“Possibly the best in Noosa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Ricky's never fails! It delivers over and over again, year after year.
Great service, first class food and great location.
I cant fault Ricky's.
Even in peak season they can still turn out first class service and food.
Tapas awesome, The spanner crab linguine mouth watering and the snapper is the best I've eaten.

I wish you were in Sydney!

“Fabulous start to the New Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We went to the early sitting of the New Years Eve gala dinner with our daughter, son in law and two grand daughters, rising eight and six. The setting right on the river was beautiful and we were lucky enough to have a table on the outside edge of the room. The kids were happy making friends in the play park just alongside, giving the adults a much appreciated time to relax. The food was just beautiful, four very clever courses, lots of great taste experiences to enjoy,great variety of fresh ingredients. The whole dining experience was skilfully managed with friendly and attentive service. Donna was the consummate maitre d' stopping at each table to make sure that diners had everything they needed. We took the children home after dinner, but my daughter and son in law stayed on to boogie the last of 2013 away. They were most impressed with the entertainment.

“Never fails to impress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We were back in beautiful Noosa for 10 days in November. During that time we visited Ricky’s (our absolute must do) three times – twice for drinks, once for a very leisurely, four hour lunch.

As I’ve said before, Ricky’s never fails to impress.

It was a beautiful sunny Noosa day. We had possibly the best table in the restaurant. We loved the scallop tarts to start. I had the spatchcock which was absolutely fantastic, the Princess had the snapper which she loved. We shared the petit fours for desert, and it was all washed down with some fabulous wine. We decided we’d move to the Bar area right near the water, and enjoyed a couple of beverages there too. A fabulous lunch, with wonderful service from Paul and Jason.

Went back for pre-dinner drinks on our last night. Superbly looked after by Paul, Andrew, Michael and Jason. We had booked another restaurant in Noosaville for dinner, so stopped by on the way. We should have just stayed at Ricky’s.

Thank you all. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Phil and Jacqui (aka The Princess)

“Pretty good food but pricey and very noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Maybe it was the couple sitting beside us loudly shouting sweet nothings at each other that ruined the meal for us, so this may not be an entirely fair review of Ricky's. Maybe it was the wedding being held in half the restaurant with people milling all around and rather loud music that affected the atmosphere. But one thing is for sure... Ricky's is not the place to go if you want a quiet dinner.

Having said that, the quality of the food was good, and while they are very "proud" of their menu, they do have some great offerings. I had the Caesar Salad it is truly one of the best I've ever had, so kudos for that. The half chicken was tasty but was bleeding. I was assured that is normal because of some special way they prepare it...

My wife enjoyed her food as well.

Because of the racket coming from the next table, we left without dessert.
