Last but best

We had passed Cocorico several times and were intrigued by 'Movie Night' offerings. On our last night in Cahuita I insisted we eat there. It wasn't a movie night, but we enjoyed beautifully prepared, genuine Italian food. I think we licked the plates.

We read the reviews and decided to follow the crowd, which happened to be a big mistake... The place itself has a nice atmosphere and nice design. But this is all where it goes. We both ordered a fish fillet and received a very thin round chunk of fish which was cut right from the middle of the fish. The... More

Like others have said previously, good Italian fare at prices that are reasonable. Setting is good and the large TV screen is not a distraction if you don't want to watch it. Pasta and fish dishes are very good and well presented. Coco rico's is well established in Cahuita and has justifiably retained it's popularity over the years. Like many... More

Nice Italian food, pizza and more. Outdoor seating with nice atmosphere, good service and friendly. We ate here a few times and enjoyed the quality of food and the prices. Situated on the north end of the main street amongst souvennir shops. Great people watching.

Very nice open air Italian restaurant that had Spanish subtitled American movies at 7:30 p.m. Also a selection of mixed drinks , two for the price of one. ($3 per drink) Pizza was great. Michael, the owner, provides fun friendly service. Nice and clean place with tablecloths.

Cocorico offers great Italian food (Pizza, Pasta, Fish and Seafood) in a comfortable environment. The pizza offers a nice view on the center of Cahuita, a dramy little Carribean village. Lateron, the put in English language DVDs of recent blockbusters, which can be finished with a cool beer or a nice cocktail in your hand. Great quality and reasonable prices... More

Very good Italian food. Fresh pasts dishes. Cold beer. Even movies on a large projection screen at 7:30. Liked it enough to return the next night.

We try to make it to Cahuita for a week every March and September and eat at Cocorico no less than 3 times a week. The service is always impeccable. Michel, the owner, makes you feel at home, no matter where you are from. Both the Hawaiiana pizza and Cahuita pizza are too die for. The caprese salad and gnocchi... More

We enjoyed our meal here. I had pizza which was nice but not the best pizza in Cahuita! The service was quick and courteous but not the friendliest. It was nice but not enough to call us back for second helpings.
