Excellent place to relax after kite-sessions. And very good party on Fridays ! Located on the beach. Have your drink whilst hearing the waves. Very friendly staff

Picture that perfect beach bar where you sit with your feet in the sand overlooking a turqoise lagoon - then you have found Jambos! Cool sounds and the friendliest staff all contribute to chilled island vibes. If you're looking for a bit more action Friday nights are party nights at Jambo where you can catch local and international DJ's. Want... More

Try the calamari, it is seriously good. And also speak with the owner who is passionate about local and environmental issues..

We arrived at Jambos and found Waves restaurant. If this is one of the same, we were impressed with the quality of the food and price. The service was a little chaotic (there were only 2 other people and us 2 there!), but once we got through the language barrier the food was lovely. The restaurant is on the beach... More

The most excellent little beach bar becomes the maddest party place on Friday night. Ate the BBQ once, don't recommend it at all but have drank to excess and danced like a mad man here so many times I lost count. Always a guaranteed winning Friday night! Over the past year the prices have increased but it's worth it still.

Contrary to the previous post, I must comment that we loved Jambo Bar and its people. Yes, the food took a while, but they went out and brought everything fresh that you ordered, then had it prepared in another hut. We went everyday for the 10 days we were on Paje. Perfect place,cool hosts, loved Biali, Fire and everyone. It... More

After researching extensively we discovered this bar/restaraunt which had the highest rating in almost every category. Unfortunately, the reality was quite the opposite. We ordered the chicken burger and a plate of calamri with fries - the chicken burger was actually a chicken breast piece forced between two pieces of bread, no garnish, no mayo no nothing. the calamari was...

The Jambo bar is the place to be every Friday night. Here the locals come to dance, Jambo style and you can dance the night away or simply sit down and enjoy the atmosphere.
