“Excellent food served with grace”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Although this restaurant is quite small and somewhat cramped, it is clean, light, and the waiters polite and attentive. This is high quality food and presentation. A lovely place to take a friend for a meal.

“Awesome hidden gem!!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Nice, quaint, hidden gem!! The restaurant is small but we've never had a problem getting a reservation at the time we wanted. Food preparation and presentation are exquisite. Excellent salads and entrees are significant enough to share!! Love the atmosphere and the martinis are delicious!!

“Not your typical Honolulu dining experience”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Tango cafe was a great find for my friend and I, as tourists craving something more produce-derived than your typical Waikiki burger or spam fare. The atmosphere was relaxed and understated, the waitstaff attentive but not overbearing, and the food exquisite! We tried the tasting menu which was all well balanced and had a great variation of flavours, with delicious house made gravlax, a decadent mushroom
and prawn risotto, a flavoursome 5-spiced braised beef, and a fun dessert trio. Would recommend to tourists and locals alike - so great to find this little cafe gem!

This small neighborhood restaurant has excellent, gourmet quality food at an excellent price. It is one of the great values in Honolulu. Don't miss this one if you are in the area.
