Story of Rick’s place restaurant, Melbourne CBD

Rick’s place Restaurant Where It All Began

I would definitely say Rick’s Place is one of the best restaurants in Melbourne CBD

Yes, there are already plenty of Italian and modern Australian restaurants in Melbourne CBD. But when I decided to embark on a mission to open a restaurant, my mindset was clear. I wanted to deliver high quality, beautifully prepared food that didn’t break the bank. I wanted a family-friendly place with a casual ambience. 

Our reviews speak for themselves along with the many customers that return again and again.

Amazing Culinary Experience

Rick’s Place was an amazing culinary experience. The staff was great and knowledgeable of the menu. They also offered impeccable service. I have this feeling that the chef loves what he’s doing as his passion reflects on how he prepares, cooks, and serves the food – delicate and well-prepared for. I will be back the next time I go back to Melbourne.
