The owner, Beatrice, is from Uruguay originally--and she knows how to put together a fantastic chivito (steak sandwich, with a fried egg, bacon, and cheese). We had ours custom ordered al "al pan" (on bread). Dee-lish-us. 😀 If you're in Bonaire, I highly recommend it for a nice lunch right by the ocean.

You will definitely enjoy the waterfront view while chilling here having a beer. But you cannot leave until you have eaten their chicken wings!! After having eaten here a year ago, the first thing we did when we got off the ship this year was to return for more. The staff is very friendly and the location is bar none.... More

While our waitress was very accommodating and friendly, three of us had different dorado dishes. This was the first time in 11 years of diving in the islands that the fish has tasted old and "fishy". In all fairness we didn't order pizza (we're from North NJ), and that did look good.

We went on a Tuesday night. The waterfront was lively that evening, but we got a table with no problem. If you’re in the mood, Rumba is a fun location for people watching and listening to the music and DJ from across the street. We ordered the daily fish special. The service was pleasant, the meal was fine, and the... More

I am a bit of a pizza snob and I love good food. We spent 10 days in Bonaire and stumbled across Rumba after a long amazing day of snorkelling and swimming. We got a few slices to go and were pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were. I'm not sure if it was the cheese or the dough or... More

They made us move because the table we wanted was "reserved". Made you pay for wifi and not very friendly. Looking for a different place to spend our money.

House Special dinner from Uruguay was very good after a day of diving. Steak, ham and egg on a bed of fries. Get the Amstel beer versus Polar - 25% more at same price. My wife's meal came out cold, but they replaced with pipping hot fish, veggies and fries when she asked.

Ate here on our last night and ordered the pizza. It was busy and a long wait but the pizza was great! Ordered the Margherita pizza and added chicken and it was one of the best pizzas I have had. It is in a nice location as well.
