We had the Mofongo with pernil, the Cuban Sandwich and the Coquito platter and it was all delicious! We also had the best Tres Leche we've ever had. Eat here for a unique meal.

I have been a customer to this restaurant several times. I have yet to be disappointed. Great place to stop by after a day of hiking or snorkeling. Our food has been excellent every time. The servers are friendly, and make good recommendations if you are unsure of what to order. The only dessert we tried is the tres leches,... More

We were surprised to find this Puerto Rican themed restaurant in this westside tiny town. We were a bit skeptical about it being authentic; however, were we surprised! The mufongo was fabulous and my husband really enjoyed the traditional Cuban sandwich. We would go here again although you need to get here early to park in their tiny parking lot.... More

I ate at Coquito's for lunch today. Ordered the pernil with sides of arroze con gandules, sweet plantains, and potato salad. The pernil was very flavorful, though there was too little of it (especially for the price charged) . . . this is probably my biggest complaint. The arroz con gandules was the best I've had on island by far... More

This restaurant is built in an old house with good signage and lighting. The decor is pretty rustic, but the place is clean. The menu, to me, was fairly limited, and we decided on the appy sampler and a sandwich, which we shared. The sampler was pretty much an assortment of deep fried "dumplings" with different fillings. I personally found... More

Had dinner here a few times during our stay. Food is delicious, service friendly and prices are reasonable. Not fancy-a local place, but very good food. BYOB keeps price down.
