Richie's has amazing food, I suggest the pineapple rice and shrimp. The view is astonishing and Mark "The Gringo" is a fabulous waiter. Not only did he offer perfect service, he gave us tips on "ways of the town," safe places to go and when to visit them, beautiful & fun places to visit and where the best deals were... More

Eight of us stopped here after a rainforest trip. It was awesome. Red snapper, shrimp pineapple rice and burgers were all fabulous. Our server, Lyam, has got to be the best server in all of Puerto Rico. She was a treat! I highly recommend this place.

I went there just a couple of days ago and everything tasted just right. Next time I go back to will be my first choice.

The view is fantastic !!! My husband's food (rice and chicken in pineapple) was very good but my shrimp dish with cream and ajillo was not that spectacular. And my greatest disappointment was the overcooked vegetables that were served with the shrimps. I wouldn't go back for the pricey food.

The view from Ritchie's can't be beat. Our meal was hit-or-miss and the service wasn't anything to write home about. I'm guessing we didn't get one of the "amazing servers!" mentioned in some reviews. Ours seemed nice but not particularly friendly. I loved my meal, which was the pineapple rice and chicken but my husband's seafood salad was ok. The... More

We just returned from a vacation at Rio Mar, Puerto Rico, and followed the many signs to Richie's Cafe which was just up behind the Rio Mar Wyndam resort, and very quickly became regulars for the week. We went the first night for just a drink and a light snack, I had my wife and 3 grown daughters, and it's... More

We recently dined at Richie's Café in Rio Grande. We had traveled the island and were ready to relax. Mark greeted us at our table! He was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu. Mark is definitely the jewel waiter in Puerto Rico! He gave us the best service we have ever experienced! We loved your menu suggestions and the... More

Our waiter was very nice and friendly - the food was very good - son loved his ribs, I love the mofongo with chicken, and a Medalla beer of course!
