Great food, spotty service

The Mexican food here is some of the best I have ever had. Their white sangria is delightful and refreshing on a hot day. My husband loved their burrito and I really enjoyed their Caribbean Salad. Service is spotty- one evening we had excellent service while another evening we had slow service... read more

we had a nice meal in a nice atmosphere on san Valentine night (although it was not our intention to celebrate). Quesadillas were really good! Fajitas were nice too but the presence of rice and beans (unexpected) made the plate less exciting ( we usually prefer a big plate for frying meat as normally served in Mexican restaurants in Europe)....

I'm from Texas and this was good Mexican. Service was slow but friendly and welcoming. The restaurant was packed on a Saturday night.

Excellent service, great food, decent selection, fabulous margaritas made right and relaxed atmosphere. We wanted a laid back location to watch the Superbowl and this was a good choice. We ordered one order of wings plus 4 different entrees and shared among 6 of us (we weren't extremely hungry). This was just right!! The drink specials were fun - margaritas!!!... More

We loved the tacos here, and the ceviche is pretty good too. Ask Memo for his ginger and lime smoothie a la Lillie :) $1 tequila shots to kick off your evening on Fridays

Our group of six visited Cocos restaurant for the intention of having a couple cold beverages and a snack after an afternoon on the beach. We were greeted by a man whom we believed to be the owner and directed to seat ourselves where we found suitable. After choosing a table our waiter and I use the term waiter loosely... More

Our family of six ate there - ordering a bunch of dishes and sharing them around "family style." Fried green plantains; fish, chicken, and ground beef tacos; quesadilla; guacamole -- all good. Locals might say it's spicy. Not so much and we're from the Midwest!

Good food and good drinks.A Mexican taste in Costa Rica. Outdoor seating at street side or in the large area in the back. Large servings of tasty fresh food. The Sopa Azteca is not to be missed.

We stopped in for a drink and ended up eating. The staff was amazing and the owner (co-owner actually) is a great guy who probably sold me on the idea of moving to CR. We ate there two more times while we were there and drank plenty of Margaritas. I would recommend this to anyone going to visit the town.
