“Average.. Misnomer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

Well if you are driving to this place be advised there is an $8 fee in the collier park area.. If you walking up from beach no problem.. Food is average. Burgers/homemade chips/hot dogs/sandwhiches. (Gilled chicken, veggie,tuna ) really limited selection!
The word cafe in name is very misleading.

Best for walk up beachfront fast food only!

“Best food on the island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

I am so happy I found this gem of a cafe! The food is priced so well and the food is incredible!! I am a vegetarian so having the veggie wrap was so convenient and the best I have EVER HAD! My husband had a burger and said it really is the best burger on the island and as for the kids they had chicken finger and loved the waffle fries! I can not wait to come back, my mouth is watering just thinking of the food there!

“Great food, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

After a hard morning, kayaking, paddle boarding and walking along Tigertail beach, we had definately worked up an appetite. Tigertail Beach Cafe was located very conveniently. Martina who ran the cafe was extremely friendly and delightful, and her food equally as good. I had the blackened Talapia sandwich and my husband and son the cheeseburgers. My son thought the burgers were the best he had ever tasted and my husband agreed.....he wanted another one! As for the Talapia sandwich all I can say is Mmmmmm! delicious. Excellent value for money. Thanks Martina.

“Overall okay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

We went with high expectations after reading the reviews here so we were a bit let down. The hamburgers were good but certainly not the best we have eaten. The chips they make are thick and quite good. We wanted to try the crabcake sandwich but we were told the cook that makes those was not working today. Overall it satisfied our hunger after spending time walking the beach.

“Perfect for a lunch at the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

Though this is typical in its food offerings, the location is anything but typical. The patio is clean and in one of the most beautiful spots on earth and the food is tasty.
