It was out first visit to Cocina. Didn't like the open front - means that the restaurant is not warm inside and is exposed to outside noise. Although our food arrived quickly, it was luke warm and one of the main courses seemed to be 50% rice. The only good thing is that the ladies serving were pleasant and helpful. Won't be going back there. Only one other couple in the restaurant - this place is not going to survive!

We had a booking for 7pm and were one of three tables eating - but by the time we left, it got a lot busier. Service was excellent, food was delicious and good value. Loved the chicken skewers and churros! Chose here for somewhere a little different and will definitely return... when we are drinking again, there’s too many cocktails we need to get through! The mocktails were fab though!

Despite the food being excellent the service was not good. We asked 4 times for a hush of water that never came. They forgot to bring side plates with the starter and then never came back to bring any. Not enough staff on in my opinion and if you sit upstairs you get forgotten about

One of the worst places I’ve eaten in for a long time. No main course after waiting two hours. Main turned up cold. Manager promised to sort out in 2 then 4 minutes... 10 minutes later nothing.
Simply put they are understaffed and the kitchen obviously can’t cope.
Spoiled my Daughters birthday.

Gorgeous food and amazing drinks and food menu. Service was very slow. Other customers received their food before we did after arriving 20 minutes prior to them. No check backs.

Nachos were by far the best i have ever had! the burrito was delicious and staff were friendly and eager to help! shame that they do not receive as many customers as the restaurants around, as this is truly a gem!

Seated quickly, offered alternative menus for gluten free/vegan without needing to ask. Slight problem with one of the drinks being missed off of the order but rectified immediately when brought to the attention of the waitress. Meal was very good. Portions are generous but they don’t mind you sharing starters etc and offered to bring out extra plates to make it easier.

The starters of Calamari were of a generous portion , but the main course of enchilada's were very sloppy and not much taste.

Restaurant and kitchen could not cope with a full house. Our food took just under an hour to arrive, much like many of the surrounding tables, but no explanation or apology was offered. We sent a plate back because the food was luke warm. There is a single toilet serving the whole restaurant.

The food was great.

However, we were seated near the toilet and as people went in and out, the door slammed loudly and the partition wall shook.

The waitress was apologetic as another couple sitting near us had complained about it.

My husband suggested to her that all they need is a soft close door attachment.

We were really disappointed with the food here. The food was very bland & wasn’t what we expected for Mexican food aswell as being quite expensive for what is was. We definitely won’t be returning.

The food was average for the price paid, although one part of my meal was not good at all. The manager however apologised and took this item off the bill without a fuss which was good.

Inattentive staff, they were more interested in chatting amongst themselves than taking orders.
Multiple items forgotten from food order.
Upstairs stank and the toilets were frankly disgusting.

Food was good and service was excellent - particularly liked the 'Buy One Get One Free' cocktails offer!! However the open fronted nature of the restaurant meant that it did feel more like eating in the food court of a shopping mall rather than a restaurant so I probably wouldn't go there for a special event.

Venue a bit too small which in turn felt like we were being watched. Food was OK but the service needs improving. The staff didn’t seem too sure on what they were doing and it felt a bit amateur

This was our first time eating here and it definitely won't be the last. The restaurant itself is quite small so I would recommend booking ahead of time as it started to get busy. We ordered starters and a main but the portions are on the larger side so make sure you have got the appetite.

The cocktails are also very nice and are reasonably priced, especially during happy hour.

I wouldn't hesitate coming back to Cocina and couldn't recommend it enough.

Went for brothers birthday. Amazing service, literally amazing. So attentive and helpful but not over the top! 👍🏻
Food was lovely and fresh and not too spicy (my choice), I’m sure you could pick some spicier things!
Good value for money and varied menu.
Environment is okay but it’s a tall metal building within a retail/sports building, so not very cosy. Will defo return!
