Good take on Caribbean Fare

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.

We've been frequenting restaurants in the area for over four years, including inside the El San Juan Hotel, and only now came across Koco, as it lies a bit hidden in the back next to the entrance to the casino. But now that we found it we will surely go back. Beautiful deco, delicious Caribbean food, great service by Mauricio,... More

This restaurant is ok. The only thing that ended up making it better was the server. He really made sure we had an excellent time and was very attentive. The hostess though... She didn't even acknowledge us when we came in and though the restaurant was EMPTY and she was doing NOTHING she took forever to greet us and take... More

Our recent dinner at Koco was full of tasty dishes and extra friendly service. We had the Koconut Tempura Shrimp & Koco Crab Cakes as starters and then the Caribbean Salad followed by a spicy shrimp noodle dish as well as a risotto dish (names forgotten). This restaurant is conveniently located in the El San Juan Hotel - Isla Verde.... More
