Refused to seat us till friends arrived. Ordered pork belly but got pork loin under cooked. Waiter put intense pressure on us to order. Expensive!

Pork over cooked and NO CRACKLING - just chewy skin. Waiter pretty much unapologetic. Our friends, who had not been before, commented on the rush to turn the tables over as well. May just be am off night, as the food is still homestyle and...More

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) ....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.

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...More

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...More

Similar experience.... I was shocked by the aggression dealt up when faced with a complaint. THe cynicism is appalling. I am not even going to bother letting the owners know. I am sure they already do. It must be the modus operandi ....from the top down... a cynical disregard for the ever patient , polite , mostly white middle class (on the night I went) customer. Shame... the food was mostly quite nice Overpriced and minimal selection.
