Good food, great service and did not rush us which I really like! We ate outside with my dog and everyone was so nice about him being there. I would definitely go again- VERY SOLID food and great menu for vegetarians.

Rumfish evino is a beautiful place to eat outside. Though waiters and waitresses are very pleasant, although for this visit I wish you would have came by to ask how we were doing or what we needed more often. (But it was Father's day so...) Everything I've eaten there has been fabulous the mussles are the bomb.. this time I got a flatbread pizza and I wish there was more sauce and cheese to cover the whole bread not just the center cuz I felt like I just ate bread. Other than that this places ambiance is amazing and worth it to pay a little extra and treat yourself.

Excellent food and ambiance!
Only gripe is we did get forgotten about for a while (20-30 min) between the completion of dinner and her taking our dessert orders. We were having fun so not that big of a deal except that there was a surprise party waiting on my daughter and her friends at our house for her Birthday. Server may have just been new (given many that used to work there probably found new jobs or are still collecting unemployment).
All in all a great night with family and friends!

It was a great experience, except sitting at a small table for 4 was hard as we were from two different households and could not really social distance...so would only go back if a party of 4 could sit at a larger table or if it was just two of us!

Just a really enjoyable experience.. a friend I hadn’t seen, since the shelter in place began , and I had lunch on the patio. The service, food and ambiance were perfect. The servers were all wearing masks and taking great care to socially distance and maintain a clean environment. Paper food and drink menus were provided for us to share . We each had the arugula fig and goat cheese salads with mahi mahi as well as the orange jalapeño spicy margaritas. Simply cannot wait to return.

Lovely experience on the patio. Habanero vodka martini was spot on, plantain chips addictive, my quinoa salad was huge, filling and delicious. I kept eating long after I was full. No need to add protein to this salad, it’s a completely satisfying meal. Terrific service, all good.

Was an amazing foodie experience! Everything was excellent! From Their specialty drinks to a variety of appetizers to our amazing dinner options/choices to dessert! Love the Caribbean twist! Beyond Flavorful! Very pricey. Don’t mind spending money on good food it’s just for the portion sizes? A bit overpriced.

A friend took me to Rumfish on Saturday to celebrate my birthday. We had such a wonderful experience that we took our husbands on Sunday to celebrate the reawakening of Ventura after our sheltering in place for so long. Friendly staff, great drinks, and good food. Patio is beautiful. Social distancing and precautions are practiced. Highly recommend you come visit Rumfish!

My boyfriend and I went here for happy hour, first post-quarantine outing. The staff wore masks and the tables were distanced to comply with the new restaurant regulations. The happy hour prices were a great value for what we ordered. I would recommend the ceviche and conch fritters. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Went for a birthday, they were one of the only places open for dine in at the time. I give some concession for the mediocre food since they have been closed for almost 3 months. The desserts were amazing though. Might give them a try down the line.

We have been to Rumfish y Vino many times in the past, mostly for lunch. We have always enjoyed the food, service and the ambience. Tonight the Sea Bass was great! We always get the Conch Fritters as an appetizer and I highly recommend them.

We are very glad they are open for dine in business again!

Great restaurant, my favorite in Ventura. The conch fritters are a must. The ambience is very nice because it's far from the freeway and a block from Main street. Very reasonable prices especially for such well prepared food. Highly recommended! AAAAA+++++

OMG this place was PHENOMENAL. We were there on our honeymoon and even though we live 1.5 hrs away, we will definitely be back. The ambiance, even with social distancing, was great. Very lovely outdoor patio for dining. The service was great (we got a free scoop of ice cream to share) and the staff made great recommendations to help us choose the most delicious and delectable meal. We definitely overate, but we wanted to try all the Things! Everything was amazing. Already drooling just thinking about our next visit. Do not miss Rumfish y Vino!

We enjoyed a nice dinner outside on the patio area. All the tables were spaced out and the patio was nicely decorated with plants/flowers and lights. They also had heaters available. The food was great; I would go back again.
