I actually own a hotel and restaurant nearby and Coco Palms is one of my favorites anyway. All the locals go there for that awesome sushi. Great chef and staff. Adrian and Maria are two of the wait staff there who really work to make u feel welcome. It's a must when u visit Coco.

Stopped in for lunch and spent several hours hanging out and relaxing. We all had the fish and chips, which never disappoint. Cold beers and margaritas. Kids were able to swim and just chill on a hot day. What we enjoy most is the friendly staff. Elmar is a wonderful chef, Adrian and Maria were excellent servers and bartenders and... More

Nice place to have a quiet, relaxing meal or snack off the busy street in Playas del Coco. The staff are incredibly friendly and accomodating.

Order draft beer get charged for a bottle. Food very high priced compared to other places. Check your bill. They add service charges and still expect a cash tip! Might be different if staying here. Nice pool. In the thick of tourism in the area.

They have a Philippino chef and I have eaten the Mongolian spicy tenderloin, I must say it was excellent and really spicy just the way I like it. Service is great too!

This was the first dinner we ate in Costa Rica. Early September and it was fairly slow. We had plenty of attention by the staff. They answered all of our questions about the menu. I really liked my chicken and mushroom dish. It was light and extremely satisfying. The mushroom sauce was delightful. My bf had the Surf and Turf... More

Each and every time I come to stay in Playa del Coco I eat here the first night (and others). The menu offers quite a large selection of food from fish to sushi to hamburgers. If you catch a fish they will prepare it for you and your table (if you want this option). There are fans overhead that keep... More
