Was the best we had this trip. Call them and get the times for sure but I think the Mata Chica boat brings staff in at 5PM and then returns around 6:30 to Mata Chica (from fidos dock). We stayed until almost 10 PM and returned with staff at that time. Great food! Chris or Charlie will probably be the captain on the boat just ask they will take care of you.
We regret not doing Portofino this time, but I think they will include transportation as well. Always Good.

you know how work-avoidant i can be in the spring ~ i'd read the yellow pages to fill an hour! a boat ride and good food and great company. rumors of a full moon during our stay... i must have been really, really good in a former life!

We were there in March, the service and food was excellent.
Water taxi will get you there and back, you may want to try
Rojo or Portofino, We enjoyed all three. Of course the one barrel
rum punch to go jug is a must.

I was at Mambo a couple weeks ago with a group and had to say none of us were impressed. The food in relation to the price was way off. The bar drinks were really good but small for $14US a drink! Great atmosphere though.

Just to be fair, the restaurant was very busy so we may be the only ones that feel this way...

Mambo is definitely chic. But very snooty or Euro trashy, not to friendly and very expensive. Rojo is more of the beachy elegance I personally enjoy.
