We called for lunch and were quite surprised to find the restaurant virtually empty. There was therefore no atmosphere but the views over the bay were just as lovely as ever. The food (steak and seafood) was nice and tasty, and the service (not surprisingly I guess!) was very good.

We arrived here as walk-ins, not having booked and discovered the place was full. We were told a table would soon be available and to take a seat at the bar while we waited. After 45 minutes of waiting we asked if we could sit at one of the empty tables- we had been completely forgotten! No apology, no acknowledgement.... More

When we paid the bill they charged us R2O9 for... More

Hi Dana, glad you came back to Cocos, please feel free to ask the price of SQ items. these are listed as such due to the seasonal nature of South Africa's dwindling fish supplies and the subsequent fluctuations from our suppliers. as to the price please note the following 1. Cocos uses only fresh bought fish from accredited suppliers that... More

You know the story... it's whale season and even the locals get excited. We become tourists in our own cities, which is fantastic for local businesses. We only went to Cocos because the owner of the rock shop (daughter loves rocks ) next door recommend it. We got a table at a window overlooking the bay and (fantastic idea) binoculars... More

Went there for a late breakfast. Omlettes very tasty. Restaurant well situated for whale watching. It was very busy because an international rugby game was on, but despite this service was great.
