Take a jacket, for the wind off the water can be cool, but welcoming in the hot Puerto Rican sunshine. The view from the dining area/deck is stunning, especially at sunset. The food is ok, but the setting clearly makes this a 'must' visit.

Nice place to have some food or drinks, right on the beach. We had pasta and burgers. The sauce on the pasta was very tasty; we even used it as dressing for our salad. The service was good. I definitely will go back.

Just drove by and dropped in. Hmm. Nice place. Wow, STELLAR margarita. Took a stroll on the beach. Decided to come back for dinner, ate upstairs on the patio with the moonlight shining over the waves, just an incredible view. Very fresh fish, great service. Definitely a must-try spot, a real little hidden gem. Ended up coming back a couple... More

Stopped by for a drink and a bite to eat during our stay in Rincon. The bartender, Pucho, was interesting and shared information about the area and other travel stories. It was raining and the wind was blowing (power even went out while we were there), but the staff just kept up their business, and food and drink never stopped.... More

I am giving Tamboo five stars all the way because of the restaurant's friendly server who we had last time. Since our last visit few months ago, the same girl was very friendly and are all smiles. I mean, it feels so good when the server is friendly, we just had lunch at the other place called Calypso Cafe and... More

We ate lunch at Tamboo at least 3 times on our recent trip to Rincon. We were staying within walking distance and the view at Tamboo is amazing, so it was a no brainer. Great place to have a few Medallas and kick back. On our first visit, they had a special of blackfin tuna tacos that were AMAZING. None... More

This place is right on the beach with a great view of the beautiful water and the surfers. This is the place to be on a Saturday night. Tons of people, great music, drinks and the sounds of the waves on the background.
