An amazing restaurant with exceptional food in a beautiful setting looking out of the ocean. We had the new ‘tasting menu’ and we were not let down, adding on the big roll is a must though. We’d go back just to eat 10 of those each. The only thing that let us down was the rudeness of one of the staff members but this was quickly made up by the rest of the team who were simply awesome. Whenever someone tells us they are going to the Gold Coast, Rick Shores will be the first thing to come out of my mouth!!

Really enjoyed the experience of lunching at Rick Shores because of the great service, food and the special location of being right beside the ocean at Burleigh. A day to remember!

My business colleagues had only an hour or so available for lunch and some business discussions. Our waiter sorted out our choices for us, the ml was served quickly and without fuss, and we had a very successful meeting, all within the hour.

Really looking forward to my next experience at Rick Shores - a more leisurely lunch, this time with personal company and a glass of wine or two.

This is my 2nd visit to Rick Shores. I booked 2 months prior to my visit. I was very disappointed to be sat at a bench. I mentioned this to staff. I watched as empty tables sat empty for much of my visit. Very disappointing.
Food was great but not as good as 12 months ago

The absolute 'must try' restaurant for any visitor or resident of the Gold Coast. One of our favourites. Unbeatable location coupled with great food and service.

A bit over priced for the food and 2 people are seated at a bench that if you are tall can not fit you legs under

My girlfriend and I dined here in February this year to celebrate her birthday and we had a fabulous night.On arrival we were asked if we would like to have a cocktail at the cocktail bar before dinner and we did just that.The food ,service,atmosphere etc were all wonderful.This time however, when we arrived we were ushered to a bench..which was extremely disappointing.We spent almost $300 on food and wine but honestly, had we been told that we`d be dining at a sushiesque like bench, we would have cancelled our booking.

Great food, amazing service and the best view. The bug roll and yellow curry were my favourite dishes, but everything was delicious. Thank you Lawson and all staff for looking after us! Will definitely be back.

The Bug rolls whilst looking at the ocean is a perfect environment. We also tried some of the curries for the first time. Our favourite was the duck curry and sticky white rice. Took a small group to celebrate a birthday and fathers day. We all loved it and look forward to our next visit. Thanks to the staff for such efficient and friendly service, not to mention the chef, great job. We'll be back

Thank you for such a lovely experience at Rick Shores. From the first moment we sat down confronted by the spectacular view, to the wonderful service and divine food, we were in heaven. We argued all the way home about which course each of us enjoyed the most. All were so damn good. Although no one could go past the bug rolls, I'm sticking with the pork curry. My husband's was the Kingfish sashimi.. Bro-In-Law loved all 3 oysters. And my sister was stuck on the roasted rice dessert. One complaint… it can be hard to get a booking. But we certainly see why. :)

We were very happy with the fabulous food, sensational flavours in every dish that we shared. Best views on the GC to accompany the meal. Bug rolls are a must have.

Having been to rick shores before and had amazing service we were disappointed by the attitude of our particular waitress. It took away from the overall experience. The food did not disappoint though

The Manager Michael Leopold greeted us beautifully, we were taken to superb seats and our Waitress was amazingly helpful. She helped guide us perfectly on how much to order as we were unsure and we weren’t sorry as the food was incredible and we had plenty with nothing wasted!
A fabulous experience- different, exotic and exciting food was thoroughly enjoyed!!
