The location is great, the service is very slow.
It seems there is only one person that acts as waiter, bar tender and cook.

Even though the food was not bad.

We were staying at the all inclusive Tesoro Manzanillo and decided to have one meal out at this nearby location. The setting next to Las Hadas resort is wonderful. We stepped out of the cab and around a corner to see a bustling exciting restaurant. Unfortunately that was the Italian, apparently very popular. We were pointed further along to the Bistro Marina. A few tables had people at them, there were more it appeared in a rooftop section. Fair enough. We were seated and waited and waited for the lone waiter, who was running up and downstairs with drinks and meals. At last he took drink orders, which took a long tme to come. When the haggard waiter finally brought the drinks, I asked if it would be better if we came back another night since he was so busy and alone. We were assured all would be fine. It wasn't. It was a very long time from our dinner orders going in to actually seeing the food. We actually wondered if the waiter might also be the cook. The meals finally arrived and were okay, one of our party had a meal that was pretty well inedible. They did take that meal off the bill. So, very poor service, caused not by the waiter but by a complete lack of proper staffing; and three of four meals okay, one bad. Doesn't sound like a recommendation, does it?
Oh, did I mention the other couple with us had their credit card compromised. They know it was there because that specific card had not been used anywhere on this trip or for some weeks before.
Avoid this place - try the Italian instead!

We may have chosen the wrong evening when there was a staffing problem but there was only one waiter who was performing every task, therefore, through no fault of his he was run off his feet, one could only feel sorry for him. It took three hours for two courses.

Out of four meals only one was unsuitable, raviloi, and we were not charged. The only time we saw a second member of staff was when we paid.

This is an easy stroll over from Las Hadas. They are not open for during the day time, but started setting up for dinner about 5:00. The menu had several good selections making it hard to choose. Our server was very pleasant, and the view of the marina was very nice. We could see fish jumping in the water.

Five of us went for dinner. The bernais sauce arrived as the chateau breanne was already eaten. My shrimps were a splodg on top of cold mash potatoes which along with a couple of slices of carrot were the only veggies available. At the end of the day the food was terrible and expensive.
If your looking for a nicer meal I suggest McDonald's.
