Great location and good food

We just ate some appetizers and waited out the rain, but it was a great atmosphere to watch and listen to the ocean, then walk directly out onto the beach. The food was good (pretty standard bar good). We got ceviche that was pretty good, but we were charged extra for chips! We got about 5 to go... read more

My second time here this year...food is excellent. Service is superb. Prices reasonable. This two story restaurant has a great view of the waves at sandy beach from all seats in the house. Upstairs a viewing deck that serves drinks. At night it's awsome.

Fish Wrap is all I have to say. My wife and I probably at 3 of these each during our vacay. Perfect setting and fun nightlife if you get the chance to go on a weekend.

I've been a client for many years now, and the place is just plain great. Be it drinks, snacks, main courses, chit chatting with the owners, relaxing with friends and family, or going for a swim in Sandy Beach (Punta Higuero beach), this place is tops. It also has apartments (Beside the Pointe Apartments) that can be rented for a... More

My family (couple and two teens) were in Rincon for a week. We surfed at Sandy Beach on our first day and had lunch at Tamboo. So yummy! Great ceviche, chicken wrap, burgers, drinks, and service. Laid-back vibe with music (mostly in English) and friendly staff. Right on the beach so great views too. We came back for lunch 2... More

A great place to have a drink on their rooftop deck and look out over the ocean, but you will pay a premium for it over other spots. Food on the other hand I would say is just average - better off heading across the street to the food cart - great fish tacos

This is a good place to spend some time staring at the ocean while having a couple of drinks and eating some local food. Try it.

We did not ate here we only had drinks but the view from the bar is unique. Since the wood is stain dark it makes a huge contrast with the blue water and sky you see from inside. It is open air but has open windows that looked like art you could hang on the wall of you house.

This bar/restaurant has the most beautiful location on Sandy Beach. It is easy to order a drink and sit on the upper deck and look at the ocean. Food is overpriced however and very average.
