Being the most famous restaurant in Manzanillo (and recommended on lonely planet) we expected the best: but it certainly wasn't. The service is terrible, the worst we saw in all our trip in Costa Rica. It takes them very long to even give you the menu! And once they gave it to us and we tried to order they told us that they only had like 30% of what they announced there.
It's expensive for what they serve and you don't leave there feeling that you'll return ever!

Tried to get lunch here during a caribbean rain storm. Waited more than 1.5 hours, just to find out they messed up the order. Only 3 of 4 orders were served! Ingen addition, the food was of poor quality. Cold Beer, though. My advice: Stay away.

Maxi is famous for its tasteful red snapper and lobster in a colourful restaurant (first floor) at the beach. The service is attentive and friendly. Besides fish you can also enjoy other dishes cooked caribean style, fruit smoothies, cocktails ...on weekend it can be busy.
