The red snapper is phenomenal! The staff is so friendly and helpful. The food is so good, we came back for round two in a 4 day visit! :)

We visited Maxi’s for lunch. The food is here delicious and the vibe is nice. It is right next to the sea and they play reggae music downstairs. The service is great too. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

This is the fourth time I visited this restaurant. In the previous ones I walked out with the best impression, my money was very well spent. In fact, it was in my plans to go there again, since I planned to visit the restaurant once...More
