I don't know where to start! Aside from probably making reservations, this was the best place! Fun decor, lively energy and a great view! Its right by Cow Tails, and there is a pirate "boat" that takes you back and forth between the two bars. The setting was just incredible and the food was fast and delicious! Excellent all the...

The locals new about this gem as soon as it opened. a few years ago the new management transformed it from a restaurant owner's Bermuda Triangle to a success. It's on a nice spot just before the Shinnecock canal with a Rum-Bus and water taxi shuttling passengers to/from their sister restaurant Cowfish (higher end place). Food and views are very... More

A great spot , food full of caribbean flavor. The Mampie Mahi was delicious and a wonderful mix of shrimp mahi mahi in a caribbean sauce. My wife enjoyed her Sunset Crab Cake Salad and her Patron Margarita. Our boys loved the Caribbean Wings , a very different take on wings. The Tuna burger was huge and super fresh. Service... More

We came here on a Sunday, after 1pm and it was VERY busy!!! Not a big place but there are tables inside and outside and a pretty big bar. We had a coconut mojito and the rumba margarita... Both were delicious. The margarita was one of the best I've had. Mussels and the double dip were delicious. We had ribs... More

Worth trying to find, this is tucked away and easy to miss. Don't. It has a wonderful view, terrific ambiance, and excellent food. Service was wonderful and the whole experience just makes you not want to leave.

Lovely setting with great water views, a good value and a smart menu that can please everyone. Good French rosé, try the tacos, the salads are great too, and the seared tuna is amazing. Valet your car, order and enjoy the view. Very helpful service.

Tried this place after multiple recommendations. Showed up for drinks and potentially dinner however the place is TINY. We were fortunate to grab some spots at the bar then while we were trying to enjoy our drinks, the younger (20 something) folks plowed in and were jockeying for our seats each time one of us went to restroom, to the...

We started off our Rumba experience with some Rumba punch made special by Freddie the bartender. He is always on top of his customers with great service. For appetizers, we ordered the duck empanadas, seared tuna and the guacamole. All are terrific and are eaten so fast that I could not get a pic, sorry. For dinner, we ordered 5... More

Who doesn't love tacos?! Rumba has the best ones around, with unique flavor combinations... I can never decide which ones to get! My new favorite is the wing sauce one. So good! Anything you get at Rumba, whether it's food or a drink- it never disappoints.
