After reading terrific reviews and wanting tasty Cuban food, we decided on Rumba Cuban Café. The reviews are not wrong - the food is incredible. The Cuban sandwich was excellent and the pollo a la cubana and the lechon asado pork was outstanding. Very friendly and professional service. They have a loyal clientele and no wonder, the food is terrific. Go - you will not be disappointed!

Our server Rosa was very informative, helpful with recommendations and friendly. Attentive but not overbearing. For some reason, even though we were greeted at the door and gave our name and reservation, we were logged as a no show by open table. We were definitely there and will return.

We had a wonderful lunch at Rumba! Friendly staff, delicious meal and immaculately clean. My niece and I both had the cuban sandwich special which included beans. It was wonderful! The food came out hot and fast, We each got a side order of rice to mix with our beans. Those were the best beans I've ever tasted! We will definitely be back!

Maybe it was the late hour (we arrived about 8:10 for an 8 pm reservation), but we didn't have the great experience most reviewers seem to have had. Space was fine...not cool. Not funky. Not stylish. Just meh. We were greeted by a very pleasant hostess who also became our very pleasant waitress. We had the tamales to start: tasty, but the center was cold. Like they were rushing it out. We both had the 'famous' Lechon Asado (pulled pork). Side of sweet plantains were GREAT. Moros (rice and beans cooked together) were very good. Not so much the pulled pork. And this is where the timing comes in. I feel we got the scraps at the end of the night.. Overly burnt, dried out pieces coupled with overly moist meat (as though juices were poured atop sitting meat to make it juicer and 'fresh.'). While we were finishing up about 8:45, they were busily cleaning up and we felt very much like they were hoping we'd leave and not order dessert. We obliged. If we go again -- but I doubt it -- we wouldn't go in the final hour.

Our first time in Naples to celebrate our Third Honeymoon (fifteen years anniversary). We thought it would fun to try Cuban food since we do not do it too often. After reading many great reviews about Rumba Cuban Cafe on OpenTable & Yelp, we gave it a try. What an amazing dining experience! Amazing food, and incredible service! The whole staff was there to greet and help you with a smile. We had Lechon Asado, it was incredible! If you ever thought about trying Cuban food, definitely start here first.

It was a busy night and the noise grew louder as more people were seated. I think the prices have gone up, but we still love the food. Very generous portions so we always take home leftovers.

Nice ambiance but the cost of entree dishes was too expensive for what we recieved. No reason basic Cuban cuisine should be $25-30 for entree.

Prior to moving to Naples three years ago from Denver I had read great things about Rumba Cuban Cafe. I always wanted to try it and finally did. From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable. The view is not great and the tables are very small. We were a party of four adults. The menu was wonderful. The bread is very different and delicious, the salads were very fresh and my meal was just awesome. If they had more space they would do incredible business. So after three years of eating at numerous restaurants from Marco Island to Naples I must say this is now my favorite. I was a food and beverage director at Starwood Hotels and Resorts before retiring so this is a very critical and honest review. I was happy to do it and pass along this fantastic find.

We were a party of 5 and the service could not have been better. From seating us despite being early for our res, to setting us up outside at our request, to pointing out traditional dishes and sides, to checking on our needs throughout dinner - we could not have had a better experience. And the food was spectacular! Rumba should be on your “must try” list. Five stars is not enough!

The people at Rumba Cuban Cafe made the whole experience for us. The lovely servers had nothing but smiles and waves for my children and were both friendly and attentive when bringing out our meal. The food was a hit, too! Would highly recommend to others and hope to return in the future. Absolutely delightful.

We loved this place. The Mojito was excellent and we savored the pork with lime run, the shrimps ajillo, the fried plantains and the black beans. We ate outside on a balmy night in Naples. Our server Gina deserves special praise.

This was an outstanding find! My brother has been talking about this restaurant for a couple of years and on our trip to Naples we decided to try it. We were very happy! The food was incredibly good - I have only experience Cuban food a couple of times previously but never as delicious as this. We had the Cuban sandwich and my wife had the pork and they were wonderful. The owner, George, greeted us as if we were long time customers. The servers were extremely friendly. This was a great experience and I would highly recommend Rumba.

We’ve been here 3 times during our two month stay. Absolutely delicious food. Twice for lunch - Cuban sandwich is wonderful. Once for dinner - We had the pork and Ropa Viejo and shrimp. Pork was so good. Husband loved the tamales app - he ordered that every time. The service is wonderful. Staff is extremely friendly. The owner/manager sets the bar for the staff. He’s very personable. Can’t recommend enough. One more trip before we leave on Thursday.
