My wife and I ate here several times for breakfast during our stay on Bonaire. The breakfast was exactly what I was looking for and delicious, the coffee was very good, and the included cookie with the coffee dunked so nicely. The staff is very friendly and make you feel welcomed. The view right on the water is spectacular, and... More

Very good pizza. Service was very slow almost to the point of wanting to get up and leave. Next time I'll just sit at the bar, if there is a next time.

Friendly staff and quite efficient. Although the Cesar Salad I ordered was nothing special. The prices are very good!

We tried this restaurant in March 2015 : this place is very nice and peaceful, with Cuban style, and close to the sea (a road separates the terrace from the bank). Simple furnitures and decoration. We only tasted the big-size pizza (for 2) which was huge and well stocked, for a quite reasonable price (18$). And you can obtain your... More

This is a great little cafe. Right across the street from Carl's Beach Bar. Great view of the ocean and really good food at a very reasonable price. This is our goto place when we don't want to cook ourselves.

As you'll notice in Bonaire, food is expensive and service is slow. Not here. Rumba runs a top notch operation and there a lot of food options. I came here almost everyday during my 3 weeks in Bonaire diving. Why: 1) They have tap beer (heineken) so you can get big mugs 2) Pizza is great, 2 people can share... More

Meal was decent, no complaints but it won't make the list of must eats on the return.friendly staff but they said that they hadn't eaten much of the menu and didn't have any suggestions on what they liked there which was odd to us.

If you've never been to the caribbean, you better familiarize yourself with the concept of "island time". Being impatient isn't a good thing. Service is a little slower than most American expect. It's ok. relax. Of the three of us, 2 of us had the Rumba Burger, and one had crab cakes. The food was good. On the spendy side,... More

When you visit Bonaire, you'll want to go to Rumba Cafe! Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner - Monday through Saturday. We think they have the best cappuccino on the island. Great way to start your day - sipping hot coffee with soothing views of the ocean glistening in morning sun. For lunch & dinner, you can have something light... More
