Went there for a business dinner and was pretty disappointed. The decor was about the best part of the restaurant. The food was pretty mediocre - flashy names but drab end-product.

We were 12 people booked for year end function. One page menu with 5 items not available. Waiter tried his utmost best to cope with a kitchen that could not cope! Food was not too bad. Problem with under cooked and over cooked meat. This was such a disappointment because previous experience with them two years ago was great!

From the outside this restaurant is stunning and the interior decor creates an impression of high quality and style (in keeping with it's not too subtle name reference to Madam Chanel). However that's about as far as the quality goes. Four of us visiting Bloemfontein on business popped in for dinner on a chilly winter's' Thursday night and didn't get... More

We visited this restaurant for a week day lunch. We were warmly welcomed and the elegant ambiance led us to have high hopes of amazing food. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The service was extremely slow. The food was over-priced and ill prepared. The olives in a cooked dish were not pitted; the hamburger patty was dry and tasteless... More

We had a business function with about 25 people. All arrangements where as agreed with the restaurant and very good food. We booked the whole outside area overlooking the waterfront - great atmosphere.

We wandered into Coco C, and we're warmly welcomed by the waiter who couldn't do enough for us. We ordered the beetroot salad as a starter, only to find out some time later it was not available. As so often happens, the menu flatters the food - the chicken escolops were not all that was promised, but the fillet steak... More

Visited Coco C numerous times and each time not very impressive. One visit does stand out, it was a weekday visit for lunch I ordered salmon and after waiting for an hour and being assured that our food is being plated I was informed that there is no salmon. Horrible service with poorly trained staff.

We ordered the duck and risotto dish and were served gammon and mash potato. Initially the kitchen insisted it was duck thereafter the manager apologised that we should have been advised of change on the menu. The bill includes compulsory 15% service (for a table of 3!) with no prior notice, notwithstanding good service.

After having read about Coco C in the Taste Magazine, we had high expectations, which werre unfortunately not met. Firstly, my first two choices were not available on the menu. I then ordered my third choice, the duck, which tasted like gammon. Our food arrived 1hr 15 min after we ordered, despite the restaurant being very empty. It was smoked,... More

What a pleasant and delightful surprise in the middle of Bloemfontein. Lovely ambience and decor, friendly staff and excellent cuisine. I could not fault them on anything we ordered. We are not wine drinkers, so I cannot comment on their selection. Chefs Craig and Dali have to be commended - sheer brilliance. Craig's quirk of having a taste of chocolate... More
