On our last night in Belize we, the entire family of 9 went to Mambo's for dinner. We were picked up by a van and driven to the far north side of the island. It is located at the Matachica Resort. We were seated under the stars where we received excellent service and food. All they do not offer a... More

The crab stuffed grouper was amazing, and our server Jose Argueto did a great job. We like the convenience of having their boat come and pick us up at our resort & deliver us back after dinner.

The food is great and the setting (table, view) is wonderful for romantic (although there were some loud children). Food was amazing and dessert was in the top 5 EVER!! Great service by Mayra at our table, very nice and helpful!

We have been coming here for 14 years, Mambo is always one of the highlights when we visit Ambergris Caye. Food was excellent, our waiter Robin provided great service and the atmosphere is a delightful experience. We will look forward to seeing you next year!

This was the best dinner we had on the island. The dinner menu had many options-from fish to pasta to steak or chicken. Everything we got was delicious, and the desserts were sublime. We had a wonderful waiter (Jose Carlo) who was knowledgeable and patient (we had 7 kids with us). It was a beautiful candlelight setting with a breeze... More

Mambo provided a delicious meal while maintaining a beautiful ambiance. I enjoyed the beef carpaccio and homemade fettuccine, which I believed were both outstanding. However, I was not sure if Mambo was going to be overpriced or mediocre because of comments I'd heard. I have read some reviews suggesting to go elsewhere (Rojo, Coco Beach etc.). Having been to both... More
