Exceptional food. We had the seven course degustation and every course was beautifully presented and faultless. We went on a particularly hot evening and it was quite warm inside. Overall an enjoyable experience and we will be back.

Food is amazing...however service time between each courses was way too long. We’re arrived at 7:10pm and left at 10:00 on my birthday 23rd Dec. I fully understood it was Christmas time and I’ve been advised it might take up to 2 hours when I rang the restaurant making reservation. Still beyond my expectation...yes, 100 % satisfied of food, not recommend on serviceability

This restaurant used to be one of my favorite restaurants however it has gone downhill now. I was totally embarrassed that I had invited my important friends to this restaurant who have never been and I used to tell them raving about this restaurant always.
It took over an hour to get the entrees. All services were so slow and the waitress hasn’t got any character. My friend wasn’t happy how she got her entree and gave them a feedback but we didn’t hear any comment from the manager at all.
We ordered another bottle of wine and that took about 20 minutes to get.
Poor service and not impressive meal but it costs us just over $100 per person. At the end of the night, none of the staff came to explain why it was so bad nor apologetic. So disappointing and I’ll never go back again!!

Nothing to say about the food, was awesome . The service was very poor. I expect better service if I am paying that much for 5 dinner course. Everything was so slow there, and we came back so exhausted after 5 course dinner.

I can’t fault this restaurant. My husband and I had the 5 course degustation menu, which is great value, every course had that Mmmm factor. The service was excellent, just the right amount of time between each course and the wait staff always had a smile. The whole experience was perfect and we look forward to visiting Cocotte again.

Fabulous food, a real local hidden gem. An interesting Japanese French fusion hidden away in Robina. My hubby loved the brisket and I enjoyed the quail. We're not big eaters, and shared the pork belly starter, which was also fantastic. For a foodie night out, highly recommended.

The only complaint we had of the night was the service ............ we were sat down then forgotten. It was like we were invisible for 40 minutes. Four other couples sat down after us then they were getting water, drinks and some started getting there food aswell. So my husband got up to see what was going on and to do something about it.

We have eaten at Cocotte a number of times over the years and always enjoyed the experience. The food is always excellent and innovative, service unobtrusive and it makes the most of the Queensland climate by using its covered back garden as its main restaurant . It is one of those local neighbourhood restaurants that is comfortable, serves up quality food, a good wine list -a local gem.

Dining at Cocotte is an inviting and quality experience. The food is superb, and the service is attentive and understanding. I would recommend as a date night AND family dining, as Cocotte ticks the boxes for both types of meals.
