Upscale Caribbean Fare with great service. Incredible variety of mojitos in the bar. The food menu includes local favorites with a very original twist. Good size portions. Excellent personal service and wonderful ambiance

I was excited to go to Koco after hearing great things about the chef. It was a lovely space and had a low light atmosphere which made it a bit challenging to see what you were eating. I had the paella which was really quite bland. The seafood had decent flavor, but nothing like we'd eaten at other places and... More

My wife and I had dinner prior to our cruise. It was excellent in food quality, presentation and taste. Our server was outstanding.

Went here for the atmosphere and hoped food was superior. Very nice atmosphere and very good service . Of course that could be bc it was practically empty but it's off season so ... We had the chicken dumplings which were yummy. I then tried to have the surf and turf but they didn't have any filet mignon...? They substituted... More

Very good food with great presentation. Service excellent and great drinks from their full bar. Atmosphere is nice. Definitely not cheap but worth the money. The menu is limited in offerings but all dishes are good.

We came to Koco twice in a single week. Fine cuisine (especially the seafood), elegant presentation, full bar, relaxing atmosphere, friendly and attentive service. We're looking forward to our next visit!

Had the blackened tuna, which the waitress recommended. It was wonderful; soft as butter, served with sweet plantains and asparagus tempura. Caribbean salad was very tasty and large enough for two of us. Chocolate-Koco for desert was incredible.

It was a Saturday night at about 10pm. We didn't have a reservation, but we were still seated right away. It was my cousin's bday. We flew to P. R. To celebrate. Koco is supposed to be a fusion of Caribbean and Latin influences. I saw more Asian influences than anything. This was our 3rd and last night on the... More

Another hotel restaurant,nice music playing. It wasn't crowded here,maybe 6 other people,so it was quiet. The food here was food,even though the seafood was not local. A bit pricey. food tax is 10%!
