Food is always excellent and the staff very attentive and friendly, all with fantastic view of the sea. Predominantly fish on the menu with other dishes slightly different from the norm. This restaurant never fails to impress and would recommend it to our friends.

My Carpaccio of beef was one of the best I have had, certainly the best outside Italy. It was exquisite !!

We have eaten several times at The Cove and always find the food and service second to none. Sunday lunch this week was the best ever, perfectly cooked beef and friendly attentive service. One of the best restaurants in the area.

Mixed feelings as found the service to be a bit haphazard but the food made up for it. The 3 Hake specials with pancetta where delicious by all accounts and my cod, chorizo stew was lovely. Amazing location. An enjoyable meal but did take a long time between seated, getting drinks, ordering and getting bill in an almost empty restaurant... More
