Great location for a restaurant. It is right on the beach, and the view is of the sand, the bay and some boats. Nice place to see a sunset. The food was pretty good. Two of us ordered the house specialty - the Loco Coco - a seafood rice dish served in a coconut. One of us ordered the fish... More

This outdoor, on the beach, (chairs, benches and beanbags) restaurant is cool with fab food and drinks... they work to accommodate any drink order and will help you select a dish right for you. Fish and Chips, burgers, salads and all around yummy food is a fun place for a cpl or families.

Great for a drink, snacks or lunch. Located in the heart of Playa Flamingo and on the beach. Great food, great service and fairly priced.

My daughter and I walked down to Flamingo Beach from where we were staying in Playa Potrero to have lunch at Coco Loco’s and liked it so much that we rented a golf cart later that night to go back for happy hour/sunset dinner! The first thing we ordered after our long walk was their mint lemonade w/ginger – so... More

First day in Costa Rica and had been referred to this place. So glad we listened. The restaurant has no walls. You are completely immersed in the beach atmosphere. There is a covered area and an area on the beach. While it looks like a beach bar the food is well worth the trip. You can visit here with folks... More

Our family ate at Coco Loco several times for lunch/dinner during our week stay in Flamingo. All our meals were very good and the wait staff was friendly and helpful. I think the prices are fair, Awesome Ahi fish taco's

Perfect little beach bar! Took a trip up from tamarindo with our rental car and stopped at this cool spot to grab a bite to eat and drink after hanging out at the beautiful beach. Good spot that will not disappoint! Friendly staff and great service! Had mahi mahi sandwich and was delicious. Must have was the coco loco cocktail!

We loved everything about this restaurant: the food, the drinks, the service, and the view. This is the place to come if you want excellent seafood and to watch the sunset.

Definitely amazing and cool location. Service was good. I was there with my wife and daughter during off season. It was not cheap nor was it grossly expensive. It was priced on the high side. We ordered 2 coco loco drinks, a mango smoothie and an order of guacamole and chips. This is the food/drink review: 1) mango smoothie: good.... More

What's not to like about a place right on the beach at sunset where you can drink out of a coconut? Food is very good too!
