The new beachfront venue offers up Insta-worthy drinks and comfort food.

A fresh new beachfront restaurant, Koko Bay has opened on the picturesque West Beach development on Palm Jumeirah. Inspired by the beaches of Bali, the restaurant offers pleasing boho-chic interiors plus a toes in the sand al fresco dining experience.

Featuring a menu of modern Asian and European-influenced dishes, alongside bespoke beverages Koko Bay is ideal for those looking for a relaxed afternoon or an enchanting evening under the stars. Come for the breathtaking sunset views and stay late into the evening.

Showcasing healthy salads, a raw bar, hearty mains and a wood-fired Robata grill tended to by a dedicated grill master, the Koko Bay culinary team has dreamt up an extensive menu packed with flavours, colours and premium ingredients. Guests can tuck into starters such as lava prawns, assorted grilled skewers, Hokkaido scallop ceviche with a citrus granita and a selection of unique maki rolls such as organic quinoa, crispy kale and beetroot. 

For the main event, choose from piping hot plates of Nasi goreng, Cantonese style steamed red snapper, slow-cooked beef cheeks, Koko Bay fish and chips, or dive into succulent burgers, crisp salads and perfectly grilled seafood and meats from the wood-fired Robata grill. For those with a sweet tooth, the flambéed white chocolate dome, refreshing Mochi and zesty dropped lemon tart all come highly recommended.

Koko Bay takes advantage of its picture-perfect beachfront location and offers a casual yet chic setting. The venue features light and airy interiors and notable Balinese influences that include natural handwoven materials, a neutral colour palette and rustic finishes. The indoor décor spills out onto the spacious terrace and private beach so guests can relax upon a sun lounger or take a dip in the ocean. Handy lockers and an onsite shower facility make it easy for beachgoers to transition from the restaurant to the sand.
