This June I was visiting good friends near Oxford again. Each year when I'm with these friends, we make a point to have a delicious dinner at Cockadoo Bar and Restaurant. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the service is first class - attentive without being intrusive. The food is imaginatively Asian Fusion, and each dish is cretively seasoned and... More

Passed Cockadoo Chinese Restaurant for years. It had been recommended to me by locals but I've never had the chance to dine there. We went there, many years ago, when it was an 'American Diner' and had not been impressed. Tonight we dropped in. We were greeted by enthusiastic staff eager to please. The main restaurant had been fully booked... More

Just back from our second visit to this restaurant and it was even better than our first visit. The food was superb, service was very good. There were two large parties (14 and 8) the evening we visited but we were served promptly and no long delays between courses, which can happen when there are large groups to be catered... More

Lovely ambience, nice decor and a lovely cocktail bar. Food is fine dining, not like your takeaway by any means.

Since I was disappointed for the first time, I thought that I should give a second chance to this restaurant because the tableware was wonderful, and the food was so delicious that’s why I tried it again. For the first time the waitress’ finger was in my food. I didn’t warned her because I thought she would realize her mistake,... More

From the outside it doesn't look much but from the inside it is quite different. The food is not to be missed. From starters to deserts you will not be let down. An infusion of flavours which work well together. I will be back for more.
