Wonderful experience

Excellent food. Excellent service. First visit today. Won't be my last. Sticky toffee pudding is the best I've had.

A special retreat for the extra special occasion. You get what you pay for and the food was impeccably presentation and tasted very yummy. Location great and kids enjoyed the menu too. Bit pricey, but you'd expect that from the good quality you receive. Well worth a visit for a special occasion or indeed if you just want a treat.... More

Came here for lunch one weekday. Haven't been for a while, but as a local was delighted that the food was superb! Very delicious and tasty and the service was great too! Well done The Cove - this place matches top London restaurant standards with stunning scenery. Highly recommend :):):)

Only stopped for a drink but sat in the conservatory and enjoyed the view, chilled Cornish style. Recommend the hot chocolate- just try it, that is all!! :-) Service was very good too.

Visiting for the first time for several years, I was delighted to find the style and food has been upgraded - indeed, it was difficult to make a choice from the delicious menu. However, the food was superb in every way - quality, quantity and imaginative combinations plus excellent service. Small negatives are that the choice of wines is limited... More

My husband and I went to the Cove for Easter dinner. Knowing that the bigger meal on Easter is generally lunch, but wanting to do some sight seeing, I decided to book at the Cove based on the strength of their reviews and due to the fact that they were open! Service seemed a bit slow at first, we had... More

A little pricey but well worth it. Good quality service and excellent food. Overlooks the sea and beach at Maenporth. A lovely setting.

This is an amazing restaurant. I have been here many times over the years (including my sister in laws wedding reception) and have never been disappointed. The food is superb and they always use seasonal fresh ingredients, including the locally caught fish. To top off the fabulous food, the views are simply to die for. Maenporth beach is opposite and...

If you are going to do something why not do it well! The Cove is excellent on all levels: food, location, ambience and service. We have just enjoyed our first visit to The Cove for a long relaxing lunch with friends. The Cove is a wonderful mix of fine dining and a truly relaxing unpretentious haven of tranquility hidden away... More
