“Good lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Nothing fancy, nothing special, just good food at a good price. Great place to grab a cold beer and a fish sandwich for lunch.

“local flava and good brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Three weeks out from our trip, I’m having trouble remembering what we had. I remember it was good, brunchy-breakfasty type fare and that it was the really well priced, good value food. Oddly, when we were there, it was all locals except us, which seemed unusual for a waterfront cafe. Very nice waitress! Big smiles and huge laughs.
Great waterfront location on the main drag in Kralendjik. I enjoyed the Bonaire kids driving by and revving their bikes or playing loud music in their cars. :)

“Very good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

My husband and I visited Rumba Cafe one morning earlier this week and enjoyed a smoothie. I had a great American Breakfast with 2 eggs, bacon and ham. He had a bowl of fruit. Everything was tasty and fresh. The prices are affordable and you get to enjoy watching people since it sits next to the street across from the water.

“Great Food and Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We enjoyed eating dinner at Rumba Cafe. We were walking along the water watching the sunset and just stumbled upon it. The food was really good and the prices were great. The service was excellent. They do not have a happy hour, but the beer prices were good. The atmosphere at the restaurant is really laid back. It is across the street from the water, so there is a good breeze blowing into Rumba Cafe. Seating is outdoors, but they have mosquito spray...use it! They have a good selection of paninis, sandwiches, and various other dishes. Everything we saw them bring out looked good. The special was good and included a large variety of different foods. There is a crowded bar across the street with live entertainment, so you get to hear the music without braving the crowd. When we were done, a staff member called a cab for us. The cab picked us up right in front of the restaurant.
If you are out and about in the town, try out Rumba Cafe. You can't beat the friendly service and good food!

“Great Food, Phenomenal Price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Ok, being of spanish decent and off the coast of South America, of course I was going to find a spanish restaurant. This is is. Its owned by a couple, great food, loved their fish soup.. Excellent portions and traditional south american food, although they have some typical American food. Their prices are excellent, average for my wife and I was around $45 w/o tip. Ate there 4 times during our 1 week stay. 2 lunches and 2 dinners.
