This "bar" has some of the best food in Coco. They don't try to make everything but what they do make they make well. The management is professional and expects the same from the staff. Some of the best drink and food prices in the area with a happy hour that starts early.

From the first time Adolfo invited us to sample the drinks and cuisine until the night before we flew home, Zi felt like home. Adolfo always made sure we were seated promptly, and the waitresses handled our orders and payments accurately and promptly. We did get a bad bartender on a Friday night; otherwise, the margaritas, pina coladas and mojitos... More

We visited Zi's on a few occasions during our short stay in Playa del Coco. Like most places in the area, happy hour is from 11am-7pm. The food is great. Appies for $4. The service was good and the bartenders were quick. The margaritas are huge! On Saturday nights this is the party place to be from 10pm - 3am.... More

Adalfo was great recommending wonderful drinks and snacks after a long day of souvenir shopping. He even let us call the hotel to pick us up after they forget ( a mixup with the water and land taxi services) where else can you find a piña colada the size of a coconut for three dollars ?

mediocre service...garlic bread for $6.00 hard to swallow..about a 6 inch piece with very little cheese....long wait to get food,,,and your check...my opinion pass this place up and head down to Beach Bums where for $6.00 you can get some kickass ribs and homefries with a side of slaw...and the service is fast...

Went to Zi's for the first time after by-passing it for a number of years. A friend recommended the food. We shared a mix selection of tapas and dishes. Everything was delicious. The service was excellent. The only minor negative is the music was a bit too loud to allow conversation with my friends. However the ambiance and music selections... More
