The top restaurant at Blue Waters. Great setting but some benefit of this lost due to only opening at night (currently). Good selection menu, staff more formal to fit in with restaurant style.

This is the most "up-market" of the Blue Waters restaurants with a menu of beautiful seafood as well as outstanding meat. If you are a fan of Lobster Thermidor, as am I, this is the setting in which to eat it (the photographs do not lie)

Enjoyed both dinner and lunch here and were treated to great live entertainment. The beach is nicely lit with Conch Shells, creating an inviting scene.

Expensive! Totally worth it. My red snapper was the best ever in my life Sadly, I can't remember my complete order. I should have posted sooner. Just go for yourself. You won't be disappointed

We loved eating here. The lobster was fantastic. Service was great. There were a few bugs out, but not too bad. We usually had the first booking of the evening, so we always got a table at the front and in the corner, which was perfect!

Take your phone so that you can illuminate the menu, it's very dark in The Cove. It had to close one evening because of thunder storms but they moved part of the menu to The Palm so that we didn't miss out.
