We stopped at Cafe Mambo for a drink and appetizer. When we arrived, we ordered pina coladas - which was good. When we looked at the menu, not much jumped out at us so we decided to scrap the appetizer and finish our coladas. We...More

We had dinner here recently, and it was a mixed bag. The crispy duck was very good, and the lamb stew was very bad - overcooked and flavorless. It is also very noisy. We will not go back.

What a peaceful cafe we ate lunch here during our vacation. The vibrant colors and open air make for an amazing experience. We had the organic steak sandwich which was amazingly tender and tasty.

Several years ago, we found Café Mambo in Paia for Breakfast after the early day going to Haleakala. Excellent. Since then, we go there every time we are in Maui, which is at least once a year. We like Café Mambo so much, we go...More
