Can't get a better scenic place to eat.

You can take a Casco Bay Lines ferry but it's best to take your own boat to "Cocktail Cove" and then go ashore. The food is worth the trip.

We always make sure to schedule at least one and usually more visits each year and have done so for at least the last five years. We have even hosted a college mini-reunion there. Unless you are one of the fortunate few who live on the island or anchor your yacht in the cove, getting there requires a ferry trip... More

We landed on the island and didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprise it was very quiet and peaceful , we ate a the general store for lunch and the owner Amy was very nice to deal with. It's a great place to go in the summer.

We enjoyed a tasty summertime dinner with college friends, on a perfect August evening at Diamond Cove. The ambiance and aesthetics are perfect, service was terrific, and good menu offering the usual seacoast suspects. Plenty of food, super fresh oysters, good wine list (not unique), peaceful an inviting environment for talking and dining. The ferry ride from Portland is brief,... More

This is my second year staying at Diamond Cove on Great Diamond Island in Casco Bay, off Portland Maine. This location is an old military base that has been renovated. Most of the homes are built around a parade ground with a few near the cove. There are other newer home that have built since. The first year we rented... More

There are few places left that haven't succumbed to the ever encroaching uniformity and blandness of suburbanization and chain stores but Portland and Diamond Cove in particular have managed to remain something utterly one of a kind and special. Diamond Cove will appeal for it's rich history and it's physical beauty. Nearly half the island is uninhabited forest and the... More
