Went there because the place in front had too much waiting time and we were starving. Were seated right away waitress took our order fast but took more than an hour to be served. She got visibly upset when we asked how much longer it was going to take. Gave my mother in law the wrong order didnt even apologize... More

We had not been to Mako's in a while. Went to lunch and enjoyed my lobster filled mofongo. Their food is always consistently good.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my friend birthday. The food came quick. I had Lobster with coconut arepas, the Lobster which although fresh had no seasoning. It was tasteless.Not extremely good.We were not impressed at all, so going here will definitely not be something we look forward to in the future.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday, the waiter was so off I cant even explain, she answered her cellphone while serving, my stepdad asked if they have any "not fried" sides and she said no, when looking at the menu there were alternatives to give him. The food came quick, it was ok, not extremely good. We... More

Went to El Mako on Sept. 6th, to celebrate husband's birthday, first visit. This area is always busy, especially on weekend, and now more since El Malecón is under remodeling. Arrived by 2pm, place was full of customers, and kept coming in, so we figured food must be good. Not true at all; food was "alright" yet very pricey. Had... More

I took my family to Los Makos for a birthday dinner. The place is nice, cozy and has a very home feel to it. The prices are a bit expensive. However, they serve the best stuffed lobster that I have had in a very long time. Wow great fish broth (caldo de pescado) as well. The service was good. If... More

Went there on Fathers day whit my mother and stepfather to eat. The restaurant is very elegant, staff friendly and willing to take care of people, Big FREE parking, Great Food, Good price on plates, beer and drinks. Recommend you to go early on weekends because the place and roads get packed,and specially on holidays.

I've been a lot to this restaurant. The problem with it is that they are not consistent with the good food. By this I mean maybe one time you will visit and the food would be spectacular and flavorful and another day the food would be flavorless and not good. Eitherway the lobster is very good here. Beware its very... More

Description
Best lobster I have ever had! Amazing restaurant near the ocean. I had Garlic Lobster (unbelievable!), and those I dined with had lobster salads as well as conch. They also had a fresh fruit punch that was very good.

Hard to find online - only found it on a competitive travel site :) referred to in a B&B review.
