Rickys River Bar and Restaurant
Food was great and staff were very friendly and accommodating. It was a very warm and humid day. We had a table in the sun and were able to move to another table. But we would have preferred air-conditioning which would have helped with the overall enjoyment of the dining experience. The location, food experience and staff were excellent!
I was a little disappointed that no staff noticed that I drank only a little of my rather large cocktail. There was nothing wrong with it, but I just didn't like it.
Fantastic! We arrived by water taxi (thx Richardo) and were met by staff and take to our table located within the body of the Restuarant. The lively “Mel” looked after us. Mel answered all of food questions was able to help with her our experience with the menu. The atmosphere was fantastic and we were made feel very special (everyone seemed the same) We enjoyed the meal and have commented to others that it may gave been the “best” taste and quality “freshness” that we have ever enjoyed. (We are well travelled both domestically and internationally). When we left the restaurant, again the staff walked us back to their adjoining jetty where young Jonah helped us aboard the Gondola for a very enjoyable, scenic ride home. Thanks to all. We’ll see you again next time.
Great food and great service but shame they charge a credit card fee since the prices are up there anyways
Just include it in the price of food.
Amazing food. Anyone that eats at Ricky’s won’t be disappointed 😊
Lovely setting. Staff make you feel welcomed and not rushed. Food was fabulous. Really enjoyed our lunch experience
The experience was exceptional - delicious food, lovely ambiance and delightful service.
Amazing food and views ! Lobster bisque and tina were delicious.
Thanks for taking the time to write your review HelenP, that is great to see. I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed the Lobster bisque and found the tuna delicious. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon. Warm regards, Renee
Had a wonderful evening here. Great table service except for the gentleman who showed us to our table initially.
Thank you MelissaD for your review of Rickys. I am pleased to hear you found the table service great. It is unfortunate to hear you of your initial interaction. I will follow up with our team. Thank you again for choosing to dine at Rickys and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Warm regards, Renee.
We had a fantastic night, great food, excellent service & beautiful views, of course until it poured rain:)
Thank you AnnieJ for your 5 stars! That is great to see. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon and sorry about the rain! Warm regards, Renee.
Ricky’s food and setting was impressive. We had a lovely seat right over the canal and the service was exceptional and food was extremely tasty. I particularly enjoyed the Morton baby bugs !! The butter sauce was simple but all that was required and complimented with some tasty fresh hot bread. Ricky’s is a must for any visit to Noosa !!
Thank you ElizaM for your review of Rickys, it is so lovely to hear of your feedback on your recent dining experience. It is a lovely spot to be seated water front on Noosa River.

The service was slowish. Appeared to be under staffed for the number of lunch time diners.

Excellent ambiance, food and service. Wine list could be better , [and better value], but overall had a most enjoyable lunch.
Easy parking a bonus, especially during school holidays.

Lovely outlook.Service and staff were very good.
Disappointed with our meals. The fish had too much butter and made it soggy and oily.
For the price we expected better.
Thank you Maria for your review. I am very pleased to hear you found the view lovely and staff & service friendly. I am sorry to hear you found the fish dish not to your liking on this occasion. I do hope you will give us another chance in the future and I will speak with our chef regarding your review. Warm regards, Renee.
We had very good experience - we did find the bar noisy but that’s nothing to do with Rickys just a noisy party there - we live in Melbourne and always come for dinner while there - thank you for a very lovely night - see you next time we are in Noosa xx
Thank you MickB for your review of Rickys. I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed your dinner at Rickys and you always visit us when here. We do look forward to seeing you again when next in Noosa. Warm regards, Renee.

Amazing.. flying back from Tasmania to try the rest of the menu
Thanks EmmaB for your review of Rickys, we'd love to see you again soon to try the rest of the menu! Warm regards, Renee.
Having never been to Ricky’s before and having no idea what to expect I was stunned by the location/view, ambiance and tankard of the dining experience. The service was amazing and I will definitely be going back there when in Noosa again (more than once).
We go to rickys on the same day every year for our anniversary , 25th this time but I do wonder why they ask what we are there for as it is never acknowledged!
We did have to pour our own wine as no one came near us unless to take our order.
In saying this, it’s our favourite holiday booking and we will keep coming back
Thank you for choosing to celebrate your anniversary at Rickys every year. I am sorry to hear on this occasion that it may have not been known to your waiter that you were celebrating your anniversary. If you could please let me know the name used for your reservation, and I will ensure it is noted for future bookings. I am pleased to hear you find Rickys your favourite holiday booking and we do look forward to your return. Warm regards, Renee.
Loved our wedding anniversary at Rickys. We have had so many special occasions at Ricky's over many years now and have never left disappointed. Thank you.
Thank you Alan for your lovely review of Rickys, and for continuing to return to our restaurant. I am so pleased to hear of your feedback and I will share with our team. Thank you for your continued support. Warm regards, Renee.
Alway excellent service and food at Rickys, and who could ask for a better location for a long lunch

Perfect for our last night in noosa!! Beautiful Restaurant, we will be back!!
Brilliant food! A little over priced for drinks.
Great service and food. The overall restaurant was fantastic
Great atmosphere, food and service, I’d highly recommend this restaurant
If you want to feel like a rock star for a few glorious hours and you’re close to Noosa, book a table at Ricky’s River Bar and Restaurant. Set right on the gob smackingly gorgeous Noosa River, Ricky’s gets everything right. Smart linen napery; friendly, professional staff; high-end, tropical luxe decor; fresh, delicious food; great drinks list all served up with that stunning view. Catch a ferry and channel your inner rock star. Sunglasses essential.
Still in the Top 3 restaurants for food quality in Noosa and a stunning location!
Loved everything but our spanish mackeral mains were not 5 star more 3.5 but the rest was sublime.
We found the entire experience disappointing, especially considering Ricky's made the top 100 best restaurant list in QLD recently. The food was good, but not great; presentation was also good; food lacked flavour and depth. My favourite dish was the side dish of brocolini with an amazing garlic sauce.
Given the time of year we expected the restaurant to be busy however, the ambience was overly noisy and given the number of tables within the small restaurant, we felt claustrophobic. Although we booked several months in advance (requesting a water view table), we were seated within the main thoroughfare to the kitchen also making our experience less than relaxed. Staff were helpful and friendly.
Good food, although not the fine dining experience we are used to; probably wouldn't return.
