“Best steak in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is the second time my wife has ordered steak here, the last being in 2011. She shared some with me and it was truly delicious. I had the large shrimp and they were very good as well. The breeze does not seem to always penetrate this seaside local, but the food is great.

“Good Food with a nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We ate at Cocolores once during our week in Montezuma. I wanted something other than a casada that it seemed we'd been eating all week. I had an appetizer of bruchetta which was outstanding and for dinner, the pasta carbonara which was delicious. My husband wasn't feeling well and stuck with the grilled chicken, which he enjoyed as well. We sat outside right near the beach. The atmosphere is quite nice with the waves lapping on the beach and the dim lighting. Service was very good and the price was reasonable. Certainly more expensive than the casadas at the Sodas, however well cheaper than you'd pay for the same dinner in the states. Bring cash, no CCs.

“Excellent service reliably good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I've been visiting this restaurant several times annually since 2001. The host is always quick to greet you at the entrance and welcome you in. The setting hasn't changed much over the years, but there's no need it is perfectly charming. The food is always excellent and the bartender absolutely knows how to make a cocktail. Love this place!

“The Best Beef We've had in Costa Rica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

I was almost afraid to try beef anymore in Costa Rica when Cocolores was recommended to us. I tried the blue cheese filet and it was great (comparatively speaking of course). Our host Maximillian was awesome, the Italian wine was fantastic and the bread was tasty. The location right off the beach was super (especially the night we were there because of the full moon over the ocean).

This restaurant does not take credit cards, but it is clearly marked on their menus.
