We were aiming for the taco place, but when we found out it was closed, we ended up here. Great choice! Very good sangria and other mixed drinks, and the food was plentiful and very tasty. No complaints here, if in Samara, would return here to eat for sure.

Had tacos here last night which were great! Prices are similar to a standard American meal out, so expensive for Costa Rica, but worth it.

We went twice during our trip tp Samara....wish we could have gone again for the fajita's but got too busy. The guy serving us both times was helpful and cheerful, very fast too. We enjoyed chicken enchilada's which came with rice, beans and salad and my hubby had a guacamole burger which was messy but delicious. We also had some... More

Right on the main street heading to the beach. Went for dinner last night. Great atmosphere and awesome unique Mexican food. Monster margaritas, cheesy yuquitas with a blackberry dipping sauce, and black & blue tacos. This is our new favourite place.Try it. You'll love it!

I have been going to cocos for more than 2 years. The food is always perfect and the owner interaction is always fun. The portions are large and tasty, the shrimp is incomparable to any other restaurant. Definitely a must go

What a fun place to eat. Great atmosphere, wonderful food. We had the fish tacos one night and they were wonderful. My brother-in-law loves the chili. We enjoyed the fajitas and margaritas. My sister-in-law had the hamburger and said it was delicious. Their salsa was so good we purchased a bucket to go! You can't miss with Coco's! Great food,... More

Don't ask me why but since we landed in CR four weeks ago, my husband had cravings for chili con carne. A dish you don't find on menus around here... So when he saw that on the menu, it was a done deal. Funny though, Chili con carne was described under soup... According to him, it was not exceptional but... More
