Mambo was one of our favorite restaurants on Ambergris Caye! Our dinner was delicious and everything was presented beautifully. Their water taxi will pick you up and drop you off if you are at another resort which was great. We will definitely be returning!

Sat in the bar facing the sea and had a hot breakfast served with fresh fruit in minutes. Short bike ride south of X' tan Ha Resort. Awesome food.

A short boat ride from our resort, followed by excellently prepared fresh grouper in a gorgous outdoor setting. A great way to end a vacation.

This is a terrific place for lunch/dinner. Right on the beach. We make a point of having at least one meal here every time we visit. Again, the staff is great.

We had our best meal at Mambos. The bartender served up great drinks and even knew what a skinny girl margarita was. I'm giving it 4 stars because the food was a bit pricey.
