Ate here one evening, good sized menu with typical Mexican cuisine. Large restaurant so no reservations required. One of us had a quesadilla and the rest of us had burritos and tacos. All were good, food arrived quickly...service was excellent.

Four of us had dinner here and we all enjoyed our meals. Tacos, salad, burgers were all delicious and freshly prepared. Very nice setting, back a bit from the road so fairly quiet. The prices were very reasonable and service was good. We took advantage of their happy hour monster margueritas and they were delicious!

Ate at Coco's twice. Food was so good the first time we went back again. Nice outside atmosphere, saw a hummingbird while waiting for our food. Try the monster Margarita

We ate at Cocos two nights. The first night both my boyfriend and I had the chicken fajitas. They were supposed to come with guacamole but that night they had run out. We ordered a ceviche appetizer but the waitress failed to bring it. The fajitas came with lots of onions Bell peppers chicken and grease. The tortillas were nice... More

We were surprised to find out that Costa Rica only has fried tortillas as chips. This restaurant had it all and it was delish! Margies were not so bad either ;) Kids and I enjoyed everything.

Great mexican food and atmosphere. They also have huge burgers! The food is made fresh so there is usually a bit of a wait for the meals but it's worth it. Large portions. Friendly staff.

After reading reviews of Coco's, we were excited and famished for a big meal with meat. Coco's absolutely delivered! My two kids loved every bite of their burgers and the enchiladas were top notch. The food portion size is large and the waitress was kind, helpful and accurate with our orders. We will be back to Coco's!

Coco's is a popular, outdoor restaurant under the trees in Samara Costa Rica. The mostly Mexican menu has variety and the fruit smoothies and drinks were delicious. The service is friendly with staff speaking Spanish and English. The Caribbean Salad was really great. The food delivery was not rocket fast, but we never felt like it was slow. Our drinks... More

My girlfriend and I ate at Coco's on a Sunday. It was pretty full and they were short staff. As a logical result, some orders were lost in the process and staff was overwhelmed with some stupid clients non-stop complaining about the delay. Food-wise, it was great. Portions were huge, drinks were awesome and service was decent.

Well they do live up to serving the coldest beer in town. The food is good and portion fair. They have a larger selection then another Mexican restraint I have seen so far in Costa Rica. Weather you want a taco or a burrito they have it here. Even just the chips alone are worth the visit.
