Nicely appointed dining room. Great casados for lunch. Fixed price gets you one of three entrees and a beverage.

I was in Heredia for almost 4 weeks studying at Intercultura. This restaurant is one block away and I ate here approximately 15 out of 20 days. The "casado" food was delicious every single day and for the price it could not be beaten.

Mambo´s Cafe is a local restaurant influenced by typical costarican food. Gallo Pinto in the morning, Casados in lunch time, and delicious deserts for coffee breaks. Doña Banny (my Mom) is the one in charge of cuisine, taking care of the mom´s best recipes in town. We are located only 1 block away from Intercultura Spanish School. Also, we are fan of our soccer team HEREDIANO.
