This is a good place to eat fresh fish and way more cheaper than in other restaurants in Playas del Coco.

If you're tired of the craziness of downtown Coco, head on out to Milanes near the anchor at the entrance to Coco. You won't be disappointed. Very extensive menu of typical and seafood specialties. They have a little bar out front that is usually standing-room only. Definitely put this place on your list for a true local experience a step... More

Very nice restaurant with play area for the kids, we ordered the shrimp and rice which was great! Our server spoke English and was very friendly. They also have a bar out front that was packed with locals watching a soccer match. Best meal of our trip!

It's a very nice local restaurant. The food not bad. You simply can not go if there is a lot of people. The service its really bad if the restaurant is full. They don't serve my dinner, so pay the bill and they charge me the food. I told them that I did not eat it, they look to the... More

Our last meal in Playa. We went here on advice of one our tour guides for good ceviche. Its a short walk inland just east of the auto-mercado, and well worth it. Flavor and prices were great. Highly recommended.

Great little local restaurant. A little outside the center of town. Food was good. Had my first casado (with fish) as well as an order of patacones here and both were very good. Prices were pretty reasonable as well.

This place is on the way into Coco on the left side. It has a large outside seating area. We had ceviche, fried red snapper, lobster, and chicken. The food was was very good, the price was reasonable, and although we were the only ones there for lunch, the service was good. It was recommended by locals. And so do... More

My husband and I ate lunch here on the recommendation of the hotel we were staying at. My previous visit to Costa Rica I had a meal of fresh grilled red snapper that was very memorable so I was on a quest to duplicate this meal. Unfortunately, this was not the place to find that unbelievable grilled snapper. My snapper... More
