Cape Schanck Restaurant wins at industry awards


Cape Restaurant located at RACV’s Cape Schanck Resort has won awards at the ‘2022 Vic & Tas Australia Restaurant and Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence’.

Cape was a winner in the ‘Premium Dining’ category and was also awarded ‘Restaurant of the Year – Regional’.

RACV Cape Schanck Resort Manager, Dean Newell says this is a great result for the region.

“We are honored to be part of the awards program and to be nominated amongst some of the industry’s best,” Mr. Newell said.

“The team are incredibly proud to be recognised for their work and to be named Restaurant of the Year – Regional.”

The Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently-judged awards program that celebrates exceptional service and culinary talent across the state. More than 130 local restaurants, cafes and catering businesses gathered to celebrate the achievements of their peers who were judged in over 45 categories.

RACV Executive General Manager Leisure, Craig Peachey said this is a significant achievement for the team and puts Cape Restaurant on the ‘must do’ list for those wanting an exceptional dining experience.

“This award is wonderful recognition of the exceptional experience the team are delivering now that we’re able to operate Cape Restaurant,” Mr. Peachey said.

The awards are the only program in Australia where the judging criteria is determined by consumers, who rank what is important to them in the dining experience.

The awards are then determined by independent judges who anonymously visit the venues. Restaurant and Catering Industry Association CEO Belinda Clarke says, “RACV’s Cape Schanck Resort should be immensely proud of this win. The past two years have been incredibly tough for the entire hospitality industry in Australia but success stories like this show how far hard work can take you. With the right mix of staff, products, produce and service, the results can be extraordinary.”
