We went to El Mambo with friends for a late morning breakfast. I'm a lover of Cuban coffee, however found the coffee to be so so. I've only eaten breakfast here. It was average, as well...something you can find in any local restaurant. I have yet to find a local Cuban restaurant the 'wow's' me with their breakfast and coffee.... More

We have been to El Mambo in Cape Coral Florida many times and have visited 2 of 3 locations. This local inexpensive Cuban hangout has delicious food, friendly staff, and laid back vibe. We love Breakfast consisting of eggs, Cuban bread, thick slice bacon, and juice or coffee for just a few bucks about a dozen times. The dinner menu... More

If your Mom cooks Cuban, go to her house. I've eaten at better local eateries in Miami and Tampa. This is an excellent local place in Cape Coral, the locals come in for lechon on the weekends. The best huevos fritos con bacon, café, cubano o leche for breakfast. Best value for home cooking in this area, so I give... More

Visited El Mambo with father-in-law during visit to Cape. Very casual atmosphere (utensils wrapped in plastic cover). It does have a great breakfast with choice of eggs, meat and cuban bread/toast for those on a budget. Cuban coffee is also a must (similar to cafe latte). We have frequented this restaurant for breakfast and have not been disappointed. The front... More

I went there few days ago, and I ussually ask for the same thing which is the pork sandwich, well, after waiting a few I didn't get what I wanted, I got another meat instead of the pork.

Food had absolutely no flavor, the meat was made with old oil, the air conditioned not working. Salt and pepper shakers have not been cleaned ever, filthy!! The only decent thing was the Guarapo and the mango shake. The waitress has no chance to make a decent salary with food this bad.Stay away !!

I was in the Cape Coral area with my family on vacation. We literally have no Cuban restaurants in our hometown area, so we thought we'd venture out of our comfort zone and try something new. I always try and research new places and find out a bit of basic info before we go. This place somehow had a few... More
