The Cove

Maenporth Beach
TR11 5HN

C is very good at finding lovely restaurants in Cornwall and she was successful again with The Cove. Its location on Maenporth Beach means that the views are stunning, though of course the day we went it was quite gray and drizzly so we didn't get the full benefit of the big glass windows. Still, the food is also cooked with care and by someone who clearly knows how to do fish perfectly. I started with Crispy Deep Fried Tiger Prawns, Aioli, Gremolata - we noticed that the frying here is also very good as all the fried items were crisp and greaseless. My main was the stunner though - Sesame Crusted Cod Filet with Mirin, Chilli, Ginger and Coriander Dressing. The Asian flavors went so well with the cod and it was cooked just to the point of being firm enough to flake, but without any of the toughness you get once cod goes a tiny bit past done. A place to remember for a return visit!
