One of the great delights is to have Martin make you an authentic Caesar salad or his tequila shrimp at the table. It's pstairs so you can see the sunset and catch the breeze.

We spent a week on the beach in La Manzanilla and our rental neighbors recommended this restaurant. It was a little hard to find - it's located on the south end of the village on a dirt road past the plaza. The restaurant is upstairs in a jungle like setting with a great view through palm trees to the ocean.... More

Martin's is a wonderful place to have a relaxing comida. It overlooks the ocean and has a great ambiance. Martin is an outstanding host and chef. The caesar salad that he prepares at your table is outstanding. Our favourite is curried shrimp. The garlic shrimp is equally good. My trust of Martin is high enough that I've had steak tartar...

The food was excellent as was the service by Martin the owner. We had snapper veracruz, and snapper with caper sauce. Great guacamole and delicious beer (Ticus I think). We also tried and bought some lovely local Tequila to take home. I highly recommend this place.

This was our second visit to Martins for a nice dinner. We had the blue cheese salad made at our table which was great. Margaritas were good and our other dishes were also good. Martin himself makes sure that everyone is happy with their meals.

This restaurant is the top floor of a building overlooking the beach. There are about 20 stairs. The ambience of the restaurant is attractive and the view over the ocean is lovely. The problem was slow service.

We have been coming to La Manzanilla every year since 2003. The first place we visit is Martin's Restaurant and have found it to always remain the same-excellent service and food and not to mention the great location for one of the best places to view the sunset. A must is to have Martin prepare a table-side dinner for you.... More

I dined alone. Martin made a fish dish that was not on the menu. It was fabulous. The little extras, such as banana bread, were a nice (not common) addition. I went back when Martin was not there and it was not the same . . . .
