Cafe Mambo Maui has been serving locals and tourists on the funky surfer town of Paia since 2003. The Maui Times readers have voted us "Best Lunch" and "Best Burger" and we have mantained since the beginning excellent ratings at Zagat, Tripadvisor, Yelp and other customers' reviews websites. In 2011, we opened our second location in Westhampton Beach, New York. Cafe Mambo Hamptons will be expanding in 2013 to double the size of its outdoor patio area in order to better accommodate the tremendous success we are experiencing on the East Coast. Jamie and Olga Betham, the husband and wife team behind Cafe Mambo hope you enjoy our eclectic menu with the best dishes from their travels around the world. And don't forget to try a bit of Hawaiian Aloha in the form of a chilled Maui Brewing Co. beer on draft.

    Like everyone we had to have crispy duck fajitas. Excellent. Very generous portions and the presentation was very good. Facilitated making them how we wanted. A little snooping, and all the food looked good. Price a steal for Maui in a real little beach town a la Oregon coast villages. Service was bit apathetic but ok. Drinks seemed a bit off in their taste. Nothing that would keep me from going back, and we certainly will return.

    When we arrived, we were able to select a table of our choice as it wasn't busy at all at 7pm. It did pick up thereafter. The Crispy Duck Fajitas were great, as was the Burger. What I really liked was the Coconut Creme Brulee...nice, rich cold coconut custard with a warm, crispy layer of caramelized sugar.

    Cafe Mambo was a fun find. Classic dishes with an island twist. My son loved his Mambo burger. My husband and I had the fajitas (tuna and local fish). The tuna was so good it was tough to want to put toppings on it. All in all it was a great value and excellent food. One note - Pa'ia feels a little darker and less safe in the evening then other locations on Maui. When we go again, I will try to park closer to the center of town in well lit areas.

    It was our first visit to the restaurant and it is a casual fun location in Paia. Very casual and good food. Service was a little slow, but personnel were sweet and nice. Food was awesome and we had a lot of duck: Nachos with Duck; Duck Burger, Duck Fajitas and 1 regular bacon cheeseburger. Everyone loved their food. We will be back.

    The steak and fish fajitas were amazing, even had enough for lunch the next day. The service was fast and friendly. The drinks were also very yummy especially the coconut vodka, pineapple with fresh lime and soda water. Must eat here.

    Small place in surfer town of Paia. Good drinks, very good food. Mostly bar type foods, sandwiches , salads, burgers, quesadillas, fajitas. All were excellent and very fresh, locally sourced when possible. Friendly service. Gluten free options in fajitas and salads. Casual to very casual attire.
