“Excellent food and beautiful sunset”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

We went after seeing reviews and the food was great, great service and beautiful sunset. We were going to try a different place to eat each night so the next night we went to hog heaven. It was a horrible experience and we left without eating. So we went back to coco maya because it was so good. They were out of a few things on the menu because of the off season, but the food and atmosphere ended up being just as good as the night before. The bartender was great. They had a special drink called a coco mojito. We loved those and she said she made them up and gave us the recipe so we could make them off the island. Great experience both times!!!

“This is the real thing...ocean dining with the service and food quality to match”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

You have to go to this restaurant during the day to enjoy the view (sunset recommended) - but seeing it at night only would not do this restaurant justice.

We walked from the marina to CocoMaya - this was not a far walk, but not a safe walk without sidewalks, so taxi is recommended.

The service is the best service I have ever had on the islands - they truly are at the same or better service standard as in the states. This alone is almost impossible to find in the BVI.

The food was all great quality. We tried quite a bit - but what really stood out was: Edamami, Beef Tenderloin from the large tapas menu, and the cocomaya sushi. What was not that great was the swordfish ceviche (not a typical ceviche).

The BBC drink was awesome...even better than Peter's Island.

The dolce de leche cheesecake was so good. Texture a little like a mouse and cheesecake mix - but still really, really good flavor and texture.

I am not a fan of the tapas style dining - so I stuck with the sushi rolls and large tapas menu for more individualized portions. This is my preference - but up to you.

This is a little pricey - however, the view, service, and food is all worth a great night out.

To top the night off - Morgan Freedman was entering the restaurant to dine...goes to show you this is a place even the 'stars' dont miss.

“Terrific meal”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Dinner at CocoMaya is a delicious adventure for the taste buds. The extensive menu offerings-tapas and sushi-are a creative mix of flavors and presentation. We ate there twice on our recent visit to Virgin Gorda and the food was excellent both times. The open air setting, right on the beach, is casual yet elegant. Our only issue with CocoMaya was uneven service: the first night, which was very busy, service was top-notch; the second night the wait staff were pretty disorganized. Fortunately, the kitchen was in top form both nights. We would definitely eat there again.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

This was our favorite restaurant on the entire island. Quite swanky and expensive but well worth a try. Amazing setting right on the beach. Very professional staff.

“Enjoyable dinner in Spanish Town”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

My husband and I heard about CocaMaya from a local. We had an excellent dinner experience. We were seated next to the fire pit on the beach, there was live music and the servers were very friendly. The food is Asian/tapas fusion. My only negative was that my appetizer of calamari was on the small size, but it was delicious. We had a nice, reasonably priced bottle of wine with the dinner.
