“Good for lunch or snack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

I got there last weekend, I liked because is just in front of the beach, no walls, so you can feel the joyfull of the place. They prepare a good "nachos" but the chicken they prepared was so salty. They change it, with good manners.

“good food reasonably priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

The bar is right by the beach...we found the the staff were real friendly. They serve good food - we didn't have to wait long to get it and they serve adequate portions....we certainly were not hungry when we were done.

“Rumbas is terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Just ate at Rumbas for the second time this week! There is no comparison with the old Beach Club. New owners/managers are doing wonderful job. Food was very good, drinks were excellent and the service is Outstanding. One waitress is from the Sports Bar where she always offered unparalleled service and friendliness. Other waitress is from Aquasport and she is also most helpful and delightful. We will be back often!

“Good food & pleasant atmosphere on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

We had lunch at Rumbas Beach Club and found the food to be excellent. I had the Cesar Salad and my wife had the Rumbas salad. The service was good and the restaurant was clean and comfortable. We took a walk on the beach after lunch since it was only a few steps away from our table. We hope to go back for dinner sometime. The lunch menu has many selections and we hope dinner will be as good as our lunch.

“Beautiful View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Rumbas, beautiful view of the beach, shore and ocean. The deck is very nice and we had drinks and dinner. The margaritas are the best we have ever had as they make their own mix and use top shelf tequila. The food however was only good. The shrimp and lobster both were dry and slightly over cooked for our taste. It would have been nice to have some butter or garlic butter melted for dipping. My potatoes were over cooked but the taste of our meals were savory. On another note, the owner and manager were on hand to welcome us and share their restaurant plans. The service was 5 star as we were treated with outstanding table service. The servers speak both Spanish and English and were eager to please but not over bearing. Another ourstanding item to mention is there immaculate bathrooms. Cleanest bathrooms in Hermosa. I do recommend the restaurant and I look forward to returning, but will order different food items other than seafood.
