Guiding us from good scores at Tambo, we arrived at 3.45 PM to eat famous fish dishes and seafood. I was greeted by a very disturbed (by our presence) waitress who informed us that they have nothing to eat :)) given that the restaurant is over the ocean. Definitely was a bad choice (from us) this restaurant highly praised.

Tambo is a lovely restaurant located on the sea front. We were shown the menu, which consists of the days catches on a chalk board. The food was simple, but quite frankly, delicious. Possibly, the best sea food restaurant that I have visited. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle and extremely peaceful.

Been there twice this holiday, food is amazing simply cooked great fish. You get a choice of what ever fish they have on the blackboard. I would advise booking as there are only Two people working and one sit a limited number of guests a night.

We had a sea food platter of prawns, mussels, two types of white fish, octopus and more - all to die for - and served by an excellent well informed waitress. Add a good value bottle of wine. Superb evening.

When I was laying on the Jardin beach, I thought about visiting of a restaurant in front of the ocean. However I decided and went, I wanted to try a bonito fish. Very beautiful seniora (waitress or a chef, I don't know) said the wonderful phrase when I asked when would a bonito. Her answer I very liked, "Sea knows".... More

And served with great style and attention to detail in a wonderful location with a great view. The selection will depend on what the local fishermen have caught and what is in season unless you have booked ahead and discussed what might be available. On Saturday we had fresh burro split and simply cooked in oil and garlic with salad... More

We went to Tambo for lunch. The location is absolutely incredible, right on the rocks and out on a headland. It's not easy to find or find a parking space but well worth the trouble. Octopus was lovely and very cheap and the seafood spaghetti was excellent too.
