We went there on Valentine's Day and had the special 3 course meal. We were seated right on the water! Our waiter Cory was super attentive and catered to our every need. Our dinner included lobster bisque which was excellent, but the main dishes were even better! I had the filet mignon which was delicious and my wife ordered the... More

Great little restaurant on the water. Good food and friendly staff. Perfect place to watch the sunset over a drink and a bite to eat.

Waited over an hour just for the appetizer. Walked out after never receiving it. Asked about it a couple of times, kept saying it was coming. They were not even that busy. Will not go back.

We were visiting with another couple for the first week in Feb. we agreed that each person had to pick the restaurant for the night.. No questions asked. Fortunately I was not the one that picked this one! The view is great as it is right on the water. Literally, a portion is on a well worn dock. We had... More

We arrived at 2.00am at the end of a very long days flights from UK and were put into a tiny room 105 that was really a single room. Next day we requested a different room and Gabrielle was very good, juggled a few bookings and consigned us to room 101, which was actually fine, not a sea view, but... More

The view is amazing, the food is excellent and reasonably priced. We came here twice during our stay in Puerto Rico and the wait staff has been super friendly and attentive every time. Come here!! You won't be sorry

Great food (although) a little pricey. Great drinks too. But the best part has got to be the location and atmosphere. You know that relaxed place with a great view of the sunset you were thinking about when you came to PR? Yeah, this is it. Coco locos for life.

Hidden gem of Isla Verde. View is incredible especially daytime, vibe and feel is very laid back and easy. Sit on the terrace with waves crashing under your feet and enjoy drinks. Food was hit or miss - lobster risotto was awful (greasy and salty), but sandwiches were good. We came for lunch and dinner and enjoyed both times despite... More
