It’s a very convivial place where family and friends can enjoy a good gourmet meal. Amazingly, it’s not that expensive.

Great service enjoyed the food and drinks ! We are regulars at the restaurant and it never disappoints . Only slight let down was I made a booking for the end of January for my mother’s birthday and asked to book the same table . Was told it couldn’t be guaranteed which was disappointing . I have given plenty of notice !

My wife and I have visited several times in the past but this time, although the atmosphere and service were well up to their usual high standards, I’m afraid I was not impressed with the food. The prawns in my starter were mushy and unpleasant to the taste and I thought the fish used in the sole Veronique was freezer burnt. My wife’s main course - a Dover sole - was excellent, but the £39 cost of this simple dish could not be justified. I would have sent both of my courses back, but I didn’t want to spoil the evening for my wife. I’m hoping for better next time.

service was incredible to start but as it became busy it started to drop off and our finished plates were left on the table for to long. The food was great as always.

The food and the service was excellent my only criticism is the wine and drinks as they are very very pricey, but apart from that the food was to die for and we cannot wait to come back. The staff could not do enough for you they were all very attentive and explained the menu in great detail.

We have been to Rick's many times this year since moving into the area and I have to say that food, service and atmosphere is always excellent. The set lunch/Christmas menus offer great value for money. We are looking forward to visiting many more times in 2019.

Not a comment but a safety thing happen with my wife turning into the glass panel at the entrance due to poor lighting and no actual signage or evidence that this is not actually an opening ...

Mr Stein must be employing waiting staff with telepathic abilities because I have never enjoyed such precise and attentive service. They truly are a credit to this fine eatery. When the food is as beautiful as this and set against a tasteful backdrop which the restaurant presents, every nuance of this experience is sheer delight.

We had a very enjoyable meal, two courses from the Christmas set menu. We both had the hake as our main and this was delicious but I would say that there was too much gravy/sauce with it; and this is from someone who likes plenty of moisture with her food! This somewhat spoilt it.

A fab pre-Christmas catch-up with my sister, started with a lovely warm welcome from reception then we had some well mixed cocktails at the bar along with some Iberico to munch on. Starters of Mussels in a tasty liquor. Scallops, which I have to say we’re a tad on the small side although very nice. A Dover sole and a Turbot - being classically trained I would have liked the black skin off and the hollandaise served directly on to the white flesh rather than having the black skin left on. However this didn’t detract from a great piece of fish, just a personal preference. The wines, a Graves which was lovely and a Japanese white, also great value. More Iberico and a plate of cheeses, very nice indeed. Lovely ice cream with a glass of Pedro over the top. . Followed by another cocktail. A priceless night with my sister Thank you to all. . . .
