Good food here and the island flavored drinks were delicious. They have live music during the evenings and in general this place is a fun place to hang out.

Before we left Maui, we needed to eat before catching a flight. So many places were overcrowded with lines out the door. We turned up the street in Paia only to find this cafe with one table left, as if they'd saved it for us. The kids' menu is extremely expensive. $9 for a cheeseburger & fries is outrageous. We...

Each item ordered was tasty. The atmosphere casual and loud. Live guitar player/singer was enjoyable.

Ok. We eat all out all the time. Tonight we felt like revisiting Mambo as it had been a while. It's a Monday night in October, Paia is somewhat quiet. Just us at the Mambo bar, LOVING the mahi mahi fajitas and chardonnay, friendly down home wait help and the Paia scene passing by the open to the street big... More

We had two couples visit for lunch on Oct 17th. The food was OK, the margaritas were terrible. I had an aloha burger which was quite tasty, my wife had the shrimp sandwich which was also quite tasty. Service was a 3. Surroundings were a 3.

My husband and I loved the duck fajitas! Delicious and unique. My daughter ordered the burger and declared it 'best on the island'. The staff is great, it's a casual relaxing environment. We came here several times on our visit to Maui because we liked it so much. Be sure to visit Ho'okipa Beach and see the sea turtles, while... More

We got a late start to road to Hana so we decided to get a late lunch and take our time. The new plan was for us to just go as far as we could after we got done eating and then we would go back the following day and complete the entire drive back to Kihei. That's how we... More

Had a nice lunch and Lava Flow drink here after our bike ride down Haleakala. This place was a recommendation by our bike tour guide as having the best burgers in town. Definitely worth it.

Had lunch at Café Mambo. They were not real busy, maybe 2 other tables had customers. My husband had the blue burger which he said was very good. I had a salad which was average. But, even though they were not busy, they were very slow. It took about 10 minutes just to get service to order beverages, and another... More
