Walk under the wood-beamed ceiling and wrought-iron chandeliers to feel the relaxed elegance of the space. Sit in the fireplace lounge, at the open kitchen bar, in one of the comfy banquettes or even next to the bubbling fountain in the rear courtyard to enjoy the delightful made-from-scratch dishes using fresh, local and honest ingredients.

Went for a business dinner at the Mombo and was not disappointed. From the hostess to the waitress they were all courteous and accommodating. I enjoyed the Pork on the Bone Dish and the Tuna Sushi appetizer was one of my favorites as well. Highly recommend for an upscale dinner.

Had a fantastic meal here last week while in town for a wedding. Everything we had was delicious - the steak, pork chop, swordfish. We were also with my toddler & they had a high chair, crayons and great attitudes, which was much appreciated.

Live in the area and have eaten in almost every Restaurant in Portsmouth and Kittery and Mombo is consistently one of the best. Great meals in a great atmosphere.

We ate at Mombo's this weekend as part of our wedding anniversary celebration. I had duck and my wife had a pork chop. Both meals were excellent. We also split a salad and duck for appetizer's before our meal. The salad was probably the best part of the meal and was amazing. We had a bottle of red wine. The... More

I rarely, and I mean RARELY, give a 5 start review. We had reservations for 4, prior to a Prescott Park concert, but only 2 of us could come. No problem on their end. We were seated upstairs. The greetings and staff were spot on! We shared the melon salad....crazy combo, and absolutely fun and delicious! I had the local... More

Really nice interior and an innovative menu started what was an almost perfect dinner. The menu has a number of intriguing appetizers and main courses, and it took a few minutes to get make selections. Our waitress was excellent and professional and did not engage in chit chat. They also know how to pour a drink at this restaurant. My... More

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant after researching it on trip advisor. Great choice. Our waitress, Amanda, couldn't have been nicer. We never felt rushed. Amanda and the maître d welcomed us in this cozy restaurant. We had a couple of martinis to start which were nice sized and their cheese plate was wonderful. Amanda recommended the... More

The food and service @ Mombo was exceptional. In fact, I'd say it was one of the best meals I have ever had @ a restaurant in the US. I had a scallop dish that was out of this world. My husband had swordfish that was elegantly prepared and extremely tasty. The service was exceptional. Plus, the owner has a... More

My friend was married at Mombo last weekend and the entire event was fantastic; a big reason for that was the professionalism and attentiveness of the staff at Mombo! Beautiful venue, great food, great service
