Opened in the Spring of 2010, Mombo’s dining experience is a short vacation from it all offering creative cuisine with international influences, warm hospitality and unparalleled service in a historic Portsmouth, NH landmark. 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. Whether it is the chef’s charcuterie platter, the seared fois gras or our signature lobster bisque that you start your meal with, we want to make you feel as if you have escaped from everyday stresses and leave wanting to come on vacation again at Mombo.

The pickled blueberries were excellent but the blue... More

Mombo came highly recommended, but our group was sorely disappointed. We placed our orders at 7:15pm and finally received our dinners at 8:40pm. During this time we politely made several inquiries with both our server and the manager but received no helpful information from either. Water glasses went unfilled, requests for both additional bread and glasses of wine went unanswered.... More

We just had a 90th birthday luncheon for my mother at Mombo. Everything was perfect. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. The staff went out of their way to make the event a huge success. They were easy to work with and were willing to design a menu to our liking. I have dined there a few times... More

Mombo is a small town restaurant owned in part or whole by Thomas Perron. There were at least 3 guests, if not more, at this wedding reception whom were treated rudely by Thomas Perron, Mombo’s owner. Some of the guests were drinking adult beverages and some like me were drinking non-alcoholic soda. Perron went way out of his way to... More

Dear xxyy T, We are saddened to read your review and wish that you took a bit more time to recount the events that left you upset. While you may feel that the owner went out of his way to be “unsophisticated, coarse, aggressive, abrupt and rude”, it was not without warrant. And we feel those adjectives are callous and... More

What a great restaurant! It's right across the street from Prescott Park and has plenty of free parking. We were contemplating having our wedding here, but decided to have it closer to home. Nonetheless the staff was super friendly and accommodating and the food was amazing! Thank you!

I attended a large corporate dinner at Mombo. The food was delicious! Wonderful spinach, watermelon and goat cheese salad - very refreshing! The chicken entree was also very good and the dark chocolate dessert was decadant. The timeliness of the meal was lacking. It took awhile for the courses to be served - unsure of the reasoning for that but... More

We stumbled on this restaurant when sight seeing close to the harbour. Service was good in a very pleasant and cosy atmosphere. The Lobster Bisque is excellent. Good value for money

Great service and wonderful food in this charmingly rustic restaurant. The wait staff was so friendly and knowledgeable of the menu which helped our decision making process. The food was fantastic and unique and made for a very romantic, lovely evening.
