I live in Manzanillo and this is the best place to get lunch. Try the red snapper with rice and beans. Just delicious. Wacho is a local fisherman and his wife is cooking for you. You won't miss that!

Your food is cooked on order so it takes a very long time before served. Good location across from the beach and for regular Caribbean food, it's a better choice than Maxi's which is a stone's throw away. Nothing fancy but worth the time is...More
