I used to go to Rick's fairly often as I like the fact the menu always changes so there are new things to try and the service is friendly. I also used to live across the road. Now I live nearly an hour away it's a bit far to go often but tonight I decided I would go back since... More

After a few months of being a weekly regular I had not been to ricks for a few months but I came back tonight and things were as good as ever. I can't fault Rick's at all. Great food, really good wine and perfect service. I'm probably a bit bias as I have been so many times, but it really... More

This was a lovely little restaurant, slightly out of the way but certainly worth going to. The food was really lovely, as was the waitress who served us. A very small place with room for no more than maybe 25-30 people, so worth booking!

Traditional style cooking, Galician twist, always cooked well, family, couple or friends atmos. you can either all the way to Spain or simply visit Ricks for some authentic food. The menu is seasonal, changes regularly and the pulpo terrine is amazing, always top tapas and homely service. Love... More

Description
Rick's Restaurant is Tooting's first and only Modern British and Modern European restaurant. Owned by Rick Gibbs, former Head Chef at the Chelsea Arts Club, this cosy and intimate dining establishment, previously known as Rick's Cafe, prides itself with the Tooting Community Good Neighbour Award and the Taste of Tooting Best Restaurant Award. With a daily changeable menu and open plan kitchen it is a real treat for any fan of Modern Spanish, English, French, Italian, Mediterranean and other Modern European cuisines, as well as for those seeking a classic British brunch, lunch or dinner. Whether it's been for business or pleasure, adults or children, vegetarian or meat lovers, Rick's unpretentious yet utterly delicious cooking has brought a fresh and unique eating out experience to the area, receiving the highest praise from critics and customers alike.As Rick uses only the freshest produce the only thing in his freezer is ice cream. Naturally, the lunch and dinner menus change daily, reflecting what is in season and what has just come off the boat or is locally available. However, old favourites like Rump or Rib-Eye Steak with hand-cut Chips & Chilli Jam and Sticky Toffee Pudding loyally remain. Favourite with diners are the artisan produced Spanish hams, French cheeses, Irish oysters, Shetland mussels, Crème brûlée and other homemade desserts. The Wine List boasts a great selection of Spanish wines with splashes of French, Italian, South African and South American at prices that won't break the bank.Eating at Rick’s Restaurant is like being a guest in Rick’s own home. He loves to be hands-on in the restaurant and will always take the time to talk to his guests, inviting them into the kitchen or sitting with them at their table to have a glass of wine or two. Essentially, Rick’s Restaurant provides comfort food with substance and intelligence without frills.
