A word from Tap Tap Restaurant
Known as the "hidden treasure" of South Beach, Tap Tap restaurant showcases vibrant colorful murals and beautifully painted tables and chairs throughout the restaurant. Tap Tap Restaurant serves authentic island cuisine in a space so convincing you couldn't be blamed for thinking you were in the Caribbean.

Begin the night with our signature Mojito cocktail, the perfect blend of sweet and tart, made with Barbancourt Rhum, aged in cognac barrels and voted best in Miami. Then choose from one of our traditional meals such as whole fish in lime sauce, marinated pork chunks, shrimp in coconut sauce or flavorful and tender oxtail to name a few of our popular dish. Finish your meal with a moist upside down pineapple rhum cake, or coconut blanc mange.

    The walls are painted with Haitian murals, even the tables and chairs are painted with images that are strikingly vivid. It is quaint, cozy, and charming. The place has a definite Caribbean atmosphere and it has three dining areas including a sit at the bar area and a small outdoor patio. It is a place that will bring back all your many memories of the Caribbean when it was still smallish and innocent. I loved the food and especially enjoyed the grilled chicken and plantains. The rice was flavorful and scrumptious. There are many great items on the menu. I think I will have the whole fish next time. Several patrons had it and it looked beautifully served, but as important, they said it was delicious and tasty. The service was second to none. We never had spend even a second looking for a waiter when we needed another napkin, a beer, a wine or more bread. The food came on a timely basis. We loved it and will go back very soon again. What a wonderful find. Mostly local diners were there yet it is only a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of the Ocean Drive tourists. Definitely unspoiled and quite the find.

    We were a large group (10), and made reservations for my 40th Bday dinner. The food was delicious, and the service was incredible. Our server was so friendly, and made my special night out truly wonderful. Everyone in our party loved their meals, and the appetizer sampler and the fried goat was to die for! I will come back on my next trip to Miami - for sure!!!

    The food is great - I wanted something off the menu and the chef was nice enough to make it but the service was horrible. One person helping the entire restaurant. She seemed a bit annoyed but that's not the customer's fault. Speak to your boss about that.

    The food was very good (although some of the fried items were a little dry, in my opinion), and portions were large. The atmosphere was colorful. We sat on the front porch. The traffic was a little loud, and the tables were incredibly sticky, which was gross. My main gripe is with the restaurant's service. The man waiting on the outdoor tables was also in charge of the bar. Towards the beginning of the evening, this was fine, as the bar was empty. But as the night went on and the bar filled up, he came out less and less. Every time I looked inside, he was shaking a drink. On one occasion we had empty glasses for at least twenty minutes before I finally got up myself and went inside to request more water.

    As a Haitian american I can say the food was good, but no to die for. The colorful walls remind me of Haiti. We received our food extremely quick, however the drinks that we ordered at the same time we ordered the food came towards the end of the meal. Waitress did not check on us as she would have found out the drinks were missing. She told us she would take of the drinks but didn't so we payed the entire bill and didn't mention it. Tis although there was only 2 of us was automatically included. The busser was actually very attentive and a great help. My girlfriend and I are super foodies and rarely go to the same place twice unless they are very good, this place although good does not warrant a second visit from us.
