“Very busy cafe/restaurant”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

I couldn't describe this as a restaurant - more of a cafe judging by the cafe style metal chairs and busy atmosphere. It's absolutely necessary to book as its very popular with families and parties of people.

The setting is right on Catseye Beach and the building is open to the elements so take a jacket as the breezes can flow through.

The service however is very good and so is the food. The food is Thai influenced with other Asian options and there's a lot of choice compared to other restaurants on the island. My husband found several vegetarian dishes which we tasted and they were delicious. I found the sauce over my crispy whole baked fish far too sweet but the fish itself was good.

This restaurant/cafe is definitely worth a visit.

“Fantastic restaurant!!!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Coca Chu is a fantastic restaurant on Hamilton Island. Great atmosphere with beautifully cooked food. Booking is an essential if you don't want to miss out on a table. The service is excellent and the waiters/waitresses are all very helpful and friendly.

“Not for vegitarians”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

I was not able to buy a meal on the menu so chose two side dishes which I don't advise you to do! Service was fine.

“The Newest and the Best”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The most innovative menu - Asian fusion I suppose one would call it. Something very different, we enjoyed our roasted spicy nuts and pumpkin curry
