The place in Manzanillo for chow and beer on the beach. You pay a little extra for the location, but you,re right there. Buses stop right there, if coming from elsewhere.

We shared a huge fried red snapper and rice and beans and patacones (fried plaintains). Very good and a great spot right up above the bar on the beach also had a coconut bomb for dessert - one of them was super spicy!

My family and I ate here after a few hours of swimming at the beach across the street. The service was excellent. Overall the food was good. I had steak, but it was a little tough, but everything else was really good.
