“Very high quality food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were staying at Matachica so ate at Mambo throughout our stay. The prices were high, but the quality made this justifiable. Lunch and Dinner are better than the breakfasts. The Pizzas are especially good on the lunch time menu.The food was fabulous. The crab stuffed grouper is one of the most amazing meals I have ever eaten. The steak was cooked perfectly. My husband (who had been comparing Key Lime Pie throughout our trip) had the key lime pie almost every night!). The chocolate souffle was worth waiting for!
Also if you get a table at the front of the restaurant it overlooks the beach, from which we saw the most amazing storm over the sea.
Would definately recommend.

“Dance often Belizian fusion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Excellent fusion cuisine with great service. The fish was to die for. And they pick you up and drop off of at your resort. Nice touch! Really great evening. We even ran into our waiter on a flight back after an excursion. He remembered us and wanted us to have a fabulous trip....... And to come back! Again. Great country and even better people!

“The Pinnacle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Excellent food & beverage.beautiful presentations, knownlegable chef. He understood my gluten allergy.and would work with it. Belizian lobster is now our favorite. If you were taking the boat back to your hotel, sometimes you were rushed and could not relax to enjoy the complete experience if you wanted wine, appetizers and dessert. Even if you had reservations. This only happened to us once

“Twice in three days!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We heard great things about Mambo and we're so glad we checked it out. We were not staying at Matachica resort, but they sent a boat to pick us up - both times! We liked it so much the first time, we went back two days later for our final dinner in Belize. The whole staff was warm and welcoming - and they remembered us from our first visit. Myra was our server (both times!) and she was so sweet and a lot of fun. I ordered the Deep Blue as my entree both times... I'm still thinking about it. - it was that good. Everything we ordered was incredible - fresh, flavorful. When I come back to Ambergris Caye, Mambo is on my list!
