Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great Caribbean vibe. Delicious food and service. The best Ceasar salad I ever had. You can also get away with not busting the calorie budget by getting a taco and a salad. They also have a nice happy hour however the half price appetizers are...limited as are the drinks. Wish they would expand the happy hour options but this is in no way a big issue. We love this place any time of day. Their sister restaurants are also among the best in the Hamptons.More

The atmosphere here is very happy and super noisy, even when less than half full. I had to remove my hearing aids. The staff are outstanding. The bar tender clearly loves her work and has bottomless energy and smiles! No draft beer. The food varied...from incredibly delicious coconut huge shrimp to overpriced disappointing salad with boring jerk chicken. I like the valet parking because their parking lot is quite tiny. For those not put off by the very loud bouncing noise off all the reflective surfaces, this restaurant offers one of the best bars and wonderful views in the Hamptons, Not cheap, but well worth returning to! The last time I was here, the food was really excellent. Being consistent is what I like to see in a restaurant and this place needs some improvement in the kitchen.More

We were visiting Southampton . I wanted to find a place with a good location near the water & a fun menu . This place met both criteria . An amazing burger & fries along with a coconut martini

The food and vibe was really good. They played some really good Spanish music and the food was so good. We started with the guacamole and chips which also brought a side of cheese as well. It was delicious. For our entrees I had the...Dominican ribs with sweet potato mash and my girlfriend had the jerk chicken taco with a side of sweet plantains. The ribs were so flavorful and with the right amount of bbq sauce. The sweet potato mash was outstanding, I could have eaten a whole plate of them. My girlfriend enjoyed her taco but the sweet plantains were so good. We really liked this place, definitely a gem. The service was excellent, they took care of us immediately.More

We were a large party for brunch on Mothers Day. The service was very good and the food excellent. There was a mix up in the kitchen and one guests meal came out after the rest of the party had eaten. The manager couldn’t have...been nicer. He apologized many times and then gave us a HuGE discount. We will certainly go back again!More

I’ve been to Rumbas a couple of times and have never been disappointed. Great food and drinks. Luckily we went before the summer season and it wasn’t noisy or crowded. During the Summer it’s crazy busy!

This is obviously one of the most popular restaurants in the area for a reason. There's a cute little section to walk by the beach and enjoy the view as well as a bus to dine in! Regardless, the restaurant is perfect for those lazy...summer beachy vibes and they have great food to boot - easily the best dinner we had during our visit. I do not suggest the curries as they have clearly superior dishes, but we had a great time drinking, eating, and talking together.More

Good experience but not quite 5-stars I was hoping for. Caribbean Mahi delicious- firm square of fish on bed of caramelized plantains in pool of coconut cream (that I'd kill to have recipe for) finished with avocado decoration. Tropical flavors is something my everyday life...is missing & not so easy to come by in the restaurant landscape. Tried West Indies Breakfast Taco- pretty sure this is their sweet spot. Smokey rib meat, lime crema refreshing, soft taco nice firm texture. Shrimp Haiti had great peppery heat, but dish's other elements did not stand up well to spice. Appetizer Coconut Shrimp, c'mon 3 shrimp? Husband & I each had 1.5 shrimp of which I mainly got a bite of tail shell. We agreed mayonnaise-like horseradish dipping sauce did not seem like right compliment- a bit bold for tropical flavor & thick consistency meant spooning on top or losing shrimp & its jacket. Took Key Lime Pie & Tres Leche cake home. Hours later both were still very good. Seated on outdoor deck with beautiful view, but also somewhat forgotten about. A little more forgivable when indoors, not when sweating thirstily in sun. Tall chairs difficult to mount & ledge we ate off felt a little unkept. Agree with other reviewer, placemats. Didn't think inside was too appealing- place could use a little sprucing up.More

We love this restaurant. The food and staff are warm and friendly. great ambience as well. My only complaint is that there is barely any liquor in the delicious mixed drinks. Even with a floater added it doesn't pack any punch in the punch.

We come here every Summer and it always is a great time. The food and drinks are top notch. The rib app is amazing! The tacos are great too. Rum punch is the best. It's better to get a reservation rather then just showing up...the wait time could be really long.More

We picked Rumba because of its position in TripAdvisor. Great choice. Very casual and food was good and reasonably priced. Only observation that might matter to some is that it is a bit loud. Lively atmosphere with lots of young people. Would definitely recommend.

Love this restaurant and always stop by on our way out to Montauk. Rum drinks were excellent, duck empanadas outstanding, tacos delicious and tres leche dessert was to die for. Our waiter Kevin was excellent. Can’t wait to come back
