    Find the food overpriced. Just because of the location. I had also booked and yet it didn’t come up on the reservations list and they had to “find” a table for us. I honestly believe that we stood out. Didn’t look pretentious enough. That’s my personal opinion. The food is tasty, but not wow factor.

    Food was absolutely delicious, service was great. We ordered mashed potatoes and steamed veggies special dishes for our 9 month baby grandson as soon as we arrived to feed him earlier and the chef and staff accommodated us promptly. We are delighted as always of our evening city views and it is always a pleasure to dine Coco’s Restaurant .

    We went to Coco's about this time last year. Everything was great. This year there were problems. We booked early and expected a window seat. Didn't happen. The food was good but not great. The tasting plate at $59 was good but not exceptional. I said to the waitress my barramundi for the mains tasted a bit flaky. Her response was to go off and serve other customers. Overall it was pleasant but not what you'd expect for the prices they charge. On top of which there is a credit card surcharge!

    The food is always fabulous however the service was terrible. Very very disappointing. Won’t go back as the lack of service makes it a very expensive meal.

    Location and view are the highlights. Great selection of wine. The food was ok and the service was good. We thought it was quite expensive though for what you get.

    I rang through days before and told the office that i was disabled and use a goffer to get around, was told by the office no problem the restaurant is disabled friendly, which after arriving I was struck by how unfriendly the so called 5 Star restaurant is totally unfriendly for people in wheel chairs or mobility aids, if I had been totally disabled i would have been unable to use the rest rooms as for wheel chairs that would have been totally inaccessible. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone though the food was ok but expensive.

    Lovely venue with generous main serves. Whilst it is a little pricey, the food is of a very high standard and the service was attentive and friendly.

    Been here a few times now in the past couple of weeks. Love the setting and location. Still think the food is overpriced. Have eaten better eye fillets and fish at other venues all around Perth, but you’re paying for location and name at Coco’s. I find the service hit and miss. Some good hosts and attentive staff but others (runners, or untrained wait staff) let the team down. Better service should be expected from this location.

    I love my duck dishes and until today have been very disappointed recently with the variety of duck dishes I've been presented with, but I must say i really enjoyed tonight's duck. Compliments to the chef!

    Overall, it is a nice location, let down by a few poorly trained staff and the price of everything, which struggles to deliver value, as at these prices, it has to exemplary, which it is not!

    Unexpectedly brilliant!! Food was really delicious without exception. service was personal, polite and attentive without being overbearing. Waitress was new or learning and even though she didn’t know a couple of things or made a couple of mild mix-ups they were rapidly corrected with very little/no inconvenience. Will definitely return again soon after not going here for many years.

    Have always enjoyed the food at this establishment,cannot remember at anytime over many years of not enjoying. As far as the service the girls as well as the guys act extremely professional and always very helpful. Presentation of food I give top marks ,so naturally we will definitely be returning.

    The restaurant views are amazing and the staff always try to go that mile ahead. The wine list is quite extensive which is great. However the food menu lacks sophistication and is not value for money. I believe the chef should reconsider the menu.

    Very pricey! Used an Entertainment Voucher which helped! Food was quite good though. Only 1 little potato comes with a steak dish - sides are extra and so are sauces / gravy. Duck was well cooked, very nice. Sticky Date Bomb Alaska - nice caramel sauce!

    Service was absolutely terrible. Table wasn’t ready when we went in which was okay, but to wait just short of 10 minutes at the bar to be even asked for our drinks order isn’t great. Dirty glasses were lined up half way around the counter too. Bar lady also tried to pawn off a cocktail to me that was made earlier, it was a margarita and half the salt had melted around the glass, she honestly rolled her eyes when I wouldn’t except it and wanted her to make a new one - no jokes, and it cost in or around $19 a cocktail. To be fair dinner was lovely so well done to the kitchen staff, the ragu beef and fillet steak were absolutely beautiful, as was the side the side of truffle mash, although we ordered a side of greens with the main course - which we never got, not that we were even asked once “how was everything” “or would you like anything else” (Wasn’t offered the option of a steak knife either) Nobody checked on our meal once, nor did anyone ask us did we want another drink in the 20 minutes we were eating dinner, can I just note that we had an empty glass that was sitting at the end of a table which a staff member cleared away without any correspondence from them. To be fair I did politely voice my opinion to the manager at the end about the service when we were paying the bill and he took the drinks off the bill as compensation, (had to remind him to take the side of greens off too that we never got) but overall it was not a pleasant experience, I had heard mixed feedback on this restaurant before we visited as regards service but wanted to try it anyway, but overall I found their service very poor, would absolutely never return.

    Food was lovely. Dessert was okay. Server didn’t write down the order and got it wrong (memorising doesn’t impress me and inevitably something is missed). We were seated outside and cigarette smoke drifted in. Wife got a couple of mosquito bites. Asked to be moved inside but was assured the smoker was leaving soon. Servers were excellent. Very friendly and attentive. Would’ve been much better if we had been given the choice to sit inside.

    We were placed on the high tables at our request to be outside. We were looked over and ignored until I rang the restaurant to playfully ask for some service. The person in charge who answered apologised and from that point the service was great.

    Menu is quite big so takes a bit longer to make a decision when everyone is chatting. Good quality food. Would prefer to have water on the table rather than having to ask for it. Most of the wait staff were pleasant and attentive.

    The menu could be more friendly. Its like reading a newspaper article. The selections were not great and the presentation was the way I would serve it at real panache. My wife had pasta which she says was OK. I had the fish sashimi. Make sure you order a side dish as well. Herein lies another problem. Mashed potatoes, broccoli etc. Each one looked as uninviting as the next. The view was wonderful.

    Wow, Coco's you have really gone to the dogs. On the surface, classy and beautiful as always, but the food was salty and bland, service was sparse, management rude. We waited 40 minutes to clear our table after finishing mains, and only then after waving down a table attendant to do so. Same story with drinks, and again after dessert, and a struggle to get the attention to get the bill. I have entertained clients at Coco's for years now, and after such an experience where my international business guest was treated rudely and with distain when he shared his views with (the owner?) upon our settling the bill, I will never be back, nor will I ever recommend it to anyone ever again.

    Whilst this is a lovely location and I am happy to pay for good food the meals we received, all four of us, were really unacceptable for the price charged. Entry size portions at $45?
