Locals, tourists and expats should flock to Maky's. Hearty grub and beautiful location. Look out for music nights with a great buffet.

Its a good place for a cheap meal and a catch up session with friends. The owner is one of the most friendliest people you will ever meet. He makes everyone feel at home.

Food was buffet style and super average. From the reviews it sounds better if you can order ala carte. Ordered a beer at the bar and they claimed not to have change which seemed a bit shady. Nice view. Bring your bug repellent.

This was another work related dining experience. It has an enjoyable atmosphere and nice view. The food was buffet meat, potatoes and rice. Nothing spectacular but tasty. I am not sure if they have Al Cart menu but if they do it will be worth...More
