A word from 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.

  • "Service was superb, from the hostess, the server, the manager and the bartender. Had a band that played at perfec tempo and volume. A magician walking around approached the table only between courses and stayed for only the right amount of time. Servers suggestions were right on line."

  • "Really good food - on the list every time we visit Puerto Rico."

  • "We're regular visitors to the Island and to the El San Juan Hotel, knew of Koco but had adopted a manana attitude toward trying it out. I'm sorry we waited so long. Billed as "Porto" Rican with a kick, it lives up to it's billing. Our server was happy to not only make recommendations, but described each of the dishes he recommended and why he liked them. We had the scallops appetizer, the mero and the chicken. All were presented well, tasted great and were nice size portions. Not like the almost tapas size kind where the chef seems to think they're preparing a work of art rather than a main course and not so huge that you couldn't finish. We look forward to making this one of our regular stops in the future."

  • "Our overall experience at Koco was pleasant as my Husband and I dined with out 5 year old son. The food is flavorful but the portions are too small (especially for the prices). We are from NY and we are no strangers to paying good to get that in return but our portions were too small here. We shared the beef dumplings as an appetizer, had the jerk grilled chicken and the churrasco for entrees and the chocolate brownie dessert. Although they don't have a kids menu they were great about making our son panko breaded chicken fingers and fries which we though was nice. All around service, ambience and food was good."

  • "Mi exceperiencia en general no fue buena. El servicio era pobre y la comida no era de calidad. El rissoto estaba sobre cocinado y el filete de mero estaba medio quemado. Cuando le menciones esto al mesero me dijo que si queria algun otro plato del menu deberia de esperar de 40 a 45 minutos lo cual es algo inaceptable. Pienso que el lugar tiene buen potencial, es romantico y acojedor pero sus meseros, comida y presentacion no fueron nada buenas."

  • "Totally enjoyed our meal at Koco. Our waiter, Alberto, couldn't have been more helpful, making suggestions and describing every dish. The tuna tartare appetizer was spectacular. Our entrees arrived in a timely fashion and were delicious. My husband said the paella was the best he had ever had, and he has a deccriminating palate. I ordered the grouper entree that was served with a mofungo. I found it a little sweet. It was very good, the fish prepared perfectly. We did not order dessert but the meal was terrific."

  • "This was a last minute choice for dining in the Isla Verde neighborhood. It is in the Old San Juan hotel which is a great place for nightlife and music. We lived our experience the paella was "to die for"! Our server, Alberto was the best. Great Mojitos too."

  • "Kocos, located in El San Juan Hotel, is a gem. We had the Caribbean chicken and blackened tuna, both were excellent. The waiter (Rafael) was extremely helpful."

  • "The coconut shrimp was pretty good. The chicken dumplings were terrible. Tasted like opening a salt shaker and dumping it into you mouth. NASTY! Service was great! Alberto was very friendly. Just tried a couple apps as we were sampling a few of the spots in the old San juan hotel."

  • "We have eaten at Koco's every time we are in Puerto Rico which has been many times over the past 10 years. They have many new menu items, it changes often but still have some of the staples which I hope never change. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable about how the food is prepared and they make an awesome pomegranate cosmo if that is your preference. I highly recommend it to anyone who is in San Juan"
