Amazing food and fabulous service!

By far the best place to eat out in the area. We have visited The Cove several times and the food and service are second to none. Beautiful setting, great food, friendly and helpful staff, what more could you ask for.

Came here with family and friends during the week for coffee and wow what a wonderful restaurant, we were in the area, didn't book or make a reservation yet the service was fantastic. The waitress Hayley who greated us was smiley and bubbly and nothing was too much trouble. I'd highly recommended! I'll definitely be back to try the food!

I have eaten at The Cove five times now which does not sound a lot but when you live in North Yorkshire its hard to get there more often. I found this restaurant while looking for a venue for a meal after my registry office wedding. It was the first on my list because the website made it look amazing.... More

Just returned from a business dinner with 22 of us at The Cove. Oh my god, the best food experience in many years! With a lot of us there, we were welcomed by an amazingly helpful waitress and lots of Rhubarb G&Ts!!! The food was out of this world, every plate to every person was hot and just perfect! The...

I have to say... I'm very hard to please, but I was extremely impressed from the minute we arrived to when we had to leave. I dined here on Sunday lunchtime with my partner and our friend. We were warmly greeted and were shown to the sofas at the front for an aperitif and to peruse the menus. We were... More

The Cove is simply one of the best restaurants we've been to for a while, if not ever. The setting in the little cove at Maenporth right by the beach is stunning & despite visiting on a particularly wet & windy night, there is no doubt the view is world class & many a happy hour could be spent sat...

Unfortunately the weather this evening was awful so we did not see The Cove at its best. Very friendly staff. There is a set price menu or small a la carte choices. Portion sizes ok but very tasty and beautifully presented. Nice wine list. We were able to move to more relaxed chairs for coffee and liqueurs. Felt the prices... More
