I have been to Rumba quite a few times. I always order the Jamaica jerk chicken. The portions for a lunch entree are quite big and it is always very tasty. I definitely recommend this place. I haven't been there for dinner and I believe that it's a little too pricey for me, which is why I go for the... More

I prefer thus location over Clearwater. The fish is fresh. The ahi tuna is the best I've ever had. They have several 2-4-1 drink options all day long. Outdoor and indoor seating also. Most if their menu has a unique Caribbean flair. I recommend coming at least once, the burgers are good too.

This is the second time we have been. Food OK, portions not to big by American standards though, service fine. I had the steak kebabs which were a little chewy, but I would still go back.

We live near this and my office is near the other location and have been to both. Great service and a nice light full flavored Caribbean type menu.

We were looking for something different. And at the advise of a friend we stopped in here. The service was prompt and food was delicious! My bloody Mary was perfect,not too spicy. My husband's seafood was completely consumed and my chicken was so very tender. Prices at lunch were surprisingly reasonable especially given the area. Can't wait to go back!

We have been here about 4 times and food has always been good. Service has always been friendly and prompt. Coconut shrimp is yummy and the Jamaican greens are delicious. 2 for 1 drinks are pretty weak but last night I had the cucumber basil gimlet but had them serve it "up" as a martini and it was phenomenal. We've... More

First time visit and I will definitely be back. We sat outside and even though it was July we were comfortable due to fans that were cooling you off. Ther service was good and the food was very good.

I had Filet with mashed sweet potatoes and sauteed veggies and my husband had a trio of wings, ribs and shrimp plus raw oysters appetizer. Both meals came with a fiesta salad. Hubby had wine and I had iced tea. Food was nice my presented but service was a tad slow. U think Barry was relatively new. $50 before tip.

I've been to the Rumba in Oldsmar five or six times. I have never been disappointed in the food. My favorites are the crab-stuffed Mahi Mahi, onion crusted Salmon, black beans and rice, and the island salad and muffins. The ribs and coconut shrimp are really good, too. We've taken others with us a few times and everyone loved the... More

My family goes often for the consistency and quality we expect and regularly receive. We are big fish lovers and enjoy their varied menu.
