I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone young and old. We held my sisters bachelorettes at Cocomo's and went back 3 times afterwards for their cocktails . Their chicken livers peri-peri is a must!!

“LOVE this place and can't wait to go back!!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Me and the better-half visited her family in George (just down the road) for 3 weeks and luckily we found this place!! First visit on a Monday night just for a cocktail or 2, there was an incredible band playing, a wood fire burning, a really laid back atmosphere, very very good cocktails and incredibly friendly staff. Being a chef and working on some very nice restaurants in the UK for quite a few (too many!) years I have been around a lot of bar staff that couldn't care less and put little to no attention-to-detail into what they do... This place, however, is not like that! The tables around us had food which looked fantastic, plenty of passion in that! And when I went to the bar to order drinks they were more than happy to help. Had a nice conversation with the boys behind the bar and had some very well made cocktails. My only complaint was that it shut too early... Which, I suppose, was our own fault for only going out at 9:00pm... So, we decided to return the following night. Much to our surprise we were remembered by the bar staff, they continued the conversation we had the previous night and made us even better cocktails than before! Much appreciation to Elton who made us feel so welcome and couldn't be happier to help!
Now, I just have to wait until December until we are back over in George to get back down to Cocomo and hope they are still as amazing as before!

“Good Food, Poor Service”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

The salads we ordered were filling, wholesome & much enjoyed. Our waiter expected a decent tip but seemed unprepared to give a level of service to justify it.
