Koco Modern Caribbean Reviews List

Koco Modern Caribbean

Koco, located in the fabulous El San Juan Hotel & Casino in Isla Verde, is the newest, hottest OOF! Restaurant, and the design showpiece of the company. Koco features Chef Hector Crespo’s interpretation of Modern Caribbean dishes, using fresh island ingredients, artistic presentations, and traditional techniques to create a new vibrant, soulful cuisine.
Koco features an extensive Rum Bar and the chicest lounge in town, serving a hip modern take on some classic Caribbean cocktails, and the largest selection of rums on the island.
Koco was designed to transport you to a sexy, tropical chic, outdoor pavilion. Follow the water shimmering on the walls to candlelit dining spaces on the waterside decks, the glowing imperial table under the draped island pergola, or in one of the intimate round booths, and imagine you are dining under the Caribbean night sky.

"The decor of this restaurant is nice, and the food is ok, but I did not really enjoy the experience (except the company I was with). No bread was offered, even when we asked for some and the menu is fairly limited."

"El San Juan hotel is famous for its lobby, which starts the wonderful experience at Koco. Good for couples but big enough for groups and private functions. A party of four we tried guava empanadas for appetizers. We had coconut risotto, churrasco, and snapper fillet. For dessert we had coconut mousse and Koco Choco. The food was great. The white sangria was outstanding. And Mauricio Ovalle's service was the best. We've sent him business associates who have loved their experience as well."

"We were the first to arrive at the restaurant after opening and it was a glorious experience. The ambiance was great and we had excellent food. Our waiter was delightful and while we could've spoke in Spanish, he wanted to practice his English and he was so attentive."

"Tucked away in a corner of El San Juan Casino and Resort, this restaurant was a great find! The atmosphere and decor was trendy and comfortable. The wait staff was amazing and very helpful. The food sounded amazing, looked fantastic and was incredibly delicious . Dumplings for appy, pork and beef for dinner , and donuts for dessert....all remarkable!!"

"From the hostess who greated us with a huge smile through the Chocokoco dessert my wife devoured we could not have been more pleased. Surf and turf combined a perfectly cooked and tender filet with their signature coconut shrimp. My wife substituted coconut risotto for an even bigger coconut punch and loved it. My paella, though missing the crunchy edges I love, was excellent as well. The saffron rice was infused with the sausage flavor and the pieces of chicken melted in my mouth. Wife agreed. The seafood was perfectly cooked. Mussles and clams were tender (no chewy, gritty versions you sometimes get). Shrimp pulled out of their tails easily (my personal benchmark for evaluating freshness and kitchen talent). Highly recommended. Our Gustazo made it an even better value but we plan to return without one. Enough said?"

"I had the grilled chickens and Caribbean rice dish as thus was our first night at the hotel and didn't want to go off property, Friday night is the best night at ELsanJuan. The rice had red rice, diced red potatoes, chirozo, sautéed onions, slightly spicy from the chorizo every fork full of garlic arom! The server deck scribes it "stairway to heaven". My husband actually ordered fish! He never orders fish and never offered me a bite that's how good it was, chorizo encrusted Mahi Mahi served with yuca fries( these I thought had too much butter) but he thought was so good he was still talking about the dish the next day. Two round of drinks N with tips an even $100 what a steal! Definitely give this a try"

"Kind of what you expect from a resort restaurant. It wasn't anything to write home about, but I had pretty low expectations going in and they were exceeded. Service was good until the server stacked all the plates up on the table in front of us."

"The chorizo crusted mahi mahi will blow your mind! We had a mixed experience with service - loved our bartender but our waiter left something to be desired. The restaurant is stunningly beautiful but kept very cold."

"We made a reservation for valentine's Day for ourselves and two other couples. We were greeted nicely by the hostess and shown to our table. The decor of the restaurant is attractive, and the ambiance moderate despite been steps away from the busy lobby of the hotel. The food was good, nut nothing spectacular. We would recommend the appetizer "pastelillos" and the shrimp. They have an interesting variety of cocktail drinks which were good. The service however was slow, and the waiter not friendly at all. He was not knowledgeable about the menu. The unintended consequence is that because the service was slow we had plenty of time for good conversation and fun. Unfortunately, that was not the intended consequence. Overall, if the restaurant improves its service it could become a great restaurant. It seem however they are conetn with being a tourist trap."

"I wanted a cozy spot for my husband and I to enjoy late night apps and drinks on our last night in San Juan. The space was beautiful. Loved the bar, our booth and that beautiful long table under the pergola. However, it was quiet when we arrived, which was near closing. Our server was fantastic! The drinks were yummy and the environment complimented my husband's handsomeness! :-) However, the apps were just marginal... typical overpriced hotel fare. I'd come for drinks and vibe with a group, and possibly again for a romantic night out, but I'd eat first."
