I wonder if I could ever get tired of Alaskan Halibut. Not here! They served a very large portion of fish along with a medly of cut and grilled veggies in some type of light sauce which was very tasty. Hubby had a greek salad topped with Wild salmon which he enjoyed. Will return when in area.

This is located in the quaint Fairhaven section of Bellingham. It is very noisy in the front section of this restaurant - suggest asking for a table in the back. Chicken piccata was very good. Meatballs and spagetti was good.

Mambo is a beautiful little spot near the center of oldtown Fairhaven. The menu, food, staff, and service were all good. The dining room is full of local art. Teens and adults were happy. We would definitely return.

My wife and I have been dining here for years. We havce only had pasta dishes. We think it is the best in Bellingham. Very casual. High noise level.

My wife and I had the lasagna which was quite tasty. There were many other items on the menu which also look good which we will try next time (the lasagna was good, but we like variety).

The food here is invariably excelllent. Service is fast, especially during busy lunch hours. There are tables outside for warmer weather, which in January, seems a distant dream.

Great food, I always order the ravioli with smoked gouda and sun-dried tomato accompanied with a green salad. Always perfect. The pasta arrives steaming hot and the salad absolutely crisp and fresh. And before I forget, for starters a basket of french bread and butter is placed on the table - something to nibble on with your glass of wine.... More

I love this place. Have been twice now, once with a friend earlier this year and once in a group of eight in September. Service, food quality, serving size and ambiance were terrific both times. A bit noisy, but who goes to an Italian restaurant if one doesn't want to be surrounded by boisterous conversation and laughter? A »must-do« class... More

One of our go to after a relaxing spa treatment at the Chrysalis ......everything we have ordered is delicious and plenty of it. Highly recommend it. We live in Vancouver but have found the spa in Fairhaven followed by Mambos a perfect afternoon and dinner
