An enjoyable, but I would have given more stars only because we didn’t like our seating, next to the busy walk ramp and waiters station. Food was worth every penny, in my booking it asked me was it a special occasion and I put Birthday, but there was no acknowledgement, so why ask this in my booking when there is nothing ? Great wine list and a sublime Negroni.

The restaurant is excellent and obviously very popular but the noise level is almost unbearable in fact probably higher than safe level. Table cloths or some other material would no doubt help.

A fabulous dining experience! Delicious food, attentive service, with apologies for delay with some food due to a fully booked restaurant - a delay we did not mind because it gave us longer to enjoy the view. Would definitely return.

Overall we had a lovely birthday dinner celebration. The positioning of the restaurant with the view of the ocean is absolutely beautiful. The ambiance of the restaurant is great and the wait staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. Food is a little pricey for smaller portions but tastes incredible. Overall would recommend as a great restaurant for a fancier occasion.

Stunning location and great food. However, extremely noisy. Understand why carpet would not be appropriate but wonder if some sort of sail cloth could be arranged for the roof?

Service was terrible, delay without being advised and wrong food being delivered. We not very accomodating seeing as we booked for a friends birthday which they knew and it was a large group they didn’t offer us a good table and were slow to do anything we asked (put down shade because sun was beaming in and becoming very hot and uncomfortable)

What a magnificent setting to enjoy the best meal I have had in Australia. My request for a window table was granted and we had the most fabulous day with my family from South Africa. Highly recommend Rick Shores to those who appreciate fine dining with exquisite Asian flavors.

First time visit with family for special birthdays. Wowed from the moment we arrived. The water lapping in the moonlight, the most gorgeous table attendant and every morsel of food a delight. Would highly recommend for something special or for visitors to show off GC at its finest. Can’t wait for another occasion to return

We had a brilliant lunch post half marathon running. Our group of 8 all loved the food. We enjoyed great service despite the restaurant being full. Without prompting they provided some additional shelter from bright sun and glare that some of us were experiencing. Advice on wine and quantity of food to order was spot on. Highly recommend and looking forward to returning.
