We have been coming to Coco for 10 years but decided to try La Teresita for breakfast because of the reviews. Friendly owner greeted us and we had a table overlooking the beach. Typical or American choices. Fast delivery. Very average food (we all had typico) and no refills offered on our coffees. Not sure if we will try a... More

I eat there all the time when I go to Playas Del Coco. The owner is very friendly. The food quality is good for the price. Great value.

Popular Soda located on main drag and very close to the beach. We dined here after reading the reviews on trip adviser and suggestions from locals. Small family owned local business that serves typical "tico" food. We each had a Casado meal - rice, beans, vegetables, a meat, a small salad and plantains. Definitely a filling meal. Add a few...

My husband had the sea food soup which was large enough for 2-3 people! It was huge!! I had a plate of grilled parrot fish which came with fries, steamed vegetables and a salad of cabbage and fresh cucumbers. No alcohol here except for beer so I opted for tamarindo juice. I thought I'd be hungry but once I finished... More

Don't let the small and simple look of the family owned soda deter you. Cosada de pescado was muy bien. Fish plate. Fried fresh snapper, i asked for dos pescado and it was perfect for a big guy. Carmelized plantain, rice and beans, a lightly pickled simple salad, and some spicy pickles vegetables at the table. Hot sauce was great.... More

Our waitress was not the friendly and did not put much effort into taking our order. I ordered a casado with fish filet because... More

Small place in front of the sea, with very good local food. We tried the pargo frito entero (whole red snapper) and it was very fresh. My friend tried arroz con mariscos (seafood rice) and he liked it very much. Laid back and casual, it is good value for money

I stopped in for lunch while visiting Coco Beach. I wanted some authentic Costa Rican food. It was absolutely delicious. The service was good and fast, the food was hot and yummy. I want to go back to try another dish.

Great place to come for food in Playa del Coco. Good views of the water and nice Costa Rican food. They have a few western dishes if you fancy it but we stuck to the casado and ceviche.
