When friends came to visit and wanted to join us for dinner, my wife suggested Rumba as she had eaten at another Rumba location in Oldsmar. Well, she didn't steer us wrong as the dinner was great! It was a nice cool evening, so we were able to sit comfortably outside and my Ahi Tuna was fantastic. Although the restaurant is mostly seafood base (Floribbean?), they also have bar b que and other dishes as well. The service was great and I also recommend the sangria!

Lunch here is great! After taking your order they serve you Mama Maria’s Muffins which are very moist and yummy! We usually order Calypso Calamari island with remoulade sauce. The fish they serve is very fresh. They also have great side orders. Rumba's has an Early Menu which is served 11:30 am to 5:45 pm daily which is a great savings. We usually visit at least once a week.

Visited Rumba from a friends recomendation the other night and WOW what a great place. The food was fresh, light and island like. The mama maria's muffins and drunken shrimp to start were fantastic. My Wife and I had shrimp and rice bowls along with their house salad which seemed incredibly fresh. Island look? Absolutely! The outdoor patio area was a winner as we enjoyed drinks and dinner outdoors close to the Island Bar. This is a very fun place to visit and if you are coming to Tampa, Clearwater or St. Pete, bypass the chains and get over to Rumba for an enjoyable evening.

We were driving through Clearwater after visiting the aquarium and wanted to grab a bite to eat. After consulting TripAdvisor we decided to try Rumba. The restaurant has a large outdoor eating area with a great tropical looking thatched roof bar. We sat outdoors since it was nice. We arrived in time to take advantage of their early bird specials and selected a mixed seafood dish (fish and shellfish with sherry and cheese) and salmon with black beans and rice. Both were very good. Portions were on the small side but enough for a light dinner. The corn muffins were good too. Dinner (from the early bird offerings) for two was around $25.00--not bad.
