The pineapple rice was delicious and the view was flabbergasting . Abby was one of the sweetest waitress I ever had. There's a complimentary shuttle back and forth from the Rio Mar and other hotel I think .

Go for the view only. Unless you like to pay $15 for a small, mediocre margarita and $55 for the stuffed grouper. Plus %15 mandatory gratuity.

If you are anywhere near Luquillo or Rio Mar, call Richie's to pick you up in their complimentary shuttle. The view is from a mountain top next to the rainforest and the food is GREAT. Try the fried cheese, mahi bites, whole fried snapper. You will not be disappointed by either the prices, the view, the entertainment at night or... More

Service- good depending on who you get.. we over heard an awesome server but ours was lacking.. Food- it fed us.. but nothing I'd write home about.. Mahi Mahi bites were good! View- worth every dollar spent!

Food was good for Caribbean style. Kids weren't big fans but are used to American Cuisine. All in all it was a great experience!

A very nice outdoors restaurant where we could escape the heat with a nice breeze because of the restaurants location. The waitress (I'm sorry we didn't catch her name.) was the best. She had good humor with great suggestions. She went out of her way to make our visit wonderful. I highly recommend a visit here to enjoy some of... More

Oh my gaaaaa! Spent a few hours just taking in the view! Everyone was incredibly friendly! Got our food super fast! Excellent garlic glaze shrimp, mofongo, and Carribbean drinks to die for! We sat out on the open air veranda, took in the wonderful cooling breeze coming from the ocean below and enjoyed a meal prepared to perfection! Had a... More

The service was timely and with a smile and the food was cooked well in authentic Puerto Rican style and flavor. Come for the food and stay for the view.
