I read about Mariscos Carlos on tripadvisor while searching for a local seafood restaurant in the Manzanillo area. I had thought that this restaurant was close to El Centro but it was not.

The seafood was excellent as were the prices. This is a real bargain. The atmosphere is sort of a cafeteria feeling but it is very clean. Servers polite and helpful.

Had lunch here. A bit hard to find as its not by the beach. Although it was not a busy day; waiter took a long time before they came to our table to take our order. I ordered oysters on the shell as an appetizer and was told they don't come on the shell. They serve them on a plate.... More

The servers were not happy, after waiting 40 minutes it was determined that the waiter forgot to place my order and the length of time to get everyone's food was horrible as we were the second group In the restaurant. Based on everyone else's reviews, they must have had a bad day. The food was also not very good.

Wonderful seafood! They have the best! The lobster tail with butter and garlic are to die for.. The shrimp are huge and excellent. Good service is also a plus.

Everything is worth to taste, so far my favs are: tacos de camarón, tostada de pulpo y camarón, camarones zarandeados. And to drink try the agua de coco, which even has pieces of coconut
