We've really enjoyed our dinner at The Cove. The setting was very special, overlooking the ocean and some lights placed by the Banyan Tree Hotel. The food was delicious as well. We've had a crab meat ratatouille as a starter (exceptionally delicious) and 2 fish...More

Another fantastic setting at the banyan tree, it's expensive, but food is good, fish in particular - worth visiting. Beats most other restaurants in Bintan. Service is friendly, fast and efficient. We enjoyed sitting outside and smoking some cigarettes.

Typical restaurant set in a rustic set up overlooking the sea. Food is not bad but considering the price we pay is not particularly exciting.

We ate here twice. It serves a diverse range of dishes though we concentrated on local dishes and they were excellent including particularly the laksas. Staff were friendly polite and helpful and this is a great location.

So if you want a break from local fare - the cove is a real nice surprise with fresh ingredients. I think the Banyan Tree executive Chef has really done a good job to update the meal offerings.
