Fun, laid back atmosphere directly over the beach with good mojitos, fish tacos and ceviche...the fish sandwiches, wraps and grouper was avg. at best but the views and chill nature make it worthwhile.

The views are great at Tamboo. The food was ok but did not leave a great impression. Staff was pretty friendly but a bit on the slower side, especially for there only being 3 tables of people present.
