Actually a very nice restaurant in the Matachica Resort, were we ate several times. The service was very uneven. With Felipe we had an excellent waiter, others were too nonchalant, which does not fit the image of the restaurant. The food, however, is only average...More

Located a coconut throw to the sea, the view and ambiance was second to none, service good, and food good. Had a fish dish with a bottle of wine and both were good. The romantic setting wins! The water taxi transport service was a great...More

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
