“The Best Beef We've had in Costa Rica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

I was almost afraid to try beef anymore in Costa Rica when Cocolores was recommended to us. I tried the blue cheese filet and it was great (comparatively speaking of course). Our host Maximillian was awesome, the Italian wine was fantastic and the bread was tasty. The location right off the beach was super (especially the night we were there because of the full moon over the ocean).

This restaurant does not take credit cards, but it is clearly marked on their menus.

“Great food in a surfside setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Without question, the best thing I ate in Costa Rica was the Pepper steak at Coccalorres in Montezuma. The restaurant is tucked away off of "Main St". in Montezuma and is certainly worth seeking at. From the candlelit tables one can clearly hear the sound of the surf through the trees. Like most Tico restaurants the menu is plain but hearty and, like I said, the Pepper steak was superb!

“Out of this world ceviche with pico de gallo & chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Located on the beach in the Southeast corner of the one block "downtown". Also had a wonderful spaghetti carbonara. Take cash - no credit cards. Take more cash because the local ATM only works occasionally.

“Overrated and overcooked”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We heard great things about this place but were very disappointed. The fish stew was very overcooked. The crevice was ok but not as good as expected.
