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.

Kristi always takes care of us at the bar or if we get a table, Jacquiline is excellent. Not your typical Florida Bar/Grill food. Sometimes it is a bit on the spicy side, but they are willing to acommadate your preferences.

We were trying to find a local restaurant on our one night back in Tampa, and settled on this place. The restaurant was not very packed, but it was also 8 pm on a Monday night. We walked in, were seated promptly, and taken care of quickly. The staff were all friendly and happy. The food was quite good; my... More

This my second visit to Rumba and each time I left disappointed. The drinks were way too sweet and the food feel flat. I was hoping for a better seafood meal, but didn't have any luck.

Went to Rumba with a friend. Nice Florida casual dining establishment. We started off with the smoked fish spread that came with crackers. From dinner I had the island bowl with grilled mahi mahi. It was delicious & filling. However I may have gotten filled up before my meal with those wonderful little sweet corn muffins. I'd go back just... More

Site has ample parking both in front and rear. Nice lively full service bar with a few popular beers on tap. Good food selection but most of it is average tasting. Has open air outside bar as well. Better place for drinks than food.

The food here has always been good. I think the ribs are great. Good fish and burgers as well. Happy hour beers are pretty cheap and they usually have live music. It's often packed! Service has been average to below average the past 3 times. I like the food so I go back anyway expecting the service to be so-so.... More
