We came across this place and decided to give it a try. We were so happy that we did. The food was delicious and the margarita were strong and amazing. Good size portions and friendly service. My favorite dish there was the ceviche stuffed avocado.

Pretty good chicken fajitas. One was enough for two people. Home-style sour cream. Shady location. Better than in a hotel restaurant.

We've been to Samara 4 times now and always go back to Coco's. The food is consistently delicious and the staff are extremely friendly and professional.

Great, reasonably priced Mexican food. We come to Samara twice a year and always eat here at least once or twice during our stay. Our favorites are the fajitas, tacos and nachos. The serving of nachos is huge, and we always end up taking half...More

We were aiming for the taco place, but when we found out it was closed, we ended up here. Great choice! Very good sangria and other mixed drinks, and the food was plentiful and very tasty. No complaints here, if in Samara, would return here...More

Had tacos here last night which were great! Prices are similar to a standard American meal out, so expensive for Costa Rica, but worth it.

After driving from Atenas this place offered a cold beer and great ambience. We came back for their burgers which were great!

I was there at the end of March. I asked for a Margarita without sugar. I'm not sure what the bartender used but I would give anything to know how you made my drink. We ate there three times and each time my waitress remembered to say without sugar. Not sure if it was but I tolerated it very well. Is there any way you could share your recipe. I'm in Colorado and may not get back for awhile. Loved your Steak Taco Salad.

Here's the way a Margarita is made. 2 oz Tequila, preferably something good like 100% Agave, or Reposado. There is a huge difference between Tequila quality. 1 oz. Cointreau, orange liquer 1 freshly squeezed lime. There... More
