We've been in Montezuma for 4 nights and have eaten here 3 of the 4 nights. The spaghetti is to die for. It is hands down, without a doubt the best food on the West Coast of Costa Rica, never mind Montezuma. Cocolores is reason enough to come back to Montezuma!

If you're going to Montezuma you have to have either a fish or chicken fajitas at Cocolores! Don't forget to ask for their homemade hot sauce, delicicous!

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!!!

Thank Morgan B
