Delicious food, nicely served, beautiful compositions of colours and flavours, a few vegetarian dishes. You can go for either dinner main course or choose a few smaller dishes for bigger variety. Regular price level, dinner with a glass of wine 18-30 EUR. Nice service and terrace, love that place. I'm there every week.

All the usual mediocre offerings. Boring sandwiches, egg dishes, and a few strange salad offerings. These places are a dime a dozen in the Netherlands and they are always somewhat disappointing.

Great staff and quality food jade this place a stand out for us. Our table was delayed so we were offered a free drink at the bar...

We arrived here without a booking so only had a table until the next booking arrived - plenty of time for us. The starter of bread and tapenade was delicious (enough for 2), and main courses were well presented and tasty. We would definitely return here.

When you plan a casual diner in a cafe type restaurant you adapt expectations. At Cooks we were blown away of the food quality and the good service. A mistake with the starter was more than compensated and the main course was excellent. ESP what they had done with the vegetables. Enjoyed it obviously and will be back for another... More

My girlfriend always prefers to go to this restaurant when we are in Eindhoven for shopping, so we went to Cooks for some food again. I had not been here in a while but the dishes they served used to be good, but they now seemed to have upgraded them to something more culinary, so they not only taste great... More

We ate here recently when passing through Eindhoven. Not only were the staff extremely friendly, but the food was outstanding. We usually expect very little when we travel, hoping only to find a decent restaurant, but Cooks excelled on all fronts. If you are in Eindhoven, you simply must eat here.

The waitress does not speak very good English and the day specials are written only in Dutch so I missed the asparagus dishes I was looking for. The dinner was pleasant but not too quick, even if the restaurant was almost empty, and not exactly cheap. Not sure I will get back there.

We visit Cooks on regular basis -usually on Fridays- because of the relaxed atmosphere and the fine tapas dishes at a reasonable price. The restaurant offers a-la-card dishes and tapa's. In all categories there are fish, meat and veggie options We usually go for a 16 euro tapa menu consisting of 4 raciones of tapa-dishes that can be selected out... More

Visited this great restaurant twice on a recent trip, once to just drink wine, enjoy the sun and read which was lovely and the second to have lunch. I still dream about the salad with warm goat cheese, grilled vegetables, mixed nuts and honey. So good. Staff is kind to us English only speakers.
