Always fun!

Rumba is a fun and festive place to have drinks with friends and family. If you go with family, I would suggest going early so the crowds are not stacked double at the bar. But the food has a Caribbean vibe and the drinks are delicious!

Very cool place with great simple food and excellent service. The location is nice too, right on the bay. We ordered crab cakes and fish tacos which were both excellent. The crab cakes had a lot of crab and were tasty. The fish tacos were great too - fresh fish and well seasoned cole slaw. Only area of improvement could... More

I had dinner at Rumba today. The food was excellent and the staff was exceptional. We ordered the duck empanada and the artichoke as an appetizer and they were both delicious. We then ordered the Dominican Ribs and the Mahi Mahi both were superb. The Ribs just feel off the bone and are the house specialty. It was time for... More

The food there is beyond yum, you will not be disappointed no matter what you choose to eat. And as for the drinks, get the rum punch which they have perfected. You can escape a little of the madness of life by relaxing on their deck outside enjoying the view. Cheers!

The food is wonderful. The drinks are even better. I had the best mohitos outside of Cuba. They have a shuttle bus that will pick you up and bring you home, which on eastern Long Island is a lovely thing, It is crowded and noisy and you might have to wait a bit for a table, but this just says...

Atmosphere is great. Food is consistently good. I love the Prickly Pear Margarita, Pulled Rib Taco & Grilled Artichoke. Parking can be dicey - especially in High Season & on weekends

Nice waterfront spot... Gets very crowded. Food is ok. Best for outdoor dining. You need to park down the street and take a shuttle bus. View is great.

My husband and I were sent to this restaurant by our family as a gift. (We rarely eat out.) We had the best rum punch we've every tasted. The coconut risotto was refreshing. The banana rum was very smooth. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. If you decide to try the place out you must ask for Stephanie. Stephanie delivered... More

This place is amazing. Never had a bad dish there, much less a bad meal. Always delicious, innovative food at reasonable prices with great service in a pleasant ambiance with lovely water view by day. Can be hard to talk on busy nights. Lunch is our favorite and we've had dozens of them there.

Great mahi mahi with mashed potato and spinach topped w shrimp and a creole reduction, Great entrees and appetizers in a Caribbean vibe restaurant. Feel like you are in the Caribbean and have some house rum punch. This is great food. I live lucky enough to walk and go often. !!! Good happy hour prices ,
