“Great food, too crowded.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Been there many many times, the place is always crowded and you end up waiting for a whole hour at times. The seating is very awkward, especially the outdoor area where the chairs are more for lounging than eating. So you wonder why I've been there many times? Because the food is good and, frankly, there aren't too many good food/good price options in Bahrain. Most other places that have good food will burn a hole in your wallet!

At Coco's, I feel like the servers are either not interested or just so overworked that they can't serve a proper meal anytime. Has never happened. The starters will come after the main, or the mains will take so long that you're ready to leave.

I really wish they'd start taking reservations!

“Excellent food in a rustic setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Cocos is one of my favorite restaurants in Manama that serves great food. Fun place to hang out with family and friends.

“So crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Been coming here quite often now. The variety of dishes is excellent and the taste is very good. The seating arrangements are awkward and its always full and you have to end up waiting for an hour (Why not allow reservations by phone!). The place is so crowded with literally half of the people standing and waiting for tables in a crammed restaurant. Anyways, if your visiting Bahrain for the first time its a must try. Otherwise, I would go somewhere else or only come here when its not crowded. If you wanna come here I suggest listing your name on the waiting list and then heading to one of the other places for some light appetizer/juice.
Try getting a table outside if the weather is nice, you will enjoy that

“Best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Since I came to Bahrain, I heard a lot about this place. When I got the chance to pay it a visit, it was a perfect food experience for me starting from the soup till the main course with sips of ice tea. After all I was expecting to pay a ton of monry, but the price is very reasonable. I love it.

“Popular with the locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Coco's is easily missed as there is no signage, it is a white building between Lilou and Zoe. It is always busy and there is almost always a wait for a table. Its a good idea to make a reservation or go half an hour early, get a table waiting and then go to Zoe for a drink.

The restaurant is unlicensed. The food simple but good. There are nice touches that make it quite chic. Sit inside or out! Its not the best in the area but it is good value and simple. The iced tea is really good though!!!
