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.

Have been there before for lunch and enjoyed it then. This time I brought out-of-town guests for dinner and was disappointed and embarrassed. Food was not hot. Water glasses not refilled. Noise level made conversation almost impossible. Very disappointed.

This is a fabulous place - people- friendly- food- delicious- music- sensational. Loved everything about this place. The unassuming restaurant is decorated with beautiful Haitian art - much of it painted by Rara Kuyu who also plays in the band. Drinks are delicious - you kinda have to try them all... Haitian Rhum Punch, Mojito, and Karen's own version of Barbancourt /Bailey's like liqueur. Really - can't say enough about the people- service- food - music- and vibe. Note: live music Thursday and Saturday.

The restaurant is really a testament to Haitian folk painting and metal art. Every surface is adorned with wonderful images in bright colors. The Haitian Soley and Mojito were delicious. The food was not quite as expected - my daughter lived in Haiti for some time and ordered for us. The Mango salad was advertised with watercress but had no watercress (lots of romaine instead). The conch was quite spicy and ceviche style. The goat stew was tender with good rice and black beans. The mayi moulen was not good - sort of like refried beans instead of polenta. The portions were large and not expensive - there were many groups there enjoying an evening in this creative space.

A great place to be introduced to Haitian food. The place feels totally authentic, casual and unpretentious, and is all about the honest, homestyle Haitian food on the plate. Come here if you want something filling and flavorful without any fussiness. There's live music there occasionally.

Great food! We went late so they were out of a few items but our server was quick to recommend something equivalently delicious.

As others have commented the service here is beyond bad. It took 30 minutes to get a drink order after countless requests, food took over 1.5 hours on slow Monday night. Food is decent but expensive along with the gratuity included in the check. They include it to prevent being stiffed as the service deserves $0.00 tip.
