    Stopped by Cafe Tu Tu Tango for brunch and sat on the patio. Service was initially great but by the end it was quite slow (I’m guessing they just over sat our waitress). Food quality was good, size was typical for a tapas place, but it took forever to get our orders. We opted to not do the endless brunch and for some reason the tables around us were getting 2-3 of their orders before we got one of ours. If it would’ve happened just one time I would’ve said it was a fluke but the fact that it happened multiple times leads me to believe there was an issue in the kitchen that day. Overall it was a good time and the staff were friendly so I would go back, just maybe not for brunch next time.

    We had to make 2 reservations for a party of 13 which we did in advance. The reason was our group was too big and they considered a party that large as “an event” where there was a minimum spend/person that we would be charged if not everyone showed up, etc. When the first half arrived they told the host of the 2 reservations and were told there was only one reservation but then eventually found the 2nd and they were sat at a table. When the 2nd half came in, they were told the first half had arrived and were sat, then went to seat the 2nd half at the other side of the restaurant at a table. The reservations both said high top table seating. When the host was told this she went back to who I am assuming was the head host or a supervisor. They asked if they could be sat with the rest of their party and were told no. After a lot of attitude from the hosts, they finally sat the rest of the party at least in the same area as the first half but with other tables in between. The servers were really attentive but some of the food never came. We did not even get to order any food for the first 30 minutes despite bottomless brunch only being 2 hours total. Our drinks from the bar took over a half an hour to be delivered. The pizzas took an hour to get to our table after ordering. We have been to cafe tu tu tango many times over many years and we brought our friends so they could enjoy it and it was not a good experience. The food was mostly really good as well as the drinks. But starting with extremely rude hosts when we did absolutely everything right really started the experience off in the worst way. Then when service was so slow it really didn’t help. We watched the table next to us (who sat after us) receive dish after dish nonstop while we just waited. We did not feel like the value was worth what we paid at all. The only really positive is that our waitress (Dulce Rubi) was so lovely and did everything she could to try to push service along for us.

    Excellent food. If you don’t like cinnamon then stay away from the Moroccan meatballs because that was really weird to me. The rest of the dishes we tried including the filet skewers and southwest chicken egg roll were amazing. The crispy Brussels sprouts were some of the best I have ever had.

    The food was a fun collection of tapas. If you sit on the patio, the noise level is fine. If you are inside after bout 7:30 you should want to be part of a loud crowd. There was a random Michael Jackson impersonator and a belly dancer that came out on the patio but other than that, it was no problem to ignore the party atmosphere going on inside.

    Cafe Tu Tu Tango had amazing food and a variety on the menu. Some of the best food I have ever had in Orlando. It is a tapas restaurant - so all small plates - but we got several for our table to share. Lots of energy & music here so great for events, celebrations and birthdays.
