During our stay at Bay of Many Coves, we ate dinner at this charming restaurant. I had the Wagyu beef which was delicious. There was a very nice wine selection and the staff was extremely attentive and friendly.

Obviously a great view and lovely staff but unfortunately for the rating the menu choice / selection and food quality lets it's down. Table layout quite poky. Lower prices would seem prudent.

This is 5-star dining at its very best in a pure, natural environment that simply cannot be matched.

Watch the sun set across the bay, or the moon as it sails above the distant hills. On cooler nights, nestle in by the open fire with a glass of Marlborough's finest and a dining experience you will never forget.

As we wish to ensure that dining in the Foredeck will be a sophisticated and
romantic dining experience for you, we ask that young children not be in the
restaurant after 6pm.
