Great location by the River Sal

We only ate at Joe's River Cove once on our recent trip though have eaten there several times in the past. On this occasion I had the stuffed mushrooms with a mixed salad. The six plump mushrooms stuffed with cheese were delicious and very filling - they are meant to be a starter but unless you... read more

We took a taxi to Joe's Riverside Cove. The atmosphere was fabulous and the setting great - right beside the river. Lovely good and at a good price. However, the restaurant was holding two "family celebrations" which took over the evening with lots of games and other activities on the dance floor - and to be honest it spoilt the... More

We have met Jo, the owner , most times we visit which is at least once each year.he always welcomes us as though he can remember us but probably can't. The staff are lovely but not all speak good English so it's sometimes difficult to give your food and drink order to the waiter.Dining is outside under the stars.Food is... More

You can always guarantee that you will have a super night out at Joe's River Cove! It is usually a very busy restaurant especially on evenings when there is also music. We were really impressed with the great standard of entertainment on the Thursday and also Sunday evenings we visited. The service is always excellent even when there is also... More

This place has got an amazing ambience just near the river side. The sea food is good. Must try their Stuffed mushrooms dish which they are known for.Overall this is a great place. The owner too is a very nice person who personally comes and asks for feedback.

This restaurant is always a winner for us. The food, the staff, the position and atmosphere are lovely although it is a taxi ride if you haven't got your own transport. Authentic Indian and Chinese dishes along with continental dishes. There is always fresh fish and seafood. On the nights that there is entertaining it is advisable to book. The... More

A bit out of Cavelossim but well worth the taxi. Think we were 250rps for the return journey. Taxi driver gave us his card and he came back for us when we called. Food was fab, a bit spicier than in other places visited. When we arrived we were the only tourists, but the place filled up with big tables... More

Told it was not far so we walked. Big mistake!!! We walked from the main street in Cavelossim along piych black lanes with no-one to ask the way. Took a taxi back, ride took 20 mins, hence long walk. So take a taxi. The fact that lots of local families eat here is a good recommendation in itself.
