We went once years ago and it was lovely so we came back for a rare date brunch on Sunday 23/01/22. We ordered the seafood platter - it was awful. We couldn't eat it.

Fish was frozen not fresh. Flavorless. Oysters and mussels were smelly we didn't touch them. Cocktail Prawn overcooked. Even the battered fish was gross. So disappointed.

Even had to send the side plates back as they weren't washed. They did offer us a free dessert but we just wanted to leave - we even left the bottle of wine half finished. Pretty view and nice service from the young wait staff but won't be back

First time dining at the Cove. Pleasantly surprised. Good food and great service for a Friday lunchtime. Menu is simple and prices reflect a brilliant location.
Will be happy to book again.

Always in for a treat here!! The man behind the bar and who works in the pokies is so nice! Makes it for a better experience.
Will come again for sure. Food and drinks are a great price. Nice views into the marina.

Nice interior. Generous meal size, parmigiana coating was a little doughy... someone else's burger bun was a little dry, hot chocolate was lukewarm when asked for extra hot. Prices a tad high for the quality of food. Atmosphere pleasant however.

Bit of a mixed bag the slow cooked lamb shoulder was absolutely delicious and bursting with flavour and tenderness. The Parma on the other hand was dry as an old boot. Some other things I sampled such as the scollops and the risotto on the Christmas in July special was very bland.

The Cove was recommended to me by my Qld niece... and I decided I would try it out for myself.
I took my father, husband & sister to The Cove one cold, miserable day early July.
The food was delicious & served super quickly. It was fresh & hot.
The staff were very attentive & very knowledgeable.
I was very impressed, so-much-so I've booked for Fathers Day!!

Brought my mum for her birthday and I was a little disappointed in the menu.
Not too much if a variety.
The place us glorious.

The Cove is a very nice place to have lunch. Unfortunately it is a bit over priced. My last visit on lock down eve was a little dissappointing. The food was fine. The service was average. Still worth a try. I will probably go again when Dan let's me out again.

Accommodating and attentive staff, friendly service and delicious cuisine. Extensive menu and seafood very fresh. Seated with a lovely marina view on short notice by gracious floor manager named Blake whom made sure I was well looked after. Restaurant well designed, everything clean with comfortable seating and nice decor. Food is a touch overprice for what you are getting at a pub. Pleasant vibe and easy access to parking area. Will be returning.

Hi everyone!It gives me no pleasure to have to write this review but, honesty to prevail.I booked a table by the Marina on line with The Cove Hotel / Patterson lakes which was confirmed both by Fork and The Cove. The booking was made for 2 people for dinner last Sat 23/1 at 6.30 pm. On arrival we were told by a woman called Stephanie that our table by the Marina was not available and we had to sit in a little dark corner inside. She claimed to be the Manageress despite lacking the presence and the communication skills. Not an apology but, she offered us complimentary drinks. She did not even try to assist and was kind of apathetic. Regretably, we had no other choice but to leave with a bitter taste in our mouths. We have been going to The Cove for more than 10 years and, have also recommend to many as we always enjoyed good service and meals. Despite having sent multiple emails since last Sunday 24/1 , nobody had the decency to reply to me. It is a total disgrace to see their total disrespect to customers.

Went there with the family, we waited 1 1/2 hours for our meals, in that time we had the chance to order 2 drinks. As we were eating our meals we were informed our sitting was for 2 hours so we needed to leave in 20 minutes, that was the first we had heard about the 2 hour sitting, not mentioned at the time of booking or upon seating. Spoke to staff at the time & the following day, pretty much got the same response of that is our time limit. We were there to celebrate a birthday & birth of new baby. With the lack of empathy don't think we'll bother again. Have given 2 stars as our young server was super polite & very helpful.

A spacious venue with water views over the Marina. Plenty of on site parking. Food is well presented generous without being too much. Staff are courteous and attentive. Be sure to make a booking to ensure your preferred dining time.
