The paella and ceviche were excellent! Definitely recommend it … prices were ok, but pricier than a typical "soda".

This place is a little tough to find, but ask the locals and they're super helpful and friendly. It's located next door and a little bit behind the biggest little market in the center of the town. It's the very first street behind the beach. We asked for a couple of recommendations on the best places in Playa Samara and every person recommended Colochos for their ceviche. I am typically not a big fan of ceviche since it comes with a huge mix of random seafood so I was a bit hesitant to try it. After one bite, we were in love! Definitely one of the most affordable places in Samara and one of the yummiest! Oh! And their lemonade was the best! So refreshing!

It took a couple of tries to find this place, but the ceviche was so worth it. It was easily the best ceviche I had in my month of traveling in Costa Rica and Bocas Del Toro Panama. The chicken casado was good as well, and a very good price. It's always a good sign when a restaurant is busy with locals, as this place was!

Ordered the paella and casado. Our 8 year old said of the paella "a little bite of heaven". Good food but on the greasy side. Large portions.

Colochos used to sell his famous ceviche on the road in the center of town and now has his own local restaurant. It is one of the most affordable places in town and a true, authentic experience.
