Found cooked by chance and had a great experience there on their outside patio. Our waitress Trish described the special Kinklip in such a mouthwatering way that she not only convinced the non fish eater, but i am now also on the lookout for more...of it. The service was attentive and friendly and the food just stunning. thanks!More

Amazing location in the heart of the Watershed where you can enjoy scrumptious food and fabulous service whilst watching people pass through the main route through the Watershed. Seems to be popular with both locals and tourists. We were in Capetown for 5 days and...had a breakfast, lunch and many coffee and cakes in this wonderful place. I love it. Too many good things on the menu to recommend just one!!!More

Hi Davina. Thanks for taking the time to review us - much appreciated. We love being in The Watershed because the hustle and bustle and VIBE is really great! Happy to hear that you got to try an array of items off of our menu!

This is a super place with a really great selection of delicious food. We stayed in Cape Town for two weeks and probably visited about 7 times. It's great for a late breakfast, lunch or coffee any time of day. Linah and Trish looked after...us several times and were especially kind to our toddler. It's very convenient for the waterfront, aquarium, shops and other attractions. Every time we went there we saw a range of people really enjoying themselves and enjoying delicious food and drink.More

A real gem hidden in a market setting . Stumbled upon this place by accident and been back again and again. Cakes change regularly but all show a real flair and are REAL ..... no premixes, no imitation cream. You have got to try it!

The lamb burger is one of the best things I've ever eaten. I always go back for it, but Im slowly trying out the rest of the menu. I honestly havent had one bad thing at Cooked. Everything is amazing. The Beef Latke stack is...also very good. The staff is always super friendly and helpfulMore

Location is perfect when visiting the docks. Located in the “Workshop”. Lovely environment with the busker(singing). Service was amazing. The staff are always smiling. Making sure we never went without a drink. One of the severs, Megan, went out of her way to even ask...the Buskers name and information for us. The food was delicious, well presented, many fresh and healthy choices and great value for money!More
