They have your traditional Puerto Rican food along the traditional American food. You find a little of both worlds, you can choose to have your mofongo along your french fries.

This seemed to be a tourist trap. Views of the beach were great. Drinks were weak, even after complaining to the bartender. And the food was just ok. Gift shop was overpriced. There are a lot of places in rincon better than tamboo.

Read the great reviews. Not impressed at all. Drinks were missing liquor. Good ok but small portions for the price. Service super slow

I got there by mistake and had an amazing time. Food and drinks were great and all on a beautiful front beach location. Will definitely go back any time.

Of the three stars I gave this place, 2 and a half are for the location -- right on the beach, with some great views. The food is, at best, mediocre. Maybe the equivalent of your local fern bar. I guess they figure they don't...More

We stayed one week in Puntas, walking dist. to Tamboo. At first we feared it would be your typical...great location but average food and overpriced...not at all!!! It was outstanding, fresh seafood with very reasonable prices. I highly recommend Tamboo. Every server was so friendly...More
