We went here on our last night in Costa Rica, with a local friend we made. He said a lot of the locals went here and it was a little more quiet. It was right on the beach which was really cool and would have been cool to see the sunset from here. They had some music, and a ping... More

... good drinks and ok food. That just about sums up my experience here. I really liked the ambience of the place and the drinks I had were good. The food was a bit too fatty and the variety improvable, but it wasn't too bad. As it was off-season there weren't too many people around and most were twice my... More

Depending on how you arrive, if coming from the central park of Coco to reach this bar, you must cross over a rickety bridge. When I have visitors I always take their picture crossing the bridge. I call it the sobriety bridge! If you can make it back across, you haven't had too much to drink. I can't quite call... More

Was in town with some friends and went over for dinner and drinks our second night. We got some great service during happy hour from our waiter Jose and met the new owner Zack. I don't know how you can beat good food and $2 happy hour rum and cokes. We went back on Sunday for Reggae night and a... More

Awesome food, right on the beach at Coco Beach. Time consuming on when you actually get the food, but very good!

This is my favourite little beach bar in Coco. The drinks are affordable, the food is usually really good and the other clients/staff are always extremely friendly and happy to talk. A beautiful view to sit and enjoy yourself with and they often have great live entertainment at night, which can turn in to quite a fun party! You have... More

True, the place is great for a drink at sunset. The food isn't that bad either; actually the chili was really good and the fish tasted fresh. Two things that bothered us a lot were the two young people behind the bar and the toilets. Personnel was busy with themselves or their phones while the toilets were, and i put... More
