Beautiful view of sun setting over the river. Food well prepared and presented. Heavy seafood influence - good for husband, less choice for me. Eye fillet steak delicious, husband thoroughly enjoyed seafood bisque. Service friendly and attentive, without being intrusive.

Have been wanting to dine here! Forever!
We arrived by ferry.
The food experience far exceeded our expectations. The mix of flavors was exquisite, the coconut meringue dessert was delicious.
The staff were professional and still friendly.
Awesome experience

Serving an alcoholic drink to my pregnant partner masked an otherwise lovely experience.

Was the complimentary mocktail enough to make up for that mistake?

Been going to Ricky’s / Ricky Ricardo’s sporadically for 17yrs. This time it was very noisy as we were seated inside near a large table with people shouting over each other to be heard. ( including us!!) Initially service was a bit gruff but our waitress relaxed a bit and became more attentive and friendly (probably couldn’t hear us!!) Great food and wine, and a killer Passionfruit soufflé dessert. Will definitely keep going back but next time I will ask to be seated in the quieter area away from the big tables. The place still has a great Vibe.
Cheers

Sorry to hear on this occasion your experience may have not been to our usual standard regarding initial service. Please do ask next time to be seated in the inside area. Looking forward to seeing you return again to Rickys. Warm regards, Renee.

I had been recommended to visit Ricky’s by friends with discerning taste so was very disappointed with our experience . The Morton bay bugs were flavourless . The seafood in the bisque was not plentiful and the bug was overcooked And other seafood tired . Perhaps Sunday evening Is not the best time to visit .
A shared dessert soufflé was also disappointing As overcooked .

We had dinner here for the first time and have only good things to say.
Arriving by water taxi at sunset was a unique experience for our friends visiting from the UK.
The food was fabulous, the drinks flowed and the service was top notch.
