Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula Restaurants

Fodor's Review

The coolest dining in Coco is this breezy, pleasant patio restaurant just steps from the beach, specializing in Peruvian seafood dishes. The same family has had a beachfront restaurant here since 1954, but the old place was demolished to make room for the beach boardwalk in 2011. This new incarnation offers seating on a wooden deck, where you can watch fishing boats bobbing in the bay. The updated menu wows with Peruvian chaufa, rice and shrimp spiced with Japanese flavors, and a Peruvian-style chunky ceviche. Desserts include flans, flambéed Bananas Foster, and key-lime pie. The wine list is notable for a wide range of Spanish and Italian wines, some available by the glass.
