As mentioned last time, the new El Coconut restaurant is now open in Surfside, across the street from the Bahía del Sol. Owner Katharina, originally from Norway, has lived in Costa Rica for nine years. She and husband Stephane, from France, have created a unique and comfortable ambience on the beach, offering home-cooked meals, mainly finger food and seafood. The restaurant will be open six days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. starting in December, and plans to offer special events like singles nights and an “open-minded day.” Guests can also enjoy the pool and lounge chairs on the beach.
