Best Breakfast I have had in a long time Salmon Latkes, with a beautiful free range poached egg done to perfection. I could see it was free range by the colour of the yolk no lemon yellow lovely light orange. I will be back.

The place has a fantastic vibe, food is delicious, the staff very friendly and attentive. This place is very central in Town, right next to the Aquarium. We will definitely be visiting Cooked again when we come back.

Overpriced and bad service Ordered a toasted cheese sandwich just fill the gap and that’s exactly what I got. A very plain, 2 slices of white bread toasted with cheese. No sides, no garnish, no salad. R75. Absolutely rip off. Very disappointed.More

Outstanding service and outsanding food. Children well looked after with a huge chicken schnitzel and fantastic milk shakes. Adults washed down a very good chicken souvlaki with a nice glass of white wine. The restaurant was located in the market so a good place to...wander around afterwards.More

My first time at COOKED, and it was simply amazing! Beautiful middle eastern cuisine, including falafels, hummus, chicken skewers and even amazing smoked salmon. I must also thank our waiter Malvern for his friendly, attentive and efficient service. Last, but not least, it was incredible...to see my favourite server from my home city, Lejana, as a new addition to their staff compliment! Thank you for the delicious food, and great service, COOKED.More
