This is a place you must go when at Rincon. They have very good food and a friendly staff. What I like the most is that it has a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean.

No need to get in the car on this one. You can literally swim out of the ocean, towel dry, and sit down for some sunset and delicious food. We were from MD, in Puerto Rico for the first time, and this place sums up what its like to kick back and relax in Rincon. We had burgers and salads, and other dishes, and everything was great! The setting just is amazing with the jutting hills along the beach and the blue beautiful water. At sunset it's killer. We will definitely head back to Tamboo!

My husband and I went twice- once for lunch and once for a sunset drink and app. Lunch was good- we shared the ceviche of the day which was shrimp done a bit differently than the norm. This had a basil and caper base with red minced onion. Unusual and very good. We also tried the mussels- plump and flavorful with a great broth, however a fair number in the bottom of the bowl were unopened- 7, to be exact. I wonder if these had been on top of the pot while cooking and perhaps needed another minute or so of cooking. Our third choice was the pork dumplings with mushroom soy cilantro butter. Also good, wished for a bit more of the sauce. Our server was friendly and responsive. We opted for the shady lower deck for lunch.
We chose the upper deck for sunset and opted for the plantain crusted shrimp- loved the flavor and crispness.
Both decks share a perfect view of beach and water- perfect location. This is a great beach bar with a creative menu - also a fun drink menu, again with some different choices. The atmosphere is laid back and comfortable. The upper deck also boasts a couple of outdoor couples lounges- looked comfy and cool fur cuddling- unfortunately for us they were occupied at lunch time , at sunset the cushions had been removed.
Tamboo is a great place to hang out and definitely warrants a return visit!

Recently renovated, Tamboo Tavern is worth seeking out. Right off the plane, friends swept our weary bones to Tamboo for our first island lunch. What an incredible location overlooking Sandy Beach in Rincon on the west coast of Puerto Rico. The food was simple and very good. The Calamari app is crisp and delicious, and was shared by everyone at the table. For lunch, I had the Yellow Fin Tuna Skewers with mushrooms, peppers and pinapple that disappeared. My husband had Grilled Seared Tuna with a ginger sesame soy reduction with a crispy rice cake and it too dissappeared. Perched over the beach and eating wuth the warm breeze in your hair, what a way to start a vacation. The new deck on top of the restaurant would be great at sunset.

Great little place on the ocean. Had two mixed drinks and an entree and the bill came to a little under $40 (that included the mandatory tip of 15%). The pork loin entree was AWESOME as was the lettuce wrap appetizer. The caipiriña was refreshing and the Puprle Haze (with Hypnotiq) was sweet enough that I considered it my desert. Was there on a Monday and was able to listen to live music. The place was recommended to my group by one of the guys who works at the parasail company where the marina is...glad we listened to him. Not cheap but a nice night out.
