Great seafood and great service. Beautiful setting overlooking the sea. We were told by many hotel owners that Maxi's no longer what it used to be and that we should go to another place nearby. But we still choose Maxi's and did not regret it.

We had the typical rice and beans from the Caribean coast from Costa Rica. It was very tasty and the dishes are big. I recommend to have it together with the beef (which is a little bit spicy but really good) or with the shrimps. It also comes with the fried bannana. The restaurant has nice views to the beach. The orice is higher than other places in Costa Rica.

If you want a typical Caribbean meal I recommend this place. Keep in mind the dishes are quite big. We had the red snapper, rice and shrimps and shrimps Caribbean style. All very good! What I did not really like was the poor service and customer service.

Not too many restaurants in Manzanillo so ended up here a few times. Food is generally mediocre. Standard rice and beans fare. Pretty expensive considering the quality. Service is pretty good and friendly. Toilets are very smelly. Nice to have live music though.

My husband and I took a trip to Manzanillo a few days ago and stopped at Maxi's for lunch. We sat at a table with an awesome view of the ocean. The place has a great atmosphere..the staff were very friendly and service was great! My husband ordered seafood and rice and I ordered shrimp and rice..our meals were absolutely delicious! We found the food here even better than the same dishes we ate at Mopri's in Puerto Viejo which has been given great reviews. If you get a chance to visit Manzinillo you should definitely stop in at Maxi's.
