Dropped in on a Sunday lunchtime with friends. Great, homely food and service. Seems popular with locals.

Hi guys, I am very glad that you have enjoyed your Cocomo experience. The live music we offer is for the enjoyment of our guest, weather having a drink or joining us for dinner. This can be a bit loud if you are sitting close by. Cocomo offers a variety seating options. The courtyard where the bands play ( normally the first seating area to be fully booked), under roof open deck, two inside dining areas and a "street cafe" open deck to accommodate everyone's needs. I have the perfect cozy corner for you in mind. Perfect to sit back, relax,enjoy your company's conversation.

See you soon!

Great vibe. Good food, no fuss. Most succulent hake in beer batter of the trip. In a town with the worst service, yours is shining like a beacon. Thanks guys!

We actually only stopped by for a drink after a sunset walk on the beach but ended up staying for dinner. I would suggest this place to the young crowd - it's all about live music and a surfer type atmosphere. The food wasn't inspiring but they make great cocktails and our waiter was super friendly and efficient.

Hi there, I am happy you enjoyed your cocktails and the good service. The fact that you didn’t enjoy your meal as much is very disappointing for me. We work extremely hard on making sure our service, meals and cocktails are of top quality and in your case we failed to do so. For that id do apologise and will focus even harder on delivering inspiring meals.
We welcome young and old from all over the world. Cocomo is a family restaurant and I do believe that we cater for every ones needs in their own special way.
Till the next time you stroll from the beach to our front door….
