I visited this spot today after doing drive by last week. I was very impressed by the food, and really was not expecting there to be such a good cook in a spot so obviously relying on the sheer magnificence of this beach. Coco Loco enjoys the only true beach side tables on arrived knoll of land that overseas the... More

We just returned from a 10-day stay at the Flamingo Beach Resort, and Coco Loco was our favorite place to eat dinner. It is a short stroll down the beach and nothing can beat sitting with your toes in the sand, sipping a tropical drink from a coconut or a refreshing glass of sangria, watching the spectacular sunsets here!

Loved the ambiance, the food was great, beers were cold. It's easy to walk to and nice to have just a beach bar/restaurant … pure Costa Rica… wish it wasn't separated by the street but overall great experience.

Had a great lunch here with my family while on our fifth trip to Costa Rica! What a a amazing place. After a great lunch we ran onto the adjacent beach and jumped in the ocean. Postcard perfect location. Looks like they could film one of those Corona commercials right there. Well worth it! Pura Vida!

We walked from the resort to coco loco just before sunset. The tables on the beach fill up quickly for sunset so I suggest getting their early to get one with adequate shade. Food was great! Had tuna taco recommended by waiter. Tuna cooked to your request. Just enough wasabi to give it a bite. Get the rice and beans.... More

I REALLY need to know where Ryan H lives if he found this restaurant "pricey"? My family (4 adfults, 1 child) ate there last week. I have been in over 90 countries and very often in Costa Rica. We found the food so good and portions so huge we went there again the next day for dinner with the family... More

This place is right on the beach but just average food. The meals were ok-good. The portions were small and fairly pricey. The beach is great though. Maybe better for a drink or two.

This was right down the hill from where we stayed at Casa Mimosa. We (14 at three tables) had a midday meal and it was lovely. If one is traveling from the US or other countries, it may seem to be a bit slow in getting things to you, but there is this thing called Costa Rica time, which is... More

just a short walk from the Flamingo. Located right on the beach. Very caring staff and a fine chef. Prices were varied and offered a good choice for most people. Nice presentation of food.
