Loved Tamboo and loved every visit there as we stayed next door and went often. Somewhat overpriced however. Great atmosphere

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

After a morning of boogie boarding at Sandy Beach we walked over to Tamboo with our 3 kids (ages 9-15). We sat on the covered deck and watched surfers (unusually high surf day), ate amazing fish tacos, and drank cold beer (husband and I, not kids!). Tamboo has a breathtaking view and an awesome view. After a week in PR,... More

After a busy day in the sun relax to the sound of breaking waves, a soothing Caribbean breeze, a tasty meal and cool tropical drink at Tamboo Seaside Bar and Grill. Don't forget dessert! We devoured the red-velvet cake. Open every day at noon, the two-story restaurant is barefoot-friendly if you need to catch some shade after catching too many... More

Sit on an open air deck right above the beach. The water is 20 yards across the sand. We all walked down from our rental home for dinner and drinks a couple of different nights. I HIGHLY recommend the breaded shrimp bites to go with your drinks. More happening on the weekends than during the week, but it is all... More

The service is great, all food is great and can make a variety of great drinks, good kids menu and the feel here is... More

Tamboo Tavern has been a staple in Rincón for many years. The location is ideal for relaxing, taking a dip in the beach, have a snack or a full course meal with an awesome view of the coast all the way to Aguadilla. Attentive staff, great menu variety, great food, all add up to a very memorable visit. Maybe you'll... More
