My husband and I ate lunch here on the recommendation of the hotel we were staying at. My previous visit to Costa Rica I had a meal of fresh grilled red snapper that was very memorable so I was on a quest to duplicate this meal. Unfortunately, this was not the place to find that unbelievable grilled snapper. My snapper... More

Got to be careful with this place two times I've been in a month two times I ended up sick. Two days ago I ordered "seafood rice" today I'm leaving the clinic with the clear diagnose of food poisoning.

Went for lunch and LOVED it. Slow pace, but very relaxing and great food. Lemon shrimp was a hit and the Ceviche was perfect. We wish we'd had another day to try dinner...

We were staying in an all inclusive hotel and needed something decent to eat, were directed here by some locals, had grilled lobsters with garlic sauce and seafood stuffing. It was absolutely wonderful. Service is a little slow as everything is freshly prepared but well worth the wait. A fried seafood appetizer was hot, fresh, and delicious. We plan to... More

Short walk from the condos we stayed at. Low season, so we were the only ones in the restaurant in the back. There is also bar type seating up front, near the road for more casual atmosphere. Good ceviche. Was amazed how well behaved the family dogs were. Circled the restaurant seating area, but never entered it.

Rick Vogel at our hotel, Rancho Armadillo, recommended Milanes, and the food is excellent. The service is a bit inconsistent but generally good. It can be loud if there is a soccer game on the televisions.

If you have time and don’t mind waiting a long time for your food (20-30 minutes) then you should come here; food is very good and prices are good as well. I went 3 times and everything I tried tasted good and fresh made… from rice & shrimp, hamburgers to fajitas. Staff is very friendly and from what I heard... More

We discovered El Milanes by recommendation of a friend in Guanacaste, as most or restaurants in El Coco tend to be more oriented towards international cuisine, and we were looking for a fair place to eat seafood. You MUST try the seafood cream, it is simply delicious, probably the best I've tasted. It has plenty of seafood, ranging from shrimp,... More

We would have never seen this place. A local recommended it and we are so glad we went. Some of the best food we had during our 12 day trip to CR. The service was great and friendly. The food was awesome. We had ceviche and the whole red snapper. They offer every kind ceviche you can imagine. Fabulous. Our... More
