Great variety and presentation of food!! The thai curry was fantastic and so were the salads. The service is excellent too. Our western breakfast was near perfect!

“Great food in heaven!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

We had diner in Coco bay restaurant a week ago. My dish was very well presented, the fish was so perfectly cooked, it melted in the mouth. It was accompanied by tasty vegetables and a super salsa that i will definitely try to reproduce when i am back home. My husband had the curry set which came in 9 different dishes! All this was served in the most perfect setting (feet in the sand! ;-)).In conclusion, the place is lovely, the food is good, at very reasonable prices, and the service was efficient. I would therefore warmly recommend this place to anyone who would like to experience a classy but affordable restaurant in this area.

“Beautiful setting, amazing service and lots of extra effort!”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

I have always enjoyed the food at Coco Bay, and have been there for pizza and great steaks in the past. it is one of those few places on the south coast that has the whole package, the great setting, amazingly professional service staff and great food. However it was in organizing a special dinner for a pre wedding event for 60 that the guys at Coco Bay showed what they can do. Not only did they (without prompting and without additional cost) arrange a marque for the BBQ setting area - because it just might rain, they also set up white seat covers and beautiful table settings. Also unexpected! There were live food stations and a large buffet selection of food all laid out invitingly. We did not book-out the venue, and hence it was very affordable but it felt like we had because we had our own private area on the beach - complete with lanterns and a beautiful sunset.They even arranged a saxophonist for a small additional cost. For a pre wedding event or special dinner for a large group I can really recommend Coco Bay - great professional service and lots of care and attention to make it very special.
