Got a recommendation from the concierge at our hotel and visited the best beach in the area Flamingo Beach. Coco Loco is located at the far end of the beach and is a fantastic restaurant with lots of fresh choices of fish beef and vegetarian items. Super friendly staff and quick-service highlighted the meal of ceviche, shrimp and fried fish,... More

Back to this place for the third year. It's our little spot on flamingo. The view is to die for. The sunset is amazing. The food is consistent. It is good. It is fairly priced. The service could be improved upon.

We loved this place. Had a great sunset dinner for 4 on the beach. Terrific drinks and really delicious food. Their signature Coco Loco cocktail served in a coconut can't be missed. Really varied and interesting menu. Very good service. Highly recommended

We went for dinner and it was amazing. Everything we ordered was delicious and presented beautifully. I had the sirloin, which was served with chimichurri and a hot volcanic rock. I was able to "cook" the meat a little more at the table. The loco coco drink was soooo good! The peach BBQ ribs amazing as well. We also ordered... More

Great little restaurant and bar. We stopped here daily as part of our walk up the beach. The drinks are a little pricey, but location, location. Good food and excellent service. Sunsets are stunning from here !

After a day at Flamingo Beach, there is NO better way to end your day than dining at Coco Loco. Outstanding food with the best atmosphere (right on the beach with sand under your feet) and view. Watch the sun set enjoying their Coco Loco drink, dining on sea bass, shrimp, salads and tacos. If you like Sea Bass, you... More
