“amazing”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

The cerviche was outstanding. My husband had the short ribs which was delicious and the meat soooo tender. No knife needed.


They serve my favorite drink these days...piquito picante...which is very refreshing and has a bit of a kick.

Whatever I have ordered has been wonderful...cannot wait to go back!!!

“A bit of South America in the desert”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

Small, quaint and refreshing. Great appetizers and ceviche. Friendly service. It's small and intimate, make reservations, there aren't many tables. It's hard to say what to try, it's all good. We like to "graze" on the appetizers; dates stuffed with chorizo, mussels in saffron, the bikini Contigo (not just a grilled cheese sandwich).

Our favorite entrees are the chuletas chimichurri (lamb) and the churrasco (beef) but the quinoa risotto is killer, even if you're not a vegetarian.

Lots of SA beers including my favorite black beer, Xingu from Brazil.

One of Tucson's hidden treasures.

“Miami in Tucson”
Reviewed 13 February 2011

Miami comes to Tucson
The early success of Contigo may in fact be another example of a shooting star in Tucson, This was our second visit and the first was pleasant. This time , not so much. To start we had a 7.30 reservation. On arrival we were old a few minutes. We were invited to the bar where we sat for minutes. We were told that the problem was a table of ladies that sat there for 2.5 hours but as soon as they left, it was ours. So, you can imagine our delight when the tardy offenders finally left but much to our dismay "our' table was then given to four "east coast" types with obvious BOTOX signs.So 40 minutes after our reservation we were seated next yo the door that presumably the entry to they dishwashing room. I came away with the distinct feeling that the "east coast" botox group would not sit there. The food was good, bus as is typical with these trendy places, not worth the attitude. A word o advice Tucson is not a town where the real economic power is in the hands of younger guys with dress shirts left hanging out over jeans.
