What a wonderful experience - view out to the surf and ocean, great atmosphere and the service was A+. Food was delish - Moreton Bay bug roll; Octopus; sticky pork belly and the dry fried beans are the best ever - would go back for those alone! If you haven't been - GO!

Everything was great, food, service and view. One dish was forgotten but swiftly bought out.
Unfortunately quite noisy to hear conversation at the table even for a small group of 4.
Overall food and service was excellent.

Rick Shores has the Gold Coast’s premiere location right on the beach. The ambience is perfect. The food is imaginative with a seafood focus to complement the location.
We chose to have a number of appetisers rather than a large main meal. Our only complaint was that they all came out at once so the last one was cold by the time we ate it. We did tell our waitress that was our plan but didn’t think we would have to explain that we wanted them a little staggered rather than indulging in a feeding frenzy.

We loved the food. Sheridan was an excellent staff member & should be highly commended for her service. She was aware it was our first time at Rick Shores and took the time to walk us through both the food & drinks menu for our selection. The bug roll was divine! Sheridan's service made it a night to remember.
The only negative was there was a spare window table for two (we were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary) & when I asked if we could sit there, I was told it was already booked. We were there for 2 hours & no one sat at that table. It was a glorious night & sitting by the window would have been a highlight. All things said & done, we still had a wonderful night.

Good place for lunch but at night the weather and sea spray can be distracting

It was very difficult to find the restaurant, due to poor signage. Booked a table for 2 at the window but was sat on a bar style bench with other people next to us on the same table. After complaining to staff, they manage to put me in front of the window which was good. Food was ok, portion was good but flavour was too Asian influenced. Will may recommend lunch time instead of dinner as the view is stunning

A front row seat with a magnificent view started lunch off very well. The service from Pete was amazing and he recommended a great choice of food.
Everything we ordered was fresh and beautifully presented and delicious.

Food was absolutely delicious! The serves are generous and made to share, but especially the vegetables so definitely aim to share those with a few.

Feel like cattle. 1.5 hour bookings so everything rushed and mistakes made. Wrong cocktail delivered but told it was the correct one by drinks waitress-waiter then saw it and said it wasn’t right. Staff seem way over worked. Food all very spicy so has a sameness to it. No explanation of food except on delivery to table when it was recited at 100 miles an hour and was incomprehensible.
No specials available. Not fine dining when you compare to comparably priced restaurants.

Food was to die for, the view was perfect, service was just right (staff didn't hover and annoy us, but were there when we needed something).

Honestly, cannot recommend Rick Shores enough, we will be back!

If you are in Burleigh do yourself a favour and visit Rick Shores.

Service and food was perfect. Highly recommend it and they were extremely accommodating for a large group with children . The banquet was more than enough food and the variety satisfied everyone’s palette.

We love sitting up at the central bar overlooking patrons to the outstanding view. Perfect for 2

This is one of my go-to restaurants (even though it’s an hour away!)

Fabulous table right next to ocean. service amazing. Very busy time of year so restaurant was very noisy. Food fantastic , except crab toast. Toast too thick and avocado and bland. Overshadowed crab. Needed punch of flavour. All other food outstanding. Highly recommend visiting here.

Excellent location right onto the sand at beautiful Burleigh Heads. Fine food from the Asian Fusion menu. Well trained staff who cope with idiosyncratic diners.
Negative was the noise and the choice of tuneless house music.
