The most stylish place in Puerto Viejo but also with great service and good food. Portions where bigger than expected so that the starter was taken home. Was easily done without any strange looks. Even with family a good place to eat and to enjoy

This restaurant was amazing an absolute must if you are in puerto viejo. There was 13 of and we didn't have a reservation and they had us seated all together in about 5 minutes. Food was absolutely delicious and we literally saw a sloth climbing on the roof, so cool.

The shrimp tacos may be the best I'v ever had. Great place to have a beer and listen to Caribbean music and chill out.

This restaurant was an absolute pleasure to go to. A little bit fancy,but not to much, just across from the sea. Staff was really professional, but also approchable! Food was absolutely amazing, my friend had the seabass with calamari on and I had the skillet, both were so tasty! Really, I would recommend this experience to anyone!

We had an amazing night with the best food and great drinks. The location is a plus 10. The bar and the interior are just amazing, I wish we would have such a cool place at home. The food is healthy and extremely tasty.

This place is definitely one to splurge on at least one time while you're in PV. The decor is simply gorgeous. The service was excellent. The food was INCREDIBLY delicious and special. This is the most expensive restaurant I found in PV but worth the cost and still much less expensive than it would be in the states. Our server... More

Open air dining but with a roof in case of a downpour. Service was excellent, drinks great and meal was delicious. Price was moderate (not cheap) but worth the cost. The decor was truly spectacular and could have taken it home but wouldn't fit in carry-on! Best meal we had in Puerto Viejo. Food locally grown and presentation of the... More

It's the only place in puerto viejo that looks stylish,but that doesn't mean we have to pay twise for it. The ceviche was excellent and the pina volada was great.. But the chicken breast and a another starter dish was so so. The service was very slow..

Our prices are set based on our expenses and overhead. We serve the best quality we can get our hands on locally and organic whenever possible. We realized of course when we designed Koki that our price point would not be comfortable with some. However, compared to other restaurants in our class in the area and in Costa Rica in... More
