I stayed at Cove Rotana with my parents and we decided to eat here on the night of my birthday. The food was delicious, the waiter attentive and they even surprised me with a cake and singing at the end of the meal. The atmosphere is perfect and I would definitely recommend eating here if you stay at The Cove.

What a beautiful setting overlooking the Persian Gulf enjoying exquisitely presented scallops, tuna tartar & salt encrusted bream. The fish was moist & delicate. The service was 5 star and it was the perfect end to a relaxing & culturally fascinating holiday. We are already planning another trip later in the year

Then i had Duck Breast with mash and spinach (that doesn't describe the sublime taste at all!) and my husband had a meat platter. Choc pud for him and raspberry pavlova for me. A bottle of prosecco completed. The... More

Good food but not much choice though and expensive. Staff are average. Although it was an ok experience (food wise) we won't go back.
