Restaurant was great - service was fantastic, location ideal, however I am not a fan of the 2-hour lunch booking. The food was incredible, Tegan our waitress was very attentive and helpful, however, we were prepared to continue to eat, drink and stay in the restaurant for many hours past our 2 hour booking, but were shuffled out of our seat within the 2 hour timeframe, despite the fact that our dessert was not ready during this timeframe.
A little disappointed with this outcome, as we would have loved to have stayed on in the restaurant. But on the whole, a fantastic experience, and we will definitely be back.

My wife turned 60 and we booked for 4. We got the best seat in the house. The food was generous. The service outstanding. The wine delightful. The sound of waves lapping whilst viewing Surfers Paradise lights at night . Everything just worked together for a wonderful night. Thanks staff of Rick Shores.

Everything about this place is fantastic! This was our second visit in two days and we were only in the area for 4. Everything we stew was delicious and the wine list was innovative and good value. Coupled with first rate service this place is very hard to beat!

Definitely not what we were expecting from a "hatted" restaurant. Menu looked fantastic, we read the reviews and were excited to book this for our annual special birthday lunch, where we treat our partner. Food was REALLY disappointing. The restaurant itself was tired and faded. Tables felt sticky. Ground felt sandy. Well past its heyday. We like to go all-out on special occasions so ordered all the signature food items. Ricks fried bug roll was not bad. Fresh fish, soft bun & crunchy batter. But how hard is it to get a bun and sauce wrong. The oysters were ok. 5 out of 10. We've tasted much plumper & fresher elsewhere. Again disappointing for a restaurant that proclaims fresh local produce. King prawn yellow curry came in a huge bowl but food was less than 1 cm deep. We counted 5 x tiny prawns and a whole lot of sauce for $36. The flavour was tasty and as good as most thai restaurants where I can get the same flavour but with more prawns & veges for $15. Roast Cauliflower may have fared better if it was chopped into bite size pieces. Served in a large chunk and drenched in salty teriyaki sauce. We noticed our neighbours didn't finish this either. We imagined the roast pork belly, chilli jam & egg net would be imaginative and delicious from a #1 rated restaurant but it was one of the worst dishes we've had. Cold, hard, fatty pork, pineapple chunks and limp salad with a heavy smear of cooked egg trying to resemble a net. It looked like all the kitchen leftovers had been thrown together & covered in bottled sweet chilli sauce. We couldn't eat and the waiter kindly offered to take this off our bill. Reasonable wine list, cocktails lacked finesse. My espresso martini was watery and weak. Perhaps we came on an off day? Perhaps we ordered the wrong things. We love our food, love trying new restaurants and have eaten all around the world. Unfort we'll be spending our money elsewhere in the future. The food and ambiance certainly looked nothing like the images on website.

There are not enough adjectives to describe this fantastic restaurant. The staff are amazing and a big shout out to our lovely waitress Anna who made us all feel right at home and nothing was too much trouble. The food never fails to impress and the presentation of the meals are a promise of such good things to come. Every mouthful takes you to heaven and and it would be remiss of me not to mention the bugs! Next time I’ll just order six and forgo the other culinary delights. Don’t ever take the bugs off the menu as it would cause a riot.
We celebrated a special friend’s 50th birthday at Table 24 (absolute waterfront with a view to die for) and she said it was the highlight of her birthday celebrations. The ultimate venue for superb food with a view to match.
Thanks so very much - we can’t wait to return 😊

The food was delicious, the view sensational but unfortunately the kitchen were having an 'off' day service wise and it was quite slow. Our table waitress was excellent and apologetic and the manager took 20% off our total bill, which was very generous. Thank you. Would definitely go back again.

I don’t like that meals can’t come out at the same time and it was particularly bad this time as one meal got missed altogether. Normally service is quite good and our waiter was very friendly but also very forgetful.

Firstly the location was magnificent. It actually felt like we were having dinner at the beach. Service was great and the menu suggestion was spot on. We were advised 2 main meals with side dishes would be enough for 4 and it was. Thank you for a great night.

A group of friends and I had the pleasure of dining at Rick Shores for a birthday celebration. I booked our table and was delighted when we were seated front and centre. What an amazing view and a beautiful ambience the restaurant has. All the staff were so lovely and attentive. The food was amazing. Bug rolls were a definite favourite for us, but we absolutely loved everything we tried.

I came here for my 6 year anniversary with my boyfriend and my mums birthday. Lots of options on the menu so we went with the banquet so that we could try everything. Cocktails were really nice too. Something that really detracted from the ambience of the ocean and fine dining was a few tables of really loud and drunk middle aged people. I could barely speak to my mum and boyfriend who were sitting right next to me or hear what they were saying. I’m hoping this isn’t a regular Friday night as I do plan on coming back again.
