We have been coming to Tamara's each year for number of years since it first opened in downtown Apalachicola and this year was no exception. The food is consistently tasty with a nice variety of Chef's specials, a nice wine list and good craft beers. Some of the dishes have a Caribbean feel to them, but not all of them... More

We came on a Friday evening. Hubby had Paella and I had Pecan-crusted Grouper with rice and beans. Our food was really really good. My wine, Sav Blanc from New Zealand, was fantastic. The service was just okay. Slow, somewhat uncaring attitude. Some confusion and inefficiency happening around the restaurant as it got busy. We were never asked if we... More

Discovered this place serendipitously en route to Cape San Blas. We sat on the porch with our dog and our waitress brought out a bowl of cold water for our dog soon after we sat down. We had a fantastic light fare lunch--we ordered fried oyster salad, fried green tomatoes, and a piece of key lime pie. Each dish were... More

This place is pet-friendly--you can sit on the porch with your pooch (or, in our friend's case, a hedgehog--really!). The menu is sophisticated, but not overwhelmingly expensive. We had fish tacos, paella (best outside of Spain), and their grilled tuna burger. The next night I had their special scallop dish, and these were the best scallops I've EVER had.

This was one of the best meals we have had at a restaurant in a very long time. The portions were perfect. The food was fresh with just the right amount of sauce and flavor. I had the fried pork loin and my husband had the fish tacos and we cleaned our plates! Then we ordered a second helping of... More

We have been coming to eat at Tamara's for the last 5 yrs and have never been disappointed. We had the tuna burger, amberjack tacos and the burger of the day. The tuna and burger came with homemade chips with a special sauce, excellent. The fish tacos came with salsa and chips. It was very good. Their food is not... More

While taking a break from a beach house full of kids, we wandered through the shops and streets of Apalachicola and stumbled upon the delightful Tamara's. We shared a delicious bowl of creamy corn chowder to start. My husband enjoyed a salmon salad with spinach and strawberries with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing. The salmon was grilled to perfection. I had... More

Wonderful breakfast! Great location if you are walking around Apalachicola, For lunch, the salmon salad with spinach, strawberries, grapes in the mix, fresh and yum. Sit at the high top tables in the front window and watch people go by, then walk a few doors down and buy a piece of chocolate at the candy store. Perfect!
