Maxi's By Ricky

Top choice caribbean in San José

If you can't get to the Caribbean coast, this restaurant is a good substitute. Manzanillo native Ricky transported his lip-smacking restaurant to the Central Valley in 2014 and everybody started showing up to feast on the traditional rice-n-beans, Caribbean chicken and rondón soup. The latest addition to the menu: small plates, so everybody can try a little of everything. Delish!

It's tricky to find: ask locally for directions.
