My husband and I got married in Playa Flamingo on Feb 7th, 2017 and we had over 50 people join us from Toronto, Rhode Island, Playa del Carmen and Arizona and most of them had a chance to eat at Coco Loco as did we. We just loved it and it deserves to be the number one restaurant in the... More

Coco Loco is in the perfect location. Set on flamingo beach, you can walk to it, watch the sunset and get excellent drinks and food. Good presentation, substantial servings and good service from the staff. highly recommended for lunch, snacks or dinner

We had a large group for our first night in Playa Flamingo. The 10 of us were blown away by our service and the food. For a small kitchen, these chefs whip up some stellar dishes! We went back twice as a couple for sunset dinners as our house was a short walk down the beach. Sea Bass was divine!

Delicious local cuisine at reasonable prices. Wonderful cocktails and great service. Such a nice place to hang out and listen to the waves while enjoying a meal. We were a big group of 9 and all of our meals were served together.

Had an amazing lunch on the beach! The ceciche is amazing.... it's a meal on its own! We also had the tuna tacos and Mahi Mahi sandwich....both incredible! The crazy lemonade is also great....very refreshing after a long walk on the beach. Great atmosphere and food....we love it here!

Ended up there twice because we just enjoyed it that much. Won't say the food is spectacular but the atmosphere makes it taste great. Just a nice find.
