Ricky’s River Bar & Restaurant

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard a Sunshine Coast local name Ricky’s as their favourite restaurant, well I’d have enough to pay for a three course meal, the wines to match and the cab ride home. I can assure you I’d thoroughly enjoy the fresh local produce and fine dining experience. This one is most definitely for the foodies among us.
