Authentic Italian food, great atmosphere and good value

We visited Mo Mambo twice during a short break in Eastbourne, having been there before a couple of years ago. We liked it then and we were pleased that nothing much has changed - the food was flavoursome with a really, authentic Italian taste. It's a small restaurant but the tables are well spaced... read more

From the moment I arrived I was impressed. A very warm welcome from my waitress (the amazing Sarah) and the restaurant owner (Mo). I was eating alone and they made me feel at ease and welcome. And the food, OMG, so tasty, and fairly priced. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thanks Mo and Sarah. See you again on Wednesday.... More

I really enjoyed this little restaurant. We ate from the set menu (approximately £12 for 2 courses) which provided plenty of choice for both myself and my partner. The restaurant wasn't very busy but it was mid week. The food and the service were both excellent, and we were made to feel very welcome.

Travelling on my own i find it difficult to find a home from home but at Mo Mambo i was made to feel like family. The food was REAL home family cooking and of an excellent quality. It was very evident that it is all prepared here by the head chef Paola when it is ordered and not pre prepared... More

Very warmly welcomed by Tina, the Italian owner. She could not have been more attentive or helpful/friendly, which was greatly appreciated. We shared a generous starter of delicious bruschetta, followed by a wonderful peppered steak for me and my husband had a very enjoyable lasagne. Sadly, no room for dessert!! Very reasonable prices and nice atmosphere. We shall return...!!

No atmosphere, mediocre food and a little expensive for what you get. It was not my choice to eat here and I wouldn't make the choice to go back

Came here for our Christmas work meal. Service was excellent and staff very friendly. My meal was amazing! Very large main portion, I can recommend the seabass. Great service, food and value for money. I would recommend trying here and I will definitely be returning.

We have visited the "other Mo Mambo" before - and found it very good. This wonderful Taverna style restaurant really does give the full Italian experience though! The food here is truly excellent. Everything from the Ciabatta as a nibble to start with, nicely toasted with excellent Olive Oil and Balsamic, to the dough for the fantastic Pizza has obviously... More
