not a class act

I had dinner at the Oldsmar location Feb 28 (2015); were were a group of 10-12. I thought the food was quite good and reasonably priced. I don't know how to characterize my complaint other than the service lacked class. Some examples: drinks that were ordered were given to the person closest to... read more

I took my parents to the Rumba Island Bar & Grill in Oldsmar for dinner tonight. It was packed and there was a 30 minute wait for a table. However, there were plenty of seats outside, as well as, around the bar (both indoors & outdoors) to sit and enjoy a drink while we waited for our table. It was... More

My wife and I went to Rumba Bar on the recommendation of friends. We went with another couple for lunch. The restaurant was not that busy and we were seated right away. We sat outside as it was a very nice day. Our waitress came promptly and took our order. She did an excellent job the entire meal of looking... More

Enjoyed a casual dinner at Rumbas, good value, friendly staff who immediately spotted an error with our order and rectified it straight away. Two for one cocktails were very good and well priced. Would return.

Having moved to the area recently we are looking for new places to try. We have been here three times in the past 6 months, both for lunch and dinner, and have yet to be disappointed. The food is great, decent prices, friendly staff, good atmosphere.

Great outside deck with good draft prices ($1.69 mug of certain domestics). The mango chicken was amazing. You could taste that it had been in a smoker and was nice and tender. Absolutely delicious. The coconut shrimp as an appetizer was also good and a nice size. Waitress was efficient, not too friendly, but she was otherwise good and timely.... More

I had dinner at Rumba with 4 friends last night, and it was a fantastic experience. Daniel, our server, was very attentive and took excellent care of us. He made recommendations, all of which were great, from the cocktails to the appetizers to our entrees. The calamari was perfectly prepared, the the Rum Libation punch was marvelous, and the Rasta...

Were there as a group. Had the mahi-mahi and it was very good. Our group was over 30 people and the service was very good considering how many people we had.

stopped in while in the Oldsmar area for dinner (7pm) on a Thursday night, the restaurant was busy but not crowded. Selection of high-top tables, booths or bar service and outside seating was available. Menu was a good selection of traditional fare with a Caribbean twist to the offerings. The habanero muffins were more like mini corn muffins and did... More

Stay away from the Cuban sandwich. This is Florida and "The Cuban" is its claim to fame in sandwich choices. This one had no taste and instead of layered ingredients, the filling looked like dog food with some relish. My friend had the coconut shrimp which were ok. Service was acceptable a "C". I was looking forward to trying the... More
