Consistently Good Food and Drinks

It had been awhile since we dined at Rumba. Their drink prices are great for wines- so don't worry if it is happy hour. The food is consistently good. Today the chicken pasta was very good. Salads are always good. Service was good even though our waitress left for an emergency. Only negative is... read more

Went there for the first time on Sun Jul 12. Sign on locked door said to go to other end of bar for seating. Walked in that door and no one greeted us. Bartender looked at us like we were from another planet. Finally a guy led us to a table. Sat there for 15 minutes being completely ignored. Finally... More

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. Asked for a white sangria and was told that they don't have it. There is red sangria on the drink menu. I asked if they had house white wine and was told yes, but they couldn't make a white sangria. Stopped in on a Friday evening happy hour. Ordered the shrimp rice bowl, but... More

Whenever friend or family visit, we bring them here. The food is great and so are the prices. Staff is friendly and very accommodating.

After trying to find Andy's on the Bay (now a different name and location and just an unimpressive fast food Spanish restaurant), I brought Tripadvisor up on my phone and looked are more reviews for lunch in Oldsmar. I had had my eye on Rumba Island Bar & Grill earlier and decided to drive there from Andy's Spanish Restaurant. I... More

We arrived around 7:00. I wanted the peanut butter, jelly dish. It was not available. I ordered another dish, after about twenty minutes, the waitress came back and said it too was no longer available. I ordered a hamburger. My husband's dinner came out while I had to wait.

Had Sunday lunch. Good choices on menu. Chose fried green tomatoes and Coconut Shrimp. Both were very good. My wife and both had the Seafood Lafitte which had Mahdi, shrimp, crab meat over a bed of rice topped with Bienville sauce and Parmesan. It was very good. Our guest had the Montego Bay half Chicken citrus splash marinade with cranberry... More

We love the food, service and atmosphere at this restaurant, but try to go early due to it's limited parking. If you go at supper time, be sure to wear your walking shoes!

Excellent shrimp quesadilla, rolls, drinks, dinner and conversation! Thanks to our friendly waitress Nevada!! There were some pesky flies due to open air bar area but other than that--all was good! Easy to find, ample parking, friendly staff. We could not hear the live🎤🎶

This is definitely a local Oldsmar crowd, older baby boomer group, and they have a crowd going at all times. They have good 2-for-1 on house wines and beer. Some really solid food selections as well
