Great place to visit after hours. A mixture of locals and tourist. I have visited a few times and always have a good time!

We had to visit to have their famous monitor and it was excellent. This is a casual place right on the beach with an outdoor deck. The food w good and so was service.

This is a great place on the beach to enjoy lunch or cocktails and watch some surfing. We went midday and had great service, if you are there at the right time, you may see some whales!

Food was very good, and even our picky teens were happy. Enjoyed the citrus marinated ceviche special. Great view of the beach and surf. Bilingual staff, and service was prompt and friendly.

My husband found this place on yelp was ecstatic to try "the best beach bar in America." We got there, ordered dinner, and waited for an hour... Even for appetizers, which arrived at the same time as our food. The only redeeming quality was the upstairs deck. Even at night, the view was magical, so that's why I'm giving Tamboo... More

We decided to get to Tamboo to enjoy sunset but even though there are comfortable beds on the rooftop to watch it, the balcony blocks the vision. The staff can't speak Spanish, which is incomprehensible in Puerto Rico. The prices were not very expensive for a place on the beach (5$ a Pina Colada without alcohol). At night, it becomes... More

We've been to Tamboo twice now after mornings on Sandy Beach to escape from the afternoon thunderstorms. Our server, Ingrid, is a sweetheart and an angel. She (and the other staff too) were super sweet to my toddler son, and served us yummy food and drinks both days (the drink menu is fantastic for beach "recovery", too). I admit it's... More
