Our group of seven went here for mine and my husband's 'wedding reception'. It was on the beach and was chilled out. The choices of drinks was very good. The food was not horrible but not the best we had while in CR. And do not order the calamari. It was very strange. Everything else was not too bad. The... More

They advertise as the best sunsets in Costa Rica ...... and wife and I agree. Such a quiant place on the beach great prices and drinks. The people that run it are more than helpful with any questions regarding Costa Rica or the general area. I seriously doubt that you'll find a more beautiful, relaxing sunset anywhere else.

The tables were placed in the sand on the beach and we were eating with friends at sunset. It was just so beautiful and made for a perfect evening. Our food and service were very good.

We planned to take the family there on live Reggae night as we thought our daughters, 22, 19 and 15 would enjoy the atmosphere on the beach with the music in the background. Unfortunately, it started to rain and we were squished up under the beach umbrellas, with drops rolling down our back .The staff was great though, and it... More

Simple concept - serve cold beer, trendy drinks and good food to happy customers on the beach. Sound too good to be true? Go visit Coco Loco and put your toes in the sand on beautiful Flamingo Beach while enjoying this ultra casual hot spot. We go there often and have always enjoyed it.

Loved this restaurant. The view is to die for. We ate the grilled snapper and it simply does not get any more fresh than what we had. It was delicious. It would be a great place for both lunch and dinner.

Not sure life gets any better than a meal at Coco Loco in Flamingo Beach. Wooden tables on the beach in the sand offer the perfect place for one of their signature cocktails (the Coco Loco, of course, served in a coconut) as well as appetizers and entrees. There were nine of us that arrived around 5:30. We had lobster,... More

I kinda got tired of generally the same food most costa rica restaurants have, even on the beach....usually rice/beans and some seafood, or generic international food. But this place...wow! I only wish we had found it earlier. Its a short walk along the beach or road from Flamingo resort, and it had very creative original food and cocktails. I pretty... More

We had such a great dinner with some friends at Coco Loco. The drinks were so yummy and the food was excellent. We drank the Coco Locos which were served in coconuts and were so good! For dinner I ate the Loco Coco, which was unbelievably good. We actually didn't find Coco Loco until our last night in Flamingo which... More
