“Best place to go for a great sunset view on the river”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

This is a small family-run place between Melbourne Beach and Sebastian which sits on the Indian River, and can be hard to find unless you are specifically looking for it. Sits off highway A1A on the river, and the entire back of the restaurant is glass so offers great views of the river. Most beautiful sunset views I have enjoyed anywhere. This place has the best German/Austrian food in the area (we love the yagerschnitzel) but also offers steaks, chicken and seafood. If you have to wait for a table, get a glass of wine at the snack bar, take a seat outside by the river, or a stroll down the deck to the boathouse and savor the view. Service is also very friendly.

“Great German food on the Florida coast”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

The friends with whom we have been staying suggested this hidden gem for our last evening before heading home to Maryland. It was a perfect dining experience: fine German beers, beautiful view of the setting Sun, great schnitzels (lightly breaded and fried fish or meats), equally great vegetables (seasoned mash potatoes with plump snow peas and a salad with German touches) and two deserts we four shared, all for $121 before tip. We've had good meals on this trip, but the best was this evening with our friends at Cafe Coconut Grove. Go early because they do not accept reservations.

“Best German food in town, quaint dining room”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

The Cove always lives up to our expectations! Great food, service, and view of the river. The German beer on tap is always a treat, spaetzle (german dumplings) are incredible, and the Chicken Florida, Fish of the Day, and Pork dishes are the best in town.

“The best German food!”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

This is a classy restaurant with fabulous German food. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Brevard County, Florida. We are locals and this is one of the best places to eat. Great selection of dishes and wine!

“Excellent german food!”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

My husband and I went to dinner here and were pleasantly surprised. We loved the atmosphere, and the view of the water. The people who worked there were so friendly and just felt like I was visiting someone's home. They made us feel so welcomed and special. The food was delicious too! They actually give you free dessert with their dishes. The apple strudel was delicious! Definitely a restaurant to visit while you are in the area
