Went along for dinner with friends who wanted to try Ritzy Gritz after a long time away from the area. We waited an hour and a half for our food. The food was bland, tasteless and carelessly slapped on the plate. It was far from fresh. There was nothing good to say about it really. Only stayed because our friends... More

Tried Ritzy Gritz for the second time and it wasn't a great experience. Booked in at 6:30pm with 2 adults and 4 kids, restaurant was quite busy and took a little while to get our menu. Waited about an hour for the kids meals and entree to come out, however 2 hours since ordering and the two mains still hadn't... More

The Vegetarian Burrito's are so good, add buff sauce for that extra zing, friendly wait staff and great atmosphere ❤

Great local restaurant, friendly and welcoming staff. Called in for lunch on a Saturday and walked out full. I went for the Chicken Quesadilla, it was delicious. Already booked another table to bring my friend next week.

The meals were superb as usual and their signature Margarita complement the food. As winter is upon us they have started their spicy soup entree with 1/4 damper load which was a meal on its own.

Sorry but this meal was not very good. Portions too large for all of us! Service was slow, and had to cancel an order due to slow service! Meals were average and then a very strong fish smell engulfed the restaurant. Too much for most of us! We left!

Sorry Ritzy Gritz, but we won't be returning. When we relocated to Kiama about 7 years ago this place was recommended to us. We tried it at the time and were disappointed. However last night, with an entertainment book discount in hand, we decided to give it a second chance. Our meals were ordinary at best. Firstly they didn't have... More
