Our Food

Many things have changed since our restaurant served it’s first meal but some things remain – creativity, quality, flavour and value. Since 1988, owner Mary Cowan’s signature take on home cooked classics have laid the foundation for today’s favs from the kitchen. Chef Joanne Edwards took the lead in the Cove kitchen throughout the 2010s. Her full flavoured, hearty dishes are inspired from her love of international cuisine with a comfort twist. Twin Chefs Sarah and Emily Brown are running the kitchen now producing everything delicious! We look forward to their continued leadership, creativity, hard work and of course, laughing!

The restaurant has a comfortable vintage feel with a welcoming ambiance and offers a style of food for many tastes.

In the warm months, dine on our patio surrounded by lush gardens, shady trees and enjoy fine outdoor entertainment on select days.

We offer signature evenings including Seasonal Wine Dinners, Wednesday Wings ‘n Tunes + Open Mic/Rack ‘n Tunes + Open Mic Nights and various holiday menus. Call us anytime 1.888.268.3466 and discuss your special event with Maureen or Seamus. We look forward to hosting you!


Wine Dinners & Food Pop-Ups

Since 2009, we at The Cove have been presenting special nights each season which feature the best in wine and food. Our Chefs Sarah Brown and Joanne Edwards and team always produce a stellar, creative multi course menu which allows us to showcase our expansive culinary interests and exceptional wines.

Working with The Cove’s own Seamus Cowan and resident WSET Sommelier, our wine dinners have become a local standard exploring the art of entertaining and dining! Expect thoughtful menus, exciting pairings and insightful wine stories!

Wine dinners are usually five courses with wine parings and Pop-Ups multiple course as well from 6-9pm. As always, there are overnight package deals. Reservations Only.
