We popped into Kakao to watch the Euro Final and had a great time. It was MOBBED with the crowd, but once we ordered, the bartender was prompt. We didn't eat, but the food looked great, especially the pizzas. Despite the French loss, the crowd was lively and fun, ordering Magnums of rose and playng football (American kind) on the... More

Food was ok, but cold. Terrible customer service, they treat you like an annoyance. Waiter never came back to offer another drink. When you thank them they don't respond. Avoid this place.

Great little hideaway, clean bar and restrooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. One very boisterous lady became agitated because we were given the table she wanted. It didn't matter to us so we moved, a whole 15 feet further away from the beach and the waiter was extremely grateful. Really nice people. These French liked these Americans just fine. lol.... More

We've been patrons of Kakao for 15 years - we love the restaurant, the owner, waiters and all the beach staff. Not your typical beach bar food but they do have a burger - really good seafood and salads. The specials are usually very good - especially the seafood specials. Great wine list and really nice service. Our favorite by... More

Spent a lovely day on Kakao beach and it was wonderful to just take a few steps up to the restaurant. It was beautiful to sit under one of the little pavilions and stare out at the ocean while having a fantastic French meal. Our waiter was a little stand offish, but overall had a wonderful experience!

Thank Karen B
