Delicious food, great service and incredible views and ambience. Make sure to order the bug rolls. There’s a reason they’re so famous - they really are that good!

Again, a first class dining experience at RS. Food and service was excellent and I’d strongly recommend choosing the ‘Feed Me’ menu and let the Chef surprise you!

The reservation showed Open Table - table for two - which meant we were seated at a long bench with others. There was plenty of separation from the diners alongside but it meant I had to turn to speak to my lunch companion. This position gave us a great view of the ocean and Southport high-rise - which was truly spectacular - but I guess I would have preferred a real table for two - so we could have sat opposite each other to talk. So maybe saying Open Table Table for 2 - is a bit confusing maybe you could state it more clearly. The two entrees we ordered were spectacular but because we weren't ravenous we ordered two sides as out mains. The baked cauliflower and the octopus salad with watermelon. I was a bit disappointed in these two sides. The baked cauliflower was OK - but the puree which tasted like more cauliflower was a bit ho hum. The octopus salad was OK too - but the watermelon juice kind of saturated things and made to whole dish seem a bit waterlogged and insipid. Next time I'll stick to the mains and see if I come away feeling happier with the meal. Great venue and lovely, friendly efficient staff.

I heard rave reviews about your restaurant.

The service was amazing.. the restaurant outlook, fantastic. The setting lovely.
The food being sent to other tables looked amazing..
I was reccomended the degustation menu however, it was sadly disappointing (sorry guys) your “signature” bug roll seemed to me more like a churched up “fillet’o’fish”.
Our fresh oysters were warm as opposed to cold... and the flavours with my next dish were welcome however, I was deflated in another non-creative “slider”, this time with deep fried tofu.
The main, curry was sweet. Great flavours although again disappointed with the basic standard of rice and nan bread accompiaments.
Obviously, I have order regret. I heard so many wonderful things about your restaurant and look forward to trying something outstanding but for this time it was just average.

Stunning setting and outlook over the ocean up to Surfers Paradise. An interesting and varied menu with beautifully presented food. Superb staff, knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly.
Great wine list.
It is expensive however.

We were given a gift voucher to your restaurant as a Xmas gift. We could not wait to visit you. We live 8 hours away in the outback and at present are experiencing the worst drought anyone could ever imagine. As a result of this drought we do not have water and to sit and watch the waves coming in was the most amazing experience. It was also a fun night as a couple of little things did not go to a perfect plan at the restaurant (main meal before entrée - plus another little hiccup later) but we saw this as being a bit special because we had a lot of contact with the staff who were so nice to us.
I would like to thank you so much and whenever we get another opportunity to visit Rick Shores we definitely will and will recommend you to anyone wishing to enjoy a quality restaurant. Thanks again.

Love this place. The position is unbeatable, the service friendly and spot on -they go the extra mile and the food never disappoints. Try the bug roll - divine! And yesterday we had the pork hock but needed lots more people to help us eat it! It was delicious with an amazing sauce. We took home the remainder and had it for dinner!

A fabulous evening! The next day I booked another reservation. The atmosphere, service and food were phenomenal. Hailing from Melbourne I have a very high standard when it comes to fine dining and Ricks was nothing short of spectacular. I highly recommend the seafood - it was very very fresh and the cauliflower side with pepita satay! Thanks for a great night.

Overpriced and noisy. Food was not that great, paid $150 for 2 adults and a baby, they didn’t even have chips on the menu. $38 for a prawn curry and it was mainly sauce and maybe one small prawn chopped up. One dish never arrived so we cancelled it after we had eaten all our food, they had given it to the wrong table. Not worth the money.
