“YUM!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Honestly, I agree with the review of Gamevod almost word for word. This place is not for everyone. Those looking for a low key dining experience on the water will be thrilled with this place! First of all, the GIANT Coco Loco drink, served in a real coconut, was delicious. Next was the crab salad (my husband had the shrimp salad, and we shared). Who knew crab would taste so delicious in cream cheese??? The view on the beautiful Sunday afternoon I was there was breathtaking (as long as you don't look at the run down, deserted building next door). For us, it was well worth the walk from the other end of Isla Verde. Attentive staff, delicious, innovative food, and a location that will make you think you are in heaven. Loved it!

“Classy restaurant on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

On the more expensive side, but totally worth it for the location. Local drink specials, delicious fresh fish, and fantastic dessert with great service. Our favorite restaurant in Isla Verde!

“Another diamond in the rough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We walked to this place, and didn't expect much. We were utterly surprised by the romantic atmosphere, superb service, and great food. Jorge was very accommodating, and his suggestions were right on. If you like Pina Coladas, you MUST try their Coco Loco. You will love it. Prices are a little on the high end, but worth it in all aspects. Atmosphere, scenic view, service, and food is exceptional. Just don't go too often, you'll break the bank.
