Terrible service, terrible food. I was overcharged so please check you bill if having a meal in this restaurant. The food itself was very mediocre, and way over priced. No senior personal approached me after the waitress admitted that they had charged me for two...More

We visited for early dinner on a Saturday night and we really enjoyed it. Make a reservation to avoid disappointment and ask for a window seat as they have the best view. We had the crab and lamb sausage for starters which were very nice....More

I love this restaurant, it’s great value. I particularly love the green beans and cauliflower. Only thing is the menu is getting a little boring. Slight changes but I would love to see an overhaul.

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.
