Love the view of the restaurant. Although the staff is not as friendly as Tea of Spring, but they are nice. I love the seafood there. It was very tasty. They also have live music while we are dining.

Superb view, nice kitchen, good food, good ambiance. This is really a high end place but the prices are still very reasonable.

At Cowrie Cove, guests can savor fresh seafood under a canopy of stars and with the sound of ocean waves directly below the alfresco deck. The newly renovated Waves Bar is the perfect venue for guests to enjoy signature cocktails at sunset.
