We were recommended this restaurant by the B&B we were staying at in Strahan, and we were not disappointed. We had made a reservation and w're lucky enough to get a table by the window, overlooking the water (beautiful sunsets there!). We had lamb which was cooked perfectly and was so tasty and tender. The whole meal and service was... More

Drove into Strahan just at dusk, Risby Cove was difficult to find as nothing was lit up to show where it was. Eventually found it and to be quite honest we got a real shock as all we could see in the dark were tin shacks. There was no reception sign so we went to the busy restaurant and were... More

We stayed in Orimston but the landlady booked us to dine in Risby Cove on the first night. Driving from Hobart to Stahan is demanding as the road is over 300km long and we were late for dinner. Our landlady called Risby and they said they would be able to entertain us though we were late. When we arrived, Risby... More

Our stay at Risby Cove was very disappointing. We were ushered to our room zig zagging our way along a deck dotted with multiple large droppings from geese. The invitation to have breakfast on the deck at the table chairs provided to overlook the harbour was not a pleasant option amongst this smelly mess of which the staff member seemed... More

Strahan is a beautiful place and Risby cove is located on Risby cove hence the name given. The room which was given to us was named 'Boat Shed'. Just located off the cove with a nice deck to relax and have morning coffee or tea. Staff were helpful and co operative. The only issue is that even we were told... More

We were so glad we decided to stay at Risby Cove, perfect location. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome. We managed to check in early which was a bonus and had a wonderful chat with Debbie about the surrounding area, what to see and where to go. We stayed in one of the waterfront cottages which I highly... More

Hotel location fantastic. We had a 2 bedroom downstairs and we could hear a lot of walking around noise from the apartment above. Next time I wouldn't get a ground floor. Restaurant was over priced and service ok. Food was suitable but not awesome. Mosquitos everywhere in restaurant and outside. Lots of stagnant water around breeding ground for mozzies. Overall...
