Cocos is a cozy oasis of comfort nestled among large resorts. One of the (many) things you won’t get at those behemoths is a live-in owner who is available to guests every day—a big plus as far as personal attention and first-class operation. The restaurant is worthy of its own review. Testimony to its high quality is daily patronage by locals who are not guests. They trek in from the surrounding area to dine at Cocos. And there are also a few refugees from the all-inclusives, who have tired of the institutional approach to food. Cocos’ wood-burning oven turns out scrumptious pizzas, as well as melt-in-your-mouth braised pork. Check out the fresh fish (both fillets or garlic-fried whole), the marinated flank steak (arrachera), and the caprese salad. Try as I did, I wasn’t able to work my way through the entire menu during my stay. All the more reason for a return visit!…
What a lovely spot this place is! My husband and I along with two friends enjoyed a memorable night at Cocoa Cabanas. The setting was a little piece of paradise with a lush garden with a meandering trail through it and even a parrot or maybe it was a budgie...I’m not quite sure. It is a boutique hotel/restaurant and the owner welcomed us graciously and seated us in the restaurant. Although the restaurant area is small (there are no more than 10 tables I think) it makes for an intimate feeling of visiting a friends home with a professional chef! The drinks were delicious and the food uncompromising on quality...so flavourful! Our friends both had the fried fish..a meal for a king...and I had the chef’s crab stuffed fish...one of the best meals I have ever eaten! You won’t be disappointed if you go. I can’t wait to be back!…
Beautiful ambience. Great setting. Amazing service. Food was spectacular. Desserts were out of this world and Silvia and Helmut go out of their way to make your experience great. You need to try the special margaritas. They are out of this world!!! We can hardly wait for our next visit
So we are back at Cocos as I type this. I think this is either our 4th or possibly 5th visit since we discovered this hidden gem of a hotel/resort/restaurant . Silvia and Helmut are the most friendly gracious hosts you could ever wish to meet . The food is literally to die for , everything on the menu is beautifully made , presented and tasty. You have to try the wood fired pizzas and calzones . .Calm relaxing pool and dining area and the sandy beach is a two minute walk away . Come for lunch/dinner I guarantee you will want to stay . Well kept cabanas for your stay are more than you need . All the staff are attentive and ready to help you enjoy your stay . It has to be good if we keep coming back . Avoid the crowds and noise of the big resorts try Cocos you won’t be disappointed .…
This restaurant was in a cute little area next to the beach and had amazing food. When you walk in there are some small birds and an adorable cute dog that you can stroke. After that we sat down and at our food which was amazing and for dessert you can get a delicious Nutella and fruit pizza. So overall it was an incredible place to go!
I went out for dinner and the food was so amazing, the fish was probably the best dish I have ever had! The area was super small and cute and it was a nice style! I would definitely recommend the fresh fish of the day, and there wood fire pizzas where delicious.
My wife and I took a last minute trip to Playa (which we have been many times ). Literally decided Monday, and flew out Thursday. Sliva, family and staff are so welcoming and helpful. It is a small quite, clean, romantic place, right off the beach. Restaurant is top notch, quality and service. Breakfast is included with your stay. Highly recommended! Thank you so much for the memories, we will return when in the area.
We got tired of the food in our resort and found this amazing restaurant. Really friendly staff and passionfruit margaritas to die for. Take me back! We ate there four or five times on our one week holiday, I cannot sing its praises highly enough. All of the Mexican food was delicious, the pizzas as good as any I’ve had, but the real highlights that I will remember forever were the freshly caught fish on special one day, the tuna tostada and the banana and coconut ice cream desert. If you are staying in Playa Del Carmen make sure you have at least one lunch or dinner at this absolute jewel of a restaurant.
This place is a hidden jewel!! Barret and Iliana are the most hospitable hosts and made us so welcome we were like friends after the first few days. We stayed in the cabanas…eight studio suites facing into a central courtyard and pool. Visitors quickly become friends. Grocery stores are nearby as well as shopping and the town central. Everything is within walking distance including the ocean and Malecon, a seaside walkway lined with restaurants and coffee bars. This is a place to relax and unwind. Be sure to take a tour to Coronado Island for a day out on the water sightseeing, fishing, snorkeling and swimming. We had such a wonderful time here, we will definitely be back!
We were recommended this quaint little restaurant off the beaten path in Playa Del Carmen. We arrived there and were met by Gio who showed us to our table. The setting screams Mexico. Everything was beautiful and well maintained. We ordered the pizza with the works and took no longer than 10 minutes to arrive. It was fantastic. cannot say enough about our experience at Coco's. Food was great, service was great, views are great and the price is on par with what you would normally pay elsewhere. I recommend. I took nice photos but the files are too large to upload
