Really nice restaurant, well set up on the waterfront. Came here with family for dinner, easy to get a booking and were well looked after by staff. Went for a few of their banquet options and it was amazing food. Very full at the end...and greta value for money.More

Food was great, particularly our main meals of the fish stew and slow cooked lamb. Plus this is a lovely setting. Only downside was very slow service, but totally understand we were visiting at a busy time, and we were given some complimentary bread as...an apology, which was a nice touch.More

We chose this beautiful restaurant for a special celebration and the menu we selected was the set courses. It was fantastic to the point that it was too much food, but we did take it home for later. The wait staff was excellent and the...setting was perfect, the only thing missing was weather around the 30 deg. and tables outdoors.More

Great food. Tasteful. We had the Brazilian moqueca. Too bad they don’t open on Mon/Tue for us to go back. For desert we had the coconut crème caramel and Lime cheese cake. Highly recommend.

We had dinner on a busy Friday night. Service was good and there's a nice vibe. Kitchen is open so you can see the chefs at work. Food was very good.

We had a lovely meal at Risby Cove. The staff were all very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. I am vegan and my husband is omni, so it was great to see a number of dishes that could be veganised. I was...also thrilled to see that the vegan version of the dishes didn’t just mean taking things off (as is still too often the case at many restaurants) but adding in other ingredients as replacements. We shared the potatoes and greens, while I had the squash and my hubby had the lamb and some scallops. All were great! Highly recommendMore
