I really like hot dogs. The Hot Dog Full is the best. A big fat hot dog with lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and cheese. Great flavor. The service is slow but hey this is Bonaire and one needs to live with island time.

At lunch here and had the Rumba burger. Nothing great about the food but it was more than acceptable for a quick lunch. Service was ok also but nothing to brag about.

We had been to several restaurants by the time we tried The Rumba Cafe. So far the food had been great. Maybe with a name such a the Rumba Cafe we should have tried something different. I had a steak sandwich and my wife had a burger. My steak sandwich wasn't terrible, but wasn't what I expected. It wasn't a... More

Food was good. Pizza was okay but not great. Pasta was a little bland. Good location. Prices were in line with what's to be expected in a tourist area. Would return but not somewhere I would seek out.

We had a table on the rail right by the street. This made for great people watching and beautiful view of the sunset. We ordered beer and seafood pizza. Our waitress was very personable and attentive. Fun atmosphere. You can't go wrong here.

We ate here a few times over our last vacation, and as always the service and food was good, but what makes this place special is the view. If you get here before sunset it's a great place to watch it. The portions are big but a good price, wine is $5 a glass and beer is about $3 a... More

We were looking for a quick and less expensive meal with a view of the waterfront and found this restaurant to fit the bill. We were not disappointed and would go back again to try the pizza since we saw many people eating this.

The food was good, nothing fancy, service was fine, located near the water. Family dining would be good here. Prices are very reasonable.

A good sea view and tasty, simple food. We went three times and the food was consistently good and reasonably priced. We ate fish each time and it was cooked just right and the calamari was superb. We didn't have a pizza, but they were enormous and looked good - everyone seemed to take half home in a box. They... More

We saw outside and enjoyed a wonderful lunch and a cold beer - watched the people of Bonaire and soaked up the sun! It was wonderful!
