I go to Koko's regularly and on most nights the atmosphere is busy and lively. Bar staff are always up for a laugh. Lots of tv's so is a good place to view multiple sporting events at once. I would definitely recommend.

Quite simply the only place that any self respecting saucer should drink in Cathays. Serves lager. Their chef, Rupesh, provides a real breakfast experience.

Visit Koko's regularly and it's without doubt the best pub in Cathays. Great beer, food and lovely staff. Perfect location in the heart of Cathays. Could not recommend more.

Situated in the heart of cathays,newly refit cafe bar ideal for private functions and a nice buffet freshly prepared in the open style kitchen. KOKOS is normally a guaranteed good night and you may question how it could get any better….like most nights kokos is always buzzing during term time and hosts a few good private functions due to its popularity in its retro style music and good food.

Kokos in Cardiff is one of the city's most popular student venues, situated directly across from the university. The coffee lounge, bar and restaurant is open seven days a week, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, which makes it an ideal place for to chill out in. The bar boasts all day sports and
