“Best Cuban Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

If you are tired of the chain food scene and would like to try authentic Cuban food this is the place. Inexpensive and tasty, a combination that can't be beat. Our favorite place to take out of town guest to sample something not readily available up north.

The waiters and waitresses are friendly and knowledgeable. You won't be disappointed!

“Best of the Best for Cuban Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

A get away for my husband and I in Naples began with lunch at Rumbas. The place is very clean, with beautiful large colorful pictures of people and scences of Cuba.They made me happy to look at them! :)
We were greeted at the door with a big smile by Jorge!
We order a pulled pork and plantain appetizer that was wonderful. The pork was so tender and tasty. The plantains were crispy and so good.
I had the half Cuban Sandwich with beans and rice. One of the best I have every had. We also ordered wings which were served with the most amazing sauces. ( We ordered the wings with sauce on the side because we like wings cooked "dry"!. )Yummy! Jorge is one of the owners and seems to love being in his restaurant ! We had a good time talking about Cuba and his story of coming to this country. Love this place!! The decor is nice and colorful. You must go there if you are anywhere close!
You will be happy you did!

“Top notch, and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Quite a way out of the norm with regard to restaurants in naples, but well worth the trip. We were away on a girls weekend, and a rainy afternoon turned into a great reason to try out a new restaurant. From the moment we stepped in the door, it was smiling faces and great service. We ordered a pitcher of white sangria, and it was divine, as well as pulled pork and palomilla steak with tostines. We also had the fried yucca and mojo sauce!
Great atmosphere, and quite reasonably priced. Don't let the little strip mall location fool you......if you like Cuban food at all, this is a place that must be on your list.

“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Good authentic Cuban Food set in a Tropical and friendly environment.

I was surprised that "my favorite Cuban joint in the Naples Airport" changed management. The cook is still there and the floor service is better.

The server recommended the pork lunch specials, but I chickened out, pun intended, to a Tropical Grilled Chicken with Tostones. I felt at home!

Judging by the patronage- it was packed, the good food keeps coming. Salud!

“Best of Naples!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is our 2nd time in 2 days. Service is awesome and staff extremely friendly. Everything on the menu is appealing a d the taste is fabulous. Price very reasonable. Do not leave Naples without trying. 5th Avenue in Naples cannot compete with place. This restaurant will be here for a long time. CHEERS to the owner!
