We had our wedding reception here and I can't express how fantastic the food was and the level of service was above and beyond expectation. Lynne and her husband Andy are the perfect hosts and wonderful people and I would recommend anyone looking for a wedding venue in Merimbula to look no further than the Cheeky Mango! Thanks again for making our day so memorable!
And a special thanks to David for making my aunty's swoon. you took it in the humour that was intended.

We recently ate here on a Friday night, great food and great music. My two little boys (4 and 3) really got into the music and the food was not what you would expect at a cafe connected to the holiday park, it was definitely good restaurant quality but without the price tag.

Look forward to visiting again with the family next year.

Recently stayed at the Merimbula Beach Resort and Holiday park. Conveniently located next to reception is the licensed cafe, Cheeky Mango, which we found convenient to grab takeaway coffees from - however the only negative, and reason why we didn't stay long to listen to the live music or to eat there / while away an hour or so at the bar was that it wasn't air conditioned and the fans were inadequate. Quite oppressive and hot in the afternoon and evening. Perhaps it was because it was at end of holiday peak, the range of beers on offer was also quite depleted. Coffees were ok, not the best but then again not the worst have had.

Thank you for your constructive points and they will be addressed.
Climate control is probably one of the most important aspects in our customers comfort, and is something we are correcting hopefully with the park management in future for their park guests and our regular clientele. Thanks for pointing this out.
During peak season it is quite a job to stock a particular range of most anything and you are correct in the reason you have offered. Sometimes they just plain sell out...
Glad you like the coffee and having several baristas can create difference in personal tastes. Always good to let them know how particular you like it.
Thank you again. Happy travels.

This place is ok. Conveniently located in the Big 4 Merimbula Holiday park, so its swarming with beach goers and kids with no visible parent. Not sure what the fuss is about. The fish and chips are reasonable - had to wait 45 minutes for lunch when it wasn't that busy.

Dear Sir,
We are saddened you haven't had the same experience at our cafe as a majority of our clientele have done in the past. We have addressed the issues you have pointed out and will pass this on to our staff accordingly. Thank you for this feedback.
Our cafe is a ''mixed business'' as part of our contract with the holiday park and to meet certain obligations to all potential customers and park occupants. i.e an inclusion of a kiosk for delicious gelato and lollies etc that children do love. The holiday park has always been a fun place for families and children to enjoy. They often have to contend with older displeased adults who don't share the same enthusiasm for life unfortunately.
The emphasis that the majority of our satisfied clientele refer to are predominately the atmosphere transformation for live music nights and the exceptional a la carte menu that accompanies them.
We hope on your return we can serve you again on such an evening to truly experience what we can deliver. Thank you.

Sitting by the beach we met a local family who invited us to a night out @ Cheeky Mango...and oh what a night! Great company, friendly prompt service, scrumptious food and live entertainment provided by members of a local band called the Figmentz. What more could you ask for. Highly recommend spending a night out here while on holidaying in Merimbula.
