Option to sit inside or out, lovely view of neighbouring apartments/pool and beach/trees. Food was authentic Thai/Chinese. Not many places to eat in town so this place is a blessing! Girls are friendly.

The Cove Restaurant is tucked away from the road which is good and bad, good for the diners bad for passing trade. Having found this hidden gem we enjoyed lunch and a wonderful view at a very reasonable price

Fantastic service with great cocktails a must for the sunset location. Salt and Pepper Eggplant Entree was magnificent and Plum Duck was so tasty. All serves are large so took container away. I would highly recommend this restaurant
