“Great outdoor seafood restaurant”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

While the restaurant is not on the water, it has great outdoor seating allowing you to enjoy the super Florida weather. The food is very good and the prices reasonable. This restaurant has become a popular "local" hangout for the Clearwater/Largo residents because of the atmosphere and prices!

For those visiting and looking for a great experience - give Rumbas a try!

“Take out was a bust”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

I had a friend in town and we wanted to try a local place for takeout. the place was very nice very great decor in atmosphere, seemed to have an older crowd. We picked up our take out and the food was not all that great. For three and a child it came to $50. Not worth the portions or quality. They ran out of mai mai sbd substituted it for grouper. We did not recieve our frys either. The containers were nice but we will not do take out again.

“Amazingly nice ambiance on a busy street.”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

These guys have taken a small space, shut out the noisy world, and carved out a deceptively spacious bit of island life. Live music (wonderful background volume) outside, wonderful food presentation, and comfortable tables. A definite re-visit.

“Mediocre a second time”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

I visited this restaurant a year ago and then again tonight. Nice enough atmosphere and service was good. But food is overly sugared. There was sugar in everything but the steamed vegetables. The green vegies were water-soaked and tasteless, root vegies were OK. Sweet potatoes were sugared. Chicken was unremarkable, sugary topping with peppers. No pride in the food itself. Salad was bland, iceberg lettuce and an overly sweet dressing. I thought the second time that maybe I should give it another chance. I should have given it a miss. The outdoor seating is OK but this is one of the busiest intersections in town.
