Try the Baramundi!

Everything was really good, very authentic and fresh. We especially liked the barramundi with black bean sauce.

I love this place, this is a regular spot for both me and my family to visit whenever I am home. The service is always lovely and I have always had wonderful meals! The view is just spectacular too. I highly recommend the mongolian dish!

During our recent visit to Bowen we discovered The Cove after a recommendation from a local friend. We weren't disappointed, the food was delicious and staff very attentive. We enjoyed our experience so much we returned the next night. Beautiful location and view, would love to return for lunch one day!

This place is one of the best in Bowen. I come here every chance we get to experience the great views and an awesome meal. We both had seafood which was impeccably cooked. When we go there, there aren’t usually too many people there which is sometimes a good thing.

Bowen has many hidden treasures and the cove is definitely up there. We went for lunch and had seafood which was perfectly cooked. The restaurant has beautiful views of horseshoe bay which helped to provide a relaxing atmosphere. Prices where good as well as service.

My wife and I visited this restaurant every chance we had while we worked in Bowen. The food is excellent, the service friendly and fast, and the location is awesome with views through palm trees and over the ocean.

A great Chinese Restaurant with great food and great service, have never had a bad visit and they also do take-away. Lovely outlook over the ocean to the north and you can either sit inside or out under the verandah. The only downside in the summer, it can be a bit windy in which case they may shut the French...

The meals here are worth the price and you get to watch the sun go down over the ocean and hills. Beautiful. I love the salt and pepper eggplant!
