Our first night in Coco, we were starving and this was the only place open, and we were the only ones dining at that time (there were some locals at the bar). I'm in the bar and restaurant industry and while I expect certain things to happen in a kitchen, I guess I don't expect to actually witness them happening. The cook would wipe his hands on a black, dirty towel (that may have at one time been white) while cooking our meals. Then he used the same dirty towel to clean the equipment afterward and close up. It was gross!
That said, I ate it anyway and the food was actually good (did I mention I was starving?). The next two mornings, we ate at the breakfast buffet. It was more than reasonably priced and had a solid selection of basic breakfast foods - eggs, fruit, toast, sausage, and for those wanting a CR breakfast tortilla and rice and beans. Coffee was plentiful and service was wonderful.
I would come here again for breakfast but NEVER again for dinner after what I saw. It is CR and there are cleaner, better restaurants out there.
