Coco Grill & Lounge is a beautiful highly Instagrammable restaurant located in the heart of London over-looking the iconic Tower Bridge and River Thames.
It’s in a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the stunning views, whilst enjoying a delicious range of food and drinks. Working with the very best connoisseurs in the alcohol free category and known for its alcohol free menu, Coco Restaurant really excels when it comes to their ‘dry’ drinks – the flavours and the presentation are equally incredible– so much so that it’s worth a visit for mocktails alone, and of course, no hangover the next day.
The interior decor is beautiful and you’ll definitely want to take full advantage of the back drops so make sure you have plenty of space on that camera roll. On arrival, there are two beautiful pink blossoms trees at the entrance, alongside an outdoor seating area. I can imagine how picturesque this must be on a summer’s evening sat along the riverside. The chic atmosphere is accentuated atmosphere with green velour chairs and gold tables, giving off a really fancy vibe. Outdoor heaters ensure the terrace can be used for alfresco dining all year round.
Head inside via the red carpet which leads the way to reception, where you’re greeted and taken to your seat. One of the most beautiful restaurants I’ve been in, you’ll love the florals all around the restaurant, not forgetting the staircase to the toilets with floor to ceiling displays.
We sat in a booth style table area overlooking the restaurant. The waiters and waitresses were so wonderfully attentive and if you need help with selecting your food choices, they’re more than happy and helpful to assist.
The contemporary menu is influenced from the Anatolian peninsula and all the spices and herbs are carefully sourced for the finest tastes. All of the dishes are seasonal and work with a very close network of farmers to source halal certified meats. There’s a huge range of dishes to choose from covering, vegetarian, vegan, dairy free and gluten free options.
And so the theatre began. Each course of incredible dishes were presented to the table with a display of dry ice – unlike anything I’ve experienced before!
When we tucked into the food you could tell how much work had been put into the menu. The flavours were incredible! We started with juicy olives, classic hummus and fresh bread, cheese and spinach pide and crispy spiced chicken. This was perfect for two people sharing.
For mains we indulged in Tavuk Shish which is a Coco signature consisting of chicken and vegan plant based meatball spaghetti – a delicious dish which was perfectly for a chilly February afternoon and packed with so much flavour, again presented with the dry ice for maximum effect.
Because the outdoor seating looked so inviting we requested to have our dessert outside so that we could admire the beautiful view of Tower Bridge. It was cosy atmosphere with the heaters on, tucking into a luscious brownie whilst doing a little people watching.
While I’d highly recommend all of the dishes we tried at Coco Grill & Lounge, it’s more than just the food, it’s the whole experience. The ambiance, the decor, the delicious food and drinks, and all of the small attention to detail!
Book your table now and prepare to be wowed without a drop of alcohol in sight!
