The service is very good and one feels quite cosseted when sat at the beautiful tables with their starched white cloths , elegant china and cutlery.

As it is often difficult to get a seat for high tea in the IN spots on a weekend when they do not accept reservations we ended up in this small COVA café in the Pacific place Mall. It was no second choice at the end as we spent a lovely afternoon with good service, very nice food and nice... More

I visited Cova Cafe at HK Ocean Terminal on 30 Sept 14 at about 5.45 pm for refreshment while traveling on business. It was a posh cafe. But the service staff has poor body language and attitude. The waitress, a plump girl with glasses, just stood there poker face and after taking my order just snatch the menu off the... More

I find the food quite average. I went there on a weekend and they had a live band singing which was great! I love live bands. And I think if I opted for the buffet, it will be a good meal instead of going just ala carte. And they serve great coffee by the way and nice looking cakes to... More

I had a quick breakfast here before leaving for the airport. Had the chicken and spinach sandwich and coffee. For a café, sandwiches were nice and coffee was good. Location is great, place is clean, ambience is absent, given its actually a big kiosk in the middle of the mall. Good place for tired feet and quick service and food.

If you want to have an italian espresso in hong kong, this is the place to go. I wouldn't call it a restaurant, but if you want to have some quick lunch it's ok to go. Beware it is a very higi standard cafè so don't expect to pay little money

We love its afternoon tea. We visit Cova whenever we are in Hong Kong. The buffet afternoon tea offers many choices: cake, cookie, pizza, sandwiches, cold cuts, fruit, and of course, tea and coffee. All are delicious, better than many other cafes in the world. Cova is a famous Italian restaurant established hundreds of years ago. The only problem is... More

good snacks and pastries - but perhaps they dont want you to linger especially when you are there for some coffee and pastries - the chairs are so uncomfortable, i guess having a meal there is different because the chairs looked really comfortable. What a contrast!
