We had booked The Cove Restaurant for our 10th Wedding Anniversary as we were staying in a local B&B. When we arrived we were told due to staff sickness the restaurant would not be opening that evening. Were told a message had been left on our answerphone - as we were away we obviously hadn't received that. Ended up eating... More

Six of us arrived on spec for a mid week lunch whilst travelling the coast road. The Cove had a very small menu which is fine as it gives the chance to execute it well. On the menu only two sandwiches - club or crab, two salads - crab or beetroot & goats cheese and a couple of other items.... More

Popped in for a late lunch. Fantastic location with great views from the terrace. Service was fantastic and the food was great and well worth that little extra cost. Definitely well worth a visit and will call in again when next in the area.

Beautiful location, contemporary, fresh venue. The food was good - the cod was delicious. Very disappointing wine list - only one bottle of most wines and there were 8 of us. The service was pretty slow and it was an expensive evening. We preferred eating at home!

A group of 8 of us went to The Cove last Tuesday - we had pre-booked. Fabulous location and a good menu - interesting food. All let down by the terrible service - slow and unfriendly. The restaurant was very quite there were only two other couples dining the night we were there. We waited almost an hour for the... More

We have been advocates of the Cove for the last 3years or so and always try to get in for lunch or dinner when we are in Cornwall. We were there with friends in Nov 2011 and the food and service with Pablo at the helm were excellent as normal. However we have just been tonight and we were disappointed.... More

A hidden gem. Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous location, friendly rabbits. We went for a lunchtime drink and ended up staying for lunch and dessert. The vista was superb and the atmosphere incredibly laid back as we supped our drinks overlooking the pool. After lunch we strolled down through the gardens and down to the cove and hung out there...

We had lunch there on Christmas Day with a six course menu with different choices for starters, main course (incl. the traditional turkey) and dessert which, in our opinion, suited almost every taste. It was necessary to book and pay in advance, so we found it strange that upon arrival our reservation could not be found and it took the... More
