliders, especially if you dip them in the mojo served alongside! Btw, Taylor was an excellent server, quick, efficient, friendly, and very helpful in getting an order of the mojo sauce to take home! I cannot wait to find a reason to be back.

One of the US top restaurant!!! I have traveled all over the US and you will never find a trendier artsy restaurant with amazing unique food concepts. The food has unique favors and it’s out of this world. Service is friendly and the Art around the restaurant makes it a fun environment. You will love it!

Cafe Tu Tu Tango is an interesting place to go. The menu is all small plates but not small flavor for sure. This was not our first experience there and it was as delicious as before.

This establishment has indoor and outdoor seating. There is unique Art through the entire restaurant and it's for sale, you may even be lucky enough to see an Artist at work while you're dining. Everyone that works there is very friendly.

Can't wait to go back again.

Food was delicious. Tried the jalapeño Mac and cheese. Very cheesy. Turkey tacos were very good. Although tapas style, plates were plenty big enough. Passion fruit sangria was a good choice. Be sure and look at the pictures on the walls. Waiter was very attentive.

We have been many times before for special occasions, dinner dates and everything in between with great experiences, but this time was an exception and not a good one. We booked a table for 9 people for dinner before NYE celebrating. Reservations were at 7:30 and we decided on the Tour since we have done before with larger parties. First couple courses came out quick, but after that things started going down hill quick. Our waitress could not keep up with our table; dirty plates were stacked up, clean plates were running out, water containers were empty most of the night, alcoholic drinks had to be requested multiple times and food started to get really slow (kitchen, not server issue there). Ended up needing to rush a final course (7th course, didn’t make it to the end even though most were still hungry) and dessert because we had been sitting at our table for 3 hours and we’re going to be late to our next reservations. Last course was alligator bites which we waited 30 mins between the previous course and they were cold, and not good. Also had to adjust the bill because a drink was included that was never brought to the table because the bar was out of that particular alcohol.

Overall, dessert was good and the other courses were fine except the final round (of course, the one I wanted most). Timing was terrible and the restaurant was not that busy. Chef never came back out to visit the table after the intro. Usually the chef is very interactive with us and makes sure food comes out in a timely manner.

We booked reservations for our family that was visiting us from New York and it left a very bad impression.

Loved this place! We had a larger party so our waitress suggested the Tour of Tango option. This allowed us to try several dishes that we never would have. Some of our favorites, the brussel sprouts, the pears, and the beef skewers, were not all on our list to order but were excellent. The atmosphere was really neat too. If we are ever back in Orlando, we would go back.

Ah-MAZING experience. Miguel was our server and was knowledgeable and genuinely friendly! We made a reservation day-of, got seated right away, got delicious drinks in a timely manner, and all of our tapas came out in good time tasting fabulous. I loved the guacamame and cheesecake lollipops. I ordered a drink off menu and it was made very well. The atmosphere is artistic and had good music and ambiance. Can't wait to go back next year we are in town!

We always come here when in Orlando. Very cool ambianace and vibe with all of the artsy stuff going on. Wish the belly dancer was performing that night (Sunday). If you’ve never been, go when the belly dancer is performing. The place will be hopping and has a cool fun atmosphere for the entire family.

I usually love this place but this time we went it wasn’t a great experience. The menu wasn’t as impressive as it usually is. The Southwest Chicken Eggrolls tasted like a Tostitos pizza roll. One of our appetizers didn’t come out until after we finished all of our other food and it was cold. They took it off the check for us! I would still recommend giving this place a chance, as it is usually fabulous! The menu for late December was just not on point.
