Terrible establishment. Open unofficially after-hours with aggressive guards, terrible food, and terrible service. I was literally and unfortunately dragged by the feet by a "guard" for laughing unacceptably loud at 3 am and was physically punched and kicked on the ground by the "guards." Again,...this establishment should not have been open according to the TimeOut website, and it literally seemed like I was ambushed by a gang during this episode. AVOID this place at all costs.More

I was on my way to the Time out Market when I saw this place. The Time Out was so busy it was very impractical for a single person to get lunch, a drink and a seat without some sort of calamity. I returned to...Cacau which was still rather busy. I was trying to secure a table and order my food. The waitress saw my predicament and told me to sit down. I was thus waited upon when the places policy is to order and pay at the counter. I wanted sardines but they had all gone for the day. I thus went for a dorada with salad and a half carafe of white wine. The fish was grilled beautifully with lovely crispy skin. The salad was fine and the chilled dry wine went down a treat. I was then served an espresso to finish off. The food was excellent, the service was above and beyond the call of duty, and all was good.More

Unfortunately not a good review. We waited to be served at the counter in an all but empty coffee shop only to end up sitting outside because nobody served us. The waitress then came over and told us that for coffees we needed to sit...inside. After finding a table she told us we needed to order at the counter and then served the person behind us first and walked away when it was our turn. At this point we should have left but finally ordered our coffee. It was cheap enough but I wouldn’t return.More
