Casual, great Grouper

Within 1 mile of Wyndham Rio Mar resort, and looks over the resort to the ocean. Very helpful staff, pretty much a bar menu, but good seafood options and good drinks. I'd go again.

We used the free shuttle from Gran Melia to have dinner here our first night. We knew from the reviews that this wouldn't be the cheapest meal but it honestly was not that bad pricewise. This is what we got for our $87. We split a Ceaser salad for an appetizer, I got the Pineapple Rice Chicken, a sangria and... More

Richie is the owner, and he is extremely nice and welcoming. He personally picked my family and I up from our hotel! We were there during the Cotto vs Pacquiao fight and the crowd was so hyped. We ordered the lobster and it was by far the best lobster I've ever had, and trust me, I'm an all-around foodie! The... More

Conflicting emotions here; the view is spectacular!!, but the food is very average. Great place if your going to grab some drinks, but not worth it for dinner. I had stuffed grouper for $30. The fish itself was pretty good, nothing memorable though, and came with undressed iceberg lettuce and tomato, and a starch of your choice. Our server was... More

So we arrived to our hotel on a Friday and noticed there was not much to choose from for dining near the Wyndham Rio property. We had gone to the concierge and asked what restaurants they suggested off property and they only toon one menu out to show us and it was Richie's. They hyped it up. So we drove... More

We did not have a car but Richie's sent a driver to pick us up. When we got in the van there were 3 other couples. It was great to meet new people who happened to be from Massachusetts as well. The view is awesome, everyone is friendly, Richie himself goes around and speaks with patrons. I had a fresh... More

Ritchie's offers extremely friendly staff, and terrific atmosphere. The staff really goes out of their way to make you feel welcome, and attends to you diligently. The appetizers are very good, especially the BBQ wings, and the main dishes were quite tasty, especially the whole redfish and stuffed redfish. Grouper was less good. The view is fabulous. All in all,... More

The view makes this restaurant but the food is ok. The drinks were excellent and the server was very attentive. The parking is not great as the parking lot is located across the street on a hill. FYI, ladies be careful in those heels.

We were in Puerto Rico on a family/reunion vacation over the Christmas Holidays. My son and his wife went to Richie's several years ago on their Honeymoon and wanted to go back. It was 16 of us and we were seated at a big table in a good location between the bar and the music/dance floor. It was a restaurant/bar... More

Beautiful views, beautiful people. We had a wedding rehearsal dinner for 40ppl in 2014. The service was great and the views are spetacular. The food is yummy and the live music is a great addition. If you make the trip outside of San Juan you won't be disappointed :)
