“Quite below the expectations”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I read a lot about Maxi's Restaurant while planning our trip to the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. So we were really looking forward to having dinner there. Nobody cared when we arrived. Every server acted very busy although it was not crowded. So we had to find some chairs and pull them around a table and called for a server. After waiting for almost an hour, we got cold food. Maybe they forgot to serve. There are so many nice restaurants in this region. Do not waste your time at the end of this road.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Though we arrived with 12 people, the staff did an amazing job of serving us efficiently. The food was good and abundant. I would highly recommend this stop if you are in the area. The restaurant is located on the beach in Manzanillo, with lots of colorful shops in the area. Other than the TV playing a soap opera way too loud, it was a pleasant experience.

“Great”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Great food & service. Only thing was a bit loud, but would definitely go again. Not greatest access because it was on 2nd floor, but wouldn't have a problem recommending to anyone.

“Fabulous food”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Quiet, incredibly well prepared, based on catch of the day, fresh tuna takata was the best. Great presentation, went back twice!

“Typical/local food!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

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.
