We ate outside on the patio and enjoyed fried green tomatoes, shrimp bisque and crispy hogfish with sides of coconut rice and sauteed greens. There was live music to give an island feel and the prices were right. The drinks were two for one -- fresh margaritas (not a mix) but weak. The mini muffins were yummy. We were too... More

Very nice place and full of what seemed like local people, mixed in with some non-local people. We sat at the bar outside while most people sat at tables outside. They have a large patio and a large bar and seating inside too. Our service was attentive and prompt. We started with smoked/grilled jerk wings which came with two dipping... More

Breakfast had been at 8 am, so at 2:30 pm, we were starved. I Googled seafood restaurants near us, and Rumba was on the list with plenty of good... More

My Girlfriend and I went here for dinner and we have a very enjoyable night out. We were looking for some good drinks and dinner, I wanted fresh grouper, and Rumba came through on both. Staff was great and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed it so much that we went back the next night to get some drinks... More

We hit Rumbas about 5 pm and with a larger group, it was good that we had made reservations so we could sit outside.

We enjoyed the corn bread/jalepeno muffins they... More

Start with a Rum Libations 2 for 1 and very good. I had the hogfish crispy with a ginger sauce delicious. Add a side of black beans and hand cut fries it was an excellent Saturday afternoon meal
