Consistently excellent food, I especially like the coconut chili lime prawns. The fish is usually local fish, and always fresh. The view is superb, and the staff is friendly and very accommodating. Don't be in a hurry, plan time to enjoy the experience.

The Cove Restaurant is a very small family-run outfit with live music, a lively bar, and a pretty spectacular menu. They were completely booked up when we arrived, but we managed to snag a table about 40 minutes before they closed.

Our only complaint (which is totally our fault, given that we didn't make a reservation!) was that by the time we sat down it was a bit too late for a heavy meal.

The salads we ultimately ordered were SUPERB, though. The service was great - very friendly and prompt!

If we ever go back to Shelter Cove, we'll most certainly be stopping by the Cove Restaurant.

The crab puffs really are delicious, crispy outside with lots of white crab meat inside; served with a homemade zingy dipping sauce. The salad had homemade dressing and was really fresh. The garlic mashed potato was a must have and the other vegetables that accompany the entrees were also just cooked right. We had fish, both were beautifully cooked.
The wine list is short and features well chosen local wines.
The place is quite small so everyone has a great view of the wildlife action in the sea.

We booked a window table for two for the 28th May and on our early arrival we sat at the bar and had a local beer which was great.
Our table was ready at 7pm and we had a great view of the coast and the wildlife.
We shared a crab appetizer which was just great for us and very delicious.
I had the snapper and my wife had the halibut, both were cooked excellently and the side dishes were tasty.
Having a window table was great as we could see the birds flying just past the window and the sea lions in the bay.
The staff were very welcoming and the service was swift and courteous.
Overall a great taste experience and a good time.

We were visiting Shelter Cove and ate at The Cove Restaurant a few nights. It’s located in the Oceanfront Inn in and is right on the water with great ocean views of the waves crashing over the rocks. Every meal we had was fresh and tasty. The crab puff appetizer plate is delicious. I think they mix crab with cream cheese and wrap it in a won-ton wrappers and then into the deep fryer. They cut them into smaller bit size servings and provide a tasty dipping sauce. There are a variety of fish options which were fresh and cooked to perfection. One night I ordered the Chinese chicken salad and it was tasty. We had reservations (which sometimes are necessary on Fridays and Saturdays) and were seated promptly every night. The restaurant is open Thurs thru Sun.
