Somewhat hidden of the mainroad lies a restaurant that only opens for dinner and is run by 2 laidback gentleman and an unseen cook. Although the place is usually packed, no one seems to be in a hurry and still the service is quick and adequate. The Italian food tastes great and the coffee is straight-up perfect!

The setting is great - on the beach and very atmospheric but the food is only ok - not fantastic. The service was quite indifferent as if they couldn't care if you were there or not.

We were here the beginning of November. We sat outside and listened to the waves crash in the background. The food and drinks were wonderful with excellent service!

Someone recommended this place and after finding it on the beach we were pleased. It's a romantic dinner spot with great drinks and delicious food. The curry is AMAZING! We loved it.

Super amazing meal with super friendly staff! We were only in town for two nights but I would be surprised if there was a better meal in Montezuma. We had civiche, fresh caught sea bass (in curry and banana) and a steak perfectly prepared in butter and rosemary. A super nice atmosphere with a super nice staff! Pura Vida!!!

Cocolores is a great little restaurant with absolutely wonderful food! Definitely try the ceviche and fajitas. The drinks and service are fantastic as well, with the owner serving tables daily. The menu has a bit of everything.

Large servings, awesome bread provided with dinner. Yum. The only thing I didn't like is that they would not seat us in the area closer to the beach (they said it was reserved.....nobody showed up for it the entire time we were there...and we enjoyed our meal quite leisurely). Ceviche was good. All of the food ....no complaints. I'll go... More

After a 2 1/2 year absence I was eager to return to Cocolores for the ceviche. Again, it was freshly fantastic. Outdoor seating in the back is comfortingly simple and relatively near the water. Tight menu with each option made to perfection. Truly the best restaurant in Montezuma and the people who work there are cool, too! Great vibe. Great... More

A much needed dinner and drinks after a long day of travel, We both had the sea bass, one with cognac sauce, mmmm good. Full meal, bread, salad, fish, rice, mixed veg. and good pina colodas! Will be back again while we are in the area.

Thank Diane L
