Cafe Mambo was recommended by friends and it didn't disappoint! Food was very good and the atmosphere was relaxed, laid back open air restaurant with a bohemian feel to it.

We ate here during a storm and had a good food while waiting out the rain. Some local specialities & good beer choices.

Came here for lunch on a Wednesday. Aloha burger and duck burgers were very good. Island shrimp plate and seafood soup were also good. Our server was fast and very nice. Atmosphere is nice but the music is loud and seems to be all the slow and boring pop hits from 2012-2015. Other than that it was a very enjoyable... More

We were pleased with our food, but it is really hard to have a conversation over the music. The waitresses were hard working and pleasant but it isn't a fast meal. The duck salad deserves it's good reputation, it is lean and tasty.

Went there on our last night in Maui after a disappointing disaster at Mamas Fish House. This place was a find. Very affordable. Food was delicious! However there were way too many chips and not enough fish in fish and chips. Had delicious island shrimp that was gluten free

While in Paia checking out Mana Foods grocery store, we stopped in here for a late lunch. Duck fajitas were good. This is a popular local place.

We have eaten here a few times and always had good food. I had a duck salad that was delicious and everyone's sandwiches or plates were good. Nothing particularly fancy here but good food, good drinks, a fun vibe and good value.

We had breakfast here before visiting the shops in the area. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Coffee, hot chocolate and food served relatively quickly and was delicious.

We visited at lunchtime and I had apparently looked online at their dinner menu which had more vegetarian options. Our friendly server brought me the dinner menu and offered to serve quite a few of the vegetarian options since they weren't slammed. I thought that was very nice of her! We had a fantastic salad and veggie quesadilla and really... More
