We ate at Risbys on our first night in Strahan and enjoyed our meals. The service was a bit scratchy and it seemed there were not enough staff for the restaurant. We had to ask to order drinks and we also didn't receive our complimentary bread until our entrees were being delivered while others received this within a couple of minutes of sitting down.

In saying that the bread was delicious and so were our meals. The seafood was perfectly cooked and flavoured beautifully. It the service had been a little bit better/consistent I would have given the restaurant full marks. Definitely one to visit but make sure you have a reservation or you will be unlikely to get in, at least on a Saturday night, from what we saw!

Had an early dinner here and it was excellent. Great fresh grilled fish. Right on the water. Small, simple building. Great service.

Fantastic evening meal, lovely location and very good service, my only complaint was that the restaurant was freezing! Food however well worth the visit.

Thank you to the staff and especially the chef for a wonderful "Seafood Sampler " platter for two on 28/05/2014. What was described earlier by the Chef was exceeded by the sheer quality of the delivered meal in front of us. No batter, no breadcrumb cover ups, no chips piled high as a plate filler,. Just first rate Blue Eye, Ocean Trout, Oysters, Mussels, Octopus, Calamari and Scallops.
As fresh as though pulled straight from the bay. Worth the drive across from Hobart alone.
Thanks again.

I don't know how they manage to pull off such a fine dining experience considering how remote this is. Really nice dinner and THE spot in town for lovely ambience.
