I love the food at Ricky's and would eat there several times when I'm next in Noosa. The wait staff are polite and courteous and service is pretty good.

Good quality food, even so probably a little over priced particularly $21 for water? Used to paying a set per head cost for sparkling but to keep bringing us more bottles and refilling our glasses seemed to get us to drink more. Service good, if a little too overbearing.
No regrets but probably won’t return as prefer the other fine dining options in Noosa.

Great location but noise carries easily if there are noisy parties and you want to enjoy a quiet dinner. Perhaps request a table outside. Had the degustation/tasting menu. They accommodated my gluten intolerant friend seamlessly. Lovely spread of different proteins and complements. Loved the souffle. The different elements on this dish were zingy, zesty and refreshing. Staff were fantastic, warm, lovely and attentive. Would come back again to choose from the a la carte.

The food and environment was amazing, however service-wise the wine was spilt a few times and the waitress walked away on a few occasions when we still had menu-wine queries. I don't think this was intentional, but it was a little disconcerting!
We visit Noosa nearly twice a year and we make Ricky's a priority, having celebrated our wedding here more than a decade ago! We do enjoy returning.

We had not been at Ricky’s for some time! There had been mixed reports but we had decided it was time to have lunch at Ricky’s ...... we were not disappointed and in fact enjoyed a lovely lunch with our friends. Friendly yet professional service, good food and wine made for a great experience. Although not an inexpensive experience it is certainly good value for money.

An unforgettable night at Ricky's for Halloween 2020 as we lost power due to an electrical blackout thanks to a powerful storm, and service was halted for 15 minutes halfway through our tasting menu dinner. Full credit to the kitchen and floor staff at Ricky's as they didn't miss a beat, with food back on the table as soon as the lights came back on. Our second ever visit, in as many months, and absolutely blessed to be able to dine here in a stunning location, with unbelievably tasty food and warm and wonderful staff. We had a Brazilian waiter both times who helped with wine choices and was a lot of fun. Ricky's is an institution for a reason.

We were really looking forward to going to Ricky's as they had a Tasting Menu that suited our palettes to a tee. Unfortunately it was really that, a tasting! The food that we had on the menu whilst was delicious and left us wanting more and couldn't wait for the next course, we left hungry and dissapointed. Had of the final 2 main courses been double the size of what was served this would have been adequate for the money spent. Whilst I'd like to return to try a normal size main, I won't be going back in a hurry as there are other great restuarants in Noosa that won't leave us hungry after a night out.

We will say that the service was fantastic and drinks were topped up or offered again when glass was running low. 10/10 for this and thank you to the lovely lady looking after us that night.
