    Too many members of staff behind the bar leaving the young lad with fair wavy hair doing all the work. Slow service & food was only ok. Nothing to entice me back

    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.

    Booked a table at The Cove and I could not have been happier with my choice. The venue always clean, staff very polite, helpful and attentive to the needs of the customer. Food was amazing, I had the spicy chicken fajitas. They were superb 👌 To add to the ambiance was live music. The atmosphere was electric, the entertainment superb and I will definitely be returning. A little gem of a bar in a gem of a place, Tenby. Would highly recommend 👌👍👏🙌

    Great venue, food is outstanding if slightly pricey but I guess that’s a sign of the times these days and in-line with other places in Tenby. Service is great and everybody is super friendly. We stayed in Tenby 4 days and went there twice, both occasions excellent.

    Unfortunately we were disappointed with the food and service. The waitress was very friendly, however she brought over an alcoholic beer instead of an alcohol free one after pointing to the right one on the menu. Ciabattas were tasteless and chips were cold. (We had Crab ciabatta and beer battered fish Ciabatta). The table was also dirty. Never leave reviews but feel the restaurant needs to know to improve.
