Open through lunch to dinner, Tuesday to Sunday.
Location- no 1- definitely!
Our mains arrived about 7 to 10 mins apart,
Very disappointing there.
And dessert was a huge negative-
Chocolate bowl with the cherry sorbet and cafe au lait.
I’d describe it as a gummy, mushy bowl of porridge.
To the restaurants credit, they could see how much I didn’t eat, so didn’t charge on the bill.
But I think the waiter could have asked my feedback on why I couldn’t eat it!
Service and food was amazing, however they served us two portions of a dish that we didn't order. The wait staff removed it immediately but when we check our bill they charged us anyway. Lucky we check the bill.
It was all sorted but were disappointed that we had to check based on the level of service we had up to that point.
Lovely views great service and a delicious meal - just perfect thank you
The waiter dropped curry on my white dress when she was clearing the table. She apologised and said nappy sand will get that out...! Hmmm it’s a $600 dress the least she could do is offer to give a coffee or wine complimentary. When we spent $250 on lunch. This left a bad taste in my mouth
The service was great and the food was excellent
We absolutely loved it here and will definitely be back! The bug roll and Thai vinegarette oysters were standouts and the deserts were amazing. The location is one of the best on the coast and the restaurant makes the most of it being nice and open with an unreal view and sea breezes. Service was great everyone was very happy, Kim was our waitress and was super helpful in explaining the menu.10/10
Would recommend with reservations. Firstly, it is expensive, a 'special occasion' venue. The setting is
great, especially at a table near the ocean.
We thought the food was very good, except for the main course which was a curry which was too spicy [ tongue still burning 15 mins later ].
Service was excellent , wine was nice.
There are other good restaurants within 100 metres which are less expensive. Rick Shores' cooking will need to be good to sustain it's status.
Whilst food was pricey it was amazing and totally worth it. Great service and recommendations, would recommend highly.
5th time having the banquet at rick shores, 5th time with an outstanding experience in both food & service. This is my go to every time someone visits the GC and I want them to have a great experience. Not cheap, but very reasonable for what you get. Service is friendly, efficient & preofesssional every time. Thank you
The best setting for romantic dinner on the Gold Coast!
Fabulous right from when we were first introduced to our wait person. The view is spectacular, and the food was amazing. We went for the ‘Feed me’ menu and were not disappointed. I absolutely loved the Bug Roll.
Our only disappointment was that our first choice of asahi and a Marlborough Sauv Blanc we’re both unavailable. Of course there were alternatives but the white was an extra $30. Hovers it was very good.
Overall, a wonderful dining experience. Looking forward to returning
If we wanted shared/bench style seating for our 25 year anniversary dinner which we booked 2 weeks in advance we would have gone to Sushi Train. No notification of this seating arrangement was provided when booking. Very disappointing
Had dinner at Rick Shores again and once again could not fault anything. Food was great and must Have the bug roll. We had a whole snapper which was amazing also. Every dish was savoured. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and Elizabeth in articulate was really helpful. Make a note to book a table when next on Gold Coast as we have made it a must visit venue each time we head there. And not to mention the view and ambiance which was were great
Amazing kingfish sashimi and the bug rolls are to die for
The only fault I could pick was the fact that my bottle of wine was nowhere near cold enough. Everything else was superb.
A great place for the younger generation to get together, but for couples who want to have a nice evening chatting to each other,no. The tabling wasn't for me, a long Bench type, although plenty of room, I do like to face the person I'm with. The food was good, but a little over priced for what you get. The saving grace for me was the staff, excellent, from walking in through the door to leaving. Having said all of this I would give it a go at lunch time.
AMAZING! The friendliest staff, yummy food and a view you can't beat!
Whenever we come to Rick Shores we have the best time. It's a must whenever we're in Burleigh. The food is consistently beautiful, as are the wait staff, scenery and ambience. We loved it. Thanks!
It was my 40th birthday and the staff at rickshores made it truly magical - could not recommend this place highly enough! Bugrolls are a must do as is the yellow prawn curry- the whole menu is delish (-: We will continue to frequent this beautiful place, it is without a doubt the best restaurant on the Gold Coast xxx
Perfect ambiance, great service, amazing food to celebrate a loved ones birthday.
Unfortunately a bad experience, firstly we were sitting at a bench , ok for breakfast but not for dinner . The waiter was nice but stuffed up our order, when eventually got our food ,but it was average , especially the dessert .
The food, views and ambience were amazing. Can’t wait to go back!
A fabulous experience at Rick Shores including the amazing table overlooking the ocean, great service, awesome food and wine.
Ambience, food was amazing, staff were friendly and helpful, Vista brilliant 👍💕
As always, perfection! Great view, great food and wonderful staff
Good food, good service, great location. Will be back.
With views like this!!! Luckily it’s backed up with lovely, friendly staff & great food. Highly recommend 👌🏻✨
The food was excellent. Enjoyed the wine. The staff were very helpful with picking a wine to go with the food. Service was unbelievably helpful.
Food was a let down, not to the usual standard
your restaurant is stunning.. the food was delicious and your waiters attentive (but they did keep asking us what we wanted before we were ready to order). My one reservation relates to your background music .. I found this rather intrusive, irritating and unnecessary. With vistas like your, any background music is superfluous - and if it's a quiet day I imagine the sound of the sea would be much preferable.
I took my lovely lady here for dinner to celebrate her birthday. Even though we were both a little under the weather with a flu virus we had a wonderful night.From the moment we arrived I knew that I had chosen well.The staff were lovely..very professional and courteous..and the young lady who looked after us could not have been nicer.The food was exquisite...and what can one say about the view? There`s something quite magical about eating a sublime strawberry dessert and watching and listening to the ocean. We will definitely be revisiting this jewel.
Our family and friends dinner at Rick Shores was as beautiful an experience as we always have there. The food was as divine as the view and that’s saying something. The wait staff are so friendly, helpful and speedy.
This is a place worthy of it reputation as one of the best options on the Coast. Optimal location, great food, never failing service and a great buzz. A must try.
Had a great meal with the very best service. Super impressed with our happy friendly waitress, she’s a credit to Rick Shores; wish I could remember her name.
We live in Melbourne but have a house at Sanctuary Cove and make Rick Shores an absolute must to dine whilst in Qld. Their Tempura bug slider is sensational, and their staff attentative and professional, with great cocktails & a view to match 👍. Can only say highly recommend.
Superb in all aspects of dining. Food extraordinary and service fantastic
It’s was an amazing meal and the staff were great!
Without a doubt, one of the GC’s best!
Utterly excellent food in a superb beach view location.
Food was amazing and our waitress was outstanding - thank you
