Booked a table for two based on the reviews here and was not disappointed one bit. Our table was booked for 8.15 and arrived about 7.30 to enjoy a couple of cocktails on the terrace and the stunning views. We were taken to our table inside and quickly realised we should have asked for a table in the glass room... More

My wife was greeted by a waiter with a false sounding French accent, looking down his nose informing her that they were... More

We chose The Cove based upon its popularity on Trip Advisor, and it did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly and personable, and made us feel very welcome on arrival - they even provided blankets for us when we sat on the outside terrace for pre- and after-dinner drinks. Food was delicious - I can recommend the crab chowder... More
