Fodor's Review

Coconut palms grow through the roof of this open-air thatched restaurant, flickering candlelight illuminates colorful local murals, waves lap the white sand, and the waitstaff provides just the right level of service. Jean-François Bellanger's dishes artfully fuse French culinary preparations with island ingredients. Top choices include pan-seared mahimahi served over cauliflower puree with fingerling potatoes and mango-pineapple chutney; and sautéed shrimp with roasted plantain and hickory bacon finished with champagne-Parmesan sauce. The signature coconut shrimp is the best lunch option. The kitchen can be uneven, the wine list is unimaginative and overpriced, and the buzzing happy-hour bar crowd lingering well into dinnertime can detract from the otherwise romantic atmosphere. Nonetheless, Coconut Grove straddles the line between casual beachfront boîte and elegant eatery with aplomb.

Espresso Coffee

I was staying at a nearby hotel and had breakfast two days at the Coconut Grove, I was shocked that I had to pay $12.00 US (30.00 EC) for a double shot of espresso coffee! I have travel all over, both for business and pleasure and I don't recall paying that much money for a cup of coffee! The Chef is French, not even in Paris you pay that much money for a double shot of espresso coffee! That's insane!
