“Awesome Breakfast, Cheap!”
Reviewed July 2, 2008

We had breakfast at Cafe Mambo. Great breakfast for two for under $20. I had the breakfast burrito - so filling that I didn't even eat lunch. The pancakes were very tasty too!

“Great food, beautifully presented”
Reviewed March 20, 2008

We stopped in here for dinner after driving "The Road to Hana." The restaurant is decorated with colorful paintings and they play island music that's loud enough to hear but not loud enough to be annoying. Everything we ordered was fresh, well-prepared, nicely-seasoned and beautifully presented. My only criticism was that our server was not exactly on the ball, which may have been due to a lack of experience waiting tables. However, the food was wonderful, the atmosphere fun and the cost very reasonable.

We'd eat here again anytime.

“Great fresh food in Paia”
Reviewed March 13, 2008

While staying in Haiku, we ate at a number of Paia restaurants, and Cafe Mambo was one we went back to a second time. Had great pork fajitas, with all kinds of goodies to put on top, and a great side salad. One order was enough for both my husband and I. Also I had a great drink made with mangos, one of my favorite tropical fruits. Great food, fun artwork, friendly wait staff. Oh, and if you're taking your family into a small restaurant in a hip town like Paia, you need to accept that the wait staff may not be dressed like the waiters in the high cost restaurants on the resort side of the island.

Reviewed January 25, 2008

Cafe Mambo was really wonderful ~! Staff and owner's were lovely and I do not forget when a restaurant makes such a great effort with quality ingredients. The duck salad was off the charts~! Don't miss this fine little restaurant.
