It took ages for the waitress to take our order and we got there at 5pm. The manager/owner however, when asked, was quick and helped us out with ordering tapas. The mains, when they came were nice (except the beef which was very fatty) . The waitress, was pretty sullen all night and didn't seem to know how to respond... More

The ambiance is flawless, offering a fun, zesty energy with vibrant, engaging staff. The setting is idyllic - like stepping into an authentic Italian trattoria. And the food? Sublime. You can feel on every level that Coco's is run purely on love - a love for food, a love for hospitality, a love for Italy and a love for life.... More

A local recommended this for an early dinner and we were not disappointed! A buzzy friendly scene; great waiting staff who helped with selection. The limited wine list looked perfectly adequate; sadly driving requirements prevented trying the items on offer! Food was excellent, perfectly cooked and in reasonable time. Would not hesitate to return!

An enjoyable night out with friends. Good, honesty food, great atmosphere and yummy cocktails. We had a selection of entrees, mains and sides - all were good, but no real standouts.

At Cocos the hearty Italian inspired cuisine is made from scratch, the service is just the right mix of charm and sass and the atmosphere is always buzzy. The prices are fair, their ingredients are fresh and sustainably sourced. Coco's are not afraid to share their recipes and their local knowledge. This place is a truly local experience that makes...

Our hotel sent us up the hill to this area. We stumbled across the restaurant and thought we'll try it because we were starving and not because of choice. What a find. Great atmosphere, great food and one place we will return to in the future.

we arrived at this restaurant happy and were told to wait on the street as the bar was full, fine. After 10 minutes we entered and then decided to order some cocktails at the bar as our table was not yet ready. After ordering we were then told by the bartender that we would have to wait 15 minutes before... More
