“Cramped seating but good food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Ricky's is such a difficult place to review!
The food was really delicious but the tables were far too close together! People were smoking everywhere so wether we sat inside or outside we were surrounded by it.
The wine was excellent except for the rosè which had been open too long and was past it. The lady who bought the food and wine over spoke little to no English so it was difficult to correct.
They supply the best high chairs, Phil and teds lobster seats.
The price is good for waiheke restaurants.
If they made just the very front section smokers and the rest (especially the front door area) smoke free, removed a couple of their tables and kept their wines in check it'd be one of the best on the island.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

To begin with best garlic bread ever can take the ferry again to eat them again. Burger was awesome and a plate full as well. Not very costly compared to snooty Auckland restaurant.

“Has potential”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Has potential to be great, but service is average. Tables are packed in so tight, kept getting knocked as people & staff walked past. Didn't really enjoy people lookong at me eating my breakfast when walking past either.

“Good Coffee But Slow Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

This Main Street cafe should be humming but the slow service would make me think twice about going back. However the excellent coffee might save the day.
