Great Service

The food was a great blend of Carribean and Asian elements. The drinks were very good and deceptive.

Located in the Hotel El San Juan is this gem that was recommended by the concierge at our hotel just doors away! We wanted to get a "real taste" of the local fare and this did not disappoint. It had a great selection of appetizers, entrees, and deserts. We relied on the very knowledgable waiter to make recommendations for us... More

Tasty- food was fantastic. Scallop appetizer is a must have.many things are on the menu for different tastes. Don't be afraid to try something new because everything has many flavors that you will love. I had the steak which was good and a bit spicy however I was able to remove some cilantro above the steak so it was less... More

I had a reservation and still waited 25min to be seated. A couple who didn't have a reservation got seated after me and still got their food before me. I took an hour an a half for me to receive my food and even with the discount from the restaurant I ended up paying $21.40 at the Hotel San Juan... More

Every time we go to Koco's at the El San Juan Resort, we are absolutely swept away by the creative dishes and the pleasing flavors. There were no specials on the menu on a Friday evening. We settled on the Coconut Shrimp and Scallops for appetizers. We keep going back for the coconut shrimp and laughingly say we are going... More

Although hotel itself has seen better days, this restaurant was excellent. I was skeptical when discovered owned by a restaurant group instead of an individual chef . Turned out to not be a concerned at all. I couldn't get enough of the tender mango chicken.it tasted infused instead of the glaze most slather on. Service, explanations and attention were all...

We had a rehearsal dinner for 140 people. Everyone was in shock when they saw how beautiful the restaurant is. They were even more impressed with how how amazing the meal and drinks were. The staff was so friendly. My wife and I have eaten at over 30 restaurants in San Juan and this one is definately in the top... More

We dined at Koco twice during our one week stay at El San Juan. The food the first night was very good, great flavor but a little salty. Service seemed untrained and inexperienced. The second night was terrible. Steak was overcooked (big time) and even saltier, and the service was worse. After waiting 45 minutes for our check, we walked... More
