Looking for a good haitian restaurant shouldn't be hard in south beach and it wasn't. Tap Tap was recommended by several people and was a great choice. This restaurant has culture and the food has the flavors of their culture. Eat inside or outside. Enjoy the passionfruit juice (a little sweet.. just add water).

Service was a little slow, but will forgive that due to the quality of the food. We started with Akra which are malanga fritters. they are fine by themselves, but the dipping... More

I ordered the fried red snapper as a main course and it was so delicious I can not remember anything. Would definitely recommend if you're on south beach and you want fresh, tasty, authentic, and reasonably priced food. Instantly a new favorite.

We came in on our boat from central Florida and wanted something homemade. My husband found this place. Since I had lived here in the past and had never been here, I was a little skeptical. We had goat and ox tails. It was perfect! Afterwards, we were in a food coma. The food was delicious and fresh.

This was the first time I had Haitian food and it was amazing! Great jerk chicken and the ox tail was off the hook! Staff were friendly and the restaurant is definitely an experience to see.
