“Excellent pork and seafood”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We all had a crazy day and so I was sent to pick up an order at Rumba's. Three of us had pork dishes (two of the pulled pork and one of the soupy kind) and two had the seafood. All were delicious, even when taken home.

The black beans were also great. We decided to add a little of their own hot sauce to the beans and it really made them quite tasty and spicy.

The yucca was good and the yellow rice was just great.

Small, out of the way place, but if you are in the area, be sure to give them a try.

Service was fast on the order and ready when they said it would be.

“The best Cuban food I've ever eaten!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

The people are nice, the service is great, and the food will blow your mind! The seafood paella was out of this world, it's a must try with the Cuban sandwich. Get the Mariquitas and enjoy every minute that you spend in this place.

“Good Cuban Food”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

After seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to give it a try. When we got there it was about 8:30pm the place was full of people, is not a big place. Being use to Cuban food in NJ the food was good not excelent, in my opinion comparing prices to NJ is a bit over price, if you ask for plantains etc..it would run you over $20 per person. In conclusion, I would go back, it beats driving to Miami for Cuban food.

“Passion and Attention to Detail ”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

What an find! Everything from the incredible plantain chips that were paired with perfectly prepared pulled pork covered in a robust cheese sauce and side of homemade garlic sauce for dipping to the flavor explosion we experienced with the Paella created an unforgettable dining experience. Each dish was served so quickly it made me wonder how the chef somehow managed to squeeze so much passion and attention to detail into each and every plate in such a short amount of time. We sat at the bar and the owner Jorge's love for the food and his family, who cooperates Rumba with him, was so evident that it is no wonder that this discreet dining gem is quickly becoming a jewel in the local Cuban community while capturing the attention of folks new to Cuban cuisine and even out of town residents. I even ordered a Cuban sandwich to go so I could enjoy Rumba first thing in the morning. I give this restaurant two thumbs up and I truly wish the best for the smiling faces (Jorge's family) that make the atmosphere and food so unforgettable. Thank you Jorge and we will see you in 3 months to make sure that Rumba is still #1 in Naples.

“Proper Cuban food.”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Had enough of burgers, steaks and pizza? Try this place, great Cuban food, friendly family restaurant. Not elegant, not flashy but excellent Vaca Frita and Lechón. Try the café cubano, the closest you'll get to an espresso in Florida. ( coffee sugar and a shot of rum )
