My wife and I arrived for a late lunch (1:45PM) between Christmas and New Years. Apalach was bustling, hence the idea for a late lunch. We spend a good deal of time and the area, but had never eaten at Tamara's. Overall it was good and we will return. Tables were less than 1/2 occupied. We got a quick seating... More

I have been a professional restaurant reviewer (meaning no freebies, ever) and also have worked in both front and back of the house, so I know that when you come into a lively place almost an hour after the breakfast menu has been replaced by lunch, it's not at all simple for the kitchen to accommodate your request for eggs...

We had dinner at Tamara's because we saw they had paella on the menu. We were not disappointed. The seafood was fresh and the did was well seasoned. We also had fried oysters as an appetizer. They were excellent. We will return to this restaurant when we visit Apalachicola next.

From the moment I walked in, the friendliness of the staff and open atmosphere made me feel welcomed. After a day of traveling I was happy to find this place. I ordered the flounder tacos with a side order of chips and salsa. After eating one taco which was excellent, I decided to try the pork tacos as well, these... More

Tamara's is amazing. We had fresh caught grouper and snapper, and they cooked it for us and served sides for $15 per person. They grilled the grouper and friend the snapper in a ground pecan batter. Might be the best dinner I have ever had in a restaurant. So good that we came back the next day and bought side... More

He explained the poison in the lion fish spines where neutralized when cooked. It was moist and lightly seasoned. My wife ordered the Lion fish and I had blackened Grouper... More

We went here after dinner for drinks and the music. The band was really great. We were visiting with friends and we had a really great time.
