Yum. I loved my meal plus 2 for 1 cocktails! Does it get any better? How about a couple comfy couches and a movie? This is a great little place and I think I'll go back to try the pizza!

Nice restaurant - atmosphere a minus with all the t.v's playing news. Terrace seating, great pizza, service slow due to being under staffed. Has a lot of potential, turn off the news, hire some more help, and this place could be awesome.

We stopped in here without knowing anything about the place. Our first choice was all booked up. (That one was #1 on tripadvisor) We were so happy with everything! The margaritas were VERY good, and we are picky about that...and price was 2 for 1, so reasonably priced. My husband ordered pepperoni pizza and I ordered a mixtus salad and... More

This restaurant has the distinction of showing movies as well as serving first class Italian cuisine. I had the red snapper and my travel companion the freshly cooked ravioli which was super-delicious. Michael, the owner, also did the serving and went out of his way to offer to drive us back to our hotel when a torrential downpour surprised us... More

A wide range of things to choose from the menu. So that's fine! The service was quite fast. We were really hungry so everything tasted okay ;-). My pizza was not freshly made :-(. It came clearly out off the freezer (too much of industrial look to it ;-) ). But the taste was not bad...

We had passed Cocorico several times and were intrigued by 'Movie Night' offerings. On our last night in Cahuita I insisted we eat there. It wasn't a movie night, but we enjoyed beautifully prepared, genuine Italian food. I think we licked the plates.

We read the reviews and decided to follow the crowd, which happened to be a big mistake... The place itself has a nice atmosphere and nice design. But this is all where it goes. We both ordered a fish fillet and received a very thin round chunk of fish which was cut right from the middle of the fish. The... More

Like others have said previously, good Italian fare at prices that are reasonable. Setting is good and the large TV screen is not a distraction if you don't want to watch it. Pasta and fish dishes are very good and well presented. Coco rico's is well established in Cahuita and has justifiably retained it's popularity over the years. Like many... More

Nice Italian food, pizza and more. Outdoor seating with nice atmosphere, good service and friendly. We ate here a few times and enjoyed the quality of food and the prices. Situated on the north end of the main street amongst souvennir shops. Great people watching.

Thank jimimy
