It has been so long since I have experienced such sincere and fantastic service. Rick and his staff go well over and... above. We stopped for cocktails and both decided this is definitely our new local. The decore is absolutely fantastic, very ambient and clean. Cocktails are spot on and very well priced. Highly recommendread more

Not a very innovative menu and average cooking from the kitchen. Good customer service although they should have... offered a free drink or something when they forgot the main course from one of our party of nine.Lovely views from the rooftop!read more

Come in sit back and relax with your group of friends. Rick's place offers a very extensive menu with something truly... for everyone.We shared a wide variety of alletizers like bruchetta, buffalo wings and a cheesy garlic bread.lunch included dishes from the menu ranging from seafood paella, rissoto to kangaroo. I could eat the paella all the time I truly loved it.Pair it all with some of the best drinks and soak in the sun on the rooftop.Dessert was the perfect variety of sweets with a blood orange icecream, brownie and the brulee having the perfect crack.read more

Italian food but not as you know it. Rick’s Place not only serves up the Italian staples, but also plays around with... dishes and ingredients from other cuisines. Think Kangaroo Salad, Seafood Paella, and you’ll even find brunch dishes such as Acai Bowl and Pulled Pork Benedict on the breakfast menu. Without a doubt, a place suited for all ages and all occasions.I was treated to a huge feast on the rooftop courtyard with beautiful city views. Garlic, Herb and Cheese Bread, Salt & Pepper Calamari, Risotto Funghi, Calamari Salad, Veal Involtini, Seafood Paella, these were just some of the dishes that I got to try, amongst others. With a focus on fresh and quality ingredients, each dish was executed beautifully and radiates bold and piquant flavours. The Dessert Platter was a hit with everyone. The lovely cracking sound given out when tapping the caramelised sugar provide us with pure satisfaction. Digging in, we were rewarded with smooth and creamy custard. Rich and chocolatey brownies, a tart blood orange sorbet and a refreshing mango mousse rounded up this amazing platter.A very enjoyable and well-spent afternoon eating and drinking, and the extensive menu means that I must make a return visit to try out the rest of the dishes.read more

The pesto bread and the garlic bread were definitely the highlights. So much flavours and crunch. Just wanted more of it. Loved the italian donuts to finish off the lovely mains and entres.…
