Lively lunch crowd. Very casual seating with plenty of outdoor seating. Great place to grab a beer and quesadillas after sitting at the beach for a couple hours. The outdoor seating is great for sitting back and people watching.

This laid back restaurant is located next to the Columbia Restaurant on St. Armands Circle, Sarasota, Fl. There are seats outside where you can sit and watch the interesting people go by. We ordered the yummy coconut shrimp, voodoo ribs, and chicken wing combo which is listed as an appetizer but makes a really good main dish for $14. It was pretty crowded but service was good.

One of our favorite restaurants at St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota, Florida, Cha Cha Coconuts is always fun with yummy food. A huge variety of drinks, and an even larger menu (almost TOO much to choose from!). We are usually there with the lunch crowd, which isn't as hectic as it is at dinner.

Although it's nice to sit outside, this is one of the busier sections (walking and driving) in St. Armand's, so it's customary to have your table jostled by one of the passer-bys, or end up with a screaming headache from the traffic. Recommended that you sit inside near the entrance and enjoy the outdoors while being steps away from the "rat race."

Service is always great, food is even better, and a fun time is had by all. Enjoy!

We have missed going to Cha Cha's for our traditional long island iced teas. When we tried on Halloween it was packed to the rafters. Grouper is back on the menu and delicious as ever. Love the frenc fries, the black beans and rice, the fried plantains.

We visit Cha Cha Coconuts about once every other week. The Happy Hour from 4-7 M-F is really a great value with $2 Coronas, dollar drafts, nice deals on mixed drinks, etc. The food is hit or miss but they frequently have some good live music. It's fun to sit out on the sidewalk and watch the people walk by. A really nice break from the other more expensive places on St. Armand's Circle.
