Did you know that Tango Bistro do a killer 2 course business lunch for just $20? If you haven’t tried it yet, I’d strongly recommend it! We had a lusciously thick and rich French Onion Soup, and my favourite White Anchovy Caesar to start, followed by Croque Madame with maple pepper ham and Swiss cheese (but we weren’t expecting the fries too with it!), wild boar meatballs with a very generous serving of handmade pasta and pomodoro sauce, and some spot on Moules Frites with chorizo. Can’t be beat!

As Calgary’s only Relais et Chateaux restaurant, you might think Chef’s Table is mostly for special occasions, but think again! It’s a great place to relax in front of the roaring fire in the lounge after work with the Flights & Bites special. Chef Sean Cutler regularly changes his selection of house-made charcuterie, cheese, paté, gravlax, pickles, mustards and jams, and they’re all perfectly paired with a flight of three wines. Get down there quickly though as we hear the lounge and dining room are being renovated after Valentine’s day until early May!
