Coco Bistro Review

With tables under palm trees, Coco Bistro has a divine setting, and the food is just as good. Though not directly on the beach, the location under the tropical tree grove still reminds you that you are on vacation. Main courses are complemented by both French flourishes (served au poivre, for example) and West Indian (such as with mango chutney) and are accompanied by fried plantains and mango slaw to maintain a Caribbean flair. Consider conch soup, soft-shell-crab tempura, and sun-dried tomato pasta from the internationally influenced menu. Do not miss this restaurant, it is the best of the best on the island. Make reservations at least 1 week ahead during non peak season, 2 to 3 weeks ahead in peak season, as this is the most popular restaurant on island.

    Coco Bistro Review

    We were very excited to dine at Coco Bistro during our visit to Turks & Caicos last week. Unfortunately, the evening turned out to be the worst experience of our trip...my husband's stomach is still recovering.
    As we arrived for dinner, the natural beauty of the restaurant was impressive. We ordered two appetizers for our daughters, two entrees for ourselves, and water ($125.00) Three of our four choices were good, not great. My husband's conch ravioli, however, was neither. By the time we returned to our room he was feeling nauseous. The poor guy spent the remainder of the evening/early morning in the bathroom. It was only after throwing up the next morning that he began to recuperate. We contacted the manager/owner of Coco Bistro and explained what had happened; his response was sadly apathetic and indifferent. He stated that he was unaware of any other problems that evening and left it at that. No apology, no attempt to rectify the situation.
    The remainder of the week my husband's stomach was not right; he was unable to eat much of anything. What an UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT Coco Bistro turned out to be!
