We visited with our family group of 12, making a reservation that afternoon. We were greeted with a nicely set table for our entire group, Mariachi band, and excellent service. The food was great, and many of us tried the authentic local dishes, by far the best and most reasonable price. I would highly recommend this place for local cuisine.

Local restaurant that serves typical "tico" cuisine. Wide variety of local meals from casados, seafoods and grilled meats. This place is at the beginning of the strip near the rusty anchor at the entrance to Coco. Probably would need to grab a taxi if you do t a rental. Meals reasonably to moderately priced. Nice portions which makes a good... More

Great environment, great service and excellent food. I had a excellent fresh fish ceviche. From the road you only see the bar, the restaurant is behind it.

This is a good place to eat fresh fish and way more cheaper than in other restaurants in Playas del Coco.

If you're tired of the craziness of downtown Coco, head on out to Milanes near the anchor at the entrance to Coco. You won't be disappointed. Very extensive menu of typical and seafood specialties. They have a little bar out front that is usually standing-room only. Definitely put this place on your list for a true local experience a step... More

Very nice restaurant with play area for the kids, we ordered the shrimp and rice which was great! Our server spoke English and was very friendly. They also have a bar out front that was packed with locals watching a soccer match. Best meal of our trip!
