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

We haven't dined here since the start of the year as the quality of the food was below average. We decided to give the restaurant another go. Walked in off the street with no reservation, off to a good start. Got seated and was given menus, and had the style of Mexican explained and so too the hot rock. Our... More

The food here was very disappointing. Over cooked meat and sloppy salads for the fajitas. The coffee was nice. We won't be returning.

Went out for dinner in December with my family on a Saturday night. Make sure you book it gets busy. Food was okay but way too much, could have been cheaper and heaps less food. Cocktails are great, servi e is efficient , bit hot with just ceiling fans and the owners themselves look after you which is great they... More

Visited Ritzy Gritz last night with my husband and another couple. This restaurant is located on one of the main streets in Kiama with street parking right out front. First impression upon entering is the decor is a little confused. It is obvious this is a small owner run business which is a refreshing touch to larger more corporate options.... More

We had a pre booked party of 24. Food was great, service was a bit slow.. Prices were a little high. I would dine there again, but they need to have either more staff on or the staff that are on, working a bit faster.

Dined again recently after a period of time and quite disappointed. As we were deciding what to order, the gentleman who showed us to our table, advised us if we were going to share, to take note that the meals are quite sizeable. What a joke!!! Previously you got a decent size meal and food was very tasty. This time... More

Ritzy Gritz Mexican restaurant is located in a elegant row of terrace houses, we stumbled across whilst on holiday in Kiama. We started with the Tapas menu - salt & pepper calamari, buffalo wings, quesadilla wth chicken & corn tortilla with lamb. We were advised the dishes could be quite spicy so if we prefer mild, that would not be... More
