Rico Bar & Dining
Love the space and the food. Would liked to have sat up higher as was hot where we were. Our waiter was not attentive until he thought a tip might have been on the cards. Not much effort to fill water and even look our way to see if we need anything extra. Vibe is great though and the view amazing.
The service at the restaurant was very poor and really made the dining experience disappointing. Staff were uninformed about the menu and after being told that the tapas would come out staggered we ended up with 12 dishes on our table (for 4 people) with literally no space for our plates. We were also told we could order more food once the tapas came out. Our waitress did not come to see us to take our second order before kitchen closed. In fact she disappeared and the other staff seemed disinterested in clearing our table and offering desserts. With so many quality restaurants to choose from in Brisbane I would not recommend Rico.
Beautiful food. Fantastic service and very reasonably priced.
Dozen oysters for $32! We will definitely go back with all the family!
It is a little noisy but a beautiful view of the river!
It was such an amazing experience! Everything we ate was delicious! Phoebe who served us gave us top quality customer service. She is amazing as she was able to give us information about the food on the menu. We would definitely come back!
payment opportunities arent wide, could not pay for what we each ordered ourselves
Excellent food & amazing cocktails.
Our dinner was amazing and Diego was fantastic we will definitely be back
Great range of tapas and share plates, good service and reasonable value.
The food was amazing. We had oysters 3 ways for entree and calamari. The oysters were delicious and the calamari was the best I think I’ve ever eaten. We shared a paella for main and it was great. Thanks for a memorable lunch.
The food was outstanding and service fantastic. A great menu to select from at very reasonable prices. Highly recommend it. “I’ll be back”
Great service and ambience, great food and great value!
Went here for a midweek work lunch t 1pm and was pleasantly surprised to see the place pretty full. Eggplant fritters and lamb ribs were delicious - bone marrow was served in the bone which was slightly off putting to my guests. Seafood paella was also pretty good. Enjoyed the service style with raised plates. View was great. All in all - great value.
Nice restaurant with great views and good quality food . We would recommend booking earlier than 830pm as our meal did feel a bit rushed with kitchen closing at 9pm and being asked for our dessert choice during the entree !
The food however was excellent , the restaurant was immaculate and the service superb . We would definitely return but book at 730pm next time !
The ambience in the restaurant was very lovely and the view from it was absolutely beautiful! Our waitress was very well informed and polite, providing excellent service throughout the night. We ordered the Vegetable Paella and the Prawn Tapas which were delicious! Only wish there were more Vegetarian options in the Tapas and Entrée sections. Would definitely recommend 100%
Was asked when we arrived who’s birthday was it but no other mention, plenty of empty tables at the window which were still empty when we left two hours later, although set for four would have been nice to have been offered, when we asked what the dessert special of the day was, we’re informed no special today as it’s Saturday? Overall was pleasant enough if just looking for somewhere to eat, but on our experience not a place to return to celebrate a special occasion.
Our group experienced a fantastic dining experience when having lunch at Rico. The service was second to none as was the food. We will return for an evening meal very soon.
Amazing dining experience, food and drinks were good and a nice view of the river and Story bridge.
Outstanding food and great service! I still feel the décor in the main area could bring a little more life but I the quality of the food makes that seem insignificant.
Wine recommended was not Acceptable and was the most expensive Pinot Grigio on menus
Seafood was okay rice was tough.
Had a great tapas and the sangria were 10/10. Very knowledgeable and entertaining waiter
Amazing location, fantastic atmosphere and delicious food. We are now spoilt for choice between Georges, Massimo and now this beautiful restaurant- what a dilemma to have !
Great food - Delicious and great value for money
Good Service - Our waiter was a fun guy but forgot our drinks and extra sauce
Lovely service and food - our 3rd time - we will be back!
I would recommend Rico Bar to friend because the food was exceptional. I would warn them however that the service was not wonderful.
Everything was top notch.
Overall it was good. The only issue was the service as I waited for a long time to order food and getting change.
Can’t beat the setting, service was amazing, drinks were great and the food was beyond expectations especially considering how reasonably priced it was!
Food, service and drinks were all excellent and very reasonably priced. Wasn’t a fan of the music - but I suppose everyone else is so that is no problem!
Food was fine, but the service had a lot to be desired. Took half hour to get our drinks order taken and almost 45 minutes for our food to arrive.
Fabulous fresh flavours in the most stunning of locations! Staff knowledge & service is impeccable especially our waiter Pheobe. Great value for money too. Highly recommended.
Pleasant restaurant in terrific location.....breathtaking views of river, Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point. Service was great at arrival and during our courses with good advice on wines. Took some time to get the account unfortunately as a couple of staff were too busy chatting to notice us waiting (for at least 5 minutes). Minor issue overall and would return.
The waitress was outstanding. Extremely polite. Food was amazing. Overall really enjoyed ourselves. 100% go again.
I’ve eaten at Riccos on three occasions. Overall the food was delicious, the one dish that could be significantly improved is the paella as it lacks in flavour.
Will try the restaurant again in a not so busy time of the year. We found the restaurant extremley loud, however it was just before Christmas. We enjoyed the starters but found the main meals not as good. The shared dessert plate was nice.
Sadly the overall experience was disappointing. Wait staff tried but require a lot more training. Food was average, nothing outstanding. Bar staff were rude/sarcastic and very slow to make a simple drink.
I will try again for a light lunch to see any improvements.
I have been in the hospitality for many years and I found the combination of good food, great staff and friendly service at the perfect level. Lovely ambience, it will be a shame to loose it while the re construction is being completed.
Great Food, Views, Service and everything all-round, highly recommended!
Our annual catch up lunch. Food was outstanding
Great views, great food with friendly and efficient service. Bit too noisy at times. Fantastic value - can't beat it.
We really enjoy our dinner at Rico's the other night and the food was great as usual.
But we were a bit disappointed with the service.
In our opinion a restaurant front of house staff should know all the ingredients in every single dish including dessert.
I think if you want to target the high end of the business your service have to be on point.
Maybe a briefing before service would fix it.
Otherwise you just letting your chef and establishment down.
Our friends were really happy with the food but they commented on the service.
