    What a journey of flavours we experienced. As first time guests we chose the set menu and were enthralled we savoured each dish. No favourite dishes, but the delicate desert, was a glorious contrast to the flavours of the menu. We would love to come back and build out next meal from the small plates.

    Food was sensational as always. I do think the 6 of more people having set menu should probably be 8 or more. 3 couples I would think would be the norm for people going to dinner. I do understand why you do it for ease of menu.

    Can't fault the food, absolutely perfect! Service was good. We think your price point was about 20% to high. Atmosphere was too noisy for us to enjoy the company and view. Toilet location at back of house not great. No signage from road directing us to your door. All ataff were tentative, friendly and knowledgeable.

    The food is sensational; delicious favours, stunning presentation, and exciting combinations. We had the set menu for $85pp and it was the perfect balance of dishes and excellent value for money. The Duck curry with crispy duck skin and confit duck leg was to die for, as was the bug roll, karaage chicken and butterscotch dessert. The view is probably the best I have experienced in a restaurant, you are literally on the beach if you get a table next to the windows! However, it was SO LOUD we could bearly have a conversation between 4 of us. I think it was a combination of the lack of soft furnishings in the place and the fact it was Friday lunch. But I would recommend to go as early as possible during the week, to avoid the weekend crowds as it was uncomfortably noisy. The only other critique we have is that every one of the dishes on the set menu is spicy. I am usually not one for spice, and I still loved it as it is so well balanced, but if you are not keen on hot food you will not be able to eat many of the dishes. I would suggest that they ask people if they can handle spice, if they order the set menu. That being said, it was absolutely wonderful food with a stunning views, so these issues didnt impact our enjoyment of the meal too much. We would still recommend, and would return!

    Excellent experience at Rick Shore’s last night. We opted for the set menu and it was both delicious and very good value for money. We have been to Rick Shore’s a few times and it never disappoints. The bug roll is of course a must try. Staff were attentive and friendly!!

    As i have an allergy to onion we discussed it with the waiter. He convinced us to go for the set menu option as it would allow for no onion in my dishes or substituted ingredients. The food was great . Although a bit rushed with many of the dishes . Later the same evening i experienced stomach pains and severe indigestion which i have when i have consumed onion . Not a great experience. The reminder of the night was extremely uncomfortable. We were both disappointed with this happening even after we went to great lengths to explain my allergy . It was my partner’s birthday. Do a great romantic evening ended up being a big disappointment. I would be reluctant to dine here again . We had been there a couple of times previously on special occasions. And chosen our own dishes with no issues . My previous favourite was the Bug rolls which were always great . A-whole butterfly bug tail . The ones last night were bits and pieces and not what we remembered. Overall a great venue with excellent service. But not sure if we would spend the money to dine there again . Andrew Gray
