TwoCooks at The Pot

Nicola and Josef are two passionate chefs who have accumulated great knowledge and experience in the food industry worldwide over the past 25 years They returned to Ireland permanently in 2010 to start a family and to realise their dream project that they had planned together since they met,  to open their own small restaurant in Ireland.


TwoCooks Restaurant was founded in 2016 in Sallins, Co. Kildare and it has become a local spot for guests to celebrate their special occasions, big and small. The business has gone from strength to strength. The food journey over the first five years has been a successful adventure.


In 2020 they opened 2C Cafe Sallins and in 2021 another 2C Cafe in Kill, Co. Kildare.


This year, they had the opportunity to start a new venture in Carne, Co. Wexford. The place they would often go to enjoy sunny days with their kids has now become their newest undertaking.

The Lobster Pot Restaurant has been the place of many happy moments, delicious meals and family memories for over 30 years. Now, Nicola and Josef look forward to continuing this story in a new chapter, bringing the relaxed dining experience from their award-winning restaurant TwoCooks, to this iconic establishment, lovingly known locally as The Pot.


The guests who are planning to visit the new Lobster Pot can expect the best of local seafood and quality, seasonal ingredients and a great selection of drinks served in a family-friendly environment.

“Josef and I have loved eating in The Lobster Pot throughout the years and we’re so proud to now take over the ownership and bring our passion for food and a little of what we do in TwoCooks to The Pot.”


Josef Zammit

“Carne is a special place for us, with a special energy so when I stood in the kitchen in the Lobster Pot I knew I wanted to do something special here. The past two years have taught us how to pivot and adapt at short notice, we have enjoyed the space and time to try new projects and we have lots of exciting plans to change things up as much as possible."
