“Absolutely terrible”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Visited on a Saturday night with friends using a groupon voucher,had a table booked for 8.30, on arrival we were told that we were six minutes early and taken to a seating area where we were given menus and ordered our drinks. After about 10 minutes we were shown to our table and had to ask where our drinks were. Our drinks evenutally arrived and we ordered our food, the starters were really slow in arriving and by 10.15 we had still not had our main courses despite asking a number of times when they would arrive. The final time we asked if we would receive our meals today the waiter replied maybe tomorrow which was his idea of a joke but we didn't find very amusing. There were numerous people who came in after us and had been served their meals and the restaurant was nearly empty when we finally had to just get up and walk out. I tend to think it was because we were there with a groupon voucher that they didn't see serving us as a priority. Really disappointing and would never visit again.

“Nine of us for birthday meal”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

I've been vegetarian for 41 years and had so many disappointing meals out. However, the vege enchiladas at Bar Rumba were absolutely delicious. The others had various choices and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Prices very reasonable even without a Groupon. I will certainly be going back there.

“Rather surprised.”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

I was rather weary about my visit as my daughter said the reviews weren't all that amazing, however I was quite surprised. Service was rather slow but that didn't bother me or the people who came with me as we were enjoying and tasking advantage of having time just to chill n relax. The house wine was very nice. The starters- garlic bread, potato skins, salsa and the bruschetta were eaten n enjoyed! The mains- pollo zaffron, pollo Milanese, chicken fajitas and 2 lots of chicken enchiladas were all eaten and enjoyed. In all a very pleasant evening but remember the service may be rather slow.

“muy sabraso!”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Visited the restaurant with friends for a casual early evening meal. Food was plentiful, well prepared, hot and tasty. Its also excellent value with the evening/happy hour discount. Atmosphere was alittle lacking, mainly because there were only one or two other tables occupied. Service was a little slow considering the restaurant was not that busy, but overall a good experience and it was a pleasant change from Chinese/Pizza.Indian food.
Will dine here again.
