“Maxi's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Only bested by the fact their chef went solo. As always reliable, delicious food, drinks and service. A great football bar when games are on the television and a great place to watch the beach crowd and surf while sipping a juicy cocktail.

“wasn't satisfied”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Went twice and both times the food wasn't great and pretty pricey. There are so many other good restaurants to eat at that cost less. We wont be going back to Maxi's..

“Pricey but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Caribbean food served beach front.
Unfortunatly too pricey. For having rice&beans, patacones, ceviche, you cannot pay that much.

“Just get the snapper.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The service is very slow and borders on rude. If I could find another place that made such delicious red snapper, I wouldn't cart myself out there all the way from puerto viejo. The location is beautiful, and the snapper is delicious, so I will continue to go and hope the staff gets some retraining.

“Delicious tropical food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I visited this place with my friends, the service was fun, the waiter was a fun gentleman. The "ceviche" was delicious and I would come back for sure
