We really enjoyed our meal at Mambo's. It was by far the best meal we had during our 10 day visit to Ambergris Caye. We had the crab stuffed grouper, ceviche and chocolate lava cake. The restaurant picked us up at our resort by boat and dropped us off again. The staff here were super friendly (although the manager was a little uptight). There is a nice gift shop here too.

We stayed at Matachica so we at at Mambo's several times for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Breakfast was very good. Ouevos rachis, omelettes, were excellent, but the complimentary breakfast was very good as well. The pancakes were not as impressive as I hoped.

Recommendations for dinner: anything pasta - they make it fresh right before dinner (we tried to order it for lunch one day but it wasn't ready yet). That said, we aren't crazy seafood type. (I know, weird to come to Belize to eat pasta...)

We have dined at Mambo several times and every time we go we are never disappointed. This restaurant is located at the Mata Chica Resort north of town and if you call and make dinner reservations they will send a boat to pick you up for free - very fun. You can sit inside the main dining room which is decorated really cool (hard to describe) or sit on the open air patio with view of the sea. They always have the freshest seafood prepared in very interesting ways and every meal we have there is perfect. They also have a good wine list and the bartender makes incredible mojitos. A definite must for a special dinner while in San Pedro!

we had the freshest, most succulent lime grouper, snapper, and belizean lobster ever. so delicious. the servers were very polite, nice, and gracious. i could have eaten these dishes over and over again, and not gotten tired because it was that fresh and good.

Wonderful local cuisine, great staff, and a very laid back atmosphere, perfect for a dinner after our day's adventures. We stay at La Perla del Caribe and it's about an 8 minute walk down the beach. We've dined here a number of times and always look forward to coming back.
