A real treat

Fantastic location, great food and attentive staff who were efficient without being overbearing. All the meals for our party were well presented and exceptionally fresh, especially the fish.

This was the second time I've been to the Cove, following up a recommendation. The food was fabulous, and the location perfect, with great views. Staff struck a perfect balance of being friendly and relaxed, rather than too stuffy and formal.

We had a superb Sunday roast here with a large group European (German/Swiss/Swedish) friends, one of which said the experience made him want to re-think his opinion of English food. Service was friendly and helpful and the view is superb. It was just a shame about the English weather that day.

We visited on a week night, this was our second visit having visited the previous year. I had the fillet steak which I ordered rare and found to be cooked to perfection, the accompanying potatoes were also beautifully cooked and seasoned. I had the chocolate slice desert which was very tasty, I only wish there had been more of it.... More

Delicious food and attentive service mark this place out as special. Our annual return has done nothing to dampen our enthusiasm.

Just enjoyed the best meal we have eaten out in ages. We chose the fixed price three courses for £24. We both ate different choices and thoroughly enjoyed each course. Could not fault the food, service, location and atmosphere - excellent and would love to return on our next visit to Cornwall. Highly recommend a visit.

This was an unexpected find while we were on holiday and were recommended to go by our B&B landlady. I thought it was great. Maybe a bit too formal for a bar on a beach but the food was really good, quite sophisticated sea food, beautifully presented. I would definitely go again when next we are in the area.

The food was good but slightly disappointed by staff trying to explain the reason they charge chips more than baby potatoes.

The surroundings and views are splendid and the sun is sheltered so it isn't unpleasant However, the food looks beautiful but if you don't eat fish there is little choice. The meal deal that we went for was good value but, as I don't eat any type of fish I was restricted to a narrow selection and then had to... More

Have been to this restaurant last year with family and was really impressed so wanted to go there for a couples evening......without any kids! The staff were really friendly and attentive, and made us feel very welcome right from the start. The staff never rushed us and made my partner feel very special when she just wanted "fish fingers with... More
