Early bird menu well worth dining early for

Excellent 3 course early bird menu for a little over £20 - which equates to the normal price of a single main course. Very good, innovative menu with a mix of Spanish, vegetarian and local produce. Large fresh, hot coffee. Unusual wine list. All competitively priced and well chosen. And the seating... read more

We booked this restaurant for my Sons Birthday prior to him going into hospital for 7 people. When booking asked to pay £10PP deposit. so Fine. Main courses for 4 of our party were very very poor and I mean bad. Unpleasant and unable to eat. On complaining they took 2 of the main courses off the bill. Then we... More

I have not stayed here and have had two meals which did not overly impress me. However on Thursday I went to a meeting where we were provided with a buffet lunch and credit where credit is due it was a really nice spread, nothing fancy but thoroughly enjoyable. Cannot comment on price as I did not pay.

Just got home from evening dinner at Cochina restaurant at this hotel. Feel like we have just been mugged for £80. Rushed through in barely just over an hour as clearly needed table despite booking. Charged £2.30 alone for lemonade to go with martini that was £4.50 itself. Lamb starter was chewy mutton and risotto main course starter size.All the... More

My partner and I went to Cocinas for a birthday meal and we were both blown away by the whole experience. The restaurant itself is beautifully designed, the ambience makes you feel like you're on holiday. The service from the staff was absolutely first class, each waitress was polite, attentive, offered recommendations and delivered our food with great professionalism. But... More

Rather strange to review bar meals - the restaurant was closed on the Monday evening when we were there. We had excellent tapas, penne with meat balls and a very nice pizza. I suspect that the restaurant is even better - definitely on our list for the next time we are in the area!

I had visited the restaurant before but this was the first time I had tried the 'Early Bird' menu which was £21-50 for three courses. As usual, the standard of food and service was very good.

We used to go to a pub in Dronfield where the food was fantastic. Then the chef, Mark, left. Dronfield was devastated. I learnt two years later that he was the head chef at the Cocina restaurant in La Casa Hotel, Chesterfield. We have been to the Cocina several times and have never been disappointed.
