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!

We loved the eclectic, vibrant atmosphere! We enjoyed different tapas dishes. Artwork is cool. A bellydancer was there for part of the evening. The only drawback was being initially seated in a tight corner. One of us would have had a view of a wall just behind the other's chair and really missed out on the atmosphere, etc. We asked to move to an available table just next to it and were accommodated. I'm not sure why we were seated there at all when other tables were available. Otherwise, a very enjoyable place!

Delicious and priced right especially if you get the happy hour drink deal M-F. I loved the flat bread, tenderloin, and my husband loved the alligator.

A very eclectic restaurant that has been open for years, but doesn't make you feel that it is old and tired. Very upbeat with great food and good service! Try the shrimp and grits along with the cheesecake lollipops! Both were outstanding!

Short wait at host stand. Found our reservation easily. Granted our request for non high top table. Service was top notch. Believe it was Andrew. Dessert given as consolation for lost food ticket/long wait on one item. Nice touch. Drinks recommended by server were to my liking. Multiple items ordered, scallops were cooked perfectly. Creole mustard sauce was delicious. Parking was easy. Art for purchase is neat.

Do not order the 25.00 per person all inclusive. My wife and I order a order of chicken egg rolls and she couldn't finish them. I asked if we can wrap them up so we can take them home. We were told that we couldn't. If I paid for it I should be able to take home my food. Never again....

Had a great time at brunch celebrating my daughter's 33rd birthday with family. We were a party of 9 and the server took great care of us......my husband is a huge water drinker and anyone who can keep his carafe and glass full deserves kudos. It was fun to make our own bottomless mimosas and bloody marys, taco bar was very good and the yummy bottomless small plates for brunch were delicious. Eclectic décor was fun. Plan to go again. If you're a local go during the off season when I-Drive area isn't as inundated with tourists.

Both my girlfriend & I split 4 separate apps. Roasted pork Tostaditas, spiced alligator bites, Vietnamese tacos and No way Jose Sliders. Phenomenal. We also had 2 signature in - house cocktails. Delicious. Art for sale everywhere, slightly loud atmosphere, music, and fast service! I recommended this place to everyone.

We were a group of 12 and we all enjoyed the large variety of tapas which are generous proportions. Was fun to share and try different things. Great cocktails, wine and beer. Our servers were efficient and fun. There was entertainment - a belly dancer - which makes it even more fun and all the creative artwork around. Great fun place, a must go to.

Always a good time, whether with a family or groups. Lots of variety in the food, so there's something for everyone. Drinks are good, though priced a bit high. I always recommend visitors come here, as it's one of the few places with going to on I-Drive.

We had to wait and wait for drinks and food. When the food came out it was cold because it was sitting some where and the waitress didn't bother to pick it up and bring it to our table when it was prepared or the kitchen just serves half prepared dishes. In either event it was horrible.

Consistent, excellent food and service. I have been coming to Cafe TuTu Tango for a number of years - I attend a conference in Orlando every two years and Cafee TuTu Tango is always on my list of places to take friends. Try the "Tour of Tango" - sampler for your entire party. Fantastic food and Chef was a delight.

TuTu Tango is a great place to try gator and other small plates, and enjoy laughing with parties of 6 or more. The fortune teller, painters and sometimes even live bands make the place super fun and the opposite of boring. Food is very beautiful, served tapas style, and the drinks/food are served fast. We recommend the fish tacos, all of the salads, the feta and tomato pizza, the lollipop style dessert and the strawberries dipped in chocolate. Have fun.

When we arrived early, we sat well before our reservation time, but then had to wait a little while to place our order. The food comes out as it is ready, so it is best to order everything you want and just have them arrive whenever. The place can get loud when the bellydancer starts performing, but it is pretty fun and upbeat otherwise. There are artists creating throughout the restaurant and we actually saw Johnny Damon this one time we visited. That probably won't happen when you go, but it was cool. The food was served hot and the drinks were good. The menu is pretty eclectic and it is worth it to venture out of your comfort zone.

This place was awesome. We heard about it from our son. The inside décor was funky and different. We sat outside on the patio and it was a great evening plus much quieter than inside.
The food selection was very diversified and being small plates we tried a lot and none disappointed. I will recommend this restaurant and will definitely return.
Great job!

Outstanding food and service for Sunday brunch while on vacation with friends. This is a really unique place in an otherwise tourist focused area. Artwork that decorates the walls is for sale and I could not twist buying something. Great concept that helps local artists. I wish we had a place like this near home in PA.

We try to eat at Cafe Tu Tu Tango everytime we are in Orlando for an overnight. We have been coming here for years and we always leave happy and pleased. Their Sangria is the best anywhere, fruit flavored, dry and not at all like the sweet, syrupy kinds served as sangria in so many chain restaurants. As for the food, not haute cuisine, but creative, interesting tapas all meant to be shared and all fresh, tasty, different and exciting. We have a few favorites: olives and feta, guava spare ribs (always a must have ), chicken and corn egg rolls ( another must have). People do eat platters here, we never have, and we strongly suggest trying and sharing from an interesting menu. This is an independent restaurant that survives time in a sea of national chains.
