We were recommended this place and found it very nice! The food for me was not all typically Italian or classic Italian but tasted very good. We shared the cured fish for starter which we found on their very arty menu cards :) That was very nicely presented and tasted very good. As mains we had chicken parmigiana and the... More

I had read plenty of reviews of Cocos - but had never been before so decided to drop in on a Friday night with my lovely lady While quirky - this meal was undoubtedly one of the best I have ever had, packed full of flavour with super fresh obviously homemade ingredients. Service was outstanding as well, you are made... More

The staff at this restaurant are very rude, making you not want to return. The food is terrible over-priced for that you get. I wouldn't recommend it.

With just a 5 minute wait we got a good table inside along the banquette and were asked about Happy Hour drinks which we took up. The cured fish is sensational. The pasta dishes we had of ravioli with walnut sauce and Orriechetti with broccoli... More

Cocos is my all time favourite place to catch up, chat and laugh with friends. It's homely, kinda chaotic and makes orgasmic polenta chips. The staff are kind, amazing and sometimes a bit grumpy too! The food is always excellent. My go to when I have a few hours to spend with the people I love.
