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!!

Koco is a very nice, quiet and enjoyable place. The food was exquisite and the service was excellent. Mauricio was an excellent waiter who went above and beyond. It is pricey But worth every dollar!
