We had been told much about The Cove restaurant and it lived up to our expectations, seated in the far corner of the restaurant to help celebrate our wedding enniversary, everyone made us feel welcomed. The 'prawn cocktail' had the best prawns eaten on the Island , juicy, tasty and full of rich flavour. The chicken dish of different sorts... More

The ambiance and meal was rememberable. Tentative staff and great choice menu. What you would call classy and well executed. The back lit menus were a romantic touch. Must go there again on my next special ocassion.

The Cove restaurants is located in the Blue Waters resort. You have to get a lift on a buggy from reception to get to the restaurant due to its location.

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.

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!

Thank DrNBC
