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.

Welcome and Service was great , very friendly, Food was ok , Lamb was warm at best not hot, tacos were not as spiced enough , quite bland.

My main problem was with the very relaxed apparent Covid rules where if you were local and knew the staff it was ok to come in or once in wander around with no masks on site . The rules are there for a reason and it was quite a shock to see. 3 women came in at the door waved to the bar not a mask between them , also a couple already sat down twice went outside for a smoke again no masks.

Not good enough sorry

Shame as it’s a nice place but I didn’t feel safe

Thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch with my husband. Not somewhere I would take the children. Will definitely book cocktails and food when lockdown is over. Loved the atmosphere and decor!

We were in Tenby for the weekend and visited twice, we enjoyed our visit so much on the Saturday night that we rebooked for the Sunday.
Our visit on the Sunday was very disappointing, terrible service, kept pouring the wrong drinks, waited 1 hour 15 minutes for our food after ordering and had to ask for the bill several times before having to approach the bar myself to pay my bill.
This was definitely not the experience we received on the Saturday evening before, it felt like we had booked a different restaurant.

The food was outstanding the meat platter was more than enough for 2 persons.... my only niggle was that we had to ask gor our table to be cleared after eating and no one asked if we wanted top up drinks again we had to find someone and ask .... would i return most definately as tge food was outstanding just feel the service needed a little more attention ... ave recommended to friends travelling to tenby the weekend xx thank u

On entering the lounge bar and restaurant have tables spaced in accordance with social distancing.
Extensive menu but being Friday, my wife daughter and I ordered fish and chips.
Attentive waitress took our drinks order and food order simultaneously as we did not require time to peruse the menu.
Excellent portion of fish and chips with a very tasty salad.
Quality of fish first class with a light crispy batter.
Very pleasant ambience and decoration.
Polite and efficient waitress.
As this was our first visit we will have no hesitation in returning and recommending to our friends.
