Mambo Lounge, a delightful place for Cuban music, food and Mojito lovers.Traditional dishes are well matched with contemporary cuisine in a succulent menu that combines an excellent variety of options. Not only does our well combined and tasteful cooking style make people return, but also our intimate and cozy atmosphere and splendid music attract those who come to Mambo Lounge. Basking in the warm summer breeze on our casual patio, you can enjoy either a chilled beer or glass of wine. And moreover, our staff will provide you with a professional and friendly service, turning your stay in a priceless experience.

Cozy warm ambience and good food.

We went on a Saturday evening, arrived at 6. Restaurant has a warm and welcoming feel and an authentic menu. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. A guitarist started playing at 8pm and the restaurant was largely full. Nice ambience. Our service was good. We had a nice evening and enjoyed... read more

My partner and I made reservations with Mambo Lounge during the Winter Prix, however, when we arrived for our reservation we were forced to wait over 2 hours for a table. The owner was rude and clearly ill-prepared for the influx of people but thankfully, the waitstaff made up for his behaviour. We only waited because as Cuban descendants, we... More

I tried this restaurant for the first time and was impressed with the food and service. The menu has lots to choose from - you can make an entire meal out of about 3-5 selections from the tapas portion of the menu, or you can try 1 or 2 tapas and then also choose one main course. If you're with... More

We visited the Mambo Lounge for the first time on a Friday night in November with two dear friends. We did not know what to expect but soon found out what lay in store for us. We did not have appetizers but had the entire special course meal in which everything was included except of course the wonderful freshly mixed... More

My friends and I went to Mambo Lodge Cuban Restaurant last Friday for a dinner. The food was just amazing: the appetizer was great, the steak was juicy and the desert, the Cuban flan, was outstanding. I have traveled to Cuba many times and the taste of the food at Mambo Lodge reminded me of real Cuban cuisine. The servers... More

Sadly disappointed! The black bean soup was bland. We both ordered the NY strip sirloin steak and while the steaks were huge they were both grisly. Best part of the meal were the deserts.

Great food, and good atmosphere. We had salad with avocado and mango, great combination. And also the seabass with coconut rice was delicious. And yes, try the drinks. Recommended!

We recently visited the Mambo Lounge again last weekend for their Cuban Carnival Night. The restaurant is authentic Cuban as not only is the owner Cuban but so is the staff. The food is good and the service is great. For the event they had great entertainment by way of a band and dancers. If you are missing Cuba and... More

Mambo Lounge is a go-to spot for celebrations for one particular group of friends, so we ended up there for yet another birthday celebration. Seating is very limited and the place was full, so it was a good thing that we had reserved (and it was a Wednesday night!). On this particular evening, I chose to drink beer (a nice... More
