The food at Bocado is appalling, there is nothing Mediterranean about what is served up. We ordered 2 cocktails and both were absolutely tasteless and watered down- when we asked if they had even included alcohol we were assured yes but then brought a tot of some type of alcohol that definitely wasn't rum. Every dish appears doused in a... More

The food on our starting plate was barely edible. Absolutely no taste and bland. Why would SUN city allow such a poor establishment to muddy their high reputation is beyond me? I am only sorry I did not think to look at the reviews beforehand as I stupidly expected the highest standards that I had experienced elsewhere.

We had dinner here on two nights whilst visiting Sun City recently. First night was amazing. Food was good, service was good, can't really say anything bad about the place. Second night was a disaster. They initially didn't have our booking (which was made at the same time of the first booking) Service was slow, food was average, some of... More

We were excited to try this new restaurant, their menu looked nice and the decor trendy and appealing. The outside seating next to the Cascades pool is very nice, although we had to move inside due to rain. The food however was a huge letdown and definitely overpriced for the quality. Inedible spanakopitas - soggy phyllo over a tasteless pile... More

I asked for calamari to be grilled in a little oil - it came burnt and tasteless. The rest of the party seemed satisfied with their meals. I called the manager and complained - so he made a deduction on the bill. This restaurant replaces Santorini - there is a beautiful outdoor area with a waterfall outside the window. Lovely... More

Good menu selection. We all had a good meal. Portions not very big, and a little on the pricey side.

Bocado is situated at the Cascades hotel poolside, its great for cocktails and pizza while soaking up the sun. Their lunch menu is quite limited and the food is less than average. We were very disappointed by the service inside the actual restaurant so I would suggest that one orders from the waiters by the pool.

Had lunch here on the Friday when we arrived. Only one other family eating here. Drinks took ages to arrive. Ordered toasted sandwiches and chips - not great - hardly toasted and chips hardly cooked. Not impressed at all. The next day we lay at the pool and ordered from the waitress - drinks arrived quickly - ordered toasted sandwiches... More
