Pre-holiday reading indicated that this is the premier restaurant in Strahan. It did not disappoint. The food was top quality, especially the wallaby. The wine was also good. On top of this, there wer great views over the cove to a brilliant sunset. Highly recommended.

Risby Cove has a beautiful outlook so try to book early and ask if there are any waterside tables. Food is well prepare and tasty, my partner had the fish (which seemed a popular dish) and I had the Halloumi salad.More
