Great food, amazing environment! The prices are a little on the high side, but the taste is sure worth it!

Beautiful view from the second floor a great spot for drinks. Food was alright but a little on the high side. My finance had the snapper which was okay, I had local lobster which was also okay. The mixed civeche was delicious though.

Before going to Costa Rica I read a review that said if you are in Manzanillo that we should try the Red Snapper at Maxi's. Let me say they were right. We had it prepared "The Jamaican Way". (it wasn't spicy). It was so good that we went back a second time for the red snapper. The restaurant is a laid back family restaurant with a Jamaican inspired theme. After all it is on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica which is greatly influenced by Jamaica. It is located right on the ocean so sit back watch the waves, have a cold cerveza (beer) and enjoy the laid back, stress free experience.

It’s overpriced and greasy. Ordered the snapper, which was not anywhere near as good as the Calm and Cool Café, it was just ok. Also had the vegetarian plate, which evidently means onions and a few red peppers, which I thought was a bit strange and unsatisfying. It's not terrible, just seriously average.

We expected to be rather underwhelmed by the food because of other ratings on Tripadvisor, but were pleasantly surprised. We visited nearly every day for a beer and to watch the world go by. No better place to get the "flavour" of Manzanillo and not a bad place to eat either!
