Coco Bistro is set among large palm trees decorated with lights making for a cool outdoor setting. The restaurant was full and we were lucky to get an 8:30 reservation (our concierge called). We ordered the conch ceviche, tuna and scallops (separately) for dinner. The...food was well seasoned and tasty. Of course it was pricey-everything in TCI is pricey. I will say the mixed specialty island drinks were not that great-very very sugary. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and she received a beautiful chocolate and vanilla ice cream dessert with a candle and the birthday song. Coco Bistro was the best meal we had on the island.More

Took my family to CB as the dining highlight of our trip to Provo. This was one of the more beautiful settings we have ever dined at and the food was really good. Highs We loved the setting & ambiance. We made reservations a little...over one week out but were able to get a table at 8pm. I would suggest dining after 7:30pm as it was borderline hot, even after dark. The food was really good and the appetizers were amazing. Lows I was a little disappointed with the service. We ordered a cocktail to start the dinner but never got a chance to order another. We did have a bottle of wine and ended up pouring our second glasses ourselves. We did have a junior waiter that seemed to take over. Great young kid but not an experienced waiter. Lastly, waited quite a while for check. These things aren't a huge deal to me but when you have a $500+ meal, you tend to have high expectations. Again, we loved the food and the amazing setting. Top notch service to accompany those two things would have made the night perfect.More

This place books out so make reservations. Pro tip: coat yourself In Mosquito...repellent. As it’s outdoor seating which is beautiful… though like hood of getting bit….More

First came here in 2019 and returned in 2022. The food is still top notch. All of our meals were good and the seating among the palm trees is nice. This was by far the best service we received amongst the other restaurants we had...dinner at this trip.More

This restaurant is so amazing, we ate here two nights out of the six nights on our vacation. All of the waiters and staff are very attentive and take their job very seriously. We had the skirt steak, mahi, salmon, and salads. All were delicious...and cooked to perfection. Thank you Antonio for allowing us to come back the second night.More

Keep in mind, Im from houston texas and a BIG time foodie. Booked reservations almost 2 months in advance and was super excited to try the place out. Ambiance is great and so is the service (took a minute to get refills on our waters)....Started off with the tempura lobster app and was disappointed. Lobster was extremely fishy/gamey. I had the skirt steak for the entree and it was extremely tough. Best thing on the plate was the roasted head of garlic and the charred broccolini. The best parts of the dinner were the Coco Bistro Punch cocktail (reminded me of my fav drink from Pluckers, the psychedelic frog) and the dessert (coconut pie and key lime in a cup). Also for a place that is so sought out for, there was a woman who checked in at the front. Whom said she didn’t have a reservation and would sit at the bar. And then my husband and I saw her at the table adjacent to us. I guess it doesn’t really matter much if you have a reservation or not(?).More

We made a reservation well in advance and were happy we did. We dined at Coco Bistro 13 years ago when we had been last on the Island and coming back the food is still top notch. The atmosphere has changed a bit from when...we were first here when it was a tucked away little find into something on a bigger scale. While they have made some updates it hasn't taken away from the overall original feel of the place. We had a great meal and a lovely evening with our whole family (children 8 & 12). This was again one of my top restraints on the island with a local feel which was great compared to a few that we felt were over-commercialized losing the island vibe. Staff was friendly and attentive.More

We had a wonderful, elegant evening with the family. Service is great and the food was among the best we had on the island. Everything was nicely done. The location among the trees is great. I recommend making reservations before your trip. We had trouble...getting a table for the day and time but took what we could get. The lobster rolls and shrimp curry were excellent For a lovely elegant place with great food I would highly recommendMore

This was our 3rd time at Coco Bistro over the course of a decade and each time it seems to have gone down in quality and overall experience. The food was average at best and when factoring in the cost (not cheap) there are definitely...much better restaurants to chose from on Provo. In addition, I felt as if our waiter was annoyed being a waiter and did as little as possible- nice setting but when a meal for 2 is over $250 you expect more!!More

After a long day of sun, my group and I were treated to a tranquil evening. The staff were attentive and pleasant. Lobster came into season, and the Lobster Fettuccine I had was perfectly prepared, with the pasta being a little al dente to balance...the sweetness of the lobster. The inviting atmosphere met with the fine staff and wonderful food make this a must for fine dining in Providenciales.More

Absolutely. The korean steak appetizer is fabulous and there are other meat and chicken dishes without much spice, if any.
