Award-Winning Cuisine

Local ingredients, fresh flavors and creative dishes—our food is second to none, which is why Mambo restaurant has become a destination in its own right. In addition to our guests, travelers throughout Ambergris Caye seek out our restaurant to enjoy its exceptional cuisine, creative cocktails and sophisticated wine list.

Inspired by local flavors and by our natural surroundings, fresh seafood is our specialty. In our romantic, candlelit dining room, guests can dine on delicious dishes such as ceviche, caramelized mango shrimp, whole roasted fish and our famous chocolate soufflé. We offer a varied menu and can easily accommodate requests for vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free meals.

As an homage to the resort’s original Italian owner, our menu has retained a Mediterranean flair—our chef makes our pastas by hand daily, with love and quality ingredients. Freshness is of the utmost importance which is why we source most of our produce from local farmers and from our own organic garden at GAÏA Riverlodge, our sister resort. Pair your dishes with a bottle from our extensive and diverse wine list. Enjoy your meal in Mambo’s sleek and sultry ambiance. For our guests who want a more secluded, romantic dining experience, we offer private dinners on your patio or at the end of our pier, overlooking the Caribbean Sea at sunset—an ideal way to enjoy your Belizean beach vacation.

We also invite you to enjoy refreshments with a view at Danny’s Tree Bar, our newest addition serving up cocktails and light bites right on the beach against the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea. These little touches make a big impact on your dining experience. Delicious is in the details.
