We frequent Rumba a lot. Always great food and service. The shrimp bowl (with bbq salmon) and grilled wings are my favorites. 2-4-1 drinks all day!

Early specials make this a reasonable place to eat. Good food and atmosphere. Kid friendly too. Favorite meal was rice bowls with added fish. Delicious!

It was very windy the day we visited so we ate inside. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere is modern and comfortable. Our food was very good and service was excellent. I would imagine the outside bar would be very busy when the weather is nice.

Tonight, 03/12/2017, after a late afternoon movie, my friend and I went to dinner at Rumba Island Bar & Grill in Oldsmar, arriving at around 6:30pm. We noticed patrons eating both inside and out, people sitting at the outside bar, and live musical entertainment-one man with a guitar and speaker (outside).The establishment appeared half-full, or more. The weather was pleasant,... More

After we were seated it took 15 mins, for anyone to actually say hello and introduce themselves as our server. Busboy shortly after ordering food came with salad, we were never asked for dressing and told him I don't think we ordered it. He asked did we order dinner entry, after I replied by telling him what we ordered he... More

Stopped for a late lunch or early dinner. Good assortment of local craft beers. Coca nut shrimp was good. Not many choices for vegan or vegetarian diets. Good service and nice outdoor seating area.

I had to write, as I just had 2 great meals in one day today. We started out with a bridal shower for my daughter's upcoming wedding. With 22 women, we took over their party room. We shared several salads, coconut shrimp, calamari and quesadillas. Everything was fresh, tasty and enjoyed by all. Our staff helpers were Sarah and Barry... More

We pulled into their parking lot just as a tour bus load of people were entering the restaurant. Did not slow our being seating at all. The cafe has plenty of comfortable seating. We were served drinks quickly, and our food came quickly also. This is a place you want to be slow. Great place to chill.
