Sounded like a fun place to stop

Had a nice menu for snacking or eating and had live music during Our visit. We didn't see a dance floor but that didn't stop a few couples from taking a spin around the floor.

Don't go here. The wait staff is rude, the food is average, the prices aren't great. Not a nice place to eat, unfortunately

While visiting Apalachicola and eating many a meal of fried fish, we stopped for lunch at Tamara's Cafe. Seated outside along the sidewalk we ordered some great grilled fish tacos and a Venezuelan dish with pork and plantains. It was the best meal we had in 14 days on the road and we ate plenty. The sidewalk atmosphere and the... More

We ate here the night after we ate at Tamara's Cafe, because we wanted a light meal. The selections were very numerous and varied. Each one we had, of I think 6, was delicious. The service was exceptional. Very friendly and prompt. Casual atmosphere like most places in Apalachicola. Fun experience overall.

Tapas is set up as a bar/restaurant with wonderful Latino - southern foods. A fun light atmosphere. Offering from Trivia to Southern Blues entertainment each night. Young and old mix in this whimsical atmosphere.

It was recommended to us by several locals and we had fun at karaoke. We didn't eat there but others said the food was pretty good.

We called in for a drink as we had already booked elsewhere. Very welcoming staff, (even though we weren't eating) Good atmosphere, pretty busy for a cold Tuesday night. Would certainly try the food next time we are in town!

We needed dinner after snacking for lunch on a boat trip. Unfortunately for us, it was Valentine's day so Tamara's was booked solid with reservations but their Tamara's Tapas was open. My daughter's pork tacos were okay but my husband's and my snapper on yellow rice w/salsa was out of this world wonderful! Excellent flavors. Very fresh and perfectly prepared... More

We come to Apalachicola primarily for the oysters. Tamara's does not specialize in these gems of the sea but they do a nice job of offering alternatives. Our vegetarian friends like the beans and rice. The fish suggestions are usually well worth it and well prepared.
