incredible experience can’t wait to go back
Great location, wonderful service and food but really noisy which ruins the ambience a bit
Great food in a beautiful setting. We had the set menu and cant recommend it highly enough if you want to try a few different dishes .
Great service amazing staff. Elizabeth was more than helpful and extremely efficient. She was more than happy to leave us to think about what we wanted and very happy to advise us on any request. We are very keen to come back and enjoy the amazing food and service again. The veiw to the beach was spectacular. Thank you so much Rick Shores. We will highly recommend you as you offered us a special and very unique experience. See you next time Rick Shores. Kate
We have been there for dinner for my wife’s birthday. The staff were really nice and the food was served quickly and they were yummy. It has been an awesome experience and we highly recommend it.
View best ever
Always a wonderful experience. Our favourite restaurant on the Gold Coast.
Gorgeous outlook and service amazing!
It’s a great venue but in my opinion the food just doesn’t match the hype!
The seafood rolls are beautiful but not worth $20!
I had the King prawn curry. 4 prawns on a bed of curry sauce. $10 a prawn is crazy and surely a small bowl of rice should be complimentary!
I felt the Barramundi was “soggy “
and tasted like it had been frozen , certainly not fresh! Service was good but if it weren’t for the ocean views the venue is extremely noisy!
We chose the set menu and enjoyed tasting many delicious morsels as well as the famous bug roll, a wonderful curry and yummy dessert. Perfect portion sizes.
Top marks to the wonderful staff who know the dishes well, are very customer orientated and made our night. Special shout out to Elizabeth and Keon. Well done.
The location is second to none with the rocks, beach, waves and sweeping views back to Surfers unbeatable.
Thank you to all.
Absolutely beautiful food. We had the set menu, and were not disappointed. Wait staff were so welcoming and attentive. We would be regulars, if we only lived closer.
Wonderful food, fabulous views and excellent service
Outstanding as always. Best real estate on the Gold Coast and always a special place to dine.
We wanted somewhere special for my wife's birthday lunch & Rick Shores was perfect! The location is second to none, the views sublime, the food was over the top fantastic! We only had three different dishes and wished we had bigger appetites. Every dish was stunning! Already tried to book for my birthday in March but have to wait for Online bookings to start accepting bookings that far in advance. Highly recommended!
The cocktails, espresso martinis were the only negative. Great time
Great atmosphere, very friendly staff, and good quality food
Great service, great food and drinks.
Will definitely return again.
We've dined a few times with friends and have enjoyed the ambience.
The cocktails and wine selections are good but food servings are quite small and the choices for "spice sooks" and Coeliacs is very limited.
Sam has been our waiter twice and he and the energetic staff are a credit to the management.
We will go again for special celebrations, mainly because of the views and general ambience of this very spectacular position, overlooking Burleigh Beach.
Everything was outstanding -
From the moment we were greeted to the moment we left. The wait staff are on another level of service. And THE VIEW.. OMG😍
Food and service was, for the most part, very tasty and diligent. However, we were celebrating a special birthday and saw another table celebrating what could have well been the same occasion, with a dessert carrying a sparkler brought to their table at the end of their meal. When we had finished our meal and drinks, there was no mention of our occasion or any signifier of the same kind, which felt a bit remiss considering the booking had been made acknowledging the birthday celebration. These little things, though seemingly insignificant, make the biggest impact sometimes, and on this occasion we left feeling a touch disappointed. Flaked salt for the table would have also been a welcome addition, as a couple of the sides were a touch under-seasoned.
Lovely position on the beach.
Meal was very rushed, we were receiving 2 or 3 plates each time and very quickly, even when we were still eating another course, it seemed like they were in a hurry to get us out and for them to go home.
Food was quite nice but I’ve had better, view saves it. Unsure if we’d go back again.
Excellent experience! Defiantly a place to go for a special occasion.
Every single dish was so tasty. The view was amazing and the service was incredible. Can’t wait to go back!
Sensational good, especially the small plates and dumplings. Keep it up. The Gold Coast needs you. Very cool!
Well worth the wait to pre book. T'was a stormy night, the mocktails were fabulous, food sensational, value was second to none. Service was friendly enough, they were so busy, no time for chit chat and that was ok! The food was pumped out like a well oiled machine.
Amazing food, great service, cool ambiance, big bill 🤣
Best location with great service and amazing food
Fabulous ambiance, service and food - Rick Shores always impresses !
One of the most enjoyable lunches ever. I can thoroughly recommend the set menu with matching wines.
Fantastic setting and amazing food and so filling! Highly recommend the set menu.
Loved our meal but I requested
Can't wait to come back to Rick Shores loved everything about especially the bug roll tum yum yum
This restaurant i wonderful. The food is great, the service is excellent and the drinks are also yummy. Wish I lived closer so I could go more often.
First time at Rick Shores! And loved it.
Casual & cruise
Staff really friendly and views to die for!
Food, ambience, staff were amazing! Nothing was a trouble! Had the $79 set menu and everything was very impressive from the oysters, the king fish through to the main with a Duck Curry!
Absolutely recommend and will be making the trip there again very soon
Thanks Ellie and all the staff for making it such a memorable night with Good friends Fiona & Paul
Scotty & Sue
We always celebrate special occasions at Rick Shores. Sammy our host was excellent. Seated next to us was the premier of Qld to one side and band members of Sheppard to the other side - 2 years ago it was Delta Goodrem , wow special place to celebrate our birthday. Thanks for making our time dining at Rick Shores an enjoyable and memorable occasion. See you again next up November anniversary ;) Cheers !
Patrick looked after us very well! We had a great experience
Food and cocktails were amazing!
I came here to surprise and celebrate my friend for her 30th birthday. Such a nice place to go for a special occasion. Food was amazing and quite generous servings, service was great and location of course is outstanding. This was my third visit, and my friends first visit, and safe to say we’ll both be back!
Good service combined with good views and good food
Wonderful service from all the staff, absolutely delicious food and you can’t beat that view! We will always visit Rick shores while staying down the coast
