Really. We were on our way to the Cape Coral Saturday market and a couple looking like locals parked near us...so I asked them for a lunch recommendation. Without hesitation they said El Mambo and told us where it was, a few blocks away. It is about the food, not the view, not the decor. We were the only patrons... More

went in here for breakfast. Not a huge choice but more than adequate and excellent value. Try the Cuban coffee! Staff were friendly, service was very efficient. Looked like a place where the locals go, always a good sign.

My husband and I go for breakfast. Their breakfast special is $4.25 for 3 eggs anyway, bacon/ham/sausage, and bread. It's family owned by Cubans. Great cafe con leche (cuban coffee with milk) and it's included in the special. They also have a bakery and fresh juices. Great food and other breakfast options too. Also open for lunch and dinner.

Great food and really inexpensive. Service can be a little slow. But the food makes up for it. We ate twice in four days and quality was the same each day.

This is a local restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoyed a great breakfast deal. Would you believe three eggs, lots of bacon, orange juice, coffee and Cuban bread for $4.99? We had a table for four and everyone was happy with their meal. The waiter was great. I would like to try them for dinner some day.

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
