    My vocabulary will not do this establishment any justice. I have enjoyed every single bit of this experience. A biiiiiiiig thank you to Lara, Chris and Blessing for making this the most beautiful 'flight' ever. You come highly recommended. I am just in awe. Once again, thank you very much to you all at Coco Safar. I cannot wait to introduce my Jhb and PE fam and friends to this. You will most certainly see me there soon!

    1. The service weren't great - we did not see the waiter often and waited a long time for our drinks. 2. We had to ask for the soup that was on the afternoon tea menu, as we did not receive it with our food and then it only arrived with the deserts. 3. The menu stated 2 different flavour macarons and only 2/4 of us received the 2nd macaron, because I assume they ran out. 4. We had 2 vegetarians at our table which I made clear when I made the booking and still they weren't catered for - they rectified the mistake after they brought the food and I noticed the chicken liver parfait. I am a little disappointed and expected more of this experience - I am not likely to recommend the high tea to anyone.

    The sweet options as well as coffee and all drinks where absolutely amazing! We did the Mother's Day High Tea, and the dessert selection was by far the best on the menu. I was however highly disappointed with the savory selection. The sizes of the portions was a bit ridiculous. We had a quarter of a flat croissant each, a half of a half of a mini bagel, it was ridiculous considering the price I paid! Then when the dessert came, the portions where a decent size but way too much. Our waiter was nice but obviously overworked and did not have enough time to give proper attention to our table. I had to wait 20mins for extra milk. The one female manager was incredibly rude! We arrived half an hour early because my mother is disabled, and we had no idea where the restaurant was, so we wanted to arrive early to get her comfortable. We did not mind waiting as we where early, but the manager treated us like a major inconvenience, and when I asked her how the High Tea would work, she was dismissive and told me I had to wait for a waiter to assist me. For the price that is asked to dine here, and the service and treatment we received I will certainly not be spending my money here again and will most highly discourage all my friends and family from visiting.

    What a disappointment it was ! This was our second time we went back to celebrate Mother’s Day. It was my first mother’s day so we wanted to make it real special. We decided to book for the High tea experience and booked on the 3 of May for 3 pax When we got to Coco Safar our booking was for 13:30 and when we got there they say our booking was for 2 pax after we booked and confirmed for 3 pax We had wait and sit outside for 20 min cause they didn’t have a table for us cause we had a pram. Once we got to our table they said we can’t do the full high tea experience only the mother day tea. After a long fight with the manager who kept telling up we where in the wrong and we didn’t book for the right stuff we decided to leave. The owner came and spoke to us, what a kind man ! We decided to stay and eat of the normal menu. We placed our order and we had to wait an hour and a half for our food I had the “8 hours” brisket - i was highly disappointed by that dish The brisket was so dry i chocked twice The chips that was supposed to be triple fried chips was oily and cold My mom had the Fish and chips The poppy seed fish was so full of pepper it burned and was just dry This was probably the worst meal and day ! They where over booked and the management is wrong to fight with guest !!
