El Coconut Review

The red, black, and dark-wood interior of this high-gloss, dinner-only restaurant with giant pre-Columbian stone sculptures and a coconut tree growing through the roof feels like a lacquered Japanese bento box. Seafood is the main event, with the catch of the day—usually mahimahi—served half a dozen ways, but they also serve tenderloin, with a choice of sauces, and the classic surf and turf. The innovative jumbo shrimp or lobster in a pineapple, raisin, and ginger sauce is delicious, and the list of sauces for the fish includes the traditional Norwegian sandefjords smor (a creamy butter sauce with lime)—the owner, Katharina, is from Norway. Service is smooth and more formal than at most beach restaurants, and they have a good wine list. Watch for the occasional $25 lobster special. There's live music some Friday nights in high season.
