We visited on a Sunday in October and Manzanillo was crazy packed with beach goers. Cool and Calm Cafe had the Caribbean party music pumped and the grill on fire. My husband enjoyed the bbq chicken and I had the vegetable Casado which had a flavorful sauce.

We loved our food here! The meat was great, but my favorite was the rice and beans prepared with coconut milk. Kids were sad that they didn't have soda--ordered mango/passion fruit juice instead, and it was AWESOME! Of course, being on the beach was fun with the grill working along the street. A family affair for sure.

Andy was a great host! He made our son lobster with rice and my husband and I had fried fish fillet tacos with cabbage. Very delicious!
