Nice restaurant in town. The tacos are good but the pineapple salsa that comes with them is great. Can be really hot at night, doesn't get any ocean breeze.get

We just had dinner yday at this restaurant, had two margarita (needed very long to arrive, one came first and than 10 min later the other one arrived, all of this after at least 30 min... It was fine I don't mind waiting.)
But the food which arrived even much later, big nachos with beef n chicken quesadillas, don't order any of them. Nachos over fat, if u like it the American way full of fat than go for it, as the nachos seems r fresh home made in oil n still full of it. Quesadillas are eatable but we had better ones.
All in all if u are used to extra big portions of fat food is great, if u are more looking for quality avoid this place!

We stopped in Coco's twice during our stay in Sámara. There were a few things that made an impression on us. First, the menu seemed conceived in the suburbs of the US, which wasn't what we were looking for. But the quality of the tacos were a welcome surprise. The meats were savory and the portions plentiful. Very satisfying. But the mango and pineapple salsas that came with them stood out even more. The tacos were worth ordering just for that. As well as the fantastically simple guacamole and the warm, spicy red pepper sauce the owner insisted we try. He was right, that local secret sauce is great.

Drinks were slow to arrive and they could have been colder, but maybe it was simply an off night for the staff.

We had fast and friendly service at Coco's and enjoyed the surroundings--shaded by palm trees, palapas, and colorful umbrellas; decorated with recycled materials and cute natural wood table; and cooled by overhead fans.

All of us enjoyed our food. We had the ceviche-filled avocado, fish tacos (with spicy but delicious mango salsa), nachos, and chicken quesadillas. Everything was tasty. We also enjoyed the 2 for 1 margarita deal they run all day every Sunday!
