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.

Each time that we come in for dinner, I continue to be amazed, delighted and surprised! This has to be one of the top restaurants in Portsmouth NH - not only for their food, but the staff and management "tops" in the industry. The last several times we have taken our seats right at the beautiful bar because behind this... More

I went out for a drink at Mombo recently and had a marvelous time at the bar. The bartender, Hannah, was as sweet as could be and extremely helpful in steering me in the right direction for both food and drink. She seemed to be very knowledgeable about the menu items and pairing the drinks accordingly. My drinks were delivered... More

I went there for the first time tonight for a friend's birthday. The staff were excellent and most accommodating to my friend that had a fish allergy. The owner , Tom, was most hospitable and accommodating. Food was well presented and delicious. Definitely would recommend it!

Great atmosphere in a colonial building at Strawberry Banke. We checked out Mombo for our first time during the 3 course prix fixe Portsmouth restaurant week. I had pork and wife had Thai style beef short rib. Great food and phenomenal service. Liz was a great server. Very attentive and personable! Will definitely return.

It's school vacation week and we were told upon entering that Mombo was missing a cook and two others. That should have been the first indication to leave. We arrived at 6:20pm and received our cold meals at 8:10pm. Server had too many tables. She never asked us if we wanted more bread, or try to come and talk to... More

First, we were seated in the literal corner, to your right as you walk in the door. While somewhat close to the fireplace, cold radiated from the windows and walls surrounding us which made our corner perch feel like we were in a cold box. The service was friendly and either fast or very slow. My pork chop was overcooked... More

This is our second dinner at Mombo and my second 5 star rating. When I read though some of the other reviews I wonder. How could an experience so good for us twice be so different for others? Some of the complaints are interesting. No bread basket? - I'll take fresh baked mini-loaf and curry cornbread over a whole basket... More
