Great spot in Rincon! Tamboo is a really cool beachside restaurant/bar in Sandy Beach. We stayed for a week nearby at Casa Verde, and Tamboo was right across the street, so we went a couple of times (lunch, dinner, drinks). We really enjoyed it every single time. The food was excellent, which exceeded our expectations. However, the main attraction here is the location and the view, which is amazing. The atmosphere is great as well, there were live bands most of the time and the people were very friendly, Highly recommended!

Arrived at 7:00 pm on a Monday evening. We were not immediately greeted but eventually someone asked how many and we requested to set on the upper deck. The waiter that greeted us so to go ahead up and chose a table. There were only two other tables maybe a total of ten people there but it took almost twenty minutes for someone to speak to us. We finally were able to get some drinks and order some food which arrived at 8:30 and hour and a half after we arrived. Bottom line is the food was good but it was not worth the wait especially with less than thirty people in the whole restaurant!

The food was good , my wife and I had the Yellow fin Tuna sandwich, the service was friendly and the view from the deck was great.
You can ask the waitress for some binoculars to look out into the ocean.

We were in Rincon for 10 days for a sandwich-style family vacation (my husband and I, plus our 2 children and their grandparents), and had several opportunities to visit Tamboo for lunch, afternoon refreshments and dinner too. Each time we stopped, we were greeted and treated so warmly by the staff. Not only was their team welcoming, they were very attentive and patient with our somewhat high-maintenance group.
The location is fabulous, right on the surf, so lots to see in the morning and afternoon, and the sunset views are fantastic.
The food is good - the menu has a lot of variety and I was impressed how fresh everything was. One day we saw the fresh tuna being hauled to the kitchen in the fisherman's arms (skewers with coconut rice); the next, mahi mahi, (which was used in a fantastic ceviche).
Considering the view, the staff, and the quality if food and drinks, I found the prices to be completely reasonable.
I'm surprised to see less favorable reviews than ours - we have 4 data points - each very positive.
