Wine matching needs review. Overall service and ambiance was great. Didn't enjoy the spot light in my face though

The restaurant had lovely views, we had a great table and the service was great. We ate the set menu which was $120pp and based on the food we had I found this a little expensive everything was nice apart from the dessert which had 5 mini options but I only enjoyed 2 but nothing was a standout wow dish!

Nice environment

This was my third visit to KoKo and unfortunately I left quite disappointed. The food was all up to it's usual standard but the service was INCREDIBLY slow. I was there for 2.5 hours and that was without any dessert or tea/coffee. The dishes took a very long time to come out and each item came out on its own - I'm not sure if this is how they usually serve their dishes as I don't remember it in the past but it meant there was a lot of sitting about with no food in front of us. Even after asking for the bill it took them a noticeably long time to a) bring it over and b) come back for payment. At $315 for two people the service has really put me off ever coming back.

Food? Avant Garde Japanese style but average quality.

dined on Wed, 4 Jan 2017

Service was very good. Entrees delicious, main courses disappointing - small serve size, lacking flavour and expensive. Dessert was lovely. Air conditioning was too cold. Won't return.
