The son we're visiting who lives in the area suggested El Coqui and we're glad he did. This was a bustling place on a Saturday night, but that was fine -- fun people watching and definitely worth the bit of a wait we had. The...More

I have been here a number of times and always have a good meal. There chicken special I always like with the choice of sweet or savory plantains. I would like to try other dishes.

Santa Rosa's only Puerto Rican restaurant does the island proud. Fresh food on limited menu. Would be great to have a seafood dish available.

Every plate is so delicious! I love the Bacalaito and the aoli that comes with it. The service is excellent and they even catered my wedding which was a huge hit!

They do many excellent things here at El Coqui. But, the Cubano Sandwich. It is an epic sandwich (with Sweet Plaintains on the side). I know... Seven simple ingredients but sublime when executed perfectly. Don't miss this one. I have been harping about this for...More
