    Great views & great food. Good amount of food in smallest banquet, finished full. I’m a big eater. Although not on menu, they made my banquet fully vegan. Extra points for this!

    "Rick Shores restaurant on the Gold Coast delivered an unforgettable dining experience that left us utterly impressed. From start to finish, everything was impeccable. The service, led by PJ, was exceptional - attentive, personable, and truly went above and beyond to ensure our evening was perfect. The view, undoubtedly the best on the Gold Coast, provided a breathtaking backdrop to our meal, elevating the entire experience. As for the food, each dish was a masterpiece, beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. Every aspect of our visit exceeded our expectations, and we're already counting down the days until we can return. Rick Shores is a true standout, and PJ's outstanding service only added to its charm. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a memorable dining experience on the Gold Coast."

    We went for a Sunday lunch with friends and had an amazing experience. Our waiter was funny attentive and the food flowed perfectly. Unfortunately we attended again on Friday night and it was extremely disappointing. Over 3 hours to eat. Food came out after long pauses. We had to constantly ask for our wine, the steak was tough. Nothing was explained when meals were dropped like the first time. A long disappointing dinner that we took our daughter and husband to after our fantastic initial experience. Wont be rushing back.

    Our waiter PJ was very knowledgeable and made our Sunday lunch very enjoyable, the food was superb and always has been each time we visit. We had a great selection from the alacarte menu for our table of 6 - it was so hard to decide what was best - the Moreton bay bug rolls and barramundi were some of our favourites! Only downside was it was quite noisy with a full restaurant, but the food, drinks and views outweighed this. Dinner we've enjoyed in the past, has definitely had great views up the Gold Coast, so it's a must to celebrate with visitors!!!

    We have enjoyed Rick Shores on several occasions and this was the second visit this week. So it is obviously a favourite of ours for the beautiful venue, happy and professional service and great food. But last night surpassed previous visits with a great young staff member looking after us ( she was exceptional) and perfect food. The whole baby barramundi was delicious!!
