Went here for a combined, retirement, birthday dinner, other than having to wait some time for the main course, (we didn't have starters) it was definitely worth the wait. Tina bought us courtesy olives whilst waiting. There was too much to eat, so some was bought home. Also at the end she offered us all a free liquor as it... More

We were looking for somewhere cosy and friendly and a little bit different from the chains and chips places. In amongst the take aways and mini supermarkets of Seaside, Eastbourne, parallel to the seafront, we found Mo Mambo. Tapas was yummy, all served with a smooth red wine and a friendly service in a great atmosphere of candle light and... More

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 with pesto rocket for... 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.

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
