My wife and I had heard of Barrio de Tango for several years but had not had the chance to dine there previously. We stopped by in the early evening and had a wonderful meal. The sangria was incredible and the steaks were excellent. Our server, Oscar, was attentive and helpful. We will definitely return!

We found this through the recommendation of a couple we met on the plane. It is definitely a local favorite as we were the only tourists. Great great great sangria and empanadas. And the steak, great cut of meat and cooked to perfection. We will be back!

My husband and I were recommend to this restaurant by our hotel manager. The best restaurant in san jose cabo! Very friendly staff, ambience is adorable! We had the empanadas and the steak, both were out of this world! Dessert was incredible also, I had the brownie.

As an Argentinian I felt a draw for a restaurant called Barrio de Tango. Reviewing the negative ratings of other people made me feel somewhat leery of spending my dinner in a place that had so many detractors, but I went anyway. Paty was our server. Everything went fast, the bread with chimichurri, the juicy and delicious empanadas, sangria with... More

When we pulled up to this place I was really excited. It is off the beaten path a little and didn't seem real touristy; exactly what I like. I had read the great reviews and was looking forward to a steak like I saw in the picture on trip advisor. First impression: OK. I am going to make some comments... More

I don't eat much beef and I still love this place. They have great salads and other options but their main deal are the steaks cooked over the open pit. I love the starter platter with sausage, zucchini, caprese type salad. My wife gets the Vacio steak. I don't really know what cut it is but all she says is... More

My son and friends took me there for Mothers Day and we had a great experience. The staff was friendly and personable, the meals were delicious and the atmosphere was very relaxing and festive. The decorative lights came on at dusk which enhanced the ambiance. We enjoyed the sangria filled with chopped apples and walnuts. I had so much fun... More

Never having been to a restaurant serving meat in this style we didn't know what to expect. Bottom line it was fantastic. We stopped on a Friday night and without reservations. They were nice and accommodating enough to still find us a table as the place was packed mostly with locals. Since there were four of us we were able... More
