Expensive food with no taste. I ordered a «fresh juice» that tasted like water. I also had a thai seafood soup that was way too strong. The fish was dry and smelly.

Very, very bad food, for all the dishes we tried (soups, salads, curry). They did not have real coffee, only instant. They were out of fresh juices, beer was warm. Definitely to be avoided.

After reading some bad reviews of Mocco, I still decided to give it a try myself, also because I was sick of only eating at Kendwa rock. I had a pineapple juice and a grilled dorado at Mocco. It definitely lives to its reputation, by...More
