We have visited one of their restaurants in Orlando and were please to try it here too. We were persuaded by one of their staff who approached us as we walked by. We were glad we stepped inside. It was reassuringly just like the one in Florida with lots of local artists work on the walls to enjoy and maybe purchase. The young servers were very attentive and the food and drinks came quick and was very nice. It is a bar type atmosphere but very nice and we will return again for a full meal experience.

We had dinner at this restuarant recently based on its proximity to our hotel and to Disneyland. From the exterior appearance, it held promise. The service, however, was poor and the food was of low to medium caliber.

Located in the Outlets of Orange outdoor mall (formerly known as The Block) Café Tu Tu Tango can be found near the AMC Orange 30 multiplex theater. It is a Spanish-themed restaurant specializing in tapas, which are small, appetizer-sized plates of unique and eclectic foods designed to be shared.

The dining room has a distinctive ambience with its open kitchen, exposed wood beam ceilings and abundance of art on exhibit. Apparently, local artists can sometimes be found painting and displaying their art during dining hours.

My wife and I shared an excellent Grilled Sesame Chicken Salad and a Taste of Tango Platter. NOTE that if you choose to go the individual small plate route it can become expensive very quickly, so the sample platter is can be a more economical alternative. The Taste of Tango Platter features a sampling of Cajun Chicken Eggrolls, Chipotle Chicken Empanadas, Stuffed Mushrooms and (our favorite) Pacific Rim Steak Skewers.

If appetizers and salads are not really your thing, they also have entrees and pizzas to share. Beverage-wise, they are known for their sangrias and mojitos; my wife enjoyed her red sangria.

So, if you enjoy noshing on a wide variety of small plates in a pleasant, art-centric atmosphere, you should definitely try Café Tu Tu Tango.

Brutal. We ordered 2 chicken salads. They were the most ridiculous salads I have honestly ever seen. My friend returned her salad because it was so bad. She got a pizza instead. It was DRIPPING with grease. She couldn’t eat much of that either. Another friend who is a vegan ordered pizza with veggies. Normally they use a non-vegan base for the pizza. So instead of putting a tomato sauce on the pizza, they put it in a side dish. So she got a pizza with no base. So weird. The drinks were terrible. Also, we had someone ask to take our pics and then tried to sell them to us, etc. Honestly I have no idea how this restaurant stays afloat. STAY AWAY!!!

Located right next to the movie theater, this place offers small plates (and larger plates) both inside and outside. The plates come out at random intervals so the service is quick. We had the blue cheese stuffed (and deep fried) mushrooms that were tasty, plus a entree size of salmon, asparagus and mashed potatoes. Also had the charcuterie plate, which came with three kinds of cold cuts, artichokes, olive tapenade, greens and peppers - it was quite filling and very delicious. We were there on a Saturday evening, and there was a belly dancer who moved from table to table dancing for tips. Our waiter was lovely.
