The Cove restaurant in Tenby is the place to be. It is the perfect location if you’re looking for a stylish place to eat with family or for a cosy afternoon catch-up with friends. It is also a classy bar for an evening drink out.

Inside, ambient lighting and beautiful, modern furnishings and decor create a chilled vibe. There is plenty of seating to suit everyone from couples to larger groups, as well as a window side sofa to snuggle up on. In the summer you can sip a drink, or sample delicious dishes from our menus, while you soak up the summer sunshine from our outdoor seating area.

    Had a meal at the cove whilst on holiday in Tenby: it was a lovely evening from start to finish. Fab cocktails , really good food and suck kind staff even when my nephew played up and started pushing the pushchair around the restaurant they kept smiling. Clearly love their jobs… it was obvious they were run off their feet so I hope they get more staff soon.

    Food was lukewarm served by waitresses with appalling attitudes. Very off putting when asking for sides you have to run after them to make sure they heard you. Desserts menu were hastily shouted at you across the room. Very poor would not recommend.

    Nice food, but with such a varied and good standard of other options, it was notable that small things let our visit down. Despite us booking over 6 weeks ago we were initially given a table where we were looking into an open kitchen stock room. No atmosphere in the back space where our table was located. The food choice and quality was good, but again little things let it down, such as no dressing on the salad. Service wise none offered and no condiments on the table.

    We were placed in probably what turned out to be the noisiest corner. The Fideua was full of mussels and prawns, however pasta and lack of sauce led to a tasteless disappointment. The Chicken burger was good. Service was good, but felt price was a little steep based on experience and quality of food. We probably will find a better place next time

    Food was ok. Service was ok. When main meal was finished we were asked if there was anything else we wanted so we asked for desserts but were just offered chocolate torte, cheesecake or ice cream (verbal, no menu) Not a great selection so we declined and got the bill

    Disappointing visit following a good experience last year. Very poor menu choice for a member of the party with gluten intolerance. Staff not helpful or friendly had to keep asking for attention. No bowl given to place discarded mussel shells (despite asking) Have had a previous good experience so hopefully a one off blip

    Fantastic meal and cocktails. Staff very friendly. Meal and drinks came out quickly. Not the cheapest place but then again it's not a cheap pub you get quality and quantity at the same time. Definitely recommend for families, groups and couples.

    Was having a lovely time until a group of 4 were added to a group of 2 that were already intoxicated right behind us. The language and noise they made was ridiculous, they were drinking shot after shot and not once were they told to keep noise down. Staff and food was amazing as always, next time we visit Tenby think we will try for a quieter night next time. But it didn't help that rugby & football were on Saturday!!

    Had a very enjoyable evening. I had moroccan spiced chicken skewers and my husband had tuna steak and Vietnamese salad. Both were well presented and delicious. There arecstaff shortages in Tenby everywhere so hard to give 5 stars but staff work hard. Didn't like all the dogs in there.

    Starters tasted good but presentation was average. Garlic bread to die for but the lobster main course was very disappointing … barely any flesh at all. The restaurant did not charge for the lobster course after I complained to the manager but still very disappointing as was really looking forward to fresh Tenby lobster.

    Menu not extensive struggled to find a meal, what I ordered was good. Friends meal was not good, chicken fibrous just not right. All of us tried it and agreed but the waiter assured "noone else " had mentioned this... offered a drink but as leaving we said knock a drink off bill but they didn't. Wouldn't choose again as eaten twice .

    We had a fantastic evening here, food was amazing! Best we’ve had so far in Tenby. We also had some live music which was great after all these months of lockdowns. Staff were also great here. Very efficient service. Would love to come back but unfortunately all dates are fully booked which is great for them. Well done.

    Great venue. Good food. Had the sharing fruits de mare, but, it could had done with a garlic mayonnaise, or some dipping sauce. But other than that great. Highly recommend it. In the top 3 eateries in Tenby. Staff attentive without being too pushy. And a very good selection on the menu. Diolch yn fawr.
