So far we had not been overtly impressed by the restaurants we visited in Guadeloupe until we came across this gem today.

We had the menu for lunch. Usually when we ordered a lunch menu before, the portions were rather on the smaller side. Not so here: a typical starter followed by a huge grilled fish with rice and salad and as a desert either banana flambé or ice cream.

The whole menu came to Euro 16 and it tasted superb.

The service was very friendly and fast.

Highly recommended!

Situated on the ocean side of the main road just south of La Route Traversee, there are nice sea views to go with the prime quality Creole food — food that has an authentic vibe. We had the “special” for €16 each, consisting of Accras Morue as starters, goat stew/snapper as mains, and banana flambé for dessert, aflame with local rum. No WiFi, decent toilet. Good service. The place looks plain, but the food is not. Worth a special stop.

We arrived without reservation and the restaurant was pretty full. Still the host managed to find us a nice table. Charming informal service and good food. Recommended.

We know this place since years and come back every time when we are in Basse Terre (even when we are located in Grande Terre - the other side of the island). Quality is very good, service is nice, the cat very played back. We have been warmly welcomed after 2 years absence.

We pulled off the road into the Le Mambo parking lot while taking a tour along the leeward coast of Basse Terre. We were immediately greeted and made to feel welcome. Our French is rusty and Creole is non-existent, still, our hostess did her best to take our order and make sure we understood what we ordered. We tried the poulet columbo and the cabri columbo - slightly spicy Caribbean dishes featuring chicken and goat meat served with side, a mild rice and vegetable dish. Interesting and tasty. We lingered on the pleasant open porch and enjoyed a nice glass of Bordeaux - all good. The people were very friendly and the atmosphere was cheerful. Try this place.
