Food is great, especially the rice bowls....filled with shrimp and I order the jerk chicken with it. The spices are terrific, the chicken and shrimp portions are humongous.....a really big satisfying meal.

The inside restaurant has fine seating for a quiet date night out. However the inside bar and high-tops are great for a couple up to a crowd of 15. The bar then extends to the outside where it is also surrounded by outdoor furniture. I thought this had it all but there's more. Halfway decent single musicians and band-in-box helps... More

Spicy food offering were not indicated on the menu. Mediocre service. Noisy atmosphere. Expensive for little that we ordered.

Visting Oldsmar area due to family business. We were seeking good food, peace and quiet and and a non-chain restaurant. We found exactly what we were seeking at Rumba Island in Oldsmar. Really enjoyed the beef and shrimp kabobs with black beans and rice. Beer was icy cold, too! Service was perfect, attentive without being bothersome. Try this place out,... More

The menu here was incredible, very different and exotic which is a great change from the ordinary. The food was excellent - We ordered from the special lunch menu and the portions were still very big. The ribs were great and also the coconut rice, which is cooked in coconut milk. The crab mac and cheese was superb! The service... More

We have been meaning to try this place because it was close and had good reviews. Had lunch there on a rainy Friday. Not impressed. Consider that this place is named Island Bar & Grill. It is mostly a bar that serves food. The bar square footage is as big or bigger than the food portion. The food tends to... More

Rumba was a well lit , welcoming restaurant , filled with people enjoying themselves. The menu had a variety of food items, which should appeal to a variety of tastes. The service was excellent and the manager came by the table to check on us. Can't wait to go again!

Sweet little muffins were a great start. We ordered off the early bird menu. Everything else barely hit 3 stars. The coleslaw was very sugary sweet with an odd fruit favor undertone. I had the pulled pork. It looked ok except for the super sugary ketchup poured over the top. It had a fruit undertone as well. Not good. Portions... More

I really love the sit up and atmosphere. I took my assistant here after a rather long and arduous Friday. Our server, Aida, was very warm and personable. She made me glad I stopped here on Gulf to Bay. We order oysters and Ahi Tuna nacho appetizers. Both were excellent. My assistant has a draft and I had a rum... More

I've been here before for lunch with friends and enjoyed the food so decided to go back with my husband for dinner. The atmosphere is a mix of family friendly and bar depending upon where you sit. The seating is comfortable and not crowded at all. I love the different takes on mango/pineapple and other fruit flavors in the meals.... More
