Popular Cuban Restaurant

Now with 2 locations Rumba Cubana still you find a long wait time. The shredded beef and the fried whole snapper should make the wait worthwhile - don't forget to enjoy the sangria.

This restaurant serves traditional Cuban food at very reasonable prices. We knew the portions are on the small side so we ordered plenty of appetizers first and sangria. The black beans with white rice and shrimp in garlic sauce were totally delicious. They moved to this larger space in 2014 but still gets a bit crowded on weekends and it... More

Rumba has it all-ambiance which feels as if you're vacationing in Havana and fresh perfectly seasoned Cuban fare. There is a varied menu for all tastes. The "Ropa vieja" is excellent, not overly seasoned as you often find in Cuban restaurants. The prices are extremely reasonable and the wait staff attentive and helpful. The parking lot does fill up quickly... More

Good old fashioned food Cuban/Central American style! Many people probably won't like what I had, tripe soup followed by goat stew!!! Don't knock it 'till you've tasted it though, because it was fantastic, but, maybe the bottle of wine I had as an accompaniment helped!!! (they don't sell liquor, but you can take your own.) I also can tiramisu for... More

My niece, nephew and his wife took us out to eat during a recent visit to New York. They all raved about this place, so we headed over for some Cuban food. We had a host of appetizers; the chicken empanadas were fabulous; the fish was light and fresh; the corn fritters excellent, but their salsa is something special. Salsa... More

Well what else is there when the food is great and the Sangria is just as good. The place is awesome. Even though me and a friend did not try any entre, we did manage to polish off several appetizers, lol. Since this was the first time that I had been there, I was skeptical about how they made their... More

Restaurant on Boulevard East and 70th Street is very lively. Great latin music playing in background. Always been crowded when I've gone in Spring and Summer months. Had to seat at the bar and bar tables so not to have to wait for regular table. Food is good and drinks are great too. Can't beat the prices. Excellent....reasonable. A fun... More

Rumba Cubana is an institution in the area - the food is great, the ambience is fun, and the prices are staggeringly low! I've been bringing friends here for years, and they are always amazed by the combination of quality and low cost - and since Cuban families show up with grandma to eat grandma's food, you know it has...
