“Great good, service and ambience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Have yet to have a bad experience. Food & Service are excellent! Nicole and Rico make me feel right at home & special every time I come. Whether it's with my mom, my girlfriends, my husband and my 1yr old daughter. Please come out and try if you haven't, an amazing experience. Been coming for 3 yrs now. Recommend the grilled veggies, jumbo stuffed shrimp and turkey meatballs, among many other items.

“Wonderful experience - food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We visited Rico's in the village and were extremely pleased with the entire experience. As first time guests both of our servers took the time to ensure we understood how to order so that we had the right amount of food. They also adjusted the portions so that it would work well for a party of four (this helped us avoid the unpleasantness of 4 people trying to figure out how to share 3 of the delicious crab cakes). We had the Olives (very tasty), 4 "main" tapas plates and a pair of desserts and all agreed that it was just enough. If you want an intimate location for your meal, I would suggest making a reservation and asking for one of the rooms on the upper floor.

“Best Tapas in Airdrie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Rico's is an intimate and inviting restaurant. The food is prepared fresh and has the most unique flavors and the service is always friendly and prompt. Wine pairing seems to be one of Rico's fine points to add flavor to both the meal and the wine. Four or five tapas is enough for a meal for two. All aspects of a fine restaurant come together in this cozy 100 year old house!

“Best Restaurant in Airdrie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We love Rico's. The food is to die for. It is a tapas restaurant, so you order a few different items. Everything is delicious. If we want to go out for a special dinner this is where we go, but we have decided that we need to treat ourselves more often.
