Been here a few times and went back this month for my birthday. Tina who owns this mo mambo's recognised me and my partner by name, giving us a warm welcome and mentioning that she hadn't seen us in a while. It's great to go back somewhere where they remember you. We had mussels and gnocchetti... read more

We got a warm welcome, was seated and greeted, served quickly amazing atmosphere. The owner provided some great entertainment with a live band. Family feel with good food and drink would recommend. Had a great night, thank you.

Decided to have a Valentine celebration meal at Mo Mambo restaurant. We chose the special meal which was ossobuco. It was a bit more expensive than our normal italian selection but proved to be really tasty and worth the extra. The sweet we chose was a strawberry tiramisu again a special. The service and atmosphere was very good . A... More

Very friendly owner, not so friendly other members of staff though, which is a shame as lets it down. Food very nice. Only complaints would be the reastaurant is cold and the seats are very hard, which made us rush our food as was very uncomfortable to sit down for long.

After friends visited last year and thoroughly enjoyed their meal, we were looking forward to our meal. Regretfully, the restauarant was very cold and the food barely average with the pizzas servied on cold plates. However, this may just have been an off evening and we shall probably return to give it another go. With a lot of competition in... More

This is the best meal I have had for a long time, the calamari just melted in your mouth. The main was delicious, and to top it all the creme brule was brilliant. The staff were very helpful would definitely come here again.

Returning here is always good. A family run restaurant, good prices, great food. A fixed price 3 course menu in the week is very good value for £13. The a la carte is good too, and you can vary the dish as you wish. The owners are always friendly. Recommended.

I visited Mo Mambo a few weeks ago when visiting family in Eastbourne, and we had a really good experience! The staff are very friendly, the food is delicious and the Italian music adds a lot to the atmosphere.
