We were a group of 30 plus kids and they picked us up and dropped us off. Awesome!! They have an actual pizza oven and i got the goat cheese Mediterranean one and it was one of the best ive ever had. Hubby had the whole snapper which he probably wouldn't recommend again as although it was delicious it was smaller then Australian legal catching size and he felt a bit guilty and named it nemo lol. The tasting platters and bruschetta were seriously amazing quality with fresh herbs but the garlic bread was a hot dog bun sliced up ha-but had fresh garlic and herbs on it which totally redeemed it. They gave us bug spray and even had deet free kids ones for my toddler which surprised everyone and lit heaps of coils so no one had a single bite or even noticed a mozzie. Definitely come back on our next trip

BAD NEWS

Thank you for sharing your views both on Trip Advisor and on our Facebook page.

Bula Teena, obviously we apologise to you for the problems your group faced as this is not what we aim to do in the provision of a service.
while not trying to excuse the problems, it should be noted that we had a booking for a group of 20 that same night which was scheduled for 7pm. At 6pm, your larger group arrived, when asked if they had made a booking or were part of the same 7pm booking, the response was "that must be us". Obviously through some confusion and misunderstandings on both sides it was thought that this was the same booking.

As you can imagine a small eatery of our size has limitations to the number of meals it can produce at any certain time. We apologise for the delays you encountered and sincerely apologise for the issues you have raised.

According to the meal dockets, the orders for meals were made at 6:45pm, with the meals being unnacceptably late which we acknowledge, but this came about due to the chefs in the kitchen having prepared for the booking of 20, but instead being faced with supplying meals to 60 people (majority of these being your group).

As a new business we are constantly striving to improve and fix problems to ensure our customers have the best possible service. We welcome all comments both negative and positive as a means to improve.

We have spoken with the team about ensuring orders are taken and provided in an efficient manner and also the need to ensure bookings made are not confused with other customers.

We understand that this does not fix the problem which occurred on Monday night, but we hope it goes some way to explaining the situation behind the scenes which caused these problems.

This is a great venue for the locals and tourists alike. Its a breezy semi- open venue overlooking the ocean. Its hard to beat with a cold beer,feet up on the veranda and watching the sun going down while your pizza is being made. Very good pizza every evening except Tuesday.

We dropped in for lunch one day after walking past a couple of times. Diners have a view out past the palm trees to the sea, just across the road. We really enjoyed the meals as they were delicious and pretty inexpensive and the service was warm and friendly. Recommended!

We were all over the island from Port Denarau to the Coral Coast and Koko's was the best restaurant by far. We must have eaten there at least a half a dozen times over the course of the week, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

It is located on what is called the Sunset Strip, this little quaint beach front road on the Coral Coast not too far from the Outrigger.

The service was very good, quick and friendly and the food was awesome. We had grilled mahi, curries and they have a great monster typical Australian breakfast.

Sit on the patio where there are big wooden tables, or you can sit in a couple of the lounge chairs and put your feet up on the rail and watch the ocean.

And if you are staying in the area, they will even come pick you up and then drop you back off. Huge benefit especially if you're planning on having a few cocktails.

Would highly recommend.
