We've been going to the cove regularly over the last 5 years and have never been disappointed. We've dined in and ordered take away and the service has been reasonably good and the food cooked hot and fresh. Like any other Chinese restaurant, the prices are consistent and don't vary from competitors. The restaurant is situated overlooking Greys Bay and... More

The restaurant is situated next to the water & you can sit under the stars which is beautiful. Thai & Chinese food is on the menu. Food is a little bit expensive $20-$23 per main & $4 per rice serve. But it is delicious. Friendly & fast service, highly recommend! Kids meals available also.

Had an impromptu lunch here with a friend. The starter calamari salt and pepper was delicious and generous and not too much seasoning. Our salads were super fresh and generous. Very reasonably priced. My friends chicken salad had a little too much dressing. My beef salad was perfect. Lovely service. Super clean. Perfect views over the beaches. You go here... More

Food was medium ok, the view is very good. We ate green curry chicken and honey prawns. Chicken has a weird taste. Prawns were too greasy.

We ate here twice while in Horseshoe Bay and it was delightful. Coconut honey prawns were to die for and so was their coconut rice. My husband had the beef tossed with vegetables and the meat was so tender he loved it. A popular place so make reservations if you want to be sure to have a table waiting for... More

We ordered takeaway, were surprised to still find somewhere that was open as it was around 8:15. The food was amazing and we enjoyed every bite. Wished it wasn't dark so we could explore the location a little more, looks like it would be an excellent location.

Wanted to try this restaurant it was hidden at the back of The Cove overlooking grays bay. Open to general public luckily as we weren't staying in house we were @ the resort next door. The view was awesome, surreal, looking out @ the water eating dinner is heaven. Ordered the Long & Short Soup which was plentiful but very... More
