The food is verry good- and the waiters are polite and welcoming. A little rushed, but the place is usually packed. All in all, a nice experience. The only downside I found is that because of the very spicy food our clothes smelled quite strong...More

Arrived at 9pm on Thursday. Managed to fit us with no reservation. 48 Euros for dinner for two with one beer each. Nice break from mussels.

We went to KoKoB on a Sunday night. We booked ahead and were glad we did as it was quite busy. It was our first time there and we opted for a vegetarian discovery menu. It was OK but, for us, no more than that....More
