I can’t fault this restaurant. My husband and I had the 5 course degustation menu, which is great value, every course had that Mmmm factor. The service was excellent, just the right amount of time between each course and the wait staff always had a smile. The whole experience was perfect and we look forward to visiting Cocotte again.

Fabulous food, a real local hidden gem. An interesting Japanese French fusion hidden away in Robina. My hubby loved the brisket and I enjoyed the quail. We're not big eaters, and shared the pork belly starter, which was also fantastic. For a foodie night out, highly recommended.

Valentines day 5 course set menu was a stunning 10/10. A fusion that shouldn't work together actually works perfectly. A hidden gem.

The only complaint we had of the night was the service ............ we were sat down then forgotten. It was like we were invisible for 40 minutes. Four other couples sat down after us then they were getting water, drinks and some started getting there food aswell. So my husband got up to see what was going on and to do something about it.

We have eaten at Cocotte a number of times over the years and always enjoyed the experience. The food is always excellent and innovative, service unobtrusive and it makes the most of the Queensland climate by using its covered back garden as its main restaurant . It is one of those local neighbourhood restaurants that is comfortable, serves up quality food, a good wine list -a local gem.

Dining at Cocotte is an inviting and quality experience. The food is superb, and the service is attentive and understanding. I would recommend as a date night AND family dining, as Cocotte ticks the boxes for both types of meals.

Master Chef Shunichi Tanabe has managed to hide his brilliance under a bushel (so to speak) in a small shopping centre in Robina, Gold Coast, Queensland. My fear is that he will be snapped up by some large international concern and we will no longer be able to experience this brilliance locally. Superior food.

This was recommended by a friend and it lived up to its promise. The service was excellent and food outstanding. A little work needed on the decor and the clear drops where in a bad state of repair. But I will be back.

The food here is creative, delicious and Shun somehow creates a wonderful balance of French and Japanese flavours. Everytime we have been there is something different on the menu, or a new special and we have difficulty choosing what to eat. This is our favourite place on the Gold Coast.

Our booking was at 6:45. We were only two people and ordered 6 entres between us. By 9pm we only received 4 of them. We ended up cancelling the rest and going home. Was not planning on still eating at 9:30pm. Food was good but service very slow. Restaurant was full and there were only one staff taking orders and one trainee in the floor.
