                                                          Lovely meal, would have liked to have seen a bit more of a selection on the menu. A small selection of fine dining.. But what we got was delicious and decent prices. The surroundings was lovely too, nice and calm and warm. We will defnitely go again.

                                                          Very enjoyable Christmas Eve meal here. Great to see they are tight on covid procedures. Meals served promptly and fresh quality food. Our first time to eat here, had been meaning to try for a while but we will be here regularly now. Great team work, friendly staff and good food. The perfect combination.

Lovely pleasant atmosphere and service was prompt and very friendly. Polished our plates and coffee and fudge Devine for dessert. We were grateful to the staff for being open in these difficult times

                                                          We were put at a table in the middle of the floor just inside the door that looked like an after thought. We asked to be moved when we were shown to it but no other table available

                                                          We dined at Cooke’s on Friday night. Eamon and his staff were as always a joy to deal with. They are Covid compliant and the tables were well spaced out. From the start we felt comfortable and safe. The food was excellent. I tried the seafood platter special which was fantastic. I would highly recommend it. Great value for money & every course was excellent. It is great to have a restaurant of such high quality so close to home. The staff are extremely capable & friendly.

                                                          Prompt, efficient and friendly service. Nice cosy atmosphere. Plenty of choice. Food quality and value always very good. The Chilli Prawn starter is particularly good. The Beef Nachos very tasty too. All of the main courses are tasty and well presented. We would highly recommend Cooke's of Caragh

                                                          Very enjoyable night. Couldn't have asked for better. Nice quiet spot in corner. Staff are extremely pleasant from the front of house to the waiters. Food is really delicious. Nothing too fancy just really good produce cooked and seasoned beautifully. Have been there numerous times now and have never been disappointed. Price guide: Two starters, two mains one desert two coffees and lots of beer €98.

                                                          Delicious food, but portions are very small for the price, e.g. the poutine fries is €5.50 for a tiny bowl, and the Marie Rose fries €5.90 for the same tiny bowl.
