Maxi's is the easiest landmark to spot once you come into town. They have a soda and a bar on the lower level and a restaurant on the upper level. The soda has good affordable breakfast. The restaurant has pretty good food. Nice view overlooking...More

Very disappointing lunch, cold and sub-standard food. Along with poor service, the area was dirty and not worth the effort to visit. Was sad to witness the huge amount of plastic pollution.

This place was a great cultural experience. We had Caribbean chicken with beans, rice, pasta ones and smoothies. Absolutely fun and delicious. We highly recommend this place for authentic cuisine and fun atmosphere right on the beach.

I recommend eating just real Caribbean food like Rice&Beans otherwise it'd not be worth to pay that much money for food. My friend wanted shrimp but they didn't have, which really disappointed us considering it was a seafood restaurant.

Great sea view, nice staff and good food. The prices could be cheaper, but the atmosphere, music, a litle wind blowing, worth it! :)
