We love this restaurant! It's probably best suited for adults but we came with young children and they were super happy to accomodate us. Their food is outstanding, the menu is unique & excellent, as are their drinks list & service. Love it!

I have visited la Rumbla many times since it opened it. I enjoy the food, the service, the cocktails, the ambiance. All their dishes are carefully spiced and nicely presented. They change the menu from time to time but everything is delicious. Highly recommend it....More

Yummy, as usual. I love that they have gf options or can make gf options. Same with dairy free. Our dinner was yummy, service was amazing and my food issues, weren’t an issue! Thank you. And the honey cocktail was the bomb!

Greeted by a very professional young man who directed us to a table - even though we had not made a reservation. Lovely tapas offerings with some very good wines. Only downside was the female wait person who referred to us as " my dears"...More
