Great food right on the beac.

A 10 minute walk down the beach. Food was fantastic. Be advise if you go at sunset, make sure to make a reservation if you want to sit on the beach. Otherwise, they seat you "inside". Which is really on a terrace across from the beach, which is fine. Went there twice, had the steak on a heated... read more

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the condo we were staying in. The food was amazing and the views can't be beat. Service was a bit slow, but would go back again regardless. It was worth the wait.

Coco loco definitely has one of the best locations - the perfect spot to enjoy the Playa Flamingo sunsets, one of the best! and the food is excellent. Much better than expected for a place that could just take advantage of their location.

We went twice during our stay, the food was very good, we had the fried fish, the locococo (their famous dish) and the burger, which was very well cooked and seasoned. It's right on the beach so the location is perfect. My only complaint is that the first day we order the burger it came with delicious potato wedeges, so... More
