    Tango Argentinian Grill

    Tango has been our go-to steak restaurant since we first heard about it from Curt (burghboy) and Maggie. This restaurant has never let us down. They have a great early bird deal with land and sea options but we always order off the regular menu because we like the Churasco Tenderloin
    It's a 10oz steak cooked on an open flame. It's tenDer and juicy, a meat lovers dream. It comes with potatoes and veggies but I focus on the steak and barely touch the sides. We started with a grilled portobello stuffed with spinach and gouda. It was good, not amazing , but I did like it.
    we also had a drink specials strawberry mojitos and they were so good we had 2 each.
    Service was good as usual but we did have to ask for our check. I don't understand that because we declined dessert and coffee, which one would think would indicate we wanted our check. No big deal, we just asked and she brought it.
    This is where my biggest pet peeve occurred. I hate when servers ask you to review them on Trip Advisor. To me, of your food and service speaks for itself I will write a review, but I can't stand being handed a card and asked to review. Does anyone else feel this way, or is it just me?

    I had to include a pic of the table settings. I love the cow print, who knew cow print could be made to feel classy?

    I could not agree more! I don't recall which place handed me a card recently but I almost laughed in their face. Its beyond me how someone would ask for a review. Enjoy the night, I am going to make a drink myself, lol.

    Don't mind being asked for a review..... but to be handed a card with the website and etc... that's beyond acceptable. Always enjoyed Tango.... busy little plaza with great people watching. I remember Tango before Burger King was beside it. The dining room used to be much larger and featured Tango dancers every night. I miss that.

    i hate receiving a card and a request for a review.
    Good service and good food should be the norm EVERYWHERE (Aruba and elsewhere) without the "trip advisor or aruba.com/forum" review on the minds of the wait staff, customers and chefs and owners.

    I was handed a survey card at Tulip which surprised me. Annoying!

    We received one of those cards at Linda's Pancakes. I just shoved it in my pocket and kept it for a souvenir. People can ask what they like but I don't feel obligated to oblige.

    Your restaurant reviews are great. It is helpful for the people who have not tried a specific place. Thanks.
