Tamboo was highly recommended by a few people so we decided to check it out. The location is great. Nice breeze and literally right on the beach. Server was really nice and helpful. We ordered a bunch of things off the menu and the food was just ok. We really enjoyed the wings. I could see how this a good... More

We tried Tamboo just for a light lunch and it was okay. Has a beautiful location right on the beach, and nice table lay out. The appetizers we tried weren't overly spectacular but weren't bad. Our waitress really never checked on us after serving us though, so that took away from it a little. Overall not too bad, but not... More

My boyfriend and I came here twice because the first time was so good. The New York steak was to die for (both times) along with the chicken penne. The atmosphere was amazing and the food was literally the best we had in rincon.

The location for Beside the Point Hotel & Tamboo is prime, that's why it's probably the most popular business, but they are not ethical there. I highly recommend using a credit card to pay (open tabs) at the bar Tamboo, keep track of what you drink, and ask for a check before paying. Review it carefully before paying. I've been... More

The food was OK but too expensive for Puerto Rico. Good location and the drinks are good but again not that great for the price

Food by my experience has been neither a rave nor a pan. Prices are high by local standards but low by a tourist standard. Friendly atmosphere and a great seaside breeze. Easy to find a bi-lingual convo. Many gringo transplants drop in so it is a good place to gather impressions.

We didn't in this place, but have some drinks, have fun on the beach and wait for the sunset. It was spectacular. This is a guest house with a great bar and restaurant. Not enough parking and don't have shower for clean up a little after the beach. The water on the beach is not the best comparing to other... More
