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 ,

The best part of Rumbas is the atmosphere The minute you walk into the restaurant you feel as if you are on a mini vacation. We... More

Looking for a hopping place and don't mind the wait? This is your place. Duck empanadas are outrageous! Split the rum punch or plan on a taxi.

We arrived for dinner about 445 on a Saturday. It was not too crowded yet. By the time we left at 545 it was filling up. I ordered the salmon dish with spinach and coconut risotto. It was great. Others had a variety of tacos. All very good. I would return when it town again.
