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!

Thank you Catherine for taking the time to write your review. I am so pleased to hear you found the food great and the staff friendly. I am glad to hear you were able to move tables on the day and the staff were able to assist. With our restaurant being located right on the water, we do enjoy river breezes however it has been particularly humid over the last few weeks. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon, warm regards, Renee.

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.

I will be sure to pass your feedback onto our team. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon. 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 !!

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

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.
