I often buy lunch here as they do great veggie wraps. However I visited today and the shop has permanently closed. I was only there a couple of days ago and there were no signs up saying this was imminent. A real shame as there are few independent coffee/lunch places in Richmond. My only comment would be that last time... More

Food was OK, but the table service was poor. Had to ask for a cup of tea and a toasted panini twice (each) before they arrived.

Janet G, Owner at Cook & Garcia, responded to this review

I am so sorry about the service you received from us the other day. I do remember the specific incident with your tea and panini and at the time we did speak with the member of staff serving you (who is no longer with us). You should certainly expect a better standard from us - please accept our apologies. More

This place is a gem. Friendly staff. A selection of wraps, sandwiches and salads made daily or you can customise to your own taste.Sounds simple but the difference is the stunning quality of ingredients. The roast meats are lovingly made and it is very good value for money to boot.Wide selection of add on ingredients to handle any taste/diet.

During a recent stay in Richmond, I had several very enjoyable lunches with friends at Cook and Garcia A very pleasant little restaurant, with very good food and varied menu. On a couple of occasions, I also had an afternoon cup of tea and a slice of cake, which was really delicious. I found the staff very friendly and helpful

I posted a review a while back singing this places praises, but unfortunately it's gone down hill. There seems to have been a lot of staff turnover lately and all the really good staff have gone the replacements are not great, they constantly make mistakes with the orders, and just seem generally confused. Hopefully they will learn the ropes and... More

Friendly efficient staff, good service and really nice food. Wraps and salads in the Summer are great and in the colder winter months I love the soups and sometimes some pie and mash. Always well staffed, it has to be for the amount of customers they have. Also the breakfast wraps are great, and the toast station. It's all good.
