We arrived late (hummm, 8pm), and we were the last ones. The plates came in a rush, and it was not fantastic. Just good for a "late" dinner. Staff was friendly, but the taste was not that good, with beef patties well too cooked and...More

The easy-going atmosphere and friendly servers welcome you to try the menu that includes mouth-watering Crispy Duck or Kailua Pork. This is definitely one of the best eateries on Maui's north coast for local organic produce. Stop in for breakfast if you are on the...More

Wow it was great! Sandwich was fresh and tasty, burger was super, and fajitas were fantastic. Service was good, too! The décor is fun. This is a great place to eat while in Paia town. We will go back!

My wife and I ate here twice and I had the duck fajitas each time. She was more adventurous and tried something new each day (though I forget what she had). We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and would highly recommend stopping there for a bit...More

Food here was fabulous and lots of it. Cafe Mambo is known for their crispy duck tacos, and now I know why. IT’S DELICIOUS! Be prepare to pay $$ for drinks, or limit yourself. Definitely a return visit is needed. Dress is very casual.
