I usually like to dine outside of hotel restaurants. KOCO was an exception to the rule. After looking at the restaurant and researching reviews, we decided to give it a try. Dinner was excellent. It was the best coconut shrimp I ever ate. The atmosphere was wonderful. I hope to visit Puerto Rico again soon so I can dine here... More

I was served an astounding presentation of Blackened seared tuna with tempura asparagus and sweet plantains. It is a Puertorican restaurant with a twist.

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.

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 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.
