We visit Rumba Cafe on a regular basis, because I am very fond of their pizza. This little cafe has a lot going for it. The waitstaff is extremely friendly and personable, and they don't operate on "island time". Also, the prices are very reasonable, and the portions are good. It's a good value for Bonaire. I should note that... More

How good can a pizza get, well it does not get much better than a fresh dough with plenty of topping freshly cooked, great place for people watching or just chilling in the afternoon sun,.

Cheap Pizza and great food. For $20 one of the best place to eat on the island. The 16 inch pizza will feed a four people so go hungry. Good thin crust lots of cheese. We had a group of nine they handles us well. The salads and burgers were had by a couple of others in our group and... More

While out walking, make a point of stopping by the Rumba cafe near Karel's. I believe we stopped by there two or three times on this trip. Good afternoon eats. We had the margherita pizza and it was out of this world. Will be hard to eat pizza back home again.

Food is affordable, something very tasty other reasonable greasy (pizza's). Mind you, if you make any comments on this quality, the owner can be a bit explosive :). They where correct to skip the dish of my bill

I hate to say it, but it's true. Rumba Cafe fits the bill when it comes to bad food and bad service on Bonaire. I really wanted to like this little place, but it just didn't measure up. The only thing that Rumba Cafe has going for it is it's location on the waterfront.

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.
