We visited on a busy Saturday night and had a lovely table outside. Food was ok, not great, service was good.

This is a cute little restaurant on Harbour Island. It has nice outdoor seating if it's a nice day out. I had the Argentinian Shrimp Salad and it was delicious- but at $18 it was a little pricey! Nice selection of mixed drinks as well!

: This café was completely amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed trying a local craft beer matched with a bahn mi style chicken sandwich and yucca fries. It was incredibly delicious!! The service and hospitality was incredible! I cannot wait to return on my next trip to Tampa!!!!

Situated on Harbour Island with a view of the channel in Tampa Bay (including the Amelie arena-home to the Tampa Bay Lightning), Cafe Dufrain has come a long way from its humble beginnings. It's a Percy place for a sun downer and a great place for a meal. The menu isn't too big (which always translates to fresh food), its... More

Hidden in the midst of high end apartments. It's like a tiny village in Italy with a couple restaurants and such. The food is quite eclectic so prepare your taste buds for a delight.

Whilst doing the river walk in Tampa decided to try here for lunch based on TA reviews but must say our experiance wasn't that good. Nice location & friendly server even if she was new at the job ! But our choices of food were disapointing. I choose the kale Caeser salad with chicken but the kale was as tough... More

Stopped by boat to enjoy this wonderful little place and glad we did! We got the burger and a beer special and it was really good! Upgrade to the truffle fries!

Kyle Masson did an excellent job waiting on us and the food as well as cocktails were perfect. If they can make an Old Fashion well which they did, then they must be good!

Went for lunch this week. Nice table arrangement, open air with good weather, not crowded but some people. But, the menu and service disappointed me. Not enough options for me (and I am not picky). I prefer healthy, non-salad, lunch-size and lunch-priced option. I ordered the fresh catch sandwich, replaced the fries with asparagus. Waiter didn't mention the $3 upcharge.... More

This restuarant is on Harbour Island and the parking can be challeneging. The food is pretty good the view is nice on the channel.
