A lunch at Ricky's is something of a pilgrimage to us.
The setting is quintessential Noosa...relaxed and peaceful. The food is exciting and always interesting. And the service is unobtrusive yet there when you need it. A suggestion that we delay the main course was a great idea...no need to rush this wonderful experience.
Was pleasantly surprised to find a great (Greek) Malagousia on the wine list.
My wife secretly wants to live at Ricky's because it is just such a beautiful setting but will accept making the lunchtime pilgrimage more often as an acceptable alternative.

My brother and I had lunch for my birthday, it was such a beautiful place and great to have some food that had been thoughtfully put together, it was a great way to relax with breathtaking views. We put our phones away and were present to enjoy and take in the dining experience and each others company.

This restaurant is an icon of many years and still simply the best .
The local seafood was sumptuous, the service was delightful,and of course the location is relaxing as well as peacefull .We invited our guests who are international travellers normally ,but with COVID have decided to discover more of our great land. They were very impressed. As always deserves a 5 star rating

What a beautiful dinner and experience!
I spent my birthday dinner here and we decided on the 6 course tasting menu with paired wines.
Our waitress Mel and waiter Andrew were fantastic, both had outstanding knowledge of the menu and paired wines adding that extra personalised value to our experience.
Staff were all friendly and approachable, as well as accommodating due to the current short time frames to dine. Massive compliments to the chefs most of all for producing such high quality dishes with so much time pressure. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend Rickys to all Friends and family to dine and visit! Thank you again to the whole team

Food was quite small served but Tasted amazing.
Restaurant location is absolutely stunning with a river view ,staff service was excellent.
Wine menu was superb and quite extensive.
We had fond memories of this restaurant from visiting a couple of times about 15 years ago and it definitely did not disappoint this time either.
We took our kids and didn’t feel uncomfortable at all.
Definitely recommend going to Ricky’s restaurant but not if your looking for a cheap large serving of food.
Fine dining at its best definitely.

If you are looking for a restaurant with delicious food, beautiful environment, friendly, helpful staff, who go out of their way to make your dining experience exceptional - you found it! As a family of 9 getting together again, and feeling safe enough to enjoy a meal out, was a long awaited treat. Ricky's were careful to adhere to social distancing regulations and so we felt we could relax and enjoy our time together. Our meal was excellent!
