About Cafe Tu Tu Tango - Orlando

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!

This place has changed a lot through the years. It used to be very hard to get a table here on a weekend night. Now they have added a patio with outdoor seating, and added seating capacity inside by removing some couches and lounge areas. Not the hot spot it once was, and I'm not sure why. Still a great vibe, and lots of action. You will always find local artists and performers doing their thing. Food menu is a little smaller than I remember, but there were still plenty of choices.

Was there 12 years ago on business, loved it then and still love it. You must try the banana, caramel pizza dessert. It is delicious! The tapas style dining leaves ample time for good conversation and people watching. Love this location.

Cafe tu tú tango is a truly unique gem of a tapas restaurant in Orlando. I have been a fan of this concept restaurant since first trying their food at the old coconut walk location they had in Miami/ coral gables. Wonderful menu items, drinks, desserts, art, music and good times sharing with those wonderful you love are guaranteed!

We all went for the bottomless brunch and mimosas. The food was amazing however we wished the bottomless mimosas didn’t end at 3PM because we arrived at 2PM. Our server Emil did an excellent job handing 10 of us and even went above and beyond by making the baby at the table smile.

This was a fantastic experience. We live about an hour away and took a friend who was visiting from out of state. We are all so excited to go back and do it again. When we walked in, the host was immediately ready to seat us, even though we were about 15 minutes early for our reservation. The seasonal menu is exciting. Everything we ordered was amazing, though sometimes it took a little while to get to us. The bottomless mimosa/bloody mary bar was fantastic. We could create what we wanted, just the way we wanted. Our server was excellent, casual, friendly, professional. Fantastic outdoor seating, not too loud or crowded, excellent service, and yummy food. This is our new go-to brunch spot!

WE always try to visit Tu Tu Tango when we are in town. Always great food and always something new. The dessert pizza is not to be missed!! I love that it is open late so you can get a snack or dessert late night. Keep up the good work and I would recommend reservations... you never know when it will be super busy even during the week.

The restaurant is great as always. The weekend brunch was perfect. They have an amazing mimosa/bloody mary bar. Fresh garnishes and additives for drinks. So I had the shrimp and it was AH-MAZING...the eggrolls were good too. The only thing that I think was kind of a let down was the chicken and waffles... they were soooooo small. I realize they are tapas size but In comparison to the rest of the portion sizes... these are very small. It is a bit loud but it works with the live band outside and the atmosphere for the brunch.

Café Tu Tu Tango is an original gem in the sea of commercial mediocrity that defines the Orlando dining scene. Every dish is fun, flavorful and well executed. It is a treat that I look forward to each time we go to Orlando for business.

Outstanding experience. The waitress was very helpful with making our final food selections. She had a great personality and added to the overall experience. The ambience added to the overall effect of a pleasant meal. The food was delicious. The passion fruit sangria is one I will NEVER FORGET..

 (Orlando)·Dined on January 21, 2018

Third time having lunch here because we really enjoy the ever-changing menu. This time was different as our server wasn’t exactly the most friendly. I tried to explain I always order this iced tea that is sort of like a passion fruit tea similar to Starbucks and he brought me out something that looked different but tasted similar. Not thinking much of it, I went to ask for a refill and didn’t know it was one of their “specialty drinks”. He never once mentioned this before I ordered so I was pretty unhappy to see if I wanted a refill I would have to cough up another $6. Six bucks for an iced tea is ridiculous!

The other thing that turned me off this time was he asked if we were done ordering after we went to grab some tacos at the taco station. We didn’t even order any tapas yet! And we had paid for the $25/person unlimited brunch option.

Overall, this time I left pretty unhappy with the service.
