The Cove opened in late 2014 and within the past nine years has established itself as one of the must go to places in Northland. Not surprisingly the Cove was voted the people's choice award for most outstanding restaurant, cafe & bar in the 2020 Northland Hospitality Awards and the Best out Of Town in The Remix Awards in 2022. Located opposite one of Northlands most iconic beaches with beautiful views across to Whangarei Heads and the Hen and Chicken Islands it is the perfect place to sit with friends to enjoy spectacular food and a refreshing local beer or wine. With a great mix of both indoor and outdoor dining the cove is a must do dining experience for both locals and tourists alike.The Cove is an iconic little gem in the Waipu Community. It is always a warm, relaxed and inviting place to be. Whether coming straight from a beach stroll, swim or surf or out for a special occasion, the team, the food and the setting cater for it all! Since it's arrival the Cove has brought something extra special to an already very special area. The owners and the staff are very much infused within the local community. But it is not just the locals that love the Cove, customers travel from Auckland and all throughout Northland to experience some of the good vibes and magic overflowing here.
