Great as usual however with all the windows open it was really cold. I love the windows open to see the ocean but it was just too cold on this particular evening as it had been raining all day.

This restaurant has unforgettable views. We had lunch on a sunny Friday afternoon and the view across to Surfers Paradise is spectacular. Food was great, generous portions and delicious. The service for the drinks was a little slow but the wine selection was good. It was a little noisy given we were sat near a few tables of lunching ladies that got quite boisterous but otherwise an excellent dining experience and would highly recommend.

Was a great night out. Food was well balanced. Waiter very knowledgeable of both food and wine. Very good value for money. Well worth a visit.

With the doors open to the beach, and the reflection of the moon on the ocean - view hard to beat.

What an outstanding location and excellent food! Our $89 set menu for lunch was exceptional and prepared beautifully. We will definitely return to dining here again and enjoy the priceless view of the beach, ocean and Gold Coast.

Beautiful location with beautiful friends and beautiful food. We had a window seat and a 5:45pm seating with set menu. We were able to watch the waves roll in whilst enjoying our cocktails, the W8 was smooth and set the tone for the remainder of the evening. We loved the knowledge shared about each dish which helped us delve into all the taste sensations that each dish brought. Will be back for sure!

We had the set menu. The portions were I think overall spot on but on the crispy soft shell crab they were a little light on the crab.

The wine list was well priced for a restaurant of this standard and quite a few options.

Because it is set like a concrete bunker it is loud. There is nothing to cushion the noise. You get used to it after a while.

Really enjoyed our long lunch and the timing of the courses was spot on.

The food was fabulous. I cannot fault. The noise level was terrible, it was so loud with the concrete walls and floors. It maybe better in summer if they have the windows open but you would not be wanting a romantic dinner. We were yelling all night to be heard. Also a wet wipe after eating the sticky duck would have been a nice touch. Other than this I would go back just for the food.

Thank you so much for a beautiful lunch. Our service person Robyn was absolutely lovely and so great at her role, our water glass was never empty and and she did so well with our dietary requirements.
Thanks very much to the chefs for accommodating four dietary requirements. We were made to feel like is was not a problem and everyone got to really enjoy every dish which were absolutely delicious!

As always, Rick's was packed which continues to demonstrate the attractive proposition that this restaurant provides. On the beach: tick that. Delicious food: tick that. Service on point: tick that. What else do you want on a beautiful sunny QLD Friday afternoon: nothing!

Great food and service. Can't beat dinning in style with the view of the beach side. We did the $89 lunch menu and we thought that was great value for a special occasion.

One of the most amazing nights we've ever had. Firstly, the service was amazing (we're all "old" ex hospitality people) and we loved having so many wonderful service people looking after us, being a step ahead of our needs, laughing with us and obviously loving their jobs. Then the food... Wowzer, silence from all of us as our mouths started dancing, the look between us knowing we were all feeling the beginning of a wonderful food journey. Each plate brought more mouth tingling delights. It wasn't just a dinner, it was a food journey. The time between each plate was perfect. Never felt hurried, never left waiting. Our only issue was how to leave elegantly with the buttons to our pants, undone. Thank you to Rick Shores. You take every consideration for your staff and your customer. You gave us a foodie memory that will last forever. Our mouths still water. talking about our experience.

We felt it feel short of our last experience there, though that was pre covid etc. While it's a great location and the service was good, we were disappointed with a couple of dishes. The crab salad had little crab in it, and the dessert was a non event.
We had a non seafood eater in our group who was well catered for which was nice.
We spent over $170 per head, which is not an issue, as we had some lovely wine and other drinks. Just a bit underwhelmed with the food.
Many thanks
