It was awsome, maybe the best food in Costa Rica and the prices are more than reasonable. We had a red snapper and prawns for two, including side dish for just 9000 colones!! The atmosphere is great, real caribean feeling, Andy is an unicum, a very nice host, i just can recomment this place to every body!

I love this place...it was so inviting...a low key resturant. The owner is a great guy and comes around and chats with you. His cooking is amazing. I went with my mom, dad and brother we sat out watching the ocean and enjoyed a wonderful meal...you must stop by and try the food.

We stopped at this new charming cafe in Maxines for a drink and snacks. Andy was very friendly, and is a great cook. He's worked hard at opening this new cafe, and it's a pleasure to have. Great location and atmosphere and food!

After a morning spent at beautiful Manzanillo beach, we stumbled into this sweet beachfront hut for lunch. Chef Andy, the cool, calm and friendly cook welcomed us with a huge smile and offered to make us anything we wanted for lunch - even take us to the reef just a few feet away to hunt for lobsters! We decided for red snapper, rice & beans and patacones. Delicious! Cold beers, amazing food, beautiful blue green ocean. Very soon we'll come back for that caribbean style lobster.
