Husband and I popped into Sea Cow recently and had dinner upstairs, looking out over a sparkling Hauraki Gulf.
The service was friendly; attentive without being overbearing. However, the food was the big star. The kokoda starter was delicious; as was the s & p squid. We loved our fish dinners - light batter, lovely chips....delicious. We also had the pineapple pie, which was a lovely end to the meal. So often at popular waterfront spots (like Mission Bay), the food takes a backseat to the food; the establishment relying on ''chancers'' rather than repeat customers.
This isn't the case at Sea Cow, I'm happy to report and we will be back!

We went for dinner last week, it is a small byo cafe and we were made feel very welcome. The salt and Pepper squid entree was just devine a generous portion and it was lightly battered and cooked to perfection melt in the mouth. (that was the highlight dish) Our mains were well cooked I had swordfish my partner had blue cod, both meals were well cooked and very tasty.

The team at Sea Cow are very welcoming and the seafood menu extensive. We have now been three times since they opened and each meal has been superb. The salt and pepper squid is fantastic and the grilled fish mains are outstanding. Can also reccomend the fresh mussells.Take a bottle of your favourite wine and be prepared to be impressed. Its all about beautifully cooked fresh seafood.
