Good food and wine in a comfortable setting off the main streets of Ventura. An early dinner is fairly quiet and service good.

Brunch was quite good, but not quite great. The server was excellent with a good sense of humor. Ambience outdoors is very pleasant. A little noisy at times, but not annoyingly so--people having fun, a happening spot. Food is a little pricey but tasty. Two in party had Prosecco, which was very nice.

Came here once before for a happy hour. Specials were really good: pulled pork tacos and mojitos. Again, very friendly, upbeat service.

The atmosphere is the best! Wonderful! Kinda hidden place but beautiful! The food was good but not the best I’ve ever had. The pork flatbread had too many onions and not enough pork. I would go back!

Sorry, but I don't like this place and I have dined here many times. The food is so overseasoned with spices that you rarely taste the food. This time around, we were seated in a wind tunnel and we were freezing. The service is acceptable, but it's still not worth all the hubbub.

Love this restaurant. We spend so many special occasions here as the food is always excellent along with the service. Their drinks are refreshing and unique. If you haven't tried the Wagyu burger or the sea bass, these are a must!!!

Really lovely restaurant with a huge patio. Food and drink was mostly great (my sea bass was a tad over cooked but everything else we ordered was delicious. Cocktails were inventive and refreshingly not too sweet which is a nice change. Friendly staff, and dog friendly to boot! We will definitely be back.

I love this place but last night the service was not great. Everything took twice as long as it should have. To be greeted, to get water, to take our drinks orders, to get food. Luckily the ambiance is fabulous and the company was good.

We've probably been to the Rumfish y Vino restaurant in Placencia, Belize 15 or more times in the past 10 years. This July, we were reminded, while dining there, that there is a sister Rumfish y Vino restaurant in Ventura California, and we decided to make a special trip to have dinner there. We were not disappointed! We started with cocktails and conch fritters (how many places in California can you get that?). The fritters were piping hot, crunchy on the outside, and served with a delicious fritter sauce. I had a wonderful dish of pork belly and hominy, with avocado and other accompaniments; it was wonderful. My companion had the salmon, which she enjoyed very much. We're looking forward to a return trip!

For a cozy but out-of-the-ordinary experience with a flair of Pinterest ambience, Rumfish y Vino is your venue. Perfect for special occasions that doesn’t ask for formality yet remaining stylish. Their cuisine is superb, giving their dishes good harmony of flavors and textures, all served in artistic presentations. I’ve been here a few times this year. Always a pleasureful experience.

We enjoy an early dinner around 5pm. Restaurant is not overly crowded and the staff not running around as much. From wine, starters and dinner we enjoyed everything.

The patio is very pretty with foliage and blue and white striped umbrellas. We were truly pampered and the food was delectable. I started with a soup made with coconut milk and toasted bread. Yummy and then I had pork sandwiches. I would just ask for more pickles on the sandwich next time. My husband really liked his fish tacos and gourmet root beer. We will definitely come back again and again.

Delicious food, very good and friendly service, outdoor dining but very loud when tables are all full. There are a few outside tables not directly in the dining area that provided a much quieter dining experience. Happy that option was available.

The highlight of our dinner was the service, from the receptionist to the servers to the busboys. All were professional, helpful and friendly.

The seafood stew and fish tacos were outstanding while the salmon was dry due to being overcooked.

The outdoor patio is a plus during the current pandemic but do note that the noise level approaches what it might be like in most indoor situations.
