Excellent, best place in Manzanillo, order a "rondom" or a rice and beans...they have the best rondom in the area. In front of the beach.

The food was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxed, except for one night when there was extremely loud club music downstairs blaring and shaking the whole place.

Great food, great people, great memories. The Red Snapper is one I will return for someday, hopefully soon!

Maxi's is in a fabulous location and was apparently an equally fabulous restaurant at one time. I understand that ownership changed at some point in the not too distant past and the restaurant's quality has declined. Our experience was consistent with this information. My husband ordered fried rice with shrimp. The fried rice was almost tasteless and the shrimp were the smallest we've seen with the exception of just one normally sized shrimp. The vegetables that came with it were similarly bland. I had the shrimp salad which, again, featured the tiniest shrimp imaginable. Each entree was over $10--horribly overpriced. Service was OK and I suspect that Maxi's will continue to do good business based on its past reputation and the fact that there is virtually no competition at its location. Unfortunately, that gives little incentive for there to be an improvement in the quality of the food. We will not return.

Love going to this restaurant after swimming and enjoying the beach in Manzanillo. Also love the little calico cat that lives there! Good bar food. And cold beer. Can't go to Manzanillo without stopping in at Maxis.
