Great Service with Good Prices

Stopped by and was impressed by service. I say this because I was being helped by a new employee in training. He and his mentor did not miss a beat. The food was good as I had a great fish sandwich. Would recommend.

Shrimp was their top special on their board, it was 5:30 on Saturday early evening and they were out of it. We were a group of six meeting early as we had tickets to a show. Our feeling if they are out of shrimp at 5:30 someone wasn't doing their job correctly. The server seemed high? We had to ask... More

There were four of us that dined on March 7. Three of the group have been many times, I have only been this once. Atmosphere was good. We didn't have the chance to sit at the outside bar and enjoy a cocktail, but would love to next time, looked cozy. I had the Salmon Ocho Rios, which was very good,... More

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 the server and we were asked to...

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...
