“Great food and service”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Food here was delicious, drinks were good. Patio was pretty, a little farther up the main Rd away from the beach, and a little more expensive than some other restaurants but well worth it.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

This was our second visit to this venue. The restaurant was packed. Well, nearly packed. The service was timely and not overly engaging. The seviche was excellent, for me, not too acidic, balanced cut size, and good quality fish. Several risotto dishes were excellent, and the combinations with and seafood were surprisingly good. There is a chocolate soufflé which my son found fantastic. For Coco and for most places, I would say really good. Don't change the chef.

“Chic ambience, tranquil and relaxed setting plus great food”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Boutique size restaurant located within the Pacifico Commercial Plaza - you can sit inside or outside. We preferred sitting inside. Perfect lighting, great music. The menu offers quite a variety and besides great flavors, healthy too. The service was super. The wine list extensive.

“Nice restaurant in otherwise forgettable Coco Beach”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

A bit of distance from the beach, in the Pacifico complex. Our family arrived right at opening, and even though we were the only ones there, it did take a while to get our food. Still, the service was good, and the food was delicious. We came here because it came highly recommended by someone else, and it didn't disappoint.

“A mirage of fine dining in Playas del Coco”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Don't mistake its faux modern/spartan look & the glowing reviews bestowed upon it by others for anything exceptional. The menu, which hasn't been updated in at least 18 months, is a mix of pseudo- Asian, Latin & kinda sorta Italian. Ginger beef strips are served in a watery broth with too much ginger. Other dishes are too heavy. Overall, they serve too little for the price. Eat anywhere else and you will spend a fraction of the price for better food and a lot more service than you will find at this strategically placed trap in the nice stretch into town.

Be warned, the early evening service is lousy with food that is no better than what you would get in a below average airport hotel. The only guy really working is the bar tender. Someone forgot to train the kitchen that they should notify someone when they cook a dish. They will allow your food to get cold while the waiter is playing with his new phone. The heat lamps are ineffective as only one is in a position to heat a plate, leaving other dishes to sit at room temperature.

To get a full serving of rice (they serve baby portions) expect to pay $3 extra for the 5 tablespoons of rice that should have been served the first time while in a country where twice as much rice is served anywhere else for an eighth of the price. The dishes are not as satisfying as a casado served by the local sodas. Having dined here before, I can see that they are charging more & serving less with lower quality and almost no service. Except for that hard working bar tender, who gets a gold star.
