The atmosphere isn't that wonderful but the restaurant is beside the pool with a fountain and that helps to drown out some of the noise. It is very informal and definitely the best Asian food I've tasted in a long time. I believe they have a Philipino cook.

Happened to notice a hotel and restaurant attached to a small grocery store off the Main Street. We were delighted when we entered an oasis of serenity in a lovely poolside setting. The service and food were both excellent! Highly recommend this spot to relax and get out of the heat and away from main street Coco!

mahi mahi casado and an aquarium sized mojito was a great dinner. quiet outdoor dining around a beautiful pool and fountain. traveling solo i like places that are comfortable and feel cozy but still allow conversation with other tables. nice waiter, good food, great mojito.

The sushi is always made with quality, fresh fish & tastes amazing. Everything that I have tried on the menu has been delicious. The staff is very friendly & make you feel at home in their country. Great place to have a few drinks & meet new friends.

We went here to watch the Super Bowl and were surprised by the sushi boat and the Bocas while it might be a little bit expensive it was very good for a special occasion.

This has been my go to place in Coco for sushi for several years. Went with the family (daughter and 2 grandkids) for sushi and needed a kid friendly menu. This filled the bill! Really fresh fish. Beautifully presented. The rest of the menu provided good choices for those not eating sushi. The service was good and kid friendly. The... More

The sushi chef was formally at the Four Seasons Resort across the bay on Peninsula Papagayo, he knows his stuff. Staff is excellent, very friendly and helpful. Rooms are small but clean and inexpensive. Great place!

Had a meal here with the bff. Sushi was good and fresh but WAY expensive. The pai Thai was a bit sweet for my taste and lacked any heat at all.

Excellent food and drinks, great service and friendly people. Loved having a pool right next to the restaurant and bar. Not only does the hotel have a great location near the beach but a small 24 hour grocery store is in the front for anything you may need at any given hour.

I actually own a hotel and restaurant nearby and Coco Palms is one of my favorites anyway. All the locals go there for that awesome sushi. Great chef and staff. Adrian and Maria are two of the wait staff there who really work to make u feel welcome. It's a must when u visit Coco.
