                                                          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.

                                                          Food was lovely, service was great. I personally just thought a little bit skippy on portion size overall, especially the miserable little spoon of icecream with dessert. But over all nice restaurant. Will come back

                                                          A fabulous evening, with superb customer service throughout our stay, and glorious Food. We were all driving, but the selection of starters, main course, sides and desserts were excellent! The Specials Board was divine! I would HIGHLY recommend, and will definitely be back soon!

                                                          We were delighted with our last minute booking. Such a lovely restaurant, everything was spotlessly clean, the staff were so helpful and nice. They have all the co vid requirements in place. The food was so good. Would highly recommend.

                                                          First visit and will definitely return. The specials were excellent fillet steak and sea bass. Both substantial and very tasty. Service a bit hit and miss but overall good. The only complaint would be where our table was. We were straight in front of open door and we were both quiet cold. So we ate and left we couldn’t linger due to being cold. But overall very happy and will return.

                                                          Really nice food. Pub grub at its finest. Id highly recommend the chicken burger.
