We visited with a group of 8 ladies. It was a magnificent part of our long weekend away. We loved every single bit of the food, wine and ambience. Sitting by the River, with the sea breeze for lunch was just Stunning. Thank you very much.

Although we had to wait for our table, we enjoyed a drink in your bar, which was a lovely experience. We did find our waitress to be a bit pushy and ended up ordering way too much food, rather than trusting our instincts. We left a lot food on our plates and walked away feeling like a stuffed pig.
Otherwise fabulous night. Will return again and will know better when we order our food next time.

We have dined at Ricky’s a few times, and this time did not disappoint. We were welcomed after arriving a little early, and were happy to sit in the bar for a few drinks first. There was a group from a wedding reception in the bar already and they did not disturb us at all. In fact, it was quite entertaining.

The lovely Sally showed us to our table and we then scanned through the menu. Settling on a Seafood entree and a bottle ow Shaw and Smith, we settled in for an evening of excellent service and amazing food.

Ricky’s did not fail to impress, and I am sure we will be back when we return to Noosa.

Thank you to the staff at Ricky’s for being so lovely.

Rickys never fails to deliver outstanding food and service and this time was no exception. I am always completely confident that my gluten free requirements are met with diligence and understanding, most of the menu is accessible to me and the kitchen are always willing and able to make minor adjustments where necessary.
Even with a large wedding party in the restaurant, our dining experience was as personal, attentive and exceptional as always.

We had a wonderful time, seated outside during sunset. It was the perfect time and the perfect table. We had the marvellous James (the sommelier) serve us and we chose the 6-course menu accompanied with wine. His vast knowledge of wines to match the tastes of the course was exceptional. Highly recommend eating at this restaurant. Great service. Great view. Great night.

Brilliant lunch at Ricky's. We had the seafood experience for 2, everything on the platter was delicious. Cocktails were great and all the starters we tried were awesome. I could happily eat the cob loaf with smoked salt and butter every day!
Pricey for lunch, but well worth it for the view and the amazing food.

Great food, professional staff and a gorgeous location.

I used to dine at Ricky's many, many years ago and until the recent marketing campaign had forgotten about the venues at Noosa Wharf. So, I decided to have my birthday lunch at Ricky's recently and was very impressed.

We had drinks at the bar and were then ushered to our table under the front windows which gave us a front row seat to the water and all of the activities along the Noosa River.

I am looking to gather together a group of friends and head back to Ricky's for dinner one weekend soon.

Placed in a squished section of the restaurant for 2 high chairs and a pram. I booked months in advance with the requests so we were catered. The waitress was so so lovely. Food fairly average for the price. Swordfish was overcooked. Mussels had beards and no fresh pepper was offered.

Hi there. We had a really lovely time in terms of atmosphere and my own meal was particularly amazing however my two girlfriends who ordered the same thing were really unhappy and can’t stop talking about how poor it was. I insisted they say something but they wouldn’t. Basically they had the Moreton bay bug with mussels and the bug was tiny and not worth $44. I don’t know if there is anything we can do after the fact but it really put a dampener on a reunion between all of us. I don’t like to complain; this time though I feel I have to mention it for your future reference as being the most highly recommended restaurant in Noosa it didn’t live up to that and my friends coming to town to stay with me and it was me who took them there (I have never been to Ricky’s since living here for a couple of years) I was excited and it made me feel a bit embarrassed because they are from Melbourne and know good food. Sorry don’t want to make a fuss but I had to write a review on this experience. Many thanks.

We have been going to Ricky's since it opened and my daughter had her wedding there 2 years ago. Only criticism would be that we are treated as first time guests each time and I have probably dined there 30 times

Ricky's was our number 1 Restaurant in Noosa for years however service has gone down in the last few visits.(including our wedding there). We have been disappointed in recent visits and would not come back under the current management. I would recommend Sails or Thomas Corner over Ricky's...Real shame as great location however hope to see changes in their service to bring it back as a top pick in Noosa in the future.

Weekend away with friends . They had a young baby which I advised in advance about. High chair was waiting at the table and we had a beautiful view which was very appreciated.
Service was attentive and knowledgeable.
From the moment we arrived in the bar and enjoyed cocktails to when we left after our beautiful meal the evening was so enjoyable .
Highly recommend .
