We went for lunch at Coco's and had a great lunch. The food and drinks were great. I had a salad with shrimp that was so delicious. I would go again when I go back to visit. Great food, service and atmosphere.

I ate there twice while in Samara for lunch. My sister and I shared two of the different ceviches, which were terrific. Another day I had the tacos...super good. Really a great menu and it was hard to choose....everything looked good.

My family and I went here our last night in Costa Rica, and sadly, we wish we had discovered it sooner. The service was the fastest we received our entire trip! Drinks were served within 5 minutes, and our food was out of the kitchen...More
