All in all, the four of us had no complaints with our food. That being said, the pizza seems like the way to go here. The two men each ordered a medium pizza, which could have easily been split between 2 people and was delicious (I enjoyed some for breakfast the next morning!). I ordered the coconut shrimp and while... More

Located on the road from Playa Coco to Liberia, about 1/2 mile past the turn-off to Playa Hermosa, this road-side restaurant surprised with the variety of offerings, freshness of all ingredients, quality of service - and humongous portion sizes (which usually would have been a sign that they cover up for other things lacking - but not here!). This French... More

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
