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!

 (Orlando)·Dined 2 days ago

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.

We visit Cafe Tu Tu Tango every time we are in Orlando. Last Saturday we brought some old friends that we haven't seen in a while and everyone had a wonderful time. All of the food is delicious, the beer selection was awesome, and the service was excellent. Cafe Tu Tu Tango is truly a beacon of originality in the dark corporate sea that is International Drive.

Went for lunch for a coworkers birthday. Our server was Frankie he was excellent. He made great suggestions for both food and beverages, answered questions with detail, and even brought chocolate covered strawberries with a candle so we could sing happy birthday to our friend. The food was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the Guacamole Hummus, Guava BBQ Ribs, and steak skewers. Overall had a great time.

This is my daughter's favorite restaurant in Orlando n(she's an artist and loves the art displayed). We keep coming back every time and I really enjoy the small portions of really tasty and well prepared food. Not your typical US restaurant... be warned!

 (Orlando)·Dined on January 13, 2018

I normally love Cafe Tu Tu Tango, but we were disappointed this time. This was our first time having brunch there, and the service and food were very disappointing. The service was very slow (we ordered from the Bottomless Brunch menu), a few dishes even came out after we had already paid the check and were preparing to leave (more than 45 minutes after they were ordered). The food served at brunch doesn’t compare to the lunch and dinner menu. Every dishes seemed to be missing something, leaving the flavor unsatisfying and unremarkable. The decorations are beautiful and the atmosphere is fun. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner, but definitely avoid the brunch.

We came across this restaurant on Opentable and it was the perfect option to what we were looking for! We were looking for something out of the ordinary and it sure was! It was full of energy and excitement. It also had a lot of unique food options that were fun to share and try! I would recommend this place to anyone in the area!

 (Columbus)·Dined on January 11, 2018

Tu Tu Tango never fails our expectations. The restaurant is filled with creative art from local artists. The art complementd the creative and well executed tapas menu.

Just order the carafe of sangria. Light and refreshing, it's not too sweet and great in both red and white.

Their take on multiple varieties of tacos is fun. The tuna sashimi is fresh and served with a nice pile of wakame dressed in an authentic Japanese dressing. But most of all, absolutely do not miss the poached pears.

Service is spot on ans food delivery is very quick. Order your food in shifts or ask your server to spread out the delivery. It's worth taking time to enjoy each dish.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on January 8, 2018

The service and food were great! I have two dietary restrictions and the server worked with the kitchen to make sure I got something that would accommodate those needs. They were out of one of the dishes I could have and the willingness to find a solution was such a relief. It’s always hard eating out with restrictions and this place was fabulous. Of course the food was AMAZING too!

 (Orlando)·Dined on January 1, 2018

We leave in Brevard County and when we visit Orlando this the place my daughter, who is a vegetarian likes to have dinner. My son was visiting from California and we want to show him that we can get good food in Orlando. We always prefer to sit outside because of the noise level. We like to talk during our meals, but this last time was too cold and we venture inside. We always have fun, the food and service were amazing, but I left with a little headache from the noise and yelling over it. We will wait until is warm again to go back and enjoy the outside sitting.
Thank you.

I loved the scenery inside of the restaurant. Very artsy and different. Which was good because I wanted to look for something different. The food comes out and small appetizer portions so we were encouraged to order a few plates of food at a times because they will be coming out at different times. Everything we tried was very good and came out really hot and fresh. The Cuban sliders were my favorite for the night. I also liked the egg rolls as well. Nice cute place for a date. Would definitely go back next time!
