"Tambarina" conjures up a Portuguese vista of LM prawns and seafood, and other exotic foods. The menu is comprehensive and includes some of the imagined dishes. I had the curry prawns (otherwise known as prawn curry!) which was good and a reasonable portion, but I thought a little expensive at R149 for a serving (compared to Jo'burg prices). My wife's calamari, she said, was steamed and very soft. My son was mostly satisfied with his steak, but his wife's fish was undercooked and not tasty. My granddaughter loved her spaghetti bolognaise (but she even loves the concoction of the same name I might prepare for her). Cost, with one bottle of wine came close to R800! (No befores or afters!)
The food was OK, easier than home-made for a travelling family. Service was friendly. But next time we'll try a different Komatipoort restaurant.
