Nice Buffet Breakfast

Took several breakfasts here during a conference stay. Many foods, high quality - good mix of healthy choices with holiday indulgences. Only drawback is can get very busy if you're there at the wrong time - you might wait a while for your eggs. Very impressed with food though - and very good service

Dropped by for dinner, opted for the buffet. Best decision ever. Everything was of superior quality. The grilled seafood was fresh and had natural sweetness to them. Desserts were exquisite. Main courses were of good quality. One of the best buffets I've had in a while. Well done!

They do buffet for breakfast and ala carte for lunch and dinner with themed nightly buffets also available at night time. I preferred the ala carte options to the buffet , especially as... More

Many options on the menu from Thai to Indian to European, there is something for everyone. The Cove does offer 2 options, one a la carte, and one all you can eat buffet. Make sure to select the best choice for you.

The Cove restaurant is in the Centara Grand Beach Resort Hotel. They have themed buffets in the evening. The night we visited was Turf and Surf. Both the salad bar and desserts have good spread. Although the grilled meat were imported, the barbecued meat were disappointingly tough. The buffet prices were reasonable, with live entertainment. Service were good though. Ray,... More

We stayed at Centara Grand Beach Resort for Spring Break and opted for breakfast included. This was perfect - kids could sleep in and dine around 1000. The breakfast options were plentiful - amazing fruit, salads, lots of bread choices and the best croissants we've had in Asia. Many egg preparations, crepes and pancakes, Pho soup, potatoes and meats, anything... More
