I have visited Paradise Cove Restaurant many times before and it is always fantastic! We had our wedding at Paradise Cove: we stayed 5 nights and the food was consistently outstanding throughout our entire stay. Everything on the menu is delicious - fresh & great...quality. My favourites are the curries and poulet fish nicoise. The restaurant also catered our reception dinner and the food was beyond words! From the appetizers to dessert, everything was so tasty and beautifully plated. I cannot thank Chef Tao and his amazing team enough! As well as the amazing ladies in the restaurant - I can't wait to see you all again!More

With the option of dining in the main thatched roof and authentic restaurant building, or a more intimate waterfront dining experience on the sand, we enjoyed many meals here while staying at the resort. The staff are discrete and very attentive, and the menu was...extensive and the food of high quality. All tastes are able to be accommodated and the kids menu meant that the whole family could enjoy the dining experience. We were fortunate to have booked the New Year's eve dining experience, which together with the fire dance provided by locals, was an extremely enjoyable night and a perfect one to usher in 2020. An absolute joy and an experience that is highly recommended.More

We had the pleasure of staying at Paradise cove and dining at the restaurant there is a must. A couple of the nights we had dinner and sat by the crystal clear water, it was so peaceful and the food was delicious. The staff are...so friendly and always smiling. We had complimentary breakfast and enjoyed sitting in the communal area. The food is quality and fresh and also very good prices. I am a vegetarian and didn't have a problem finding something to eat. We highly recommend eating there.More

We have just spent a week here and ate at the restaurant every night. This wasn’t the plan as we generally avoid the restaurants of the places we stay. However after choosing the Poulet fish special on the first night of our stay we decided,...why eat anywhere else? The food was delicious. Beautifully cooked and presented and the staff welcoming and friendly. One of us chose the special every evening and we were never disappointed. Well done chef and restaurant team!More

had several lunches and dinners there while staying at the resort and the food is fantastic, very fresh, local and made to order. The chicken curry is a must try and make sure to check the special of the day on the board. I had...veal cutlet one night and it was just divine! Most of the food is grown locally so super fresh and tasty! The Nakamal setting is just beautiful, service is professional and you can even dine in the beach fare downstairs to have an intimate dinner or lunch next to the sound of the ocean. a must!More

We chose to stay and have dinner in the restaurant all of the 7 nights we stayed at Paradise Cove Resort (our third trip in as many years.) Why wouldn't we when the staff are so sweet and lovely and the food is great...not one...disappointment all week. I thought both the Chicken and Vegetable Coconut Curries were particularly nice and my husband had the Eye Fillet twice he thought it was so good. The atmosphere in both the stunning Nakamal or down by the seaside with our feet in the sand is, for us, perfect. We will definitely be back.More

Ok so it’s a nice place to eat, great view, friendly staff and owner. But the menu is getting tired and overpriced. Do you have to use the same salad on nearly every dish? Chicken curry is nice, had it last time 3 years ago!...Hasn’t changed. My wife had a prawn garlic gnocchi. Way over salted and smothered in a very acidic tomato based sauce. No mention of it being tomato on the specials board. My wife is not fond of tomato. Prawns over cooked. And for god sake teach those girls how to make cocktails. What the hell was that mint concoction? Glass full of mint leaves and sugar. All in all just like the rest of vila, overpriced and over cooked.More
