We stayed at the Mawimbi which was wonderful but we did not expect that our favorite place to eat would also be ….Mawimbi. There was very little reason to leave the site for food -- you simply could not have a better view or nicer servers.

I stayed at Mawimbi 5 days and ate there several times. Always fresh and delicious food. The service was fantastic.

We ate at the Barquito numerous times. The service is terrific! It is adorable - right on the beach - casual and always perfectly clean. The food is fresh and simple. I think we had margaritas or mojitos and guacamole every day! The ceviche was very good too.

We enjoyed a lunch here after driving by on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Even though the Mexico vs Holland World Cup game was going on, we still had excellent service and great food. Shrimp tacos top the list of our favorites!

Pretty restaurant conveniently . Good breakfast with a pretty good espresso coffee (being Italian I am anal about my espresso!). Not bad either for lunch and or dinner. Free wi-fi highly appreciated.

Food served piping hot and all meals excellent. You are right on the beach and can watch the water / spectacular sunsets. Very relaxing. We went into town a few times for variety but preferred Barquito Mawimbi over all others.

The food at Mawimbi is nice enough but wasn't the best that we had on the island. It is good though for digging your feet in the sand.

The casual beach atmosphere, good food and the great views make this place tops for enjoying a meal. We were there for lunch on a windy day, so we sat inside behind a plate glass window that still allowed us to see the great views. The floor was still beach sand so we dug our toes in. I had the...

We sat and had some long drinks in this cool bar. Music that fitted the beach view and some nice guys here too. What a wonderful world.

Francisco never seems to disappoint us at Mawimbi's. He is very hard working serving beverages and meals to his guests. The Azteca soup was delicious and the shrimp dinner was very good. The lighting and ambiance is soothing and the music is always tasteful. The owners are onsite and always take the time to greet you. Another memorable experience.
