Nice Local Spot

My wife and I visited Cook on our first night in St. Helena a few were very pleased with the experience. We had made reservations, but got there early and the staff was happy to seat us. The fried calamari app was cooked perfectly. My wife had the cavatelli all arrabbiata. The sausage was spicy and... read more

Strolling through town and we stumbled into this little spot...The tavern is on the right and the restaurant is on the left. The host/owner could not have been nicer. Our concierge made reservations for the following night and we enjoyed a fabulous Italian meal. We had a basic Caesar salad which was lightly dressed (the way i like it), an... More

Petrale Sole was absolutely excellent! Can't remember the name of the vegetable, looked like celery, slight taste of pickle, combined with the other spices, fish and veggies, it was scrumptious! Bob ordered the Papperdelle, short ribs were tender and tasty. Sweet potato soup was wonderful. Chopped salad was great, a generous serving and Bob said the Caesar was one of... More

On the recommendation of an Ontario Canada wine representative, my wife and I and another couple enjoyed an excellent dinner in this small and wholly unpretentious converted old diner. The service was attentive but unobtrusive, and the cost very modest. Try it: you will not be disappointed.

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.
