We were seated very quickly because we asked to eat.... worth every penny! Champagne Sangria was great and the food was perfect. You have to visit Cafe Mambo on any visit to Ibiza!!

I had always wanted to go to Ibiza to see the sunset with someone I loved, I did it this year finally, and it was a life changing moment for me. I don't know how to explain it other than it was like coming home. The music from the restaurant, the collective calm and appreciation for a magnificent sunset all seemed to gel into a magical experience, who I for one will want to do again and again. If you ask or read any other comment about Ibiza, they would generally have the same thread individually. There is nothing to compare to the serenity of sitting outside the cafe as the sun is about to set on the horizon and the millions of shades of red cascading down onto the crowd gathered on the rocks and on the seats in and around the cafe to witness just the end of the day as happens every day, but not everywhere is Ibiza, not everyone has that central aura of calm, inner peace, and that the world for all its ills is indeed a magical place, and the music plays behind you setting a completely captivating Son et Lumière moment that will haunt you and stay with you forever. Its stayed with me and like the many others who have preceded and followed my visit, will do so again. Our evening started with a meal that was light and filling and served by friendly faces who you could see were happy and very proud to be working there as it is a world landmark, as is the cafe next door - cafe del mar, the competition of the music balanced themselves and sometime gave the very weirdest good mix, it was odd but it was right. I will be back again next year and the year after. Ibiza has magic away from the young and foolhardy that throng the nightclubs there, I also want to just once take part in a visit to pacha or space or wherever the music carries me, but I promise when I do, my journey will start at Cafe Mambo - Así que me encanta esta isla y este lugar

I've never been to Ibiza before Aug 2013 but was told about Mambos and it's sunset view! It's a must for anyone going to Ibiza even if it's not your first time! It sets the start of your night up with the atmosphere, music, views and the general buzz of the place with Dj's from the clubs guest appearing it's something to experience and get involved with! I e-mailed Cafe Mambo to get a reservation and got a reply from Lara who was most helpful and kept me upto date with my reservation and gave me all local information as well,being that it was my first time in Ibiza. Soon as arrived went up to a couple of the hosts and said I had a reservation, and my name was all on the list and we got great seats as requested. it's a must for friends or couples and even family!

I visit mambos every time I goto Ibiza and reserve a sunset table in advance, everything about the place is incredible from the music to the amazing food.
The sunset tune is always a classic and never fails to impress, if your reading this and have never been I seriously urge you to go.
Looking forward to my next visit in May already.

We have nothing but praise for the staff of Mambo’s. I was in conversation with them several months before our visit to the island in preparation for my proposal. They supplied their own photographer and got some brilliant pictures of me getting down on one knee with the sun setting, they also went to the trouble of putting candles out on the table and helping me through the nerves. They made the night absolutely perfect and can’t thank them enough. Special thanks to Claire & Lara. Much love

Good food, amazing place, has to be done when in Ibiza, standard…
