I love Ulele. It's the place I always take my parents to when they're in town and they love the atmosphere and authentic Florida cuisine! The hush puppies are a must try on their menu.
Pros: Great food, Delicious Drinks!
Cons: Free Parking is a bit of a walk but it's definitely worth it!
I've been to Ulele for a couple of times, it's perfect for friends gathering and family reunion. Food is delicious and they also provide great service, highly recommend for everyone.
Very solid meal at Ulele. Started with the native chili and gave the flank steak a shot. The chili was tasty and the flank steak was perfectly cooked. Star of the table was the crispy fried duck, which I am trying next time.
I have been to Ulele a few times now and have enjoyed it everytime. Delicious food, great space and friendly people. They even have the Pirate Water Taxi that will drop you off right there.
Pros: Food, serice and ambience are all wonderful.
Cons: I don't know if they do events or entertainment bit if they do I wish I would hear about it more.
The food alone is enough to keep me coming back but the atmosphere and environment give you the experience to deem Ulele one of the best restaurants in Tampa. I've went with my family and I've went with my friends and on all occasions I have a great time. The waitress actually gave us a mini tour of the brewery in the backside of the restaurant.
The food was amazing and the service even more so. I recommend getting the seafood risotto because it is really delicious!
The Triple threat! Great food, Great Service, and great place to eat! The Char-broiled oysters are the best!
Fun, hip new restaurant on Tampa's Riverwalk. The food is good but the charbroiled oysters are the best I've ever had. There is ALWAYS a wait but you can eat at the bar too. Eceletic ambiance!
The food, vibe and atmosphere is fantastic!
Pros: Love the fresh seafood dishes, great wine list and super cocktails.
Cons: The real miss here is the lack of music or entertainment on the courtyard. Such a great space for it on the lawn with a great water view. Really wish they hired cool local bands -not jazz bands, but 90s+, or even do a silent disco night!
