Liked the place and set up. Food was too spicy for my taste. Excelent concept and the drinks were great.

“Memorable experience”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We checked out TA to determine where to eat in Spanish Town, thankfully decided on Cocomayo and loved the experience. Sweet Ice Willie transported us in his open sided, air conditioned taxi, which only added to the enjoyment of the evening.
We felt we had over eaten else where, with huge portions being served but here we chose from the Tapas menu and really enjoyed the food, duck, chicken satay, salmon fish cakes, pork, all very tasty and beautifully presented. Sweets were amazing too.
we finished our evening sitting on beautiful loungers around the pit burners, everyone happy to chat and share their BVI stories.
the design of Cocomayo is stunning, staff very friendly and attentive, wine list extensive, food superb and ambience just right.

“Could be better”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The lighting was harsh under the down lights and non-existent in the center of the main dining room. The music was grunge and not very pleasant. The sushi was outstanding but the pad thai was too heavy with an herb that was not appealing. The fish taco tapas were superior. Make a reservation for 6:30 so you can enjoy the sunset.

“Go for a drink, eat before.”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Good : As everyone can agree, the location and actual building is stunning. Loved the building, but got v.sandy on the way to the bar (no path just loose sand). The bar tenders were friendly and very good. Made us different requests when we couldnt decide what to go with, our favourite was a 'blue tasty girly drink'! The wait staff (attractive girls in short skirts) have clearly been trained, which is always a plus and they could teach other places in VG about this.
.
The Bad : The food (Tapas). I'm sure it was made for someone, just not me. It was pricey, but I dont really mind price if I can eat it. I don't like ginger and I don't like cucumber (i think the chef does). Weird fusion of asian and latin (I like latin food and some asian foods, but together it was weird and nothing jumped off the menu). My selection was more 'what can i order with out omitting to many things', than 'ooh that sounds tasty'. There's service charge at the bar!(weird??).
I loved the plum sake.

Overall : Good location, lovely architecture, great bar and bartenders, and pretty girls bring you expensive food that will not fill you, but places like this rarely cater to people who actual eat. (We followed some patrons from the bar to get a delicious roasted chicken and pastries at a bakery afters).
