Had dinner (Appetizer sampler, tacos, and the Grouper special of the day) and enjoyed it. Food was fresh and flavourful! Margaritas were strong but tasty. The guy serving us was friendly and passionate about the restaurant. He was attentive to us until his friends came...More

While walking by the plaza early during the day I noticed the chalkboard outside the restaurant and decided to come back later on in the evening. Good Choice. The restaurant inside is very nice and modern with ample seating and plenty of space. This particular...More

Great food (I had the beef burrito), great drinks (best sangria!), and great service! Set in the heart of downtown, this lovely little gem offers a great dining experience. Would definitely return.

We love Tamboo and were pleased to see this downtown mexican restaurant was owned by the same person. The quality of the food was very high (as we've come to expect at Tamboo) and the service was fantastic. It's not busy here in Rincon yet...More

My husband and I stopped in on a Saturday night. The restaurant was about half full when we arrived. We had the jalapeno poppers for an appetizer and they were quite tasty. Different than standard poppers, but very good nonetheless. Our main course was fajitas...More
