Before anything else, I would like to correct that this restaurant is not in Pleasanton. It's in Dublin. Ok, I got that out of the way. I've been to this restaurant a few times for dinner and it's pretty good. I like their tapas. Their portions are actually bigger than the usual tapas in my opinion. One of my favorite... More

I have driven by Coco Cabana many times and had no idea it was not a nightclub. My friend and I like to try new places and discovered it when looking on Trip Advisor. Not only is it a restaurant, it is open for lunch. Who knew? From the outside it looks closed at lunch time. And, just for the... More

This restaurant is awful. They called and changed my time after confirming on website and confirming with email. They offerred an earlier time or a time one and half hours later – they were totally inflexible as if my time was irrelevant. They encouraged me repeatedly to cancel if I did not like what they offerred. They change the prices... More

Love the tapas, especially during happy hour. Love the desserts, too. Too busy eating to take pictures of the food.

This place is fun and we love coming here for drinks and Tapas. Great food! The Barbacoa tacos are amazing! The goat cheese plate is a must. The humus plate is great, too. Cocktails are fun here and when it is warm, it is nice to sit outside.

Very average food. I ordered pasta with chicken which was Luke warm. It tasted reheated rather than fresh cooked since the chicken had that next day rubber texture.

I came here for dinner with the family and had a good experience. The ambiance is dark but not too romantic. Our server was personable and overall it was an enjoyable evening We all had cocktails and they we very good, and my mojito was excellent. We shared four starters, which were cooked to perfection. So were all the entrees.... More

We were very pleased with Coco Cabana in Dublin (the former location of Stacy's at Waterford). We opted to go with tapas and shared several dishes. The empanadas were very good, coco shrimp was delicious, crab cakes were pretty good, and the desserts were outstanding. I am looking forward to going back to try some entrees. The only negative is... More

The Coco Cabana is located in Pleasanton, Ca. part of a relatively new area. The interior is modern, loud, but you can escape to the outside for reduced noise, weather permitting. There is a bar/lounge and a menu with Tapas and main courses. They also have a happy hour every day, different hours on different days . (Happy hour prices... More

Had business lunch. The food was excellent; the waiter was friendly; the atmosphere was wonderful. I had the Chili Verde Chicken Enchilada and am usually not a fan of Enchilada but this was fantastic. Next time I will try the Barbcoa as they were out of it due to being busy during the weekend! Please correct the City name; this... More
