My partner and I decided to stay in wilderness for two nights and had lunch at Cocomo, they are famous for their life music and pizza, and it did not disappoint! You can see the owners personal taste in art and the combination of a rustic African feel. It is definitely is a must stop when in Wilderness. We had a bit of a hiccup in service, we were greeted at the door and got our table, but waited 15min for someone to take our drink order. No one other than your waiter is allowed to help (or so it seems) It looked to us as though there are runners that bring your food and then you have the waiters who you place your order with. So if your waiter is busy I hope you are patient. But the food did make up for the wait, and the life music did create a happy mood.

The power went out in our area prompting us to journey down into town for dinner. We stumbled by this place, ended up at lovely little table outside, with some live music being Played inside. Service was decent, we ordered focaccia and burgers. The focaccia was delicious, the burger was average and a tad undercooked. But overall an enjoyable evening.

Absolutely pathetic service ! You need to go call someone to try order food. The manager seems to walk around in a "dwaal" unaware of anybody trying to oorder. Warm beer. Disgusting experience

If you'd like to be treated according to your ethnic origins, give this place a try.
From the second we walked in we felt discriminated against. We were told to take a seat outside as there were no tables inside. We requested that as soon as a table became available, for it to please be allocated to us. We pointed out to the waitress that a table had indeed opened up and she assured us that we would get it.
A group of people walked in a minute later and sure as hell got seated at the table right in front of our eyes! When we enquired what the hell was going on, the waitress said the manager gave our table away. Just like that, we had to accept it I guess!!
We previously gave this place some decent business as we have a holiday house nearby. But this is exactly how you lose out on a few customers for the rest of your life.
