“Good food in a great setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

As you walk through the entrance the deck opens up into a clean, tidy and well decorated restaurant right on the beach. Staff are attentive and friendly. A good variety on the menu and everything we had was well presented and tasty.

We'llbe back.

“I'll Be Back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

My fiancé and I went here for the first time last night and we both loved it! It has an amazing out door setting right on the beach and a fantastic atmosphere. There is loads of space so you are not sitting right on top of the table next to you, which I really appreciated. I also think that (for Luanda) this menu was great value. Given the standard of food and service, I think this could very easily become a favourite haunt. I had the fish soup and seafood linguine which were both lovely. My fiancé had the beef carpaccio followed by chicken and spinach pasta. All portions were generous but not ridiculous in size. There was no shortage of bread and they also bring you appetisers when you arrive (olives and marinated mussels) So with two starters, two mains, appetisers, two cocktails each and a bottle of white wine, the bill came to US$160 which again I have to say, for Luanda is amazing! My value rating that I am going to give is totally forgetting about what you would pay elsewhere in the world and is simply comparing against other Luanda restaurants, which is really what you need to do here!

“Great caipirinhas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

- really great caipirinhas, didn't skimp on the cachaca
- nice quiet spot, with a view on the ocean
- menu was pretty comprehensive, seafood dominated, but good selection overall
- not overly expensive for Luanda

- had the mussels starter. not bad, but slightly overcooked
- had the sole main with a side of steamed potatoes and veg. fish was good, but potatoes and veg were rock hard

“Nice place to enjoy your lunch or dinner :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

cocunuts is situated at the bay on Ilha de Luanda. Very nice location, quiet and with a nice breeze from the sea. Tried the coconut shrimps (obviously?) the fish soup and the grilled fish. Not quite up to western standard but still good food, great staff and a lovely place to sit outside!
