The food was nice (save that £6 for 5 prawns as a tapas dish seemed expensive). Disappointed with service. Asked for advice for a Spanish red which was full bodied and was told either merlot, Shiraz or Rjoja and that they were all nice. It showed a lack of knowledge which wasn't helpful. We chose a wine, waited 10-15 mins... More

My parents and I visited here on Friday 22nd January and we dined from the early bird menu. We shared a bottle of rose wine, which to my taste was very sharp and not easy drinking, but as I was driving this did not bother me. Between the 3 of us, we shared a couple of plates of the 'tapas... More

We visited Cocina on New Year's Eve for a meal. All started very well, ordered a bottle of Prosecco our starters and mains. All were delicious, quality food and tasty, but too be honest were fairly small portions. Upon finishing our main course (and Prosecco) we were given dessert menus. I didn't order anything but my wife did. Unfortunately we... More

Having visited La Cocina at the Casa Hotel previously, it seemed a good option to start our Christmas with Dinner on Christmas Eve. Booking online was simple with confirmation arriving the same day.

The area to eat in was cramped with very poor lighting, so reading the menu was difficult, also the mix of languages made it hard to understand as well. ~We did not feel that there was a good choice of dishes available and struggled to find things that everyone on the table to order.

Eating out for me is often fraught with problems. I have a small appetite and so often restaurant meals are huge. If I ask for a small portion I am often told that the restaurant does not do small portions, "eat what you can and leave the rest". I find it immoral to waste food anywhere and it matters not...
