Truly a hip and trendy new addition to the Garden Route. With good service, excellent live entertainment and a delightful atmosphere, Cocomos has it all. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I popped in at Cocomo for a light dinner. From the outside it looks very inviting with a great vibe, as they have live music every night. We were not very hungry , so we opted for their butternut soup. We sat near the fire place which was very cozy. Our butternut soup arrived and... WOW!! It was deliciously thick and really creamy with a hint of garlic and parsley.
It was served with toasted slices of french loaf.
Our waiter was friendly and chatty .
The only thing that I did not like much is that the non-smoking area where we sat was smaller than the smoking area, where the live music was. Also the doors to the smoking area were open.

They have an extensive menu andnext time I will definitely try their oysters!

As a local I don't often post reviews on places in my area. After 2 visits for lunch I have to say the food is great as well as a good vibe! Highly recommended!

We spent 4 of our 8 nights at Cocomo and were never disappointed. The food was excellent (especially the Kudu) and each time it had a great vibe whether there was live music or not. There is a choice of eating indoors or out, both very atmospheric. Unique place settings (old LPs which we had fun reminiscing over)
