Recently stayed at Flamingo Beach Resort, and walked down the beach to Coco Loco late one afternoon. My wife and I were seated right out on the beach, with a fantastic view of the sunset over the Pacific. The food was very good. We had the mixed plantain and yucca chips, and they were incredibly light and crisp, not oily... More

Cool, good food and nice drinks. Great to watch sunsets with a beer and some grilled fish and fries. Better walk to go there or use a bicycle because parking is really not convenient.

The place and food are incredible... you have to try the "Loco Coco". The service is regular, prizes are fair. A place to come back again.

This is a popular tourist restaurant especially at sunset. There are tables designed to look out at the beach and enjoy the view. The menu is basic, but good. Fun drinks as well.

Had lunch while visiting Flamingo Beach. Three of us ordered the burgers. Hand made Black Angus burgers on a brioche bun, how could you go wrong? We weren't disappointed. The fish taco is tasty but the tortilla is deep fried. Fries are very good Three things to remember: When ordering the burger, they will default to medium rare. If you... More

We've been to coco loco 3 times this past week and I'm sure we will return this coming week. Food is sooo good! Kids loved the food too. Nice to eat right on beautiful Flamingo Beach.

Great food at the end of what was already a wonderful day that started in Tamarindo Beach. Coco Loco has a vast menu with many wonderful Costa Rican dishes. Be sure to try the signature Loco Coco with mussels, shrimp and fresh fish all served in a coconut shell ~ memorable to say the least!

As always the food is great along with the service. And you will probably not experience a sunset dinner like the one a Coco Loco. We eat here every year and the food keeps getting better and better.
