Life’s Always A Party At This Iconic Latin Eatery By The River

The place to be this festive season

By Angelica Silva | 17th November 2021

It only makes sense for a Latin-inspired eatery to reflect the vibrant tastes, colours, and culture of Spain and South America, and no one does this better than Rico Bar & Dining. Seamlessly marrying fresh food with warm and friendly service, Rico boasts a winsome outdoor area and bountiful Latin American and Spanish inspired menu. But perhaps what makes this suave space stand out from its competitors is its ethos of sharing and sense of community. From the moment you enter this 200-seat restaurant, you’ll instantly feel like everyone and anyone inside is a close friend of yours. Tuck into share-style dishes, such as tapas, pintxos, and paella, while washing it all down with flavoursome jugs of sangria – just in time for those balmy summer evenings. And, with the party season upon us, Rico is hosting a number of entertainment options for you and your friends to indulge in.

Salsa your way to Rico’s Sunday Samba

Every Sunday afternoon for the next two months, head out on the stunning Eagle Street Pier and enjoy the sunshine, music from a live DJ, and an abundance of culinary options. With those stunning water views, there’s nothing better than a freshly shucked oyster in the hand, which you can savour for $25 for four, including your choice of a glass of Estrella Damm or sangria.

Earn your hostess with the mostest badge

Whether you’re looking to host a Christmas catch up or a full-blown party, Rico’s function spaces, which include their luxe private dining room and outdoor terrace, are guaranteed to make your event a memorable one. And if you really want to up your hosting game, why not opt for a full restaurant takeover?

Countdown to 2022 in style

Come for a delicious meal and flowing drinks and secure the perfect spot to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks! With stunning views of the Story Bridge and an unmatched atmosphere, it’s the best way to bring in the new year.
