Whilst everything on Ambergris Caye is unnecessarily expensive, the food at mambo restaurant is excellent. If you can, get them to pick you up by their complimentary water taxi - the captain is lovely. Staff here are very welcoming and will do all they can...More

Outdoor fun with bar, cushioned couches and great food and drinks. This place is worth heading outa bit north on the island for some music and hanging with a large group or just yourself.

The ambiance and food at Mambo was really outstanding. The quality of the food was excellent and the wait staff were attentive but not overpowering. The resort itself looks lovely - so lovely that if we come back to AC, I'd love to stay there.

You cant beat the atmosphere of this restaurant. It is a high-end tropical motif. The service was excellent. The food was very good, but slightly bland. The location is quite far from town.

Food was okay. Service was a bit overblown and pricey. We had better food at Coco Cabana a mile or so closer to San Pedro. The road is terrible but navigable. The hotel looked wonderful. We won't go back next time were on Ambergris

Mambo is the only restaurant we ate at twice. The food was delicious and we were seated outside both times. A little on the expensive side, but worth it. They picked us up in a boat from our resort (X’Tan Ha) and took us back...More

On another visit to Ambergris Caye, our first being in 1991, we stayed well north of the town and the road was in horrible shape from recent rains, so we were happy to find this place near our digs. Located in high end Matachica Resort,...More
