This small tapas place delivers a big treat - very good food and excellent service. We love the casual, comfy feel in the dining room. The bar area is very small but we like it if we can snag a seat. There are a couple of tables outside, but they're not preferred. We will often just eat off the tapas... More

Spicy fried chicken was crispy, moist, and tender. Very good! Service was friendly and attentive. Try the black beans with plantains!

Drove to Sequoia NP and had a stopover at Bakersfield Stumbled upon this lovely restaurant A small place with ~8 tables. Nothing but locals. Wasn't full (mid-week). It did state the cuisine is Caribbean, however this is more of a Spanish / Tapas style Portions are generous and prices are fair Corn & Cheese Empanadas were great Fried Calamari (apparently...

We stopped at Bakersfield and we didn't know what to expect but suddenly we find this restaurant. Delicious food, nice environment and kind staff. If you are around BAkersfield go to Mama Roomba it's worth it.

I have eaten at Mama Roomba numerous times. The food is always great and except for one time, the service is usually pretty good. If the owner is there, we ALWAYS get great service. He is very friendly and accommodating. The place itself does not have an air conditioner so dining there in the summer is not the best. It... More

This is a nice place for an intimate or romantic visit. It is a limited menu and the dishes are small. My husband had the fried calamari and I had chicken in a delicious sauce and we both had our own salads. It is not a place that will fill you up but was pleasant anyway.

Went here with a friend for lunch. It took a while for a waitress to come take our order and it was not very packed. There were only a few things to select from the menu. The food was just average and bland. I had hoped it would be more authentic. Probably won't be coming back.

I was invited by friends, knowing I'd grown up in the Caribbean. Our group of 4 was willing to mix and match, so we could try lots of different things. Was thrilled to find every bite was delicious, flavorful, perfectly seasoned. Everything from appetizers to salads to desserts were outstanding. Have been back many times and highly recommend it. They... More

Caribbean fare. Superb food. Small restaurant, but very accommodating. Great beer selection. When the destination is Bakersfield, this is where we dine.
