Enjoyable Lunch!!

We stopped at the Cafe Mambo for lunch. The place was very busy. The staff were pleasant and accommodating. My family of 4 had 2 Island Fish sandwiches, 1 pork plate and 1 Mambo Bacon Burger. Everything was very good. With drinks and tip our bill was $82. Their fryer was broken the day we were... read more

After seeing reviews, I think we at the wrong meal here. Came for dinner, but should have eaten breakfast. Service was absolutely wonderful, but food disappointing. The fish in the tacos was tough.

We was just riding around Paia and was looking for lunch. It was still early around 1030 am. They let us order off the lunch menu too. I hit the Blt, it was really good. It had a tomato salsa mayo on it that was really good. I got the home fries also and the onions were really a added... More

We make an annual visit to Charley's for breakfast. Unfortunately, we arrived after breakfast was being served. Upon their recommendation we ran around the corner to Cafe Mambo for breakfast, unfortunately they too had stopped serving breakfast. Upon seeing the , soon to be tear filled eyes of our disappointed 9 year old, they made a exception (for 1 only... More

The food was nice, the service was great, just the portion wasn't big enough for my hubby after a day of surfing and kitesurfing. I liked and for my taste was fine.

Great food and reasonable prices in Paia! French toast, breakfast burrito, and pancakes were all great and worth the 45 minute drive from Wailea. Cool surf town with lots to see.

Good value and good quality food in a quaint environment - especially after the ride down the mountain, quite a while since breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful

Cafe Mambo is a great place to stop in Paia, if you are looking for a quick and casual meal. They offer a nice variety of menu options and bring your food to you within 10-15 minutes of ordering. I stopped at Cafe Mambo with a group of seven people after we did the bike ride down Mount Haleakala. Our... More
