Coco Rocco

My wife and I went to the Park Slope branch for the first time last night. I had the roasted half chicken and the rice and beans both of which were very good. She had the red snapper which was a little bland, as was the rice that accompanied her dish. The maduros were quite good although some of them were a little less sweet than I personally like them. We also had a chicken appetizer which was very tasty indeed and came with a very nice lime, red onion and tomato salsa.

I have seen complaints about the slow service on this and other boards. The service was a little on the slow side but not terrible and the waiter was nice enough. The ambience wasn't bad for a casual night out. Overall, I think Coco Rocco is a good option for a quick dinner for take out or at the restaurant but I would stick to the basics like the roast chicken which together with a couple of sides is a great deal and very tasty.

    Coco Roco in Park Slope closed several years ago. Are you sure you have the right restaurant?

      Nope, it's still open. They closed for renovations once...

        Yup, I can vouch for that. Been ordering in from Coco Roco pretty consistently over the last two years. Its there and the chicken is tasty.

          even though the reviews have always been mixed for this place, I still recreate their pulpo in a black olive sauce at home!! NOt sure if it's still on the menu, but it was fab-u-lous.
