This place is right on the beach with a great view of the beautiful water and the surfers. This is the place to be on a Saturday night. Tons of people, great music, drinks and the sounds of the waves on the background.

We went on a Saturday night as we were told it was a place for young people to go. The food was okay, but the location was beautiful right on the beach. There was a band setting up but they didn't start until after the food had been finished by all the patrons so we left. May have been fun... More

Not customer oriented. Would not allow us to eat and watch the ocean.there was a lot of tables available. Slow time of day. Very rude!

Made us separate two tables because we were only a party of four. 12 open tables viewing the ocean! Very rude!

This is one of my favorite spots in Rincón. It happens to be by the beach where l used to bodysurf as a teenager. Great snacks, drinks, views, and service.

This was not my first time here and will not be my last. The location is great. There is also a little boutique out front.

Tamboo was highly recommended by a few people so we decided to check it out. The location is great. Nice breeze and literally right on the beach. Server was really nice and helpful. We ordered a bunch of things off the menu and the food was just ok. We really enjoyed the wings. I could see how this a good... More

We tried Tamboo just for a light lunch and it was okay. Has a beautiful location right on the beach, and nice table lay out. The appetizers we tried weren't overly spectacular but weren't bad. Our waitress really never checked on us after serving us though, so that took away from it a little. Overall not too bad, but not... More

My boyfriend and I came here twice because the first time was so good. The New York steak was to die for (both times) along with the chicken penne. The atmosphere was amazing and the food was literally the best we had in rincon.

The location for Beside the Point Hotel & Tamboo is prime, that's why it's probably the most popular business, but they are not ethical there. I highly recommend using a credit card to pay (open tabs) at the bar Tamboo, keep track of what you drink, and ask for a check before paying. Review it carefully before paying. I've been... More
