The best place in Manchester for afternoon tea and all things sweet. I had an amazing time here with my sisters and the afternoon tea was beyond delicious. Staff was so friendly and catered to our every need. Thank you Cocoa Cabana.

Lovely. Can find no fault. If I had to single out something, I would say that the waitress was particularly attentive and polite. Would definitely visit again

I personally wouldn’t recommend Cocoa Cabana. I booked an afternoon tea for my birthday and was massively disappointed. While the afternoon tea was nice enough, it didn’t look anything like the images and I felt the price which was significantly high wasn’t in line with the food. You can go to a fine dining restaurant for afternoon tea and pay only a little more in comparison. While the staff were friendly, the service was clumsy and awkward. There place was empty which didn’t do much for the atmosphere. I also have concerns over the policies in place for Covid. While it’s great they’re taking temperatures, they did this after we had been served and the thermometer clearly didn’t work (if our temperature was actually 31 we would have required medical attention). Overall very disappointed but as I said the food was pleasant enough and the staff were friendly.

Had a lovely afternoon tea here right at the start of August 2020. The cakes were absolutely delicious and there were so many on offer in addition to the afternoon tea. Would recommend to anyone and will be back. Very spacious with new government guidelines so felt very safe, hand sanitizer everywhere and although there was not the capacity for loads of seats there was still a good atmosphere created with music being played.

Has management changed within the last year? We have been for afternoon tea before and really enjoyed the experience as well as the food. This time round the sandwiches and cakes were still good, although there was much less, however it didn't feel like a special afternoon tea experience and the tea was a basic teabag instead of a speciality tea brew. Unfortunately it just felt a bit blah.

This was booked as a birthday treat, and it was just that. We were expected when we arrived. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the service was very good. An excellent venue for chocoholics to get their hit. We will definitely revisit.

We were a little disappointed initially as we thought we had booked for bottomless afternoon tea with cocktails but that's actually only available in ancoats (not clear on the website) However, we very much enjoyed the vegan afternoon tea with unlimited hot drinks. The sandwiches were delicious (scrambled tofu, vegan cream cheese and cucumber and chickpea and sundried tomato). We also had two types of vegan chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, rocky road and a range of chocolates. All delicious! Staff were lovely and couldn't have done more for us. Ambience and setting was lovely. I would definitely come again and recommend to anyone looking for a good vegan afternoon tea option :)

Best hot chocolate I have ever had. The salted caramel scones are delicious along with the caramel tart. If you love chocolate and you need a chocolate fix, I can't recommend enough. Highly recommended. Shame it was on my door step and I didn't go sooner. But will return.

This was an awful experience in didsbury the person working there sat next to our table and was constantly on the phone doing his admin work and answering phone calls, we couldnt hear each other speak because of him. The kitchen door was open so that was also noisy and to to top it off everytime somebody wanted a drink we had the clanging of cups and the noise of the coffee machine was ridiculous. The sandwiches were plain tuna and egg mayonnaise and also stale but the cakes were lovely however it was so overpriced I would not recommend going there to anyone it's the worse place I've been for afternoon tea.

The positives were warm and friendly staff who created a nice vibe. The chocolate elements of the afternoon tea were also very good (unsurprisingly!) However it didn't feel as special as I'd have hoped (it was a treat for my friend). The sandwiches were quite uninspiring and poorly presented. We had to ask for extra drinks. The (one!) toilet didn't flush and the whole environment looks quite 'unfinished'...ricketty stairs and random heaters?! I would probably return for coffee and cake but not for a special event.

Lovely 1st visit, excellent service and the most food I’ve ever had for afternoon tea at a brilliant price. Nutella hot chocolate was lovely too.

The afternoon tea itself was a pleasant experience - food tasty, hot chocolate excellent, staff friendly. However I later discovered that I had been overcharged (I had had to pay a deposit, and the difference between that and the bill on the day didn’t tally). I emailed twice querying this and didn’t even receive a reply, let alone a refund. My scores reflect this. Not good to do this to people....
