Description: 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.

This place is fantastic. We happened by on a Tuesday night and were pleasantly surprised. From the warm, cozy atmosphere right on the grounds of Strawbery Banke to the stellar service and amazing food, this place blew us away! We started out with the Charcuterie plate to share and it was terrific- all of the flavors perfectly balanced. I got... More

They were very accommodating about us arriving late and adding more people to the group but it was mid-week so not too busy. There food here is good and the variety is nice. My salad was quite small though. Lettuce is not exactly expensive so they could throw a bit more on to not look cheap. And the apple in... More

This place was recommended to us by the concierge at The Wentworth. The menu is impressive as is the wine list. The kitchen, however, is overly ambitious and has lost sight of taste. With so many ingredients and adjectives for them the taste buds are confused. A simpler approach to food would work a lot better. Make a crusty bread... More

Best restaurant in a town full of great restaurants. Beautiful setting w a gourmet menu. The muscles in a edamame sauce was amazing. The short ribs and the swordfish entrees were both big hits.

Great unique menu with soooo many good alternatives on it. Setting in old old grocery store (redone of course) was fantastic and beautifully done. Short ribs were superb. Service above average and a little pricey.

This was our second trip to Mombo and I'm starting to tell people this is my new favorite restaurant. Both times the food was great, right down to the fresh baked roasted vegetable bread they serve before the meal. Ambiance is important to me as I don't just eat out for the food but the experience. Inside and out this... More

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.
