Expert review of Cococabana

Yes, "Hong Kong" and "beach restaurant" can fit in the same sentence.

Chef/owner John Paul Gauci picked a winner with the location, and followed up with the menu and décor. I have a lot of happy (albeit blurred) memories of watching the sun go down (come up?) here. 

Food and drink: 

It's very much Mediterranean, full of flavour and with plenty of wine to go with it.

Recommended dishes: 

The Piri Piri prawns are Coco's signature dish. 

Ambience: 

Get the sun out, and it's heaven. Even on less balmy days, this is a fun place to be, sand between the toes and party music playing. 

Service: 

The staff enter into the spirit of things, and are swift and efficient to boot.

Location: 

It's on the south side of Hong Kong Island, right on the beach.

Price advice: 

It's very reasonable - assuming it's not a very long lunch (or dinner) you should pay around HK$350 per head.
