The restaurant is awesome, food is fantastic. The cost is a little high but worth the ambiance. If you are looking for the total experience, this is the place. We will go back in November 2014.

While staying at Matachica Hotel, we've dined at their Mambo Restaurant almost every night. The food is phenomenal. I am not a vegetarian, nor do I pretend to be, but their ravioli appetizer is awesome. It's homemade pasta stuffed with eggplant, ricotta and zucchini. Topped...More
