Cocina in Swansea has closed today!
It's management have posted a statement on Facebook. It says:
'It is with the deepest regret we must notify you that Cocina Swansea has today had to close the doors. The city centre has proved to be too strong of a battle for us to survive??
'We simply cannot continue with the large costs far surpassing the levels of footfall. With the ongoing restrictions of the city’s road works, another business has lost the battle.
'We pray the City Centre will improve in the future, not just for the sake of local businesses but for the local people. We hope no other local entrepreneurs lose their livelihood by taking the risk and opening a business in the heart of, our once booming, city centre??
'We would like to take the opportunity to thank our fantastic staff for their continued dedication and our amazing customers that we have had the pleasure of serving??
'We apologise to all those that have booked your Christmas parties and were looking forward to the challenge of our rodeo bull – the recent scaffolding that has hidden our lovely restaurant has been the final horn through our heart.
'We're sorry from the bottom of our hearts...
'For the final time…. Adios Amigos!'
