Great place to have breakfast/lunch/dinner. They offer you either a la carte menu or buffet. I chose buffet and was delicious. You can get 4 carbs, 1 protein, 1 salad and 1 natural juice. It costs around $9 or 4500 cólones. It does worth if...you are in a tight budget or you want to try local food.More

OK food, including a buffet but friendly staff and ala carte options as well. Price was reasonable for Playa Hermosa.

We dined here three times - once for dinner and twice for lunch. For the price I paid, I absolutely had no complaints at all!! A plate full of local fares; rice and beans, yuca or chips, one protein, and salad. I tried different protein...options (pork chops, fish, and roasted chicken) - all of them were tasty. A glass of sweet tea, fruit juice, or local beverage is included at USD 8 each. The owner gave us a bit of rice pudding to taste at one lunchtime - just enough to satisfy us, dessert lovers. The place is large enough to accommodate 2 groups of dozen people. It was never completely full while we were there.More

I just love this place; we eat here every year. Mostly breakfast (they make the best pinto), but often we'll go for lunch or dinner too. Down home cooking at it's finest, and super reasonable on the pocketbook

Great family owned restaurant with good food and good prices. Father and son working side by side and offering lots of smiles and kindness!

Not impressed with their food. It was alright. Taste is bland. Portions are small and not a good buffet selection. Customer service needs improvement.

We are at CoCo Viquez twice during our stay in playa Hermosa. The food was good both times, service excellent and price was reasonable. I especially liked their Pineapple smoothie.

A great authentic, welcoming, family run and super affordable restaurant! We visited more than once in our week long stay and it was definitely our favorite.

This restaurant is by far the most welcoming and friendly in the whole area! The owner and his family are incredible hosts and serve the most authentic Costa Rican meal you can possibly have, delicious as well, all at a great affordable price. Great after...a long day at Hermosa Beach, or if you're in the mood for a big and yummy breakfast. You should stop at Coco Viquez, you won't regret it!More

We went here two or three times during our stay. Joshua gave us specific directions to little known beaches and other helpful info. Great food and friendly staff!
