The place is nice, in downtown Quepos..with nice music, and it is clean. Normal prices for a touristic area, not cheap..either expensive. The food is good and tasty, big meals! They could improve a bit the service..more friendly and fast?! ..even though isn't that bad!

Located one block off the main street. Slightly less expensive than restaurants on the main road. They had a trivia game going on the night we were there. Good crowd and fun questions - kept everyone entertained. Mini wraps and tacos were good. Four beers and food was 16,000 colones.

We enjoyed our meal at Dos Locos. The food was good and the prices reasonable. The person who spent $50.00 here was either not alone or is a relative of Mr. Creosote. The restaurant is on a street corner in downtown Quepos. Traffic and noise are to be expected. The previously mentioned sewer smell should be gone as a major... More

While I was disappointed in the downtown area of Quepos this was a fun local restaurant with great local seafood. The whole fried red snapper was delicious and worth a visit to try

Nice place within the city center to watch people passing by. Mexican food was good, served quickly and the portions are big enough for when you are hungry. The service is not perfect. Slightly unfriendly and unmotivated. Good place to come for an easy (and quick) dinner.

Total ripoff! One of those places that sees the Gringoes coming and charges accordinaly. Paid $50.00 for a very mediocre lunch of soupy frijoles, unseasoned rice, yesterday's fish tacos, and a chicken enchilada that had no cheese-flavorless, slapped together food. Plus you are seated next to an open street canal drain that every once in a while would waft up... More

First of our waitress was on her phone most of the night. I told her in English and Spanish that I wanted the Enchilada without meat and when I got it with meat and asked to return it she said that I never told her. The food was just average, and not worth the expensive price tags. The waitress paid... More

Dos Locos is located on the main street in Quepos near the bus station. We went on a Saturday afternoon and they had an awesome live band, the place was packed, and food was good. We enjoyed their Quesadilla and nochos. I recommend seeing when the live band is playing and going then. There were great people and music there.

Don't go here! They insanely overcharge you. We ate the same type of food in many places in Manuel Antonio, Quepos and Dominical, and this place charged 3x what other places charge. It was insane.

We shared the nacho and taco plates - both very fresh and delicious. Nothing fancy but great for a casual, fun bite to eat!
