We were very pleased with our interactions with the staff, especially our waitress, she was five star. Our food was quite delicious and satisfying. We were left wanting to return again to sample more items from the menu. We will make our next visit a lunchtime one, to enjoy the view. The only downside was the noise, which almost killed conversation.

Loved everything about this restaurant, we were very grateful for the umbrella as we could not have sat in that superb position at the front and enjoyed the view or the food, it’s very 🥵. But that curry 🙏🏻 The Bug Bun , the deserts 👏👏

The only criticism I could give was that I had called earlier that day to increase my numbers by one however when we arrived, there was no record of my call nor had the number of people been changed so we had to wait at the bar while the table was set up for the correct number. This was the only small issue otherwise you did an amazing job as always

Rick shores never disappoints. No mater where your sested the view of Burleigh Beach is beautiful. The service is always attentive. Our table server allowed us to try a few wines before purchase. We went with a fantastic Reisling. We opted for the feed me menu. 7 course degustation. The yellow prawn curry and bug rolls are outstanding. Definitley will be back.

The entry from above using the lift enters you through a very inhospitable area. The service was fair as the waiter didn’t even ask if we wanted a drink and new little about the wine list. The food was extremely disappointing the only exception being the bug roll. The kingfish was not totally fresh and unappealing. The prawn curry was more like a soup and was not cooked properly. The masaman was from a can!
The maître de tried to appease us but really was quite inexperienced in handling our issues. The staff dress left a lot to be desired. overall extremely disappointing...great view though!

The food and service at Rick Shores is second to none. From the moment we arrived the wait staff were so attentive. They made sure that we understood the menu and what size portions the items would be. They had great recommendations on what to order and ensured that my glass was never empty. Each dish we ordered was delicious and had a depth of flavour that was worthy of its price. The setting and outlook was fantastic and we attended on a day where the sky and sea was blue the view breathtaking. We had an outstanding dining experience and will definitely be back again soon.

Great food as always. Enjoyed the cocktails more than usual. Fantastic view of course.
The spiced lamb was fantastic with the scorched roti. You should recommend this combo.
Only mild complaint would be the staff tend to congregate in and mill through the path to the toilets. A couple of them would have run into me if I hadn't stopped and fended them off.
Great restaurants have their staff part like the red sea when customers move through choke points. Not play chicken with them.
Please consider.

It was my first time to Rick Shore and I love this place a lot.
I was not sitting by the window, but was at the first row of the bar table. It don't matter though, I still could enjoy the view of the sea outside.
Staff are helpful. Thanks to Elizabeth, she gave me good suggestion on what to eat.
The food, the drink and the service are all great!
By the way, at the night of that day, I watched TV and found that the Australia Chef competition was at Rick Shore on that episode.
Definitely will come back when I visit GC again.

The food was delightful and I can hardly wait to come back to try a few more selections. The cement floors, large open windows, surf pounding and voices reverberating through the room made it quite noisy. We were only 2 but I think if we came with a larger group it would be very difficult to have a conversation across the table. Service was excellent, attentive and helpful without being superior, arrogant or annoying. Thank you
