“Reasonable take away”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

We were staying in one of the apartments in the block that this restaurant resides in. Ordered a large take away order. 20 mins to cook, easy enough to collect. Fairly average food to be honest, not bad but not a knock out either. Lovely location with a great outlook if you were dining in. Place seemed pretty busy, always a good sign I guess. We didn't get the chance to go and dine in. They seem to offer a good lunch menu but were closed for lunch when we were there.

“Disappointing Thai”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

Got recommended to try this place during our overnight stay in Bowen and sadly we were disappointed. Hubby got satay chicken and the sauce was like water and I got cashew chicken and the chicken was not real pieces of chicken, it consisted of those processed thin strips of caterers meat. Coconut rice tasted like coconut flavouring was used as rice was yellow and steamed not like a true coconut rice. Gorgeous location but terrible food

“Great Service but So-So Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

We enjoyed the ambience of The Cove very much (get a table outside) and the service was excellent. The food however was average at best and somewhat overpriced. It is billed as an "international" restaurant but all of the dishes we tried were pretty much the same sort of stir-frys in the same overly sweet glutinous sauce. It was definitely more westernized Chinese than it was authentic Thai. We enjoyed the calamari entree the best.
