Our seating by the large open windows so close to the rolling surf was a wonderful experience. Service was great. Food very nice. Felt a little rushed with the two hour time frame.

I was very pleasantly surprised at the table we got when we arrived at Rick Shores. Was a beautiful corner table, over-looking the sea. Breath-taking!
Food was excellent! Stand outs were the oysters with thai vinaigrette and the pan-fried salmon with XO sauce. Great pairing with the Gruner Veltiner we chose.
The waitress who was looking after our table was also lovely! Made the dining experience more enjoyable. Greta pace of food being served to the table.
Will definitely be back!

A very nice lunch, seated right at the window overlooking the surf which was about 4 metres away. Meal was delicious and served quickly but $40 for yellow curry and rice was over priced. The kerage chicken, and squid and herb salad made a beautiful 2 course meal and was better value than the curry. Waiter was very attentive almost too much so, he refilled our water 5 times. I loved the view but as it was midday the sun shone directly in on our table and my wine became hot, my right arm was sun burnt and I desperately needed my sunglasses as the glare was intense. Stunning location but check the position of your table.

Not badly priced for portion sizes, staff were friendly and had good knowledge about the dishes they were serving, wait staff took special care when dealing with any allergy concerns.
Restaurant needs clearer/more signage as to where the entry is located for first-time diners

Brilliant space and atmosphere and the Moreton bay bug rolls were clouds of heaven! Tamarind Pork belly curry on our set menu sent us all on a sugar high , the sweetness masking any tamarind tang and a bit gloopy in texture- some contrasting vege crunch would have perhaps have lifted the dish but the overpowering sweetness killed the dish for me. Shane was absolutely fantastic, super helpful and efficient and friendly even on such a busy night. Great recommendations re wine and the set menu was mostly great for us. Thanks!

We had the front table - sun was setting, moody magical setting - then came the food and wine. Fabulous place to take outsiders. More wine by the glass with more varieties would be great.

From the warm welcome at the door to the table relocation by our lovely waitress, later in the evening to better experience the view of the ocean, I couldn't have chosen a more amazing restaurant for my brothers birthday dinner.
Will be returning for a lunch experience in May..
Can't wait.. :)

We enjoyed the ‘feed me’ menu and loved every single plate of food. The hype about the signature dish (bug roll) is all true. Nice to see lots of super-food non alcoholic beverages for the health conscious too.
