The places was really nice. I went with some friends and we had a great time. The beach view was priceless and employees were very attentive. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to have a good time with friends or couples.

Excellent service. Great beach-side view and spectacular sunset view, specially from upper level terrace. Parking is tigh all over mostly anytime. Mojitos are average, beers are not the coldest but manageable. Good food.

Although this little gem was nearly impossible to find (we finally had to ask a local), once we did it was so worth the hassle! GPS is pretty much not going to help you in Rincón. But the moment we finally arrived we were pleased. We met Nestor at the bar and he told us to sit wherever we liked.... More

Waves lapping at the pylons. Not a bad lunch. Great drinks. Shaded tables with sea view or go up on the upper deck for sun and wind in your hair. partying at night.

I went on 2 different occasions and had fun both times, lots of young good looking people, mainly surfer tourists. Some are dressed very casual and some dress up a bit. Music was good both times. Parking is a little difficult so get there early.

I went here after a wedding I attended directly next door to the tavern. The whole wedding party went there after the wedding and we had a great time. Very casual, local folks, great music and relaxed atmosphere!

We were looking for a place to eat this last Saturday and decided to go to Tamboo for drinks and to eat something. The place was full but the service and food was as good as always! The food is always fresh and service always friendly You can go there without any doubt
