“Beware of the Prawn Entree!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

The prawn entree comes in an oven-hot cast iron dish. It's full of hot oil with the prawns in. Both of us burned our mouths and the rest of the meal was a write off from then on. Small menu and poor seasoning. Won't go back. Rather go to Lindoni's .

“Noosa's best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

We have always intended to go to Ricky's when in Noosa, but somehow never made it until this year. Now I know why our friends rave about it. The food, service and atmosphere is quite simply exceptional. The wine waiter is very knowledgable and does not simply recommend the most expensive wines. In fact he offered us a couple of options to taste.

Ricky's is now our Noosa favourite, and I regret not going there before. We will make up for this mistake on future visits.

“Overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were recommended to visit, however, we were disappointed with our overall experience. Over priced food, some of the service staff were quite arrogant where others were very helpful. At times service was slow and at other times we felt we were being rushed through - we certainly will not be back.

“Not so impressed on this visit ... but still worth it ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We re-visited Ricky's on a recent visit to Noosa from London - having always raved about it. Echoing many reviews - good food and wine list, knowledgeable waiters, relaxing atmosphere and location - even at night particularly if moonlit (mind the mossies if you're by the louvred windows!). Agree that when paying those peices (more expensive than a Gordon Ramsay in London!) you don't want to go to shared shopping centre toilets outside!! The thing that annoyed me most on this visit was the over familiar, patronising waiter.

In summary - good location - good food and wine - pricey but still worth the visit.
