Everything was cooked to perfection! I highly recommend ordering anything grilled. I had the salmon and it was great!

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

So, the fact that I have been going for 30 years would suggest I love the place. Although my meals are usually quite good, prices are fair, but it nothing to write home about. It is in a bad location. A dusty, industrial area near the bus station. The hours are uneven. No atmosphere. Service okay. Price is good, but... More

Mariscos Carlos is a place loved by locals and by tourists savvy enough to find it tucked behind the Manzanillo bus station. It's a large place that specializes in tasty, perfectly cooked seafood, efficient, friendly service, and a casual atmosphere. Everyone from bus drivers to big wheeler-dealers appear to eat here. We especially liked the free appetizer plate of jicima... More

I tried here a fish on the grille, it was excellent. The service is good, although English is not the best part here. The prices are good. This is a good place for fish and sea food eaters. Recommended restaurant, I will be back 
