The reviews are about 2 different places. One in the middle of a Mountainous town, Ciudad Quesada, and another about a beachside restaurant!

We went on Sunday. It was full and busy. Only two servers providing service, they were polite, but too busy to attend request in a timely manner. Food was ok.

I enjoyed a nice lunch here with a friend. People from the US, the thing you must understand is that beef in Costa Rica is very different from beef in the USA. The flavor is good, but the meat is not as tender as a...steak you will get in the US. With that being said, this is a nice place across the park from the Catholic church. Service was good, I liked the food, and prices were fair.More

Come here every year. First time had wrong order. Fresca drink was good and my steak really good. Wife’s food was fine. I enjoy the view of the park while I enjoy conversation and food. A romantic mini get away in this city.

I have been eating at Coca Loca for about 4 years now. The thing that separates them from everyone else is the consistency. Their beef cuts have always been of great quality and it has remained great. Service is great and they always make you...feel welcome. Personally for me a great restaurant is somewhere that leave with a happy stomach and a happy heart. I always leave Coca Loca happy.More

Good food, Ok price, service needs improvement. We had a late dinner, around 8:30 pm and it seemed like the waitress have had a long shift. She wasn’t that friendly but food was great. My advice, get more staff to avoid work overload. (Jalapeño sauce...stake was great)More

Excellent meat, among the best you can get in Costa Rica. If you are a meat lover, this is the place to go in San Carlos, and I would say one of the best in the country. Enjoy!!
