Nice food, although a bit overpriced

I always enjoy the food at Coco Pazzo. It is in our home town and we have eaten here regularly. The interior is nice, has a small terrace to sit outside in summer. Nice Italian food which is well prepared. Good wine collection. However at the end of the evening when I get the check I always feel... read more

The focus in this restaurant is very much so on the food and the quality of the product. Enjoyed a 3-course meal, and the starter and main course was not entirely to my taste. But nothing to complaint about on quality and presentation. Dessert was top class and rates as one of the best I've had. Only thing preventing top... More

Very nice food. I think, over all, the quality of the food on the restaurant is excellent. Also the personnel is very kind.

We always look out for Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurants on our travels, cross-checking with tripadvisor reviews:- the combination of interesting, innovative, delicious food and usually excellent value is a real hit for us. This is a small but smart restaurant in a pleasant square in Houten. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. We took the offered plate... More

A friend from 't Goy, not far from 'central' Houten took me to Coco Pazzo for lunch. Marvellous, indeed, just as he'd said. Pleasantly spacious but uncluttered with colorful prints on the walls. A well-utensiled open kitchen; tables impeccably set with white linnens, gleaming cutlery, fine china. Exceptionally friendly reception. There wasn't a menu-list; a tray is brought on which... More

I went to Coco Pazzo with 3 collegues and I wasn't disappointed. The waitress was very helpfull and presented our food at the table before it was prepared. They have a beautiful wine card and they import wines themselves so you'll find some interesting wines on it. It was a pitty we were a week before the 'restaurant week' in... More

We went here on a Monday evening on a business trip, one of the few restaurants that open on this day. They offer a set menu on this evening, which offered a choice of halibut or lamb as main course. The fish was nice and soft. The owner even brought us back to the hotel after dinner.

We were pleased with the food we had at Coco Pazzo a few days ago. The wine was good but not excellent. The restaurant was busy so we had to wait quite long between the courses and as a result we left the restaurant later than we wanted to. The ambience is average and the tables are a bit close...
