Good food and mojitos are great!

The food and drink at Koco's continues to be excellent. This is our second time eating here and both times the food and specialty drinks were very good.

This restaurant is situated within the Old San Juan hotel. There is a large bar and lots of seating. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We started with the chicken dumplings which were just ok. For dinner I had the chorizo crusted Mahi Mahi which was EXCELLENT. Great flavor and cooked perfectly. Wonderfully seasoned green beans...

Our server, Raphael, was so friendly, knowledgeable and provided excellent service. Our food, which included my seafood paella and my fiancee's seared mero & monfongo, was absolutely delicious. We topped our meal off with desserts and coffee. The restaurant has a beautiful decor as well.

This is a good dining option in the area where you can get a passable version of Puerto Rican-esque food.

The service was excellent and the food was equally outstanding. While we were there, not many people dined here. We felt somewhat lonely in such a cavernous space. The appetizers are a must.

It was our last night in PR and after a mixed bag of good and not so great meals, Koco's helped us end our vacation on a high note ! I had the Ahi Tuna cooked medium and it was perfect and tasted awesome. It was served over Foo foo plantain (sweet plantain he explained) served with tempura asparagus. It... More

We had dinner at Koco and left full and very pleased. Our server Jesus was the highlight of our experience. Jesus was spot-on with his recommendations--the koconut shrimp, ceviche, and mahi mahi were all delicious. The portions were perfect, even a little on the bigger side. We did not have any cocktails, so I cannot to speak to those, but... More

Overall a nice dinner and very attentive service. Koconut tempura shrimp appetizer is a must try. Slightly dry pork tenderloin was not a deal breaker. Would definitely go back to try another night to see if the food quality is the same.

We were staying at the hotel and tried Koco. Had a good meal. The stand out was the fish tacos. Everything else was good but nothing was memorable. Liked the decor and the vibe of the restaurant. The nice vibe of the restaurant is much more memorable than the food.
