Nice location on the beach

The location is certainly the best thing about this place. The food is all right, but not fantastic ( the fish is too cooked, the shrimps are too breaded, the red wine is too cold, etc...). Desserts are heavy and too sugary. The service is very prompt and you always get the feeling that waiters are... read more

The location is great with a real island vibe. The food is more than palatable with large portions. Service was friendly and helpful. There's a kids menu. Fun place to eat.

We went here at 7:30 on a Friday which is early for this place. They stay up later here and party so at 7:30 we had the entire upper deck to ourselves. So awesome. The waitress was a transplanted local who was a bit older than us. She Rocked! lol She was knowledgeable on all the food options and took... More

Stopped by on a Friday night for drinks right before the DJ kicked in the music, nice!! It is one of the local hangouts for young adults but most were vacationing from the US and of course lots of surfers. The music was pumping and all were having a great time. Good choice of beers, mixed drinks…It has an deck... More

Suprisingly all of the drinks we've had on our week-long vacation have been so light, we've asked a couple times if they forgot to add the rum. Not here. They were just right and delicious.

Perfect place to park it on the beach and be able to get drinks and food during the day. Also a really fun spot to go dance at night.

One of Rincon most popular places. Breathtaking view! A place to just relax, drink, eat and great music. A little bit pricey and no reservation is required.

We had so much fun at Tamboo over the course of a week. We were there almost every night of our stay. We had dinner there twice and food was very good! Try any of the Ceviche, very fresh and good. Fish was always good. A bit higher price, but felt it was good portions and food for price. The... More
