The reviews say it all. King Coconut is enjoyed and disliked by its customers As all have said the location is fine - with a prime site overlooking the beach - and I guess quite romantic at night with the twinkly lights and the splashing of waves But I was hungry and was there for the food.

When asking for a gin, I was told we are famous for our food not our drink so we all settled for beers instead. The food was just ok but the location was right on the beach and had a good atmopshere

We live locally and so are regular customers at the King Coconut. We felt compelled to write a review for that very reason: a good experience deserves positive recognition. The King Coconut is situated in a pleasant beachfront location; especially ideal for a long-and-lazy, good-value "lunch with a view". We've spent many an enjoyable leisurely lunch and dinner at this... More

We came during the busy evening hours and sat on the beach. Our waiter did't greet us and was very short, impatient and unfriendly. We had the 'Mixed Grill Platter' which turned out to be a pile of boiled meet, even the bacon was boiled. The 'Chili Seafood Platter' contained small seafood pieces drowned in a Ketchup based sauce. We... More
