We were 14 extended family members, ranging from 5 to 69 years old. Hands down the best meal we had during our week long vacation. My only regret was that we didn’t find it sooner; we only got to eat there twice. Kids loved the fire baked pizza and my wife went crazy for the coconut shrimp. Service was amazing... More

Great little restaurant with good food and service. The only downside is that it is right next to a busy road so not great for a romantic dinner. However, if you want good food that is reasonably priced, then this is well worth the drive.

This place is just outside Coco, but well worth the visit. I had the filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly. Will definitely visit again.

Perfect tenderloin and chlli rellenos. Wait staff was excellent. Nice atmosphere, and the prices were quiet reasonable. A bit out of town, but well worth the 5 minute drive.

We're so happy to find a nice place outside of Coco! Great food, loved it here! Priced the same as Coco, great service, easy to find, right on highway just before Nacazcol (when coming from Coco).

We returned to Coco this year to find Donde Johann is still here. The restaurant is for sale but I still hope it continues as one of the best restaurants in Coco. I had the coconut shrimp and my wife had yet he buccanero shrimp....both excellent choices. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone without kids...more an adult atmosphere... More

We tasted the pizza, some sushi and a specialty plate. The pizza was by far the best of the choices, followed by the sushi. If you go here definitely try the pizza and maybe have some sushi as appetizer. The pizza has a good size to feed 2-3 people. The parking lot is kind of tricky so be careful getting... More

Very happy to find this place after looking at reviews on tripadvisor. It was the first good meal we had in 3 days of our trip. The others were touristy, overpriced and not very tasty. This restaurant had great service, pleasant ambiance and delicious food. We had the Mahi Mahi that was stuffed with Hearts of Palm and Shrimp which... More
