Good place for drinks and music

Great local band playing music and singing. You can play table soccer and enjoy the music. Nothing special about the food.

We stayed at the hotel so we ate here a few times. They have a great variety of food and drinks. The tables are mostly on the beach and the light is very cozy. the live band is great if you like power ballads :)

One of the worse service I've ever encountered. Hostesses were rather rude and very flirty with foreign men. From what I've observed, they paid most of their attention to the foreign men. I get it, you guys are trying to make money, for the company i hope, but don't do it in front of other customers. Hostesses made the business... More

4 times there, 2 good experiences, 1 bad and 1 terrible, including hair in my food ( I went alone and I am bold so no way it could be mine ). All in all, I want to believe I was unlucky. The other bad experience happened when apparently there was a birthday surprise and I had to wait for... More

It's one of those beach Bbq places that has the wares (fish etc) iced up outside so you can walk up and choose your skewed salmon or tuna steak. The pork belly was tasty.. As for the "best pizza on the beach" - it's edible but obviously not The one you got in that ace little place in the back... More

Our favourite place to eat, drink, chill and enjoy the fabulous music on Alona Beach. The first night we visited for dinner, we managed to bag a waterfront table on the beach. Sadly the rains came down and although other tables were initially given umbrellas to protect themselves, we were rushed inside and given a table right in front of... More

The coco vida it s located in the best position in Alona beach. Sea front. Many bar and reastautant there and many tourists. That s why maybe the food is not so good. The staff is nice.

Aug. 10, 2015 Stopped in for lunch and I ordered the shrimp delight. After 40 minutes it finally arrived, WOW!!! It's was so over spices that it hurt to eat it, and as most places here at Alona beach the prices are expensive. I like spicy food but this was over the top.

Got drawn in by the smell of the barbecue. Unfortunately, that was pretty much the high point of our dining experience. The meat wasn't marinated long enough so the pork tenderloin I ordered tasted bland.
