If you want to learn some salsa steps without feeling like a total idiot.. Mama Rumba is the place. Its filled with charming gentlemen always eager to dance in the most respectful manner. Also if your not into that is great to sit back with a mojito and watch the couples burn up the dance floor.. there were really some... More

It's a great spot; good drinks selection, salsa music, and most importantly, atmosphere! I would definitely go there again! The small negative point; it was 100 pesos for entry, and the drinks weren't very cheap. It was 50 pesos a Modelo Negro in there... Though, frankly, we were so hooked on the dancing that we hardly drank anything!!

Lively club with great music and if you can find space in the crowded floor you can dance with some well practiced salsa dancers. Entry fee is OK and the drink prices from the bar are fair, ordering drinks from the roving waiters is very expensive and they don't bring your change so stick to ordering at the bar.. Good... More

Great live music, free salsa lessons and very good mojitos. It is a must if you are a salsa dancer or if you are just curious and would like to try some new steps.

Mama Rumba is a place that has a live group from wednesday to saturday's nights. The group plays the miscalled Cuban Salsa, which is actually called Timba in Cuba, not Salsa, it is different from the true Salsa from Puerto Rico, New York and Colombia (that is, artists like Héctor Lavoe, Willie Colón, Rubén Blades, Frankie Ruiz, Joe Arroy, Gilberto...

Great place with great music, drinks and food. This place feels really authentic, not like the one places that don't know their deal. Food is O.K. for a bar, music is always great.

Cuban food is not so impressive but the entertainment venue is excellent! I was there for a late night dinner and everything came out a little dry and over cooked, nothing like any good Cuban food I would expect in Miami. As the night goes on, the music, the dance, the people all came together. I love Salsa music and... More

They had a great live band, but overall the place is pretty cramped for dancing. They still make it work though, including pockets of folks dancing in the aisles and wherever they can squeeze in. The band started about 11p and was still going strong at 3am. I'd go back to Mama Rumba, but would also be game to find... More

I went to this place for the first time on Saturday after having passed it for years. The live Cuban dance music and the reasonably priced "botanas" or "finger food" are alright ... But if you don't like dancing (like me) then this place probably is not for you ... and the place was so crowded that even if you... More
