“Good Specials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We ate at Rumba twice for lunch. First time, the special was hamburgers. Only so-so. The second time, the special was Mahi Mahi Milanese. It was very fresh and delicous.

What really stands out for me is the staff. Exceptionally friendly. When our waitress from the first visit encountered us on the street, she greeted us warmly and encouraged us to come back. She was so sweet, we decided to do just that.

I hope they read these reviews at Rumba because I can solve a little mystery. The place mats they use picture an unusual fruit. I figured out it is red, ripe lychee fruit.

This isn't a fancy place, but the waterfront view, relaxed environment and lovely waitress make it very special.

Had a nice gathering with friends there and the service was good, the ambiance very relaxing and cozy. Really enjoyed the no hurried service.

“Wonderful little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We stopped in for lunch, which was perfect. Had a couple of sandwiches and a beer, watched the people pass by and gazed at the water. Perfect location for a quick bite to eat!

“Icy cold beer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Try the Chivito al Plato, it's a delicious Uruguayan treat! Saw a lot of people picking up to go food, so the rest of the menu must be pretty good too!

Nice service, friendly owner and a pretty good cheese steak. Burgers looked good and the beer was cold.
