Been wanting to try this place since it opened but never made it. Not that I haven't tried but it's a bit daunting trying to get near the place. They have a very small parking lot and even with the valets getting in is not easy. Once you do get in its all good. The food is excellent as are... More

Fun and great atmosphere, but get here early! Even on a Tuesday night, this place was packed! Cute spot on the bay - try to get a table outside. We went for happy hour and decided to order food. We were lucky we had a table (outside) and were able to keep it to stay for dinner. If you want... More

The location is on the shore. The valet parking is needed to get all cars fit into the minimal parking lot. We got a prime table, by arriving 3 min before opening on a workday. 30 min later all tables were occupied! Good thing we had called in a reservation. The Ribeye, Tacos and Scallop salad were all delicious. The... More

A family favorite! On a summer night a biggie (large mason jar) with rum punch or sangria begins my journey to the islands. An appetizer of ribs that fall off the bone followed by jerk chicken dinner served with a hard to resist coconut risotto makes me blissful. The key lime pie is awesome. Best outside of Blonde Giraffe in... More

This restaurant in the Hamptons Bays was a happenstance. Last minute turn around to go for one of the best dinners in the Bay's. Although packed, don't be disappointed, the valet will pack your car and once you check in and request a table you can take a cruise courtesy of the restaurant while you wait and they will call...

The food, especially the ribs (best we've ever had), mango guacamole w/ homemade tortilla chips, steak, crab cakes, shrimp & Mahi Mahi. The kids loved the bendable sticks, the Reggae music, being near the water, and great photo op before even entering the door. The parking lot was full but the attendant squeezed us in. Rum selection is impressive and... More

Whilst on a trip to NYC (from Greece) with friends we decided to drive down Hampton Bays. After searching on TripAdvisor Rumba seemed like a good choice to get some lunch. Indeed it was. Beautiful setting, great friendly service and gorgeous tasty Caribean food. Definitely worth going.

Shrimp tacos and mojitos! Dominican ribs! Small but bold atmosphere. Great scenery. Visited there 2 days in a row for the shrimp taco. Do not miss it!
