Friendly staff albeit they appeared over stretched. The mains were well presented and tasty - the penne pasta and the smoked haddock both highly recommended. Unfortunately the dessert was a big disappointment - the creme brulee very hard and gritty on the top, and lumpy custard. I appreciate it's a difficult dessert but frankly shouldn't be on the menu if the chef can't pull it off.

Still, definitely worth a visit - just avoid the creme brulee.

Have eaten here on numerous occasions, mostly Sunday evenings, and have never been disappointed.
Love the lazy Sunday menu, always great options, and the quality of the food is superb. The staff are friendly and create a lovely atmosphere.
Can't wait till next visit.

I'd heard excellent things about CoCo and I wasn't disappointed. The food was very nice. Not the very best I've had in Belfast but certainly in the top 5. The menu seems to favour fish dishes the most so if that's your thing then you should be spoiled for choice. The cocktails are also lovely and surprisingly reasonably priced. The decor is classy and cool with lots of interesting pictures on the walls.

But for me the highlight of the place was the staff. They are knowledgable and friendly and put you at your ease. After we finished our meal, they were happy for us to sit on for a couple more drinks in our own time. In some restaurants I've found service suddenly drops away once the meal is finished but this was definitely not the case here. Its also worth mentioning that while the menu prices do initially look quite high, portions are very generous and you could easily forgoe adding any further expense with sides. I'd definitely return to CoCo.

Centrally located just at the back of the City Hall, CoCo never fails to deliver - starched white linen, plenty of space between tables, a few little banquettes which are perfect for a long lunch and some quirky artwork set the atmosphere. The staff are always lovely and very professional. I just love the food - all super fresh and perfectly judged and sauced. The menu is always well balanced and intriguing and it's one of the few places I always order dessert. Today we had mains of Sea Trout with pea risotto and Smoked Haddock with champ, with a shared Chocolate Pave for pudding. Delicious as ever.
