Description: Cocomo Restaurant is situated in the centre of a beautiful village called Wilderness - the heart of the Garden Route. Cocomo as a unique thematic embellishment drew inspiration directly from the spectacular beauty of our natural surroundings and setting it provides for the local residents, national and international travellers alike. This concept restaurant truly captures the tropical sentiment ideal for optimum relaxation, an intimate haven ideal to share and enjoy the pleasures of life. At Cocomo Restaurant visitors are able to experience an eclectic mix of tropical village lifestyle and flavourful cuisine, reflecting the dynamic aesthetic of Wilderness, its unspoiled beauty and the vibrant colourful atmosphere created by its people. Cocomo is inspired by our passion and appreciation for places that reflect a lively, relaxed and festive spirit all year around, providing a distinct atmosphere while offering tropical fusion foods, exceptional Illy coffee and of course some of the finest South African wine. Local artists also often enjoy performing at Cocomo due to the idyllic environment incomparable for musical entertainment and joyous get-togethers. Cocomo is very popular and alluring to the public in its warm, friendly, relaxed, cozy and visually pleasing nature. It further lends itself to a focused approach in cherished relations with customers, providing affordable products of high quality and fine presentation, paired with outstanding service in our strive towards realizing customer satisfaction every time.

This past weekend we visited Cocomo restaurant, The service was slow but acceptable, the vibe was average a bit noisy, the food was average, I would say this is more a hangout for young people going for a drink.

Hi guys, please accept my apologies for receiving slow service. The service in Cocomo Restaurant should always be prompt and attentive, seeing to your needs in an appropriate manner and timing! We focus very hard on only delivering the best all round experience for our guests, young and old! We have put a lot of time and effort in creating our new menu (live from December 2013) to ensure only the best quality products get used to create an amazing dining experience.

We welcome young and old from all over the world on a daily basis!

Our restaurant also has 5 different sections to suit everyone’s needs. We have our courtyard area which is closest to the live music and thus a little bit “louder”, our inside dining area with a view of the stage, dining area with bigger tables for groups as well as a couple of cosy small tables for the romantic, an under roof deck area also with a view of the stage and our front street café deck (furthest away from the live music) where you can watch the village life go bey.

I always communicate this through to my staff to make sure that guests are comfortable where they are sitting, if not, we have a spot for you to feel at ease.
Hope to see you soon for a great meal and amazing live music!

Keep well

Cocomo is great! There you can watch sport, have a romantic date, eat out with the family, have a jol or just enjoy a couple of cold beers with the boys. Young and Old(er) people are equally welcomed and can both enjoy the Cocomo experience. The food is good, the service is friendly, the prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is perfect. They also have great cocktails (and cocktail specials!) and there is often live music. If you are staying in Wilderness for any length of time, I would recommend you 'like' their Facebook page so you can be kept updated with the live entertainment schedules and great specials. Give Cocomo a try.... you WILL NOT regret it!

“Good food”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I liked the vibe of the place. There were obviously a lot of regulars but we never felt out of place. The pizza was very good and the waitress very friendly. She forgot about us a bit after the place got a bit crowded so our last orders took a while.
