The restaurant is basically a steakhouse. The variety of steaks are always cooked the way you want them. The appetizers are very good especially the spinach fritters. Could be a little more imaginable with the vegetables. The staff and service is excellent. The one draw back is that the tables are to close to each other.

We arrived late close to closing and they let us in. We had pizza and it was great -- thin crust and stringy cheese and fresh tomatoes. I left my wallet on the table and the waitress chased me down to return it....forever grateful to her.

Very generous and very good food. Good service. Bilingual staff. Enjoyable! (I must admit that it is a challenge to get there and find parking when the festival has blocked the roads nearby.)

The best steak I have had in many years... return 2 days later for another. Kid friendly. You need to book a few hours in advance. My wife said the Spaghetti Carbonara was great. Good choice of wine.

Tangos is a restaurant in the village that is popular with locals and visitors alike. Their food is consistently good, and I think all their waitstaff speaks English, so if your Spanish needs some work, no problem. They have lots of tables, but they do get very busy in the high season. Buen provecho!

What is it about some long-lasting places? They have good to great food, a lively atmosphere, attentive service and somehow the formula works. So it is with Tango. We had a great meal with friends who live in the area and they steered us to a few terrific dishes--the spinach fritters as starters, Provencal chicken which was delicious, and steaks,... More

A very popular restaurant for a great reason, the staff are wonderful and the food amazing. Right off the plaza it's a fun place to enjoy a night of entertainment.

My husband and I went here for a late lunch in October. Walking through the doors we were pleasantly surprised by how large the restaurant actually is. We had a quiet corner table. I ordered the grilled octopus, yummmmmy. This was probably the best I've ever had. No thing but fresh taste of the see and some grill flavor. It... More

We had fabulous margaritas along with excellent Malbec (Chile) along with very cheesy and delicious Dip De Espinacas. The Spinach fritters were incredible and Ensaladas were really good.
