Being ranked #1 we expected a great meal. What we got so far exceeded expectations I don't even know where to begin. My wife and I consider ourselves to be amateur foodies and like to try new places. Rumbas was extraordinary in every way imaginable. Even though they were busy the staff took the time to chat with us, explain... More

Thanks to Tripadvisor we found this place. After a warm welcome and offers of help with the menu if needed ( we didn't... All was well described), we were furnished with great quality food.

I'm not Cuban, nor have I ever been to Cuba, so I can't tell you if it tastes like authentic Cuban food, but I can tell you this restaurant has amazing food! It is so flavorful & exactly what I would expect authentic Cuban food to taste like. The prices weren't cheap, but it wasn't exhorbitantly priced either. We were... More

As this is rated no 1 of over 800 restaurant in Naples, four of us went for dinner. We have been to numerous restaurants over the years in Naples this is by far the worst. I just don't get it. 1) The food is ordinary,My son had a paella $35 not cheap, quite clearly produced earlier in the day as... More

We saw so many good reviews of this café we decided to try it for lunch. The wait staff are so friendly, helpful and fast and the lunch menu has some delicious and reasonable dishes. We shared 4 ham croquettes as an appetizer. Perfectly cooked and delicious. My entrée was the roast pork with rice, beans and plantains - a... More

We have been coming to the Naples area for years and I was looking for a new restaurant to try. We are from Indiana and our family had never tried authentic Cuban cuisine. Based upon the reviews, we decided to give in a try and we were thoroughly rewarded. Jorge is the "outside" guy and escaped Cuba at age 15... More

After having been to many restaurants in the area with all types of food and service, Rumba has turned into my favorite restaurant in the Naples area. Being from Miami, cuban cuisine is something that we are used to and familiar with. The food, service and drinks at Rumba were all far and away better than most places back home... More

We tried the Rumba Cuban Cafe based on the many excellent TA reviews. Lacking much experience with Cuban food, we didn't know what to order or expect. The place was very clean, upbeat and inviting. Service staff, albeit at times with broken English, were very friendly and attentive. The menu (http://rumbacubancafe.com) provides Spanish titles but English translations.The beans and rice...

Great food, excellent service. I ordered Tostones, a pitcher of Sangria and a Cuban sandwich. The food was genuine and arrived fairly quickly. The service was perfect. Good value for what we got. We will definitely return.
