“Awesome bar/restaurant”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Probably the most beautiful restaurant in puerto viejo, Koki beach doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the town, it's more like something you would see on Cape Cod. Relaxing on their beautiful deck in their comfy rocking chairs was great. We ordered a set of daiquiris, both excellent, as a part of their 2x1 happy hour. We also got yucca chips with guacamole - excellent!!! Definitely check this place out

“The most beautiful restaurant in Puerto Viejo”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We passed the restaurant during daytime and decided to come back in the evening because it looked so cool! The interior is fantastic and the atmosphere was warm and cosy. Not to forget the food! It was excelent! During the dinner the owner came to mostly all the tables, very nice speaking to him. Interesting to hear his story. I am dreaming of coming back to Puerto Viejo, to Koki Beach restaurant and....my secret dream: to stay at a hotel in the same wonderful style as Koki!! ;-)

Hi Catherine,

thank you for taking time out to share your experience at Koki Beach and we appreciate you opinion. You know when we opened the restaurant we decided that we wanted to do something different from what already could be found in the area and always had in mind of doing a hotel to go along with it and one day we might just do it. ; )

“Nice setting”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Puerto Viejo does not have many nice restaurants but Koki Beach is certainly worth the effort. Great cocktails and nice menu. Go for the Koki Burger you will enjoy it...
No cheap restaurant, nice view. Overall good.

Hi Michael,

So happy to hear you enjoyed your visit @ Koki and seeing you live in San Jose we certainly hope to see you back soon again. Keep in mind the fall is a wonderful time to visit the Caribbean coast since we get very little rain during these months in case you want to exchange the hustle and bustle of the capital for our relaxing ocean front terrace

LOVED the ambiance and sea view. This place is perfect - you get to sit back with a beautiful ocean view while sipping a mojito.

Reviewed August 2, 2012

My girlfriend and I came here for their happy hour deal, and really enjoyed it. We ordered daiquiri's, and they were STRONG! Also got an order of yucca chips and guacamole - excellent.

the deck is so relaxing, and the rocking chairs are super comfortable. definitely a place to stop by, at least for a drink!
