No matter what you’re planning, we’ve got you covered, as our Tunbridge Wells restaurant and bar is ideally equipped to provide you with a setting that captures everything you could want from an exclusive gathering of friends and family.

Join us on a tour of our bistro, restaurant and private dining room, and discover how our unique, enchanting spaces can elevate your evening from a memorable affair, to the ultimate celebration that will create memories to last a lifetime…

Three spaces in one
Did you know that we have three separate areas at Coco Retro? On the ground floor, our stylish bistro is relaxed and informal, while the refined first-floor restaurant offers intimate surroundings for an elegant experience. Finally, Le Cave is our atmospheric private dining area and wine cellar downstairs, seating up to 16 guests. Whether you’re hiring out one room or all three together, they each boast a distinctive look and feel.

A variety of events
From wedding receptions and birthday parties, to wakes and special celebrations, we can cater for any event. Working closely with you, we’ll personalise your experience to perfectly fit your needs, budget, taste and style, ensuring that the menu, décor and ambience is in keeping with your requirements. Be it a seated dinner with your loved ones in the restaurant, or a buzzing party atmosphere downstairs, there’s no occasion we can’t accommodate.

Menus to suit you
At Coco, it’s important to us that our food and drink is entirely bespoke and tailormade, as we create menus from scratch to reflect the wines, dishes and cocktails you love. Personalised wine pairings and whisky, gin and rum tastings are par for the course with our resident head bartender, mixologist and sommelier Federico, and our kitchen and front of house teams can host everything from sit-down meals to market-style banquets.

An immersive experience
To bring your visit to life, our friendly, welcoming and talented staff will make your time with us truly unforgettable, every step of the way. Federico’s expertise in all things wine and cocktails means he possesses the flair and showmanship to wow your guests at every turn, whereas owner and manager Maurizio’s warmth and charm is all you need to make sure that everything not only goes to plan, but surpasses expectations.
