Maxi's is not a place to be missed while in Manzanillo. Very fun place with a real Caribbean vibe. The food was great, as was service and value. Of course right on the beach where you can hear the soft wave's of the Caribbean sea.

Good food, nice people, great view of the beach. I tried a few things and prefer the parilla fish and chicken.

If you are going to Manzanillo, you must try Maxi's. Best beachside restaurant in the area... hands down.

We had lunch at Maxi's twice during our week long stay. The food was excellent and the servers were very friendly. The typical Costa Rican fare was abundant, and the Caribbean sauce delicious. The prices were typical of the area.
