The Cove Restaurant offers outstanding food and a great view over the adjacent beach and sea. The service and ambiance are very good. The restaurant is relatively expensive - but you get what you pay for. We have eaten there on several occasions and always enjoyed it.

Two of us had dinner at the end of a great week in Cornwall and were certainly not disappointed. This was modern eclectic cooking with the odd imaginative element characterised by a dessert that was ostensibly a fruit crumble but which made clever use of traditional ingredients and topped it off with calvados ice-cream. As other comments suggest the service... More

Each summer we spend a week beside the beautiful Helford River and discovered The Cove a few years ago and dining here at least once during our stay is a very important part of our enjoyment of this wonderful area. The Cove is always very good and this year was no exception. We love the weloming and attentive staff, the... More

We use the Cove quite often, it's superb value at a great standard. Aside from the simple fact it has fantastic views from the terrace, the service is faultless and the food never disappoints. Our last visit was no exception, fantastic olives to start, mains were tasty and beautifully presented. The star however was a homemade raspberry Arctic role with... More

If you want somewhere nice for a special location, this is the place. We started the night with mojitos followed by vanilla scallops and a retro prawn cocktail. The mains were barramundi and pork loin which were perfectly cooked. Desserts were a sticky prune pudding and rhubarb creme brûlée . Well worth a visit!

I had not been to this restaurant before, but my brother and partner have on a few occasions and came highly recommended. I wasn't disappointed as the setting was wonderful, with the views over the bay spectacular. The greeting was warm, and we sat in the front to have a bottle of Prosecco before the meal. The food was very... More

Enjoyed a really good lunch on the terrace looking out to sea. Good bread and olives followed by slow braised belly pork and a carafe of perfectly chilled Italian White wine. Pleasant waiting staff completed the experience. Will visit again....

My Husband and I choose the Cove as the setting for our family meal to celebrate our wedding. We met with Annette who was incredibly helpful and friendly and able to accommodate severe nut allergies and our preferences for plain, simple food. The setting is absolutely fantastic and the restaurant has very good for access (including wheelchair access). There is... More

For the first time, I went to The Cove and was a bit underwhelmed. I've been here any number of times in the last ten years and this is my fourth review. The Cove is my go-to restaurant for top quality nosh in amazing surroundings. My family love it, it impresses people who are visiting, and although it's pricey it's... More

We had lunch at the Cove last week and it exceeded our expectations. We were able to sit outside enjoying the view, while we made our choice from the menu, and then we sat in the glass part of the restaurant so therefore continuing to enjoy the view. The food was excellent and beautifully presented and the waiting staff were... More
