This place has a great view and drinks but the food is not great and is over priced. I guess we had tourist written over our faces as the market price for fried snapper with a filling was $55. We didn't ask before ordering so that is our fault but it wasn't a great meal. The view is awesome so... read more

We missed the opportunity to be at Richies before the sun set but our view of the island was wonderful. We will be back next year and make sure that we are there before sunset. Our meal was good and service good. I would not rate it as great, but will go back next year

Nothing bad to say about this restaurant. Excellent view you can appreciate the sea while you're eating, the food was tasty and desserts too. The waitress gave us a great service. We love this place!

Our large group went for dinner and expecting a great dinner - all that I asked said they were disappointed including myself and my wife. Yes very "cafe" type of below average restaurant ambiance and the view at night was overrated - not much but a few building lights one can see! Host welcomed us with a great narration of... More

After visiting the Yunque Rain Forest, stop by Richie's, sit back and relax and take in an amazing view of the mountains and ocean. It will add an amazing ending to a great day. Drinks are good and water is kept refilled. Appetizers are quite tasty, but what really takes the prize is the grouper. Melts in your mouth, beautifully... More

My visit was a freebie from my broker, who happened to be in PR at the same time. That being said, I enjoyed the visit and the view, even after dark. The churrasco was very good - just not enough of it. I've heard that the prices aren't that good - but wonder if that's because the reviewers expected McDonald's... More

We visited Ritchie's while on vacation at the Wyndham Rio Grande. Two of our party went a couple days early to scope it out and made reservations. While there, the staff said that they could come pick us (8) up in a van. We arrived and were seated promptly. Ramon was our server and was fantastic in explaining the menu... More

We went for dinner and drove ourselves to the top of the mountain; although they will provide transportation to/from some of the resorts. It is all completely open-air seating which I wasn't clear about. Extremely windy when we were there. Food was good, but not very hot. I enjoyed the sangria and the pineapple shrimp which is served in a... More

Food and atmosphere just ok. Service was good but the food came lukewarm to cold. The best part of the meal was the garlic bread served before the meal.

Fun family friendly. Staff very nice. Not so great food. Mahi mahi was so tough, lobster was ok. It is a Red lobster level at best. I think the fish is frozen not fresh. Or some of it is frozen. High $$$ but what is not here. Not coming back anytime soon
