My wife really enjoys Cuban food. So we decided to give it a try. Overall the food was pretty good and had a good taste. The staff was friendly and the place is well kept.

Food was amazing, the coffee was so good I came back the next day just for that. Service was great, maybe slightly slow but that was just because we were in a hurry to catch a movie. Overall definitely one to keep coming back too

Wife and I just had dinner there while visiting Mayo Clinic. The Cubanita pizza was excellent. Empanadas were great -- not greasy even though deep-fried. Staff was friendly and attentive, and helped each other to keep service prompt. Nice Cuban music. Easy to get into the shopping center. No negatives at all. Maybe the only problem is that the extensive... More

My husband and I have been eating at Mambos ever since we discovered their Mayport location. Their fried pork chunks and shredded pork is marinated in their homemade mojo liquid which is delicious.

Finally a man came and took our order as we had waited long enough to know what we wanted. My husband ordered ice tea which he never got. I ordered the yuca and got plantains.... More

This wonderful gem of a restaurant makes me wish I was born of Cuban heritage. The food is nothing less than truly truly amazing. Food comes in generous portions with very authentic flair. The service is excellent. It is one of the few restaurants I go to regularly where there is not a big turnover in staff - which is... More
