This is located in the quaint Fairhaven section of Bellingham. It is very noisy in the front section of this restaurant - suggest asking for a table in the back. Chicken piccata was very good. Meatballs and spagetti was good.

Mambo is a beautiful little spot near the center of oldtown Fairhaven. The menu, food, staff, and service were all good. The dining room is full of local art. Teens and adults were happy. We would definitely return.

My wife and I have been dining here for years. We havce only had pasta dishes. We think it is the best in Bellingham. Very casual. High noise level.

They have many salads, especially the steak salad. I would think they could make chicken alfredo with veggies, as it's just garlic, butter, cream, parmesan cheese with chicken, veggies. Skip the noodles or serve over rice... More
