Exceptional service, we were offered a seat next to the ocean and were looked after so well. The food was divine and the drinks were amazing!

We enjoyed a great afternoon at Rock Shores for my hubby’s birthday. The staff were so attentive and accomodating (we had our baby girl with us). Thank you to the entire team for a memorable day 🎂

Always find the staff very professional and one of the very few places where the service matches the food which is excellent.

Beautiful, carefully conceived dishes.
The bug roll is a must have but the lobster dumpling is not far behind.
Great place for lunch with those magnificent views.

Food is very spicey but beautifully presented. So if you do not like spicey choose carefully. My family had a wonderful time but sadly I was freezing all night as I did not dress warmly enough to be sitting beside open doors. However the location of the table was great and next time I think I will book a luncheon date! Still a great night!

The restaurant is busy, and a bit noisy like many others when busy. Social distancing was non-existent, and diners allowed to wander around without masks. The service was friendly, courteous, and professional. Our entrees were outstanding. Our mains were equally disappointing. My Barramundi was cold to luke warm and tasteless. My wife's meal was below standard for the price - $40 for 4 prawns. The rice was nothing special, and over-priced. The wine list is not available on the website before booking in. I can see why. The cheapest bottle was around $60. It may well be excellent boutique wine, but many people have tastes that can be well catered for with $20 to $30, (even with the mark-up).

At first a little concerned where we sat which was up at the bench seating. There was enough room between other guests. It was a nice place to sit to oversee what was happening in the restaurant. We were offered a window seat later in the night but were happy to stay where we were. Next time I will book a seat to the right side of the room for a better view.
Your staff are so professional. Welcoming and attentive.
The menu was so interesting and mouthwatering just to read
We shared 4 starters, one main, 1 side dish and 1 dessert. All were a taste sensation. Kept thinking we needed to order more but was pleasantly surprised with every new course. Cocktails and wine list a great read and some different wines for a Barossa couple to ponder.
This meal was up there with the best dining/eating experience we have had. We recently dined in Sydney for our 40th wedding anniversary at A’Mare and raved about the Italian experience. Now we rave about this amazing seafood delight of Rick Shores. All includes hearing and seeing the sea. What more does one want at the Gold Coast?

Food was delicious but the waiter could have explained the menu which we were told (after ordering) that it’s mostly meant to be shared. We’ll know better next time. Also even though he was very nice he seemed rushed ( it was very busy) and continually splashed wine and water on the table when pouring it. Beautiful view but because the windows were closed it was incredibly noisy and hard to hear ourselves talk.

I tried the set menu, and had higher expectations because I had to book weeks in advanced. The food was good but very average. The main meal was a duck curry, but it was cold and the meat was overcooked. Nothing new or special. The other dishes were quite average too.
