“You will never forget!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

We had fish salad entree with their famous muffins, jerk mahii mahii sauteed vegetables and rum cake. What ever you get it's great. Fun place to eat and you can bring your furbabies with you on the patio..

“good time place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Had dinner there last night and as usual we had an great time. We started with the fish spread and tuna appetizers which were excellent. My wife had the butterflied shrimp and my son and I had the Monk fish specials. Large portions and very inexpensive. Add to that the two for one drinks and the $3.00 wines and it's hard to beat. This is always a great place for casual seafood and a good happy hour.

“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

This restaurant was by far the favorite of mine and my wife's on our honeymoon to Tampa this year. The atmosphere is incredible. We ate there for dinner and they just left all the windows and doors open so while the sun was setting we got an incredible view and the effect it had on the lighting inside was amazing. The food was spectacular. There's not a dish on their menu that I wasn't dying to try. Everything sounded amazing, and the food I did order tasted even better than I was expecting it to. Great restaurant! My wife and I have talked about visiting Clearwater each year simply to be able to eat here again.

“Rumba Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Clean, attractive indoor or outdoor seating. Outdoor seating has big fans going. Staff very sociable. We had lunch, pasta & seafood (shrimp, mussels, fish), excellent! Son had an Island Shrimp Bowl, coconut, cream, rice, shrimp dish, excellent. Drinks were 2'fers all day! Food prep is amazing, and we were intrigued by the small colorful cuts of fruit in our dishes which add to the presentation and flavor of each island dish. Small corn muffins were brought to our table, salad, then our meal, delicious! Loved the great flavors! We plan on going back!
