We've traveled the world & enjoyed many wonderful meals in many places. Our conclusion: the best meals are prepared with the freshest, local products. We live in Kingston & are raising our family here. We support our local farmers & want to provide the best dining experience for our guests. Prepared with locally grown, seasonal fruits & vegetables & locally produced meats & artisan cheeses, our menu is a fusion of local flavours & international recipes. Our unique, delicious cuisine, complemented by carefully selected Canadian & local Prince Edward County wines, reflects our love of excellent food, exceptional wine & our appreciation of our community. We hope you love Tango Nuevo as much as we do.

Although there are many historical explanations for the word, our favourite origin story is that the first tapas were the slices of bread or salty meat which sherry drinkers in Spanish taverns used to cover their glasses between sips; that the word "tapas" is derived from the Spanish verb tapar, meaning "to cover". Since then, Spanish tapas have evolved to incorporate ingredients & influences from many different cultures & countries. These days, the serving of tapas is designed to encourage conversation because people are not so focused upon eating an entire meal that is set before them. In fact, socializing over tapas is so much a part of the Spanish culture & social scene that the Spanish people invented the verb tapear which means "to go out & eat tapas!"

The natural companion for tapas is wine. Tango Nuevo has assembled an impressive list of reds, whites, rosé & sparkling wines that will appeal to the casual sipper and the discerning connoisseur. With selections from local Prince Edward County and international wineries, there is something for everyone.
Tango Nuevo also offers a broad range of cocktails, from old favourites to specialties unique to Kingston. Our tempting array of martinis range from classic to refreshing to fruity to sweet. Can't decide? Ask us to recommend a signature drink & discover your new favourite!

"Best food and service in Kingston" DINER FROM BANCROFT ~ June 2019
Without a doubt, Tango Nuevo is outstanding. If you enjoy small plates, with intense flavour, this is the place for you. The fresh ingredients in the sauces, and the refined presentations make this our favourite dining experience in Kingston. Our waiter, had impeccable timing and made recommendations that ensured that our food choices and service were the best. We noticed that other reviews say this venue is expensive, however, compared to other fine dining restaurants, we found the prices per dish, and final tally to be VERY reasonable. Thank you Tango Nuevo. We don't live in Kingston, but we'll be back, to revisit your great food. *TripAdvisor*

"Romantique et délicieux" DINER FROM GATINEAU ~ June 2019
Les tapas sont délicieux et vaste sélection, restaurant moderne, belle ambiance, service amical et professilnwl, prix abordables! *TripAdvisor*

"Great ambience" DINER FROM TORONTO ~ January 2019
Our family are from Toronto and were visiting Kingston to celebrate our son's 20th birthday as he goes to Queen's. The food was excellent, original and wonderfully shareable. Great ambience for fun evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return! *Bookenda review*

What an outstanding experience, and even better if you have a group of 4 or more. You can order such a wide variety of dishes in shareable sizes, and each one will surpass the next. From fish to vegetables to red meat, each little dish tastes like it was prepared by it's own independent kitchen wizard. The waitstaff is very attentive and knowledgable, and will help you through the menu and help tailor your evening to the variety of tastes at your table. *Google Review*

"Fantastic!" DINER FROM TORONTO • April 2018
Again best food and service in Kingston-- c'est magnifique! It's always fun to revisit a restaurant a few times a year... spent the Easter week in Kingston and just like last year made a reservation for dinner and yes, ended up spending three nights for dinner at Tango... too many favourites, but please never change the Tuna Tataki! A special Merci Beaucoup to our wonderful server and the rest of the team. Bravissimo! A la prochaine and see you in July.  *TripAdvisor*

"Five Stars" DINER REVIEW • February 2018
Interesting menu. Everything we had was delicious. Don't be afraid to push the envelope for your palate and try something you wouldn't normally think to order! *Google Review*

"Amazing!" DINER REVIEW • January 2018
I hadn't been in years and had the chance to eat here recently and was blown away. There are so many vegetarian options, which is a blessing, and the cocktails are amazing-- supported by a great wine selection. It's a place to go with a group who has varied tastes and dietary restrictions and still be able to share. If the incredible food weren't enough, all of the staff we interacted with were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. *Google Review*

"My Boyfriend Wasn't a Foodie... Until He Came Here" DINER REVIEW • October 2017
Tango Nuevo has a great vibe, great cocktail menu and great food with a menu that changes seasonally to make sure its customers have sustainable and as locally-sourced as possible ingredients. If you're driving through Kingston, visiting your kid at school or just looking for a great date night, Tango is your spot! *TripAdvisor*

"Magic for your Mouth" DINER FROM TORONTO • September 2017
Visited Tango Nuevo on a recommendation from a true "foodie" who clearly knew what he was talking about! The chorizo with foie gras snow (yes, that's a perfect description) on crostini was an explosion of umami--hot, sweet, creamy and crunchy--probably the best bite of the evening. Which is not to say the other bites were not magical. The Asian Spare Ribs were divine-- falling off the bone and just the right sweet and salty. Two to three tapas plates per person was just right. Go there and experiment with the truly inspired menu! *TripAdvisor*

"Canada Day" DINER FROM TORONTO • July 2017
Awesome and unique Kingston dining experience. Highlight meal of our weekend spent in Kingston for Canada Day. Food and service was top notch and I would rate comparable to the best tapas restaurants experienced recently in Barcelona and Malaga. Suggest ordering three items per person for a well rounded and true tapas experience. *TripAdvisor*

"Anniversary" DINER FROM PARIS, FRANCE • April 2017
This was our first time and I absolutely loved it. The food was incredible. The server brought out all our dishes individually. This way we were able to savour each one and really appreicate it. It is not a cheap place to eat but so worth it. We will definitely return. *TripAdvisor*

"Fantastic!" DINER FROM KINGSTON • February 2017

My favourite restaurant in Kingston! Delicious food, great service, amazing beer. What more could you ask for? Their menu has something for everyone and they timed the delivery of every dish perfectly. Everything at this restaurant is perfect, even the locally made soaps in the bathroom. *TripAdvisor*


"Congrats" DINER FROM SPAIN • November 2016
I'm from Spain and my first experience in the restaurant was amazing. I like the way they fuse different types of Mediterranean gastronomic dishes. I will visit Kingston again to try more tapas! Congrats to Tango nuevo team... perfect service (professional and good attention to the customer) and lovely atmosphere. *Facebook*


"Always Fabulous!" DINER FROM KINGSTON • October 2016
We've been going to Tango for several years now, and the restaurant just gets better and better. We go there as much as we can... they still have some of the fried goodies--sweet potato frites, vegetable empanadas, fried avocado fingers, fried calamari (all excellent)--but they have lots of grilled and roasted items now too, along with plenty of items served fresh and raw...depending on whether you eat meat, fish, or just want vegetarian, you have many wonderful choices ahead of you. The daily special is usual fabulous, too. I also want to single out the wonderful service. At Tango you are treated as if you are the most important customers in the restaurant. No matter how busy the place gets, all the servers are welcoming, helpful, attentive, and friendly--without ever being overbearing or obsequious. Part of the reason we return to Tango time after time is that all the staff help us to feel so at home there. In fact, I like the place so much, I almost wonder if I should post this review--Do I really want others to be crowding into my favourite place in Kingston?! *TripAdvisor*


"Really tasty tapas and different, too" DINER FROM UK • September 2016
Walked in off the street in the hope of getting a table, the restaurant was full and the friendly staff found us a place in the bar area, which was great. The food was amazing and with some different tapas that I had not tasted before. Atmosphere was very vibrant and a great night was had. I would recommend this place without any doubt. *TripAdvisor*


"Nice Refreshing Culinary Addition to Downtown Kingston" DINER FROM BIMINI • May 2016
Nice to see a quality tapas restaurant in downtown Kingston. Diverse selection of tapas and also charcuterie available. Food was amazing, service excellent with staff being attentive but not oppressive. Really loved the decor and atmosphere, nice blend of old with new. *TripAdvisor*



"Perfect for Grazing and Gabbing" DINER FROM SEELEY'S BAY, ON • October 2015
This restaurant makes a MAJOR commitment to sourcing locally, and the dishes are outstanding as a result. We have tried most of their "small plates" and loved them. Even my 96 year old mother loves this place... the variety and the excellence. *TripAdvisor*


"Oh my... this is good... really good" DINER FROM NEW YORK • July 2015
Dish after dish of tapenade, cheese, kale salad, sausages, fish tacos, grilled shrimp and on and on. And every single one of them was flavourful, colourful and delectable. Plus, the ambiance is a treat: small and cosy, filled with interesting people, light Motown music playing in the background, a Charlie Chaplin silent film playing on a small wall over the stairs, dining inside or out, super-efficient, friendly and knowledgeable waiter. A good time and exceptional tapas. *TripAdvisor*


"Perfect for sharing with anyone!" DINER FROM KINGSTON • May 2015
Tango Nuevo underwent a change of ownership a few years ago and the updates have been fantastic. Lots of local ingredients, fabulous wine list and convenient downtown location. Trendy and yum. Great for a drink and a snack on the patio or a long, drawn out wine and tapas tasting with friends or lovers. *TripAdvisor*


"Nuevo riche with old world class" DINER FROM KINGSTON • December 2014
Fantastic flavours, textures and creativity in all the dishes. Loved that Chef Dan came out to tell us about some signature ingredients. Service was on point and the server knew the dishes well to describe each one. Atmosphere was very nuevo riche with some old world class. Next time will try the cheeses. Thank you! *Email Review*


"I have been back to Tango Nuevo again and again..." KINGSTONIST.COM • Mar 11, 2014
Last year it seemed our local food joints lining our downtown core were closing faster than they were coming in. - Read Full Review
