This place is fun! They have live dancers at night, male and female. They have a dance floor also, and the place can and does get crowded. The music is upbeat (mostly Hispanic: salsa, merengue, bachata; hip-hop) however, the drinks are super pricey, and they add gratuity to everything so watch out for that.

Watch out for the prices it can get really crazy if you don't ask first for prices.great ambience great show. But the idea of dinning out in the street is not my perfect match.

Its crowded and a bit expensive, but we couldn't stop from returning again and again. The shows are too much fun. Sexy but not offensive. A very talented collection of attractive entertainers. It just seems that everyone there is enjoying themselves.

The food here is not bad, which is good, because the music the dancing, the sightseeing and people watching and the service are all top notch. Great out door seating. They have live music during the day,a and always dancing, good music and fun. Did I mention that the food is not bad either. Remember though, an 18% gratuity is... More

Been here a couple times now. Went for lunch on a Tuesday. We were the only ones in there. Which was fine. I had a teen with me but I know it's more of an "adult" restaurant. Good service and all the food was yummy. I know at night they TURN UP!! So the relaxed vibe in there was perfect... More

Had a great time at Mango's. The food was well seasoned and the meat and fish cooked perfectly. If you can, get a table on the sidewalk in front of the stage area. On your right if facing the restaurant. The service was efficient, nothing over the top. But given the skimpy attire of the female performers at the front... More

Great food, staff are good looking and friendly. The shows are awesome. Lots of Latin singing and dancing. You can easily lose a few hours in Mangos. If I'm ever in Miami stopping at Mango's is a must.

We went twice. Once during the weekday, and once on the weekend. Going on the weekday it was live. The show was great! And best of all it was a free show. On the weekend they charged a cover and it was very crowded.. No place to sit and watch except maybe a table on the 2nd floor if you... More

I visited "Cafe Mango" twice when visiting South Beach 15+ years ago and it was such a unique experience we always recommended the place to folks visiting South Beach. The waitnesses would serve you, then change into Cuban dress and dance on the bar. Evenings had salsa music and great dancing - food and mojitos. High energy and excitement but... More

I went to Mangos with a group of friends. The cover was really cheap! Only $10 & you can leave and reenter as much as you'd like. The music was on point and the performances every hour are fun to watch as well.
