8 Restaurants with the Best Views in Tampa

Tampa is lucky to be the type of city where you get the best of both worlds: the city and the water! Although the hardest part isn’t choosing which you’d rather go to, it’s where you want to eat. The city is filled with restaurants spouting gorgeous views, so of course, we had to share some of our favs.

Bulla Gastrobar:

 The Luna Lounge located in South Tampa at Bulla Gastrobar offers tapas and drinks with a view. The Luna Lounge offers first come, first serve seating so make sure you snag a seat early if you want to lounge and enjoy the sunset.

Edge Rooftop Cocktail:

Looking for a light dinner? Check out Edge Rooftop located in the Epicurean Hotel for apps and drinks with a view over Soho.


Ulele, located next to Armature Works, offers an eclectic menu and overlooks the Hillsborough River. With a large green lawn out front, Ulele also offers outdoor seating next to a manatee watch area.


Oystercatchers located at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay offers a panoramic view of Tampa Bay and is the perfect place to eat dinner and enjoy the sunset. At Oystercatchers you can find a dock leading out to the ocean which is famously known as a popular proposal spot. They also have a pretty sweet bottomless brunch deal.

Jackson’s Bistro:

Jackson’s Bistro located on Harbour Island offers beautiful waterfront views surrounding downtown Tampa. With covered patio seating, it is the perfect place to eat dinner even on rainy summer afternoons.

Spinner Rooftop Revolving Bistro & Lounge:  

This is by far the most interesting restaurant on St. Petersburg Beach! Spinners is the only revolving restaurant on the West Coast of Florida that offers a 360 view of the coast.

Salt Shack on the Bay:

Salt Shack on the Bay is a recently opened restaurant located near Gandy Boulevard with great beach house vibes. This restaurant sits right on the water and even has its own little beach! 


M.Bird is located above one of my favorite places in Tampa, Armature Works! The deco-inspired lounge has great waterfront views, tropical cocktails and small plates.
