A couple of us decided to go out for supper and ended up at Coobs. From first glance it is very deceiving as it's not particularly big but it's nice and bright and very inviting. We sat outside and were given menus ... to which my first question was "What is week 7?" ... apparently I am not the only... More

I have been there for both lunch and dinner. On this occasion met a business partner for a quick bite to eat. Coins served up a delicious salad. The vibe along this little street is lovely. Most eateries have tables on the pavement which allows you to take in the scenery.

Lurv the online booking system - so efficient; and the fact that 80% of the food is grown on the owner's farm in the Magaliesberg and that the rest is responsibly sourced; and that the owner is the chef and was around to tell us these facts; and that my line fish was outstanding! And Sam's taglialini with prawns and... More

Relaxed & trendy setting Diverse menu with many options Food: my octopus starter was good without being great; the lamb main was a step up - a very tasty dish! Deserts also one good and another great - the latter being the chocolate log! Double volume space inside can get noisy when full. We will be back to try more... More

Having never been to Coobs I was looking forward to trying a new restaurant, it was fun and I was impressed. After a mix up with the number of seats at our table, (how do they hear 3 for 4?) we had a very nice meal. I like that the ingredients are sourced from their own farms, and the food... More

My wife had a booked a table for 2 and later in the day changed the booking for 4 people. When we got to the restaurant, they could not find the booking and showed us a table for 3 tucked away near a pillar, so that you could not see the person next to you. Luckily for us, a table... More

Wonderful restaurant in a vibey neighbourhood. The food was excellent. And the staff was attentive and welcoming. A highlight of our trip.

Have been a big fan of Coobs from the beginning. James is a gifted chef and not afraid to experiment. Love the fact that the menu is seasonal and ethically sourced. Could refresh the wine list more frequently. Great spot for a meal with friends or a business lunch.

Cannot rave enough about Coobs! It was my first time and went as part of a work group for our year end function. The atmosphere, decor, ambience and food is absolutely amazing. Service is on point and attention to detail spectacular. The waiting staff are efficient and happy to make recommendations. I would return time and time again for a... More

This restaurant serves very fresh dishes. We had a beautiful salad and a vegetarian pasta for lunch. Superb! The ingredients were interesting, and not what you get at every other restaurant in town. Special.
