Good meal for hungry travellers

My son and I went here for dinner after a long day of cycling and so we were pretty hungry and were craving carbs! We had the Caprese Salad which was simple (as it should be) and very tasty - they actually used a good quality, fresh mozzarella and large fresh basil leaves. We also had the... read more

Fed our family of 5 with truly delicious generous offerings. The complimentary bread kept coming, service was fast and friendly. Affordable children's meals. Highly recommend.

My husband and I LOVE Mambo. We either go in or order out every 2 weeks or so. Being from the east coast, this is the best pizza we can find around here. & Their caesar salad is the best i've ever had. The service is always wonderful and welcoming. It's a cute comfy little place.

Mambo Italiano is a small, quaint little restaurant in the middle of Fairhaven. Although the name implies only Italian food, we ate there twice because of the seafood. The Halibut, when available, is a delight. A must order. Also be sure to try the crab cakes which are delightful, crisp, not soggy, and very very tasty!

I've been here several times when visiting family. We are usually a large group which they accommodate very graciously. We also often have at least two kids, maybe three who are overdue for a nap. Yet the staff manages with charm and tolerance! We stay as long as the kids can stand and never feel rushed. My parents are so... More

We stopped here because it looked like a cute little place to get a bite to eat with our kids. I smiled at the waitress and asked what was their specialty as we had not been there before. The waitress was not very friendly and only suggested the highest priced items on the menu. The worst part of the service... More

The cheese tortellini was terrific: Rich flavors, generous portion...Delicious. The service was quite good too. We were a large group and I didn't realize they added the tip, so I essentially doubled the gratuity on accident. They caught my mistake and didn't add on the extra tip. Much appreciated! So, honest people + great food = highly recommend. I hope... More

The restaurant was warm and comfortable. Although, it was crowded, the service was wonderful considering we didn't have a reservation they managed to seat us quickly. Very fresh food! The menu is ample and traditional with modernized items. The tapenade was awesome! My husband enjoyed a yummy Italian dish while the kids had pizza.

I visited Bellingham and lunched here, favorite of my dining partner, who lives in the area. I chose the perfect crab cakes and a salad, his plate was a rich -looking pasta with smoked salmon and cream sauce. Mine was great, as was his, I tried it, no complaints only kudos. Well diverse menu even at lunch, but wished I'd... More
