“Not recommended”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

After reading a lot of reviews we decided to try this restaurant......what a disappointment! Chairs were too low for the tables...not much atmosphere...bathrooms disgusting....lighting too bright for fine dining. I ordered a margarita for a cocktail and. Could not taste any booze in it....the waiter brought a shot of tequila and dropped it into my drink...still seemed watered down. I ordered a shrimp dish which all I could taste was salt on everything including potatoes shrimp and vegetables. My wife had a chicken filet with a salty cream sauce and salty potatoes and vegetables. I definitely will never come back and would never recommend this restaurant to anyone! No one cooks with salt anymore!

“nice beachside dining”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

We liked this restaurant enough to go twice in our 5 day stay in Coco. It's one of the few beachside restaurants, and feels a bit higher end with white linen table cloths and friendly, professional wait staff. The typical plate can be had for about $7 or 3500 CR (chicken was excellent but the shredded beef was also good). We also tried the fish Claudio and a few other dishes, all were very good and portions were large. These dishes were a bit more, probably in the $15 range. Menu in English and enough bi-lingual staff to get by with limited Spanish skills.

“Best casado so far!”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

This is a great location, but also a good meal. I had a reasonably priced fish casado and it was the best fish I've tasted in town so far. The house white wine was also good. I'll go back again!
