For Groups of 15 and Over: $65 three-course set menu, including shared antipasti, two sharing style mains, with shared sides, and pudding.
Are We Gluten Free/Vegan Friendly?
Yes. Our kitchen can cater to most dietary requirements, and if we can alter a menu item to suit your requirements, we will. Otherwise our amazing kitchen will work with what they can to whip something up. Check in with your waiter when you sit down, and they'll let you know what we have available on the day.
Are We Free-Range/Organic?
Yes, wherever possible, we use organic produce (we're about 95% organic at present). Our meats, dairy products, and eggs are all free-range and organically farmed in New Zealand. Our fruit and vegetables are, where possible, organically produced. If we can't get produce to meet our ethical and sustainability standards, we won't use it. For more information on our suppliers, feel free to ask any of our waiters or staff, or check out the back of our menu!
Why Don't We Take Bookings?
Some of the main reasons are;
- It's expensive for us. Confirming bookings via phone and email costs a small business in time, labour, and the phone bill.
- A lot of diners unconsciously prefer to eat dinner between 7pm and 8pm. Not taking bookings allows us a greater flexibility around what time people come, and encourages diners to come throughout the night, rather than all at one time.
- It's more fun. Coco's is an experience, not just a feed. Having a drink around the bar helps create a relaxing environment- its meant to be fun and enjoyable, and it contributes to the all round experience of a night at Coco's.
What If You're a Big Group?
We take one booking per night at 6pm for a minimum of 10 people. It runs on a $65 three-course set menu. You can book by following the link on our contacts page. If this doesn't suit your group, then you can feel free to just turn up.
Can You Save a Table for Your Group When You Arrive?
No. When you arrive, we'll put you on the waitlist, but we don't sit you down until all of your group arrives. This allows us to utilise our small space efficiently. Once you're all here, we will be able to give you a more accurate time on how long it will be until your table is ready.
How Long is the Wait for Food?
Your food takes as long as it takes. We are a busy restaurant and we make good food. This means that sometimes food takes longer than you expect to arrive in front of you. Ideally, we want food to come out as fast as possible for you. We aim to give you the best experience we can. If we think food is going to take longer than it should, we'll do our best to let you know in advance.
What Time Does Our Kitchen Close?
It depends how busy we are. On our busier nights we may close the kitchen at 10pm. On quieter nights we may close anywhere between 9pm and 10pm. If you're unsure, its always a good idea to ring ahead and check if we're still serving.
Where's Can We Park?
West Tce, K Rd, and adjoining streets.
After 6pm parking is free.
