This is really just an average soda for Costa Rica but with higher than usual prices for what you get As an example, the chicken comida only comes with one (!) chicken drum stick, rice and beans and a side salad and is therefore over priced at 3,000 or so colones. One little drumstick. Really? I just don't think the places in Manzanillo get it. They overprice and seem to all rely almost solely on foreigners and have just simply written off the Costa Rican potential entirely (Costa Ricans come to the Manzanillo beach in droves on the weekends but almost none will frequent any of the local places - they apparently know better). I will say that the potato french fries at Wacho are very good, but again, like everything else on the menu are over priced. Suggest Mima's two restaurants down instead. There are really no very good options in Manzanillo.

Across from Maxi's 2 storey restaurant is the busy and local recommended Soda Waucho that had tasty pickled spiced cucumber and carrots on their tables to accompany the delicious Caribbean fish we had. The coconut laced rice and beans with fresh juices also satisfying and delicious.

This was my favorite place to eat in Manzanillo. I went there at least once, but usually twice, every day. The blended drinks were good (pineapple with ginger was great), the beer was cold, and the shrimp
pasta was consistently delicious. The owner, at least I think he was the owner, was very friendly and provided great service. It's nothing fancy, but it doesn't need to be. Very convenient location, good presentation, and consistently good. I would go back in a heartbeat!

The young lady that serviced us was very friendly. My grandson had the shrimp with white sauce spaghetti. He said it was very good. I had caribean chicken that was delicious.

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 you're not in a hurry.
