Mama Roomba's is a favorite! It is very small and quaint but with big flavorful food! Bakersfield's only Caribbean restaurant. Great Sangria and mojito's! Food is served family style so you get to sample several delicious items. This is a gem!

I was recently visiting relatives in Bakersfield, and because I had seen Guy Fieri's show on Bakersfield, where he visited this restaurant, we all decided to try it out. Sorry to say the taste of the food is one of the worse meals I have had. My wife ordered Cuban sandwich, besides the meat being tasteless, the bread used was... More

Mama Roomba can always be counted on for a delicious culinary experience. Everything is fresh and yummy but the chicken paillard, over a side order of white rice, is my favorite. Ask to be seated in Julia's area in this small eatery - she knows her stuff.

We had a great time with friends. There was four of us and we all got our plates at separate times which was fine for us, but other people may have an issue with that. The appetizers were delicious and the staff was super friendly! Food was full of flavor! Loved the tortilla soup!

Omg. The appetizers are to die for. Skip the main dishes (I never tried them ) because you will be in love with finger food and beer.

ate here for dinner on a Monday night. Not much open in Bakersfield on Monday night for some reason. This restaurant is in downtown, off an alley that includes a couple of dive bars. Should have listened to my golden rule to "follow the people", cause as we walked in I noticed the place was empty. Ordered some saute mushrooms... More

I was looking forward to this place, but was very disappointed. When we were the only ones in the restaurant, I should have thought twice. Warm spinach salad was decent. Boneless pork chops would have been good had they not been covered with garlic. I love garlic, but this garlic had an odd flavor to it. Not fresh and was... More
