A perfect spot to chill with the sounds of the Caribbean, the waves, the reggae, the Spanish and the laughter . Oh, and of course the food is awesome. Andy the owner and chef will take care of you, no worries. Glad we followed the suggestion of another local and ate here. A wonderful way to end the day when you come back hiking all or part of the trail to Punta Mona.

My girlfriend and I were in Manzanillo for an afternoon and looking for something to eat. It was raining so everyone camping on the beach had packed Maxi's and there wasnt a spot to be had. Strolled down the road to Cool and Calm and lucked into something fantastic. We had the whole Red Snapper and the Carribean chicken. Hard to tell which one was better. And the guac was awesome too. Great food, friendly waiter, a couple of beers and some Bob Marley. What else could you ask for?

Friendly, relaxed, and great food! Vegetarian options too. Nice fruit drinks, a change room if you need it too after being at the beach. We ate there 3 times in 1 week.
