We ended up eating at this restaurant twice! Great food and a beautiful atmosphere - you eat "outside" underneath a porch roof. The first night, the power went out, but the waitstaff was awesome and carried on with great service (they brought out candles). Also, when we left a phone here on accident, the next day they had kept it... More

If you like to hang around places designed for tourists who think the Olive Garden is good eat'n then go right ahead and eat here. None of the warm Tico vibe here, just ex-pat waitresses who are realizing that "paradise" means work too and who are going through the motions while serving underwhelming food. Would not eat there again.

Amazing food --- amazing atmosphere. Friendly staff. The owners converse with distant travelers. A great way to feel at home and satiate your hunger from a day in the sun.

Had lunch here before heading back towards the airport. We were a large group of 14. Service was definitely slow, but they did get slammed all at once. Although service was slow, it was very friendly and welcoming. The food was good and atmosphere casual. I would definitely recommend and return.

We stopped by for Happy hour one evening before dinner, they had a number of drink specials 2 for 1. A friend went for the Margaritas and was surprised when they brought her a 2 for one but all in one glass. Large was the word. Under the trees in the center of town at the main intersection.

The dinner was good... There were three of us and we had dinner (Baja tacos, chicken enchiladas, and fish and rice - also guacamole and chips which were fantastic!) and margaritas. The food was good... If you are looking for a good quality Mexican restaurant, this is a great place to stop off to eat. The atmosphere is enjoyable as... More

When you wake up in the morning and keep thinking of the meal you had the night before, the food must be good. We live in Sámara and have take-out from Cocos about once a month. We go back because it is good. Last night was exceptional and I wanted to let you know. My Sante Fe salad was excellent.... More
