Hola! Great Food, Great Times! There’s so much going on at Cocina…

Kids eat for £1 during half term.

It's back by popular demand! Kids can eat for just £1 at Cocina during half term! 

We know it's hard to keep the little ones entertained during school holidays, so why not pop down to your local Cocina and introduce them to the joys of Mexican food? If you're worried your little one will find it too spicy, fear not! Our specially prepared kids menu is designed for milder palettes. Quesadillas with a choice of fillings and plenty of cheese! Grilled chicken strips or Cod Goujons served with Mexican fries and a drink all for a mere £1. Authentic, healthy and cheap, the perfect way to feed the family and give yourself a break from the cooking at the same time.

Offer is valid all day from Monday - Friday in all of our Cocina restaurants, with a full paying adult when children eat from the kids menu. We're looking forward to saying hola! 

Buy 1 get 1 free on gluten free meals

To show support of Coeliac awareness we are offering buy 1 get 1 free from our gluten free menu. We have recently launched an extensive new gluten free menu, which offers a huge choice for gluten free diners. From naked burritos, salads and burgers through to our excellent Mexican tapas, there is something for every taste at Cocina.

Coeliac disease is caused when the immune system reacts to gluten, which can be found in wheat, barley and rye. Eating gluten when you have Coeliac disease causes damage to the small intestine. Around 1 in 100 people in the UK have Coeliac disease and more people are choosing to opt for a Gluten Free diet. You can find more information on this here.

Make sure you get yourself down to Cocina between the 14th and 18th May to take advantage of this great offer. If you buy a meal from our Gluten Free menu, you get a second one absolutely free! So the only question remains, what should you have for dessert?

Taco time just got better!

Since opening our fist Cocina back in September 2017 you’ve been loving our selection of tacos! But one thing we heard over and over again was that you wanted more! So we’ve listened to you!

Over the next few weeks our brand new menu is being rolled out across all of our restaurants. All our taco portions will now include three rather than two tacos. Meaning it’s always taco time at Cocina!! We’ve kept the delicious fillings that you love, but added that extra portion to keep your happy! 

Make sure you share any pictures of you tucking into your new tacos with us on Instagram or Twitter. We'd love to see them!
