We had our windshield replaced & they offered us restaurant coupons for using Angie's List. We chose $35 at Mambo & we enjoyed it so much we've been back three times. The food is excellent fresh Italian - great soup, salad, pasta, & the service & atmosphere are also excellent. Mambo is in an old brick Fairhaven building - small,... More

We love Mambo and have a variety of meals, including the steak salad, pesto linguine, tortellini, lasagna, spaghetti with meatballs, and their side salads. Always a great experience!

Dinner at Mambo's tonight was a delight. We had reservations, which would have been mandatory on this night, and our table was ready when we arrived. Service was good, out waitress very efficient and good at her job. We both ordered drinks - my partner an in-house Sangria and me a local beer - along with pasta for our mains... More

Only went there once, so could have been what we happened to order, but we found the food fine, not great. Really nice people and fun, busy atmosphere, though. Has a great kind of humming energy.

It is a trademark of most tourist-serving restaurants;the lack of interest in providing a consistent experience. It almost seems at times that you have to make the day (somehow) of the wait staff at this establishment to obtain a decent dining experience. Sometimes I am up for the challenge, other times I just don't have the energy especially when I... More

We were exploring the Fairhaven area of Bellingham, WA and since we love Italian food it seemed like a good fit. We had a choice of inside or outside and we chose to sit outside next to the busy street because it was a beautiful day in Washington. I had one of the best lunches I have ever enjoyed. I... More

we've eaten here several times----I don't know why it's taken me til now to write the review. If busy is an indication of quality then this place gets high marks on that front---it's ALWAYS busy. At first glance you'll think the prices a tad high, but considering the quality of the meal, its a great value, because you can certainly... More

Amazing! Do yourself a favour and eat the Fettuccine Alfredo. I added chicken and mushrooms to mine and loved it! My husband ordered something else which was good, but not like mine. We rectified that situation by coming back the next night and both ordering the Fettucine. You will be soooo happy you did! At least there is never any... More

My husband and I were pleased with the pizza here. We ordered the plain, and it had fresh tomatoes and basil. The dough is homemade. It did not give us that heavy feeling that some pizza's leave one with.

The food was tasty and the decor delightful! Clean, relaxing, A+ server. What more could you want. After you eat stroll around Fairhaven to top off a lovely evening!
