We enjoyed- grouper rueben, fried, grouper, blackened, and jerk grouper. A great variety. The island slaw is delicious too. Our server was great and cheerful. Very crowded and busy place. Outdoor seating available with live music too. A fun and yummy place to eat.

My husband & I searched for a luncheon place recommended on Trip Advisor. Thus wasn't far from our appointment, so we decided to give it a try. We're so glad we did. Seating is indoors or outdoors. Although we usually love sitting outside on a nice day, I wouldn't recommend it. The city & traffic noises don't encourage conversation. Food... More

Great selection of seafood, they also have salads, chicken & burgers. I had the Hogfish sandwich (snapper family), with island Coleslaw & Caribbean black beans. Very good. Nice outdoor seating, I had great service with Shannon at the outdoor bar. Another had the grilled Ahi Tuna nachos, with homemade guacamole. They said they were very good as well. I recommend...

These are not on the menu, but our waitress suggested these as I was wanting shrimp tacos. My oh my, I wanted to hug my waitress, Brittany, for suggesting these for me. One of the best things I ate while in the Clearwater area for the National Championship. Husband had fish tacos. Both came with black beans and coconut rice.... More

We chose this restaurant based on reviews. The food was decent. The portions were not as big as the server made it seem like they would be. We pretty much ate it all at once. We were under the impression that we would have enough to eat there and bring some with us. Didn't work out like that but what... More

Rumba is a great Caribbean place with a large menu! The service was good and I really liked the atmosphere. The pasta with the jerk chicken was killer, and the portion size was more than enough. Definitely mid-range prices.

My sister and I chose this place based on other TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. When we arrived the parking lot was full. Always a good sign for a restaurant. The menu offered a variety of food. We experimented with the Fire Roasted Jalapeños and the Mama Maria Muffins . The waiter promised the peppers were not hot... More
