This was my first visit to Ricardo's, went based on numerous recommendations from friends and family. It is a lovely, small restaurant, very eclectic, colourful and mediterranean in design. The food was very good, had a small Caesar salad and the special that night which was Prawn, shrimp and scallop curry over basmati rice. The food was good, hot and... More

We went to Ricardo's last Saturday. We had a couple of birhtdays to celebrate. We have been going to Ricardo's for about 8 years now. Always this has been a favorite, however the last few visits really have been subpar. The appetizer we ordered was the curried mussels. Very tasty as always. My wife ordered the Lobster pasta dish. Unseasoned... More

There were three of us and it was a busy Sunday evening on a long weekend, so I can forgive putting us at a table for two with an extra chair. But the table was unsteady and so was my chair, so dinner consisted of constantly trying to find space for each item and stop our drinks from falling over.... More

We were staying at Holiday Park resort right beside Ricardo's so walked over for dinner one night. It was about 35 C so we thought we would sit inside but the AC was not very strong so went out onto the patio. It was warm but bearable. The food was good but not spectacular. The service was good but our... More

My husband took me here for my 30th birthday and he couldn't have made a better choice. The atmosphere was fantastic and the great service started as soon as we arrived. We had the bruchetta, arugula salad, gnocchi and jambalaya - all was amazing! We will be back!

We have spent the past 40 plus years in the Kelowna area. During that time we had only been to Ricardo's once - about three years ago. It had been good at that time. We have special friends that we were looking to treat out to a nice meal and thought - why not try Ricardo's again. Great choice. Being... More

Ricardo's has long been one of our favourite restaurants in the Okanagan and we have been loyal customers every summer, always bringing guests with us, always tipping generously. August 4, 2013 was our last visit - not entirely our choice! We went as a group of 9 to celebrate a family birthday which we reserved on open table. We know... More

My wife and I went to Ricardo's for our anniversary. Service was very good, wine also very good. I has the steak with mushroom. Steak was perfectly cooked, muschrooms a little too oily. My plate was bathing in oil. But flavours were there and I enjoyed it. My wife had the lobster pasta, she liked it although it could have... More

Great service and good atmosphere. Loved the olives and amazing muscles. It was so tough to pick the pasta since everything coming from the kitchen looked great. We liked this place so much that we bought a gift certificate for our friends that we stayed with.
