About Us

Coco's Cantina is a simple, neighbourhood restaurant serving homestyle, Italian inspired food on Karangahape Road in Auckland City, New Zealand. Opened in 2009 by sisters Renee and Damaris Coulter who grew up within the hospitality industry. You will still find Renee on the floor, alongside one of the longest serving hospo teams in Auckland. Damaris has gone on to create The Realness, an amazing website that helps diners find eateries like Coco's anywhere on the planet; dedicated to sustainability and craft, who are independent, owner operated and one of a kind. Check it out at www.therealness.world.

Coco's food is seasonal, rustic, and made from quality ingredients and locally sourced produce. Suppliers are hand picked for their like-minded approach - the majority are owner operators who, like Coco's, focus on quality and craft. The service at Coco's is friendly, fast and fun, and dining with them is like being at a friends house. Don't take the reviews on Coco's homepage seriously, they don't, and thats exactly why the reviews are there. Instead, they encourage you to experience Coco's for yourself, enjoy their hospitality and if it suits your palette, join them again .
