They only give enough food to feed a 9 year old (who ironically wanted more food himself). The food quality was excellent! I ordered the Griyo and rice and it was amazing! True authentic Haitian quality. The prices were pretty high for the small quantities.

Visited a few weeks age. Service was slightly slow but the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Happy to describe the dishes and make recommendations. Food was good and a lot of it. Would definitely go back the ceviche was amazing.

The atmosphere transported me to Haiti. The Lambi and Haitian mohito were fantastic! The colorful artwork and tables added to the ambience. The service was good. I always make this a stop when I'm in Miami.

I have been going to Tap Tap since 1999, but my most recent visit over the memorial weekend was the worst ever, and we won't be back until new management is in place. The food was subpar, the watercress dressing tasted as though they ran...More

Excellent. Cultural art decor. Menu with variety but stays within the Haitian palate. Our family had goat, vegetarian, fish, shrimp, and pork. Everything was just as delicious as the next. Prices are great for South beach. Happy Happy Day!

From time to time, when they are in stock, they do. If you want prestige call them to ask and if they have it in stock, to hold you some bottles.
