Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a find this place was. The service is good and they are attentive to gluten free needs. The fresh prawns were amazing - we ordered a second serve. It was all good and we over ordered but we just had to… lol.

My wife and I both ordered zucchini mousaka expecting it to be vegetarian. However, the zucchini replaced the aubergines not the meat. Furthermore, both our plates came out with a cold side and a hot side. Not nice. Also the food was incredibly salty. Nice...selection of mostly Australian wines though. The only other table (6) were finished and still had dishes to clear from their table. However, the two serving staff and an older man who seemed to be in charge all sat at the bar eating!! Bizarre. Not a good experience.More

Went for a special occasion and it did not disappoint. We tried 5 different dishes between the two of us, which was a good filling amount for two people with big appetites, and all were delicious. As a pescatarian the choice was quite large too,...which makes a nice change.More

Despite having lived in the area for 10 years, this was our first visit. I thought Ritzy's was all about the cocktails, and my husband and I aren't big drinkers. Anyway, we took a chance and had a really delicious meal. Service was attentive and...professional. We ordered the barramundi, arancini, Italian meatballs, and despite being full, lashed out on dessert - cheesecake, and lemon panna cotta. All were delicious and a reasonable price.More

So … the reviews are great … but this place was amazing! Friendly staff greeted us and didn’t mind that we didn’t book. Drinks flowed quickly and deliciously. The owner made sure we were served what we requested. And the food … AMAZING! There was...nothing on the table that we could fault. The meatballs were the favourite for the night. The whole night the staff were friendly and happy to help with every request. We will be back again!More

We had a very enjoyable dinner here on a cold night out. The staff were very engaging with all the guests. There is a great range of share plates and wines by the glass.

Thank you so much for making an amazing effort to make safe (and delicious) coeliac safe calamari for our 6 year old, and what a pleasant surprise to have safe chips for him too! Thank you so much! The other 7 of us also had...exceptionally delicious meals with delicious wine and a great looking cocktail menu. Thanks so much for being so accommodating in a town that was difficult to find safe food. We really appreciate it!More

Wife and I are staying at Pambula and decided go out for dinner. Thursday night seems to be a bit of a problem around here because almost everything was closed early in the evening. Anyway, decided to come into Merimbula and along the way made...a phone call to Ritzy Tapas Bar to see if they could look up after us with some tapas and wine. Originally thought we would have an outside table but then decided on a window table which is very pleasant on a lovely January evening. Menu is sufficiently broad and the wine list largely matches the menu. Staff are pleasant and attentive. We both enjoyed the meal especially the sashimi kingfish matched with Villa Maria Pinot Gris. We ordered second serve!More

Ritzy provided quick and friendly service, however, it is not a wine and tapas restaurant. The food came out so quickly there was no way it was made fresh and, considering the price ($32 for lamb skewers) there was little love or finesse. There was...no atmosphere or ambiance and at $70 a head we were expecting a far better experience.More

Di ordered the crispy barramundi which was on special and she ranked as the best fish she had ever had in a restaurant. No small praise, we are often in Australia and eaten most European countries. Well done, Ritzy. I found some of the dishes...a little heavy on chilli but the seafood chowder was excellent with large chunks of seafood. The drinks are not expensive with wine averaging in the $12-$14 range. The service is efficient and friendly.More
