Great quiet intimate place with mostly continental fare. Excellent Caesar salad, made tableside. We had the filet mignon and the pepper steak and both were fabulous. Flambé peaches for desert were also a real treat. Love it.

Armando has had several restaurants in Ajijic for many years. This is my favorite. It reminds me of a small bistro in New York. For cooler weather there is a fireplace which warms the room nicely. The atmosphere is very nice. The menu is varied...More

We have lived here two years and never tried this place. Shame on us. Very cozy (and warm!) on a cool night. Small, quiet rooms make for delightful table conversation. All four of us liked our meals. Best things: 1) they make a great paloma...More

I am not the owner; just a patron. I am not aware of any night that they are closed, but call ahead to be certain. It was one of our favorite nights in Ajijic, but Tango was by far the most memorable evenings ever. A... More
