Exceptional!

Cook was recommended by a local.....and what a good find it was. I would go back again for sure. It is a small restaurant so get there early or make a reservation. One of the best meals we had in St Helena.

Small intimate restaurant in the town of St. Helena. Everything we ate tasted great. Risotto was amazing and the chocolate cake was wonderful. Great service.

heard good things but was completely underwhelmed by our lunch here. Salads were ok but nothing to write home about. Pasta was fresh but sauces were unimaginative. Prices high and portions small. Overall a forgettable experience compared to other eateries in St. Helena.

Had lunch at Cook, and the dishes were fantastic. My wife had the eggplant, and it was amazing, and I had a dish with sausage (forgot the name) and it had a definite kick to it, and was wonderful. The waiter spent time explaining the dishes and was extremely pleasant and helpful. The presentation, taste, and cost were all superb!

4 different dishes. 4 happy people. Food was excellent -especially the pasta. The mussel appetizer was amazing. Tight quarters but comfy. Would definitely recommend.

Cook is a must when visiting St. Helena. The small restaurant gives it a very personal touch. The wait staff are very attentive and the pasta is amazing!

Recommended by locals for lunch and were they spot on. Terrific menu; great food; wonderful service. A couple sitting next to us were also raving about the food. Will certainly be back on a future trip. This restaurant might be more of a locals' place but visitors should definitely put it on their list of places to try.

It was a great dinner, muscles, calamari, trout, and the Brussels Sprouts were outstanding. A great restaurant in Saint Helena.
