Coquine is a very chic and boutique-like with its patterned walls, carpeted lightshades, huge wall mirrors and teal green decor! It has a bar area in the middle of restaurant. Secluded at the back of the restaurant is an oval table surrounded by high chairs! A nice setting for having drinks and food with a group of friends!
Sunday brunch was our visit to Coquine. To start with, we had a blueberry smoothie! A big glass of goodness made with blueberries, milk and honey!
It had to be the eggs benedict for brunch! I’d asked for my eggs to be well cooked. The eggs benedict was supposed to come with either ham or salmon but I asked if I could have spinach instead. The waitress said that would be ok.
We weren’t waiting too long for our food but when it was served, my eggs had been cooked so that they still had soft yolks. I told the staff that this was not what I asked for. They swiftly took the dish away and not long after, I was given another eggs benedict.
The dish was nicely presented: soft toasted muffin halves generously topped with spinach, eggs and hollandaise sauce. The eggs benedict together with the blueberry smoothie were thoroughly enjoyable!
The staff at Coquine were really helpful and gave service with a smile. Coquine had a great relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant was fairly small so I can see why they advise you to make a reservation!
