We happened on this venue by chance as its only 2 minutes from the hotel. You can tell when they care about the food they serve!! If we were to return to Eindhoven we would certainly go here

Loved visiting Cooks! The place is really great, calm and relaxing, the people working are very nice and the food is really tasty. Had the "cod with prawn cracker coating" & "potatoe wedges, garlic, rosemary" and tasted really nice! Probably will return some day.

A quaint little place near to Catherina church. Bit expensive kind and it's a good place for fine dining. The place is small like any other place in Netherlands and has only few seatings and can be crowded especially on weekends. Nice food and 'Lekker'....More

We had dinner during Glow, so many people in Eindhoven looking for food. Enough choice for our company (meat, fish, vegetarian) and we nearly forgot the time. Tasty beers and wine.

In the midst of the city centre of Eindhoven, near the Catharina church, is the cosy Eetcafe Cooks. Ever since 1999, we serve a mix of homemade tapas and a la carte dishes. A must go-to for meat and fish lovers and ample room for vegetarians. In addition, there is enough choice to share. Take a look on our website and contact us in case you have any questions or you would like to reserve a table. See you soon!
