Was a lovely place, the music was really nice but seriously loud. By the end of the night I had a sore throat from having to scream to have a conversation. Overall, nice food and nice service.

The food was well cooked, but nothing special really.
Has a cocktail, but it was really sickening sweet. They need to tweak that.
Over all lovely restaurant and attentive staff.

First time using Cocina after Chiquitos closed down, was really looking forward to a good Mexican however this was very very overpriced, your talking £12 a cocktail and it was not even very strong, food was okay but I don't believe it was worth the price.

Really lovely restaurant, with great food and great service.
There is potential to make this an outstanding place to visit by introducing evening Latin American singers and dancers. This would introduce a whole lot more energy to the evenings and take this place to another level.

The restaurant decor and layout was very relaxed and inviting and the music completed the experience . The food was flavoursome with the right amount of seasoning. We had a burger and chicken fajitas which were delicious. It was also served hot and well timed as we were on our way to the cinema. The portion sizes were good, not too much or too little. Best of all, the staff were friendly and accommodating. Great food and service!

This was such a disappointment, I had booked a table before going to the cinema so turned up early on Sunday evening. Our table was booked for 5pm and we were a few minutes early so the waitress took a drinks order from us. We were one of vewry few people in there and not only did it take about ten minutes for the drinks to start being made it then took another 5/8 minutes of them being sat on the bar with 3 staff members standing next to them chatting. We eventually ordered food, 3 starters and tacos to share. None of the starters came out together and they forgot the 3rd one. My partner asked for a double vodka and lemonade and after a long wait he was served a drink with no alcohol in. He went to speak with the bar attendant at the time and the guy serving started to argue with him at which point we wanted to leave. No sense of urgency, terrible bar staff. I will not be coming back.

Food portions where small. I asked for a drink it came after my mains where finished. We asked for the bill 3 times before it came to the table.

The ladies where polite when they did interact with us. The ambiance and atmosphere was very nice.

Food quality was somewhat lacking. Best thing was the mex-fries. Service was not good. We asked for it all at once, and that certainly did not happen. Was a total mess and food got cold before others were served. Drinks were good. I guess I would use this place for cocktails during happy hour only.

No Mexican would recognise it as anything to do with them, and you could buy a restaurant in Mexico with the bill for 4.

Cocina is the worst restaurant, we’ve ever been to, in our entire life. Me and my 2 kids were there on Monday the 14th of December at 5:30. We had made the reservation via Opentable. We went inside and the lady said she couldn’t find our reservation, I was ok with that as I said we only booked a little while ago, she said, they had spaces so we went in. After going in, I was asked to make an online order due to COVID-19. It took me over 15 minutes to place the order as there was no reception. We made 2 orders and we received 4 emails to confirm the orders. After waiting for an additional 20 minutes, I spoke to the waitress who absolutely didn't know the meaning of personal space! Let alone social distancing! She stood so close and absolutely stank of food. I asked her about the order, she went to the bar to check and came back to say that they haven’t received any orders and asked to do it again. We then said if I could speak to the manager! A guy came Aaron came who was talking so loudly and was trying to intimidate us! I explained that we would like to leave now and we would like our money to be refunded, which showed up as pending in my account. He spoke so loudly and rudely and said that the money has not gone from my account and they did not received any order. The pending transaction will be cancelled. We left straight away. On Thursday, when I checked my bank statement, the money had left the account and so I called the restaurant and got through to them after several calls, I spoke to the manager Aaron who had absolutely no manners to talk or to actively listen. He didn’t even let me finish my conversation and asked me to call the next day if they have the cash they will let me know until then wait, he was so rude and ill-mannered. I was absolutely shocked. He wasn’t talking. He was shouting at me at the end of the phone. Obviously, I will never visit the restaurant again. Now I know why it was always empty!!

The restaurant called up and cancelled on us for the 2nd time I have booked to go there. Myself and my friends whom I was going with love to go there in the afternoon for a couple of cocktails and some food but this has happened to us twice now and it very upsetting. Unsure as to weather we will rebook as it seems quiet unreliable

Great addition to Uxbridge! The happy hour was good value for money. Service however wasn’t great, there felt there wasn’t enough floor staff and the ordering over the app was a little frustrating. Over the food and restaurant was great!!

Great food and price!
However, we weren't made aware we had to order through our phones and so spent half an hour sat waiting unknowingly as it was our first meal out post lockdown.

On the menu the 6 shots tequila should come with board
But it come on a round serving tray
I was looking forward to taking pictures of it for Instagram
It would have made more presentable and attractive
Otherwise it was a amazing experience
Thank you

Staff were not attentive and found to be quite rude. Staff just stood around gossiping and then ordered food from another place and all ran to the back like wild animals to eat? Really not professional. Food was pretty average nothing special and with out spice would be bland.

Understandably due To COVID-19, Cocina had a mobile ordering service. Now this was a real pain as a) the waitress simply took us to the table & said ‘download the app and place your order’ b) the app was hard to navigate on my husbands phone as his phone screen had broken earlier that day. In the end we ended up ordering an incorrect dish by accident. The waitress was so rude that rather than offering a replacement dish or throwing in something as a goodwill gesture as other restaurants do said that nothing could be done about it and insisted we had selected the incorrect item as per the receipt. Goodness, such poor service to not even OFFER to replace!

Lovely restaurant that felt clean and fresh. Service was a mixed bag, we couldn’t use the QR Code Menu as suggested to us as we walked in and subsequently felt like the lady didn’t like this who served us. She was generally unhelpful and unenthusiastic. A gentleman served us later on in the evening and was full of life and gave great service.

Food was fantastic and so was pleased with that, recurved our discount for eating out to help out which reduced the bill to a nice amount but full price it is in my opinion a bit expensive.

Overall a great experience, however the man at the front door needs a serious attitude adjustment. The first time I went to the restaurant I let his grumpiness slide as I thought he was having a bad day, but then to come back the next week to the same attitude and rudeness made me want to turn back around and leave the restaurant. However I’m glad I didn’t, and the food was amazing and so were the girls serving us. I particularly want to single out Georgia (sorry if I got her name wrong!) who has served us on both occasions, as she was so lovely and helpful. It made the experience so much better :) give her a raise and the send the other guy on a customer service course!
Will definitely be returning again.

Food and cocktails were great, however we had to wait for a table to be free even though we had a table booked. It seemed as if they wanted us in and out very quickly as we were rushed to get the bill.
