We spent 5 nights in Puerto Viejo and we save out last night for KOKI, realizing it was more expensive then the "local joints" which the town is covered with. Koki has great look, vibe and friendly service but the food was, well, just plain lousy. The mixed seafood grill had been drenched with what tasted like Heinz BBQ sauce,... More

We went looking for another spot and found Kiko's. It has a nice open setting and great atmosphere. My wife had a tuna steak and I had seabass. Both were cooked as ordered and tasted great. They also have a nice seating for chairs to just people watch as walkers and vehicles pass by.

Koki beach is a very visually attractive set-up, kinda the most 'northern' restaurant in PV. Wonderful place to chill and people watch, excellent decor with couches and coffee tables scattered about the patio in the trees. Has the best modern ambiance around. The service was good, excellent english skills. The meals were average, good burgers and skewers, but my fish... More

Just walking through the entrance and up the steps to Kiko Beach for the first time, I knew I was about to have a outstanding experience. Very nice ambience at night and great atmosphere- upscale, yet laid back like signature Puerto Viejo. Unfortunately, I didn't eat here as a friend and I were coming from dinner just to have a...

This place was really warming and prestigious. Every meals we took were incredible and tasty. Service was a bit slow even if the place was not completely full. Our waitress forgot to order our main plates, that really didn't help. She gave us free shots to compensate the waiting. Be aware this place is really not cheap but still worth... More

This is a beautiful restaurant. We loved the decor. Food and cocktails were amazing and the waitress very friendly. The only very small criticism I would have, if any at all, is that the service was quite slow. It was a busy evening but we still shouldn't have to wait for our drinks for 20 minutes.

I had the most wonderful dinner experience at this restaurant. I enjoyed the nice upscale caribbean decorated atmosphere, music and food, not to mention its presentation. Great place for drinks sitting at the open lounge at the front of the restaurant overlooking the street from where to enjoy watching Puerto Viejo's night life.

Koki Beach is one of the staples of the fine dining scene in Puerto Viejo. The charming tiny coastal town offers many alternatives ranging from the most basic food stall to the 5 star hotel lounge, yet Koki stays comfortable on the higher range without being prohibitive and you have no ridiculous service rules (as the title of this review...

Started with mojitos which were fun, with a stick of sugar cane to chew on. The spicy prawns were spicy and delicious, and the Peruvian chaufa, rice with mixed seafood and some small pieces of beef, was generous and worth trying. We meant to share dessert - banana with caramel and white chocolate - but the kitchen assumed we wanted... More
