Right on the beach for good food, and good drinks. We ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer, and it was very good. My wife had the sea bass fingers, and I had the coco loco seafood special. Both were fairly priced as were the drinks. Our waiter was Manfred, and he did a great job! Well worth a visit.

We stayed at the Flamingo Beach hotel & walked to Coco Loco for dinner one night. It was very busy but they made room for the nine of us. The location is right on the beach so it is terrific!

Great spot to eat on the beach. Reasonable prices and excellent service. I normally won't try items on the menu named for the restaurant, but I highly recommend the Coco Loco drink and meal.

We had dinner here 1 night during our stay. Food was good service also. Loved the eclectic background music. Its a bit of a pain to get to. All the way at the end of Playa Flamingo Drive...little dark....lots of potholes....you have to park on the road.

We found Coco Loco walking along the lovely beaches of Playa Flamingo. South of the Flamingo Beach Resort and Spa; we had a chance to chase a few waves and splash a few drops or two of water on ourselves just before lunch. Having direct access to Coco Loco from the beach made it very easy to select a table... More

They have these drinks called coco loco,they are great. And its just fun to drink out of a coconut too! Franklin was our server multiple times, he was very friendly and attentive, great service. The only food we had was the guacamole and pico with chips which I loved! It is a good place for drinks and location is AWESOME... More
