We came yesterday as a party of four with our two dogs. From start to finish made to feel extremely welcome from the attentive and friendly staff. We all loved our meals and there is a great and varied range to choose from and very...good prices. This is not our first visit to Mambo's but it won't be our last. One of our favourite places to go. It has a lovely vibe. Thank you again for looking after us.More

Absolutely disgraceful place. Recently came here, staff where extremely laid back. Throwing things at eachother infront of customers. Clearly standing watching me and my partner eating and then talking to eachother and sniggering, made us feel very uncomfortable. Waited for service for a very long...time. Staff watched us eat and continued to watch us wait for the bill, with bank card in hand. After waiting 15/20 minutes for the bill (there was no tables in at this point) a member of staff decided to shout across the restaurant/bar asking us if we would like our bill instead of coming over like any other establishment would do. I wouldn’t recommend at all. Worst experience and place to go in Aviemore!!More

Hosted a large gathering at Mambo's on their second floor. The service was outstanding and atmosphere was very conducive to having a great time. I highly recommend Mambo's for small or large events!

We absolutely loved our burgers and loaded fries from Mambos - service was quick and staff were really friendly too. Catered perfectly to my boyfriend who is coeliac!

The family visited Mambos twice on our visit to Aviemore as it was the only place in town able to accomodate us (we hadn't booked anywhere for dinner and other places were busy/closed). We were very glad we stumbled across it! A range of burgers,...hot dogs, nachos and snacks, all delicious and large portions at a reasonable price, also arrived quickly after ordering. Staff were quite casual but incredibly kind and friendly.More

Came in for a few drinks and a small plate after a busy day before an evening reservation elsewhere. We were tempted to stay for dinner but didn't want to cancel our other booking at short notice - the food looked very lovely. The staff...were friendly and everything was reasonably priced.More

My two friends and I popped in here for a cocktail. Cocktails were beautiful and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxed. Before we knew it a couple of hours had gone by and the whole place came to life! The music was awesome. Staff were...super smiley and had so much time for us despite being run off thier feet. Not a bad vibe to be found. Everyone was enjoying themselves, singing and dancing. The kind of place you walk in to and make friends with everyone there. The door staff were absolutely incredible and I could have talked to them all night. We will be travelling back down to Aviemore soon! Thank you ❤️More

This is a little gem!! It is very clean, the food is amazing and the two men working the bar were really helpful and friendly. It’s a burger/hot dog bar, but my god they do them well. We arrived and they were able to seat...13 of us over a few tables but were brilliant. The nachos are huge and the quesadilla were gorgeous, really didn’t need the chips with it. Everyone else had burgers or hot dogs and not a morsel was left!More

Went in today for a late lunch , no track and trace taken , no where to even sign in . Staff weren't wearing masks , none of the 3 wee saw . Bending over our table , we were disgusted. If we hadn't been...starving we wouldn't have stayed . Travelled about 2.5 hours. Food was good though , quite quick . Wasn't impressed with the stairs going to the toilets. Was not good for my elderly parents . We certainly won't be back .More
