Dined at Cookes of Caragh and it was exceptional. Everything was flawless from the welcome, Eamonn and his staff, the food (the teriyaki chicken wings are a must) and the Guinness is great. Eamonn ensures an enjoyable and relaxing ambiance. Very compliant with Covid could not find any fault and definetly will be returning soon to this gem.

A great effort by management to create a comfortable area outside where we dined. This area will need more heating as we move into colder weather.

My husband and I had a lovely sunday lunch as Cooke's, and we could not fault anything. The staff were very welcoming, the food was excellent, the only downside was that we wished we could have stayed longer.

Really nice food and setting.
Some small issues noted - bread came out chilled, sauce with steak was cold. No separate bowl for empty mussels shells, no lemon water for hands after mussels.
Small issues. We will be back!

The food was great as always however it was a very limited menu for a coeliac.

It seemed like it was under staffed but the staff themselves were friendly and attentive despite being understaffed

Family of 4, overall food was ok, the chicken burger with chips was a disappointment, burger came with just relish and side sauce, nothing else, small portion of chips! Staff friendly and attentive.

Lovely restaurant- the kind of place you'd like to linger on in. The menu was very nice, food very well presented. The service was excellent- waitress did well to be chatty while wearing a mask. Felt very safe re Covid measures. Good for parking.
