Ulele..(pronounced you-lay-lee) celebrates the vibrant fusion of ingredients from Florida waters and land once home to many Native Americans, including the legendary young princess Ulele.
Located on the Hillsborough River in Tampa Heights, 400 yards from the Straz Center for the Performing Arts. Indoor and outdoor waterfront dining. Lunch & dinner daily. Closed Thanksgiving & Christmas.
Featuring intricately flavored, visually appealing dishes prepared on our 10′ round barbacoa grill.
Ulele operates in the lovingly re-imagined 1903 Tampa Heights Water Works building, which also includes its Ulele Spring Brewery to provide a number of craft beers on tap. Next door to Water Works Park.

The airport location is merely a satellite location and a welcome addition to Tampa’s Southwest Terminal.
Fresh Grouper Sandwich
The airport location has a very limited menu but seems to have something for everyone.
The primary restaurant opened in August 2014, and sits on the banks of the Hillsborough River in Tampa next to the Spring.. It is adjacent to the Water Works Park, which has been transformed into a family-friendly park.
Ulele is a native-inspired restaurant and brewery, using fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and other proteins from Florida when they are available, just as my ancestors did.
Their food is harvested and raised in the United States, preferably from family-owned and independent companies. Their organic food is not genetically modified, and has no hormones and antibiotics. The wines are from the U.S.: California, Oregon, Washington and emerging areas, such as New Mexico, Virginia, New York, Texas and several other states.
Local craft beers, available only at Ulele, made on site by our Brewmaster Tim Shackton.
Part of The Columbia Restaurant Group, the eatery and park has reenergized and built renewed pride in Tampa Heights.
