“Coco Lounge is another one of my favourites. The food is great, and again they serve a mixture of continental foods Pizza's, burgers, pasta's, salads, desserts etc. Coco Lounge is a 5 min drive/taxi ride depending on traffic, as this restaurant is not far from the airport. I would advise leaving a bit earlier if dining around rush hour.”
