Stunning food & fantastic wine. Whatever you choose you couldn't go wrong. Try all three courses if you can fit them in. Each was fantastic. Highly Reccomended.

Visited last Saturday and yet again the food and service was incredible. The staff are all very knowledgeable about the food being served and are incredible attentive without being in your face. I can't recommend two cooks highly enough. We definitely be back.

This was recommended by our Concierge at the K Club. Such a wonderful place for fresh food. We met the 2 cooks...enjoyed our time dining with them. Small establishment so reservations necessary.

Seasonal Modern Cuisine Our Menus at TwoCooks are seasonal and therefore change frequently. The menu evolves according to what ingredients are available and we also take inspiration from various other cuisines, cultures and our travels which are always food orientated. We source the best quality ingredients through local farmers who grow our herbs or special vegetables and top end suppliers in both Dublin Smithfield market and Rungis International Market in Paris. When we plan and design the menu a huge emphasis is placed on vegetables and textures of ingredients in most cases meat plays second fiddle. We use top quality ingredients local and organic as much as possible. Fermentation and preservation is always present on our menus as this plays a huge role in that perfect Umami or that weird and wonderful flavour one might not be familiar with but its that knowledge, skill and long hours of work which makes TwoCooks Menu special and interesting.
