I had the red snapper with a roasted garlic butter. It was excellent! My daughter had the swordfish, which she also thought was excellent. Not sure what anyone else in my group had because I was too busy enjoying mine! Everyone in our group had a great meal, though.

We stopped for lunch and drinks. The swordfish with orange pepper sauce and the Ahi tuna with Valencia sauce were both fabulous with great mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables. The service was friendly and the people watching in downtown Coco was fun.

We dropped in here for drinks while our friends returned from their diving trip. A great selection of drinks with the best view of Playa Del Coco performing below you.

We were greeted by the owner who is very friendly. He made great recommendations that were first rate then catered to by excellent staff. Everything was delicious right down to the wine. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I ate here Dec 23 after a long day of travel. I sat upstairs and had a perfectly seared tuna steak. Good coffee too!
