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

Stopped in after an island tour and walking around the shopping area. The restaurant is open air in a mall. There are tables, but we sat at the counter. Ordered the fish and chips. Awesome. It was mahi-mahi. Fries was served hot. Other dished looked good. Had a few beers with lunch. Prices were very reasonable. WiFi is "free" if... More

Rumba is located right on the waterfront of Kralendijk and it's so great for pizza and people watching! We stopped here whenever we visited Playa and even brought pizza home. SO GOOD!

There was a special on chicken fajitas that came with fries, salad, and a bowl of ice cream included. It was a great value so we ate at Rumba. The fajitas were made in a Panini maker which is unusual for us but they tasted great. The chicken sandwich was also good. The servers were very friendly. The only problem... More

This place was great for a quick lunch (I always ordered the pizza). It is in the center of town and was close to our dive sites. They also do take out.

Stopped into Rumba for dinner last Thursday evening ... another tasty pizza. Best on the island in my opinion ... always order the large so I have some to take home. Our friends did the same. If you like pizza, don;t miss Rumba.

This is the untold Jewel of the island. Simple local food with great service and always happy to see you. If you are looking to be fawned over by a waiter and seeking some type of cuisine. This will not be your place. On the other hand if you like a cold Mojito and simple food including a superb pizza... More

We were sent here by a couple of local residents. The staff was polite and the menu was pretty basic. Pizza and sandwiches for lunch. I had the chorizo sandwich...not bad at all. Daughter said the steak sandwich was very good. Wife loved the pineapple fruit and water shake.
