We enjoyed dinner with new friends from South Africa. They made delicious, original cocktail and good food. More of a Mexican fusion restaurant, not quit authentic but really good. Located in exciting Byward market area in Ottawa. Music was also fantastic.

For months I was trying to think of a special place for my girlfriend's 30th birthday. I could not have chosen a better place than the Mambo. We were a goup of 18 people and are picky when it comes to restaurants. Not often I can say that we all were just amazed by not only the the food but also the service. Being 18 people, some of us order plates which included steaks (I say included since there was a lot more than a steak!) and everyone got theirs cooked to perfection (ranging form medium to rare). Other plates (including tapas) were just excellent. Our server (and one other lady) just added to that special evening by being there most of the night just to ensure we had what ever we needed (funny & and very polite/patient). We have been to the Mambo before for lunches (which is also great) but will definitely consider this place for future events or just a romantic dinner. The private room downstairs is just awsome if you are planning a group dinner.

It is a problem to find good cuisine in Ottawa if you come from Europe. Their food is surprisingly tasteless. But the steaks in Mambo are a positive exception to this rule. The choice of side dishes was also great. I can recommend pasta in blue cheese sauce, they also serve very tasty alcohol-free cocktails.

One of the locations for a Fashion Reel video I was shooting was in a restaurant. So we called Mambo and management were more than happy to accomodate us. The manager Claira was the one of the sweetest person I've ever come across..not only gave me food coupons but green lighted every request I had. The tapas were amazing and the Sunday $5 margaritas were much appreciated by the female models :) Will definitely return, can't thank you enough.
