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.

I haven't been to Tango since they revised their menu. I loved it before so the bar was set high. Tonight's meal EXCEEDED my expectations. The menu has some incredible choices - most of which can be made gluten free. It was hard to decide...More

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

I went here with a friend because we were in the mood for seafood and the menu had plenty. The ambiance and service was nice enough. We went on a Wednesday night and found it rather quiet - made reservations just in case. I had...More

One of our favorite places to go with friends has been Tango Bistro. Unfortunately they have changed their menu and no longer offer the small plate menu. Everything we ordered from the new menu was disappointing. (Steak Frites, Gnocchi ratatouille, some of the drinks). I...More

First time here. Overall, a very enjoyable experience. All the food we tried was quite good, if unexceptional. The $12.50 corkage fee is fantastic. We had escargot, Caesar salad, lobster gnocchi and steak frite, plus dessert. Really, absolutely no complaint with any of the items...More

Went on Sunday night to try the bottomless bouillabaisse special. The server was very friendly and the food was extremely tasty, but given that it was the special I figured they would have a giant pot of the stuff simmering and it wouldn't take 10...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 delicious, hand crafted small plates and fantastic wine to create a casual atmosphere for all to enjoy. 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!
