While staying at Matachica Hotel, we've dined at their Mambo Restaurant almost every night. The food is phenomenal. I am not a vegetarian, nor do I pretend to be, but their ravioli appetizer is awesome. It's homemade pasta stuffed with eggplant, ricotta and zucchini. Topped with homemade marinara sauce and a light sprinkling of cheese. Its very tasty and probably the best I've ever had. They have several dishes that are on my all-time favorites list. The mango pork chops are awesome amongst several other awesome dishes. Service is always spot-on. Food is prepared very quickly and always right. Do yourself a favor and have breakfast, lunch and dinner at Mambo!

They had a great selection of appetizers, entrees, and desserts! The lime stuffed grouper and scallops were especially delicious. The prices were quite high though, as we were spending about $100 to $120 per meal (2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, 1 cocktail, 1 fruit juice).

The staff were very friendly and attentive. And I loved the seashells on the tables that the staff collected.

Amazing seafood and dessert, fun atmosphere for dinner. Worth the trip up the Caye if you're not staying at Matachica already. Also have a wide variety of delicious cocktails at the bar!

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.

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!
