What a great dining experience. Amazing food while sitting in a beach theatre !
Absolutely fantastic as always!! And the view is to die for ....
WOW!!! The food was amazing. Could not fault the entire experience. This restaurant is one of the best I have ever been to. The location is simply breathtaking - right on the beach front. The service was excellent, staff were friendly, attentive, and timed the courses to perfection. The decor of the restaurant is tastefully minimalist, and classy. The spacing around each table was great, so you weren't sitting close to other parties, and the tables were big enough to place everyone comfortably - they have thought of everything. And the food - OMG! the food was delicious, and presented with fun and flair. I would dine there every day of the week, and weekend. A must, for every Gold Coaster, and visitor.
Fabulous venue, amazing food, delicious cocktails. Thank you again for great memories.
Set menu - Well prices & very filling. Amazing flavours. Definitely booking to eat there again.
Magnificent views. The food was excellent, great flavours.
Service was very good, very prompt and nothing was a problem.
We will be back.
Absolutely brilliant , service and food exceptional
Beautiful atmosphere, excellent service and food. 100% would recommend
Great food and a wonderful venue. Hope to be back soon.
Great views and value for money for the food. Probably would have reduced the amount of food on the set menu as there was so much! But really delicious overall
Must do restaurant! Spectacular location, effortless, professional service, delicious asian inspired menu and great cocktails! What's not to love? Oh and those bug rolls...seriously!
Dined here with friends for a mate’s 50th birthday. We were given a table overlooking Burleigh beach, and the service was attentive, but not intrusive. We were a bit concerned about the set menu offered, but the restaurant catered for all dietary needs without a fuss, and we all enjoyed sharing each of the high quality dishes listed on the set menu. The drinks menu was vast and offered a good selection of wine by the glass, and/or bottled wine. The only downfall was the dessert which was nothing to get excited about. But overall a very enjoyable dining experience
Overall it was an amazing night. Initially it was overly loud as we seated with a large rambunctious group in front of us - we could barely hear each other. They then got their phone torches out when it came time to split the bill which was an added annoyance. The food, cocktails and service made up for it after they all left.
The only down was the acoustic . There was a big table close to us and all talking at the same time . It looks like the room needs something to absorb the noise . But overall was a fantastic dinner , food and view were amazing
Not our first and hopefully not our last visit. Brilliant food and care by the wait staff.
A fantastic afternoon and a highlight of our family holiday!
3rd time I have been to Rick shores and I must admit was very disappointed, my table was booked for 8:30 didn’t get a table until 9. The set menu looked very inviting however when the food started to arrive I was very disappointed with the quality and and the quantity. For $90 a head I expected a lot more. We did not get a whole barramundi as advertised we were lucky to get 2 pieces of soft crab shell each drinks were taking over half an hour to be delivered.
The food and service were amazing! It was a little loud but the only thing that really let it down was the bathrooms. They were not in keeping with the restaurant. They were basically dirty, public toilets with overflowing bins.
Great atmosphere, best GC location, efficient and professional staff, food was exceptional!
rick shores always delivers! amazing food & cocktails, professional service and the best view.
The $89 set menu was fantastic! SO MUCH FOOD! Loved it
Always a spectacular experience. My fave place on the GC. Excellent food, amazing service, and wonderful location.
Great restaurant! Amazing vibes- Elizabeth our waitress was possibly the best table waiter around! Will be going back very soon.
Fabulous venue, awesome location, amazing food (as always). Just the thought of the Bug Roll makes my mouth water. Can't wait to go back again.
This is an annual event for our group and one we look forward to all year. Friends from three states and catch up for two weeks holiday at the beach. A lunch sans husbands and children is sacrosanct.
On a sunny day it is to beat a view like the one offered from our corner table overlooking the ocean. From the moment the maître d’ greeted us we felt welcomed and our patronage valued. All of the staff are polite, helpful and incredibly attentive. Oysters two ways were delicious and then we settled in for a “Covid 19 set menu”.
Still unsure why a pandemic dictates this, and no previous al la carte however, the food did not disappoint. Soft shell crab was amazing and the barramundi 11/10. The bug rolls are a must - we can not pin it down as to what makes them so incredibly moorish- the in-house made soft sweet brioche bun, the fresh bug or the perfectly cooked lightly battered meat. Possibly the mayonnaise which has piece of bug blended through it.
Food allergies / sensitivity are not an issue, and seperate dishes with onion/ garlic removed and constructed beautifully and, without prejudice. Dare I suggest two were better than the covid 19 food...
Cocktail menu was FABULOUS. We started with a mojito and began working out way through their extensive list. Can definitely recommend you try at least one before you commence your meal as ALL were perfectly suited for a meal in summer at the beach.
Yes, we may have tried more than one, however we kept “tasting notes” and narrowed down our favourites to :
Summer 1- Rhubarb Ginger Gin, lemoncello, mango and egg whites
Summer 3- Applewood Coral Gin, Creme de peche, lemon and violette
Summer 6 - winds cutlass gin, grapes, lime and Thai basil
The only reason I haven’t given 5 stars as we felt as per previous visits, the dessert let them down. Pretty - yes. Tasty - yes. Wow factor- mmmm no.
However that should not stop you from enjoying a meal at this must have holiday destination restaurant.
Spectacular view, food and drinks!! A must do if you are on the Gold Coast
Best review, friendly staffs but poor food experience
Exceptional service with a outstanding view, the staff couldn’t do enough for us, as we traveled from WA, we will definitely return hopefully sooner rather than later!
Beautiful setting to have a delicious dining experience!
Quality of food and service at Rick Shores is excellent!
Just a fun place to go with good food for the family
The most delicious food, exceptional service, unbeatable views. A perfect dining experience.
Amazing food and the service was second to none. The location can't be beaten with the waves almost breaking on the edge of the restaurant. Highly recommend visiting the restaurant!
Excellent food - every meal was amazing. The service was fantastic and the location is the absolute best.
Was fantastic extremely happy with the service and the food.
Excellent set menu with a very good selection of starters served.
Will be back soon.
