Was our first trip to Tango, and we loved it. Great decor, nice ambiance and soft music. The waiter was knowledgeable and efficient, and our food was delicious. Will be back again!!!

I just love the space, the service and that bone-in porkchop (as well as the napoleon dessert). Some of the other dishes can be hit and miss, but, hey, as long as you can do some things superbly, I am a fan.

We came to Tango for lunch probably 15 months ago, and liked it. We didn’t find it fantastic. Came back this week for a business dinner function. The menu probably has changed, the food was very well done. Salads were very tasty, and good portion....More

Best meal we have ever had here. The lamb and the pork chop were both top notch, as were the sides - fries and whipped potatoes. Word to the wise - the size is very American, so you can safely forego any appetizers. The corkage...More

Smuggler's Inn originally began in 1967 as Bar X Steakhouse, an American company. The current owner, Frank Krowicki, bought out his partners and went to work developing a brand new concept to Calgary. His vision included a mix of casual, late night fine dining and live piano bar. Over the years, the building expanded around Smuggler's Inn, with the addition of Winelite dining room on the west side, and Backstreet lounge and dining room on the north side. As the dining scene in Calgary began to change, Frank too saw a need to change and adapt. The first endeavour was the conversion of Backstreet lounge to Open Sesame in 2000. Open Sesame has been serving fresh, Pan Asian cuisine to happy customers ever since. The conversion of Backstreet dining room to Bolero was complete in 2007. As Calgary's first Brazilian style steakhouse, Bolero continues to satisfy meat lovers with its unique and interactive style of dining. Our latest addition is Tango Bistro, on the west side of the building, which once was Winelite dining room. At Tango Bistro, we bring together fresh, locally inspired comfort dishes with a focus on cold, sustainable seafood and top quality steaks.

In May 2013, Smuggler's Inn celebrated 40 years of serving mouth-watering Alberta prime rib and steaks alongside many original items, which have made us famous around the world. Four restaurants under one roof keeps us busy, but we wouldn't have it any other way. And the rest, as they say, is history! Smuggler's Group Rewards is a unique program that rewards you every time you visit us.
