We went to Tango recently because it was close by, but with some trepidation due to an earlier uninspiring dinner (in July 2017). Tango used to be an excellent tapas bar, and they changed to a more traditional menu last winter. This was our 2nd...More

Website made it appear that they were conscious of and served gluten free. But we found the server wasn't willing or able to go thru the menu to understand the available options other than steak and fries. Had the seafood boil which was fun, but...More

Tango Bistro is amazing! We were a little underdressed in jeans and everyone else seemed to be dressed up. (Lots of buisness meetings it seemed). But tbe staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious. Everything comes in appetizer sizes so it's perfect...More

I wanted to say that our second visit exceeded our expectations. The pot au feu with the marrow bone was particularly excellent. The goat cheese appetizer was also very good. Shall return.

My family met here for the unlimited bouillabaisse, bread and beignets. Amazing, well worth the $22/person charge. Service was fantastic and the food was excellent. The bouillabaisse was an authentic recipe with lots of real seafood, we were all impressed. The flavours were so great...More

Description
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!
