Ate here many times during our one week stay in Rincon as it was right on the beach. My fav was the fried fish sandwich. The staff are laid back and helpful, though things move at a slower pace. Fine with me on vacation, embrace Island life!

Awesome views and sounds of the waves crashing at Sandy Beach. Would have been 5 but..We came in with a big group so one of our apps items got forgotten. However, it wasn't a big deal because the portions were very good sized. The server was very apologetic and friendly.

The steak was great. Tender, juicy & flavorful. Upstairs dining makes for a beautiful & delicious meal. If u eat downstairs view is great too. Everyone is friendly. We have been there 2x just this short trip alone. Appealing appetizers. A little hard to find. Check directions. We really enjoyed the 2 visits. Enjoy!

Great ending to a beach day in Puerto Rico, food is great but a bit pricey. The setting is magnificent, sitting right in front of the beach watching a great sunset and waves hitting the shore.

Great food and drinks, friendly staff, great setting right on the beach. The lobster was 40$ and a whole pound of it! Rice and beans very good. Drinks were great as well. Best place to grab food near our hotel which was serenity

Went for dinner at Tamboo with my partner. The menu is somewhat small. I had a cheeseburger. It was juicy and flavorful. My partner had the bacon chicken wrap - it was unimpressive. I also has the la Isla verde drink - very tasty! It's right on the beach and the sunset was amazing. The drive to get to Tamboo... More
