Description: The Lookout is a seafood restaurant and oyster bar located in Playas Del Coco, Guanacaste. We are the first and only restaurant in town to stock live oysters, to be eaten raw on the half shell or prepared in a number of other ways. We are also the first and only place in town to serve Costa Rican craft beers on tap. The view from our establishment is truly priceless and the menu showcases the freshest seafood that the Pacific has to offer. We hope to see you soon!

Great place to enjoy beautiful Coco Sunsets and relax to the max with great fresh variety of seafood and other dishes and variety of local crafted Costa Rican beers and amazing ocean views! ! recommend visiting the Lookout in Playas del Coco to experience Coco at its best! I have tried most of the menu and is simply great: best tuna nachos and fish tacos! fresh oysters, delicious fresh ceviche and shrimp...!! the beers are awesome and Cocktails as well! The Watermelon Mojito is one of my favorites... so refreshing, great beer! I cant wait to visit the Lookout again and again, some fresh oysters, ocean breeze, views and everything at the Lookout is great. Excellent service!!

The food here is extremely fresh and delicious. There is usually a nice breeze coming off the ocean and it is a refreshing change from the main strip where most of the food is greasy. Go here on a date or with friends. Great open air atmosphere! Definitely a must while you are in Playas del Coco. The best selection of Costa Rican made craft beers on tap and/or in bottle……delicious and fun to stay and drink after your meal!

Food was fantastic, drinks were great, view is stunning and customer service exceeded expectations. The owner and staff aim to please and exceed expectations and this is very apparent upon arriving at the restaurant/overall hotel. There's nothing quite like this in the area. Will not disappoint.

The restaurant is located in the mountains and has an amazing view of Playa del Coco. They has 2 costa rican beers on tap and it is the only place around Coco having something other than the usual Imperial and Heineken. Raw oysters are impossible to find in Costa Rica and I'm glad now they are here. We also tried shrimp ceviche and bacon wrapped scallops. Both were great. Definitely recommend this place if you are looking for something different with a killer view.

This is by far one of the best places to eat in Coco! A MUST VISIT. My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Chantel so we decided to check out their rooftop restaurant. The food here was FANTASTIC and FRESH. The tuna poke tacos and scallops were delicious! If you love great drink specials, look no further, the Chilliguaro shots are amazing too if you want a little kickstart to your night. Great service. Great staff. This is the perfect place to hang out, eat some fabulous food, meet great people and a place to enjoy the beautiful views Playa Del Coco has to offer. We'll definitely be back for sure!
