The blue marlin was not fresh! And the meatballs and spaghetti for kids was so not worthy! We will go elsewhere for good food!

Good value of money if you don't order the drinks. You can easily get away with PHP1,500 to PHP 2,000 per person just on food alone, and you get the beautiful setting.

Love the view of the restaurant. Although the staff is not as friendly as Tea of Spring, but they are nice. I love the seafood there. It was very tasty. They also have live music while we are dining.

We went with friends and partied each night at Cowrie Cove. There is a DJ who loves to play whatever you ask, great happy friendly bar staff and far enough away from the rooms you can stay there until the early hours!

At Cowrie Cove, guests can savor fresh seafood under a canopy of stars and with the sound of ocean waves directly below the alfresco deck. The newly renovated Waves Bar is the perfect venue for guests to enjoy signature cocktails at sunset.
