      -From the hotel perspective, as result of the latest government announcements it will be suspending operations as accommodation until further notice. We can provide accommodation for emergency and essential service workers.

       While we recognize this change in services might be a disappointment for our guests, the safety of our team, guests and community is our number one priority.

       We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and will make further decisions on the resumption of services as this situation progresses.

       Thank you for your support during these unprecedented times. Risby Cove Team #supportlocalbusiness #supportlocal #tassiestyle

      Our Chef

      Our menu changes every season and features primarily locally grown produce. 

      Our head chef, create every dish to highlight taste, feature local produce where possible and demonstrate creativity.

      Shanaka Wijetuga  

      The shortest way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach. And that’s why Shanaka’s loves making good food. Even after a busy day at work, Shanaka would not hesitate to get busy in the kitchen.  He believes that it is important to pay attention to good food because it is what sustains life. Starting his career at age 18 as a hotelier, he worked his way to the top in the kitchens of some of Sri Lanka’ top hotels such as Ceylon Continental, Aitken Spence, John Keells, Blue Waters and Taj Samudra.  His work in Australia as a Sous Chef in Water line restaurant which received an award for ‘Best Restaurant in QLD 2017’ was a proud moment in his career.

      His passion for the culinary arts keeps him eager to learn, experiment and introduce more. His current job as a our chef at Risby Cove is a logical next step in his quest for international exposure to learn culinary concepts. His skills include banqueting,  managing food cost, creating recipes, customer-based menu engineering, waste management, ISO 22000 and HACCP.

      We love him because he brings in a vast wealth of experience, knowledge and passion for the culinary arts. Also, his cooking is to die for.

       The Winter menu will be announced soon!
