“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We had drinks there but were misleaded by the happy hour as it appeared to be only for a few options. It took ages before the drinks were served. Luckily you have a lot to watch as people stroll by. We skipped the food because of the disappointing service.

Thank you for taking time out to share your opinion and we appreciate our clients feed back good or bad. We are however curios as to how you can rate our food - 3 stars - when you say you "skipped the food "?

Next time you are in town you are more then welcome to stop by and have a drink on the house.

The atmosphere was very good and the service was great. The quality of the food was good as well! A reccomendation when you are in Puerto Viejo de Tamarindo!

“Looks good, but tastes bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We went to Koki Beach Restaurant and Bar, because we were walking and I was extremely hungry. If this review was for atmosphere and looks, I would give this an excellent rating. However, people go to restaurants to eat, and the food here was disgusting. We ordered calamari appetizer, vegetable rice, spring rolls and a shrimp entree. Every single dish tasted like it was a frozen dinner from the grocery store. This was the most expensive restaurant we went to, and it had by far the worst food. If you want to experience Koki, just heat up something frozen at home, and save yourself some money.

“Great service with fun vibe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The service was excellent, the food was good, the vibe was fun! Happy hour on the deck at KOKi Beach is a really nice way to start an evening in PV.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Fantastic service and food quality was truly wonderful. A delightful find in Puerto Vieja. Pride in service and quality preparation was evident. Pricey for Costa Rica because you're getting what you're paying for. Great place for a quality meal
