This restaurant is set on top of a mountain with a beautiful view. We went on a Sunday and they had a lady singing a mix of songs in Spanish and American hits from the 80's. People were dancing, there were people at the bar, and there was every age possible there. It was a very casual, inviting, and friendly... More

Nice view, shame about the food. Mahi mahi was bland and didn't seem fresh. Served with limp lettuce and some tomato. We expected much more. Server was very pleasant.

I ordered the mahi mahi and it was good but size of it was rather disappointing, especially for the price I paid . The calamari did not taste fresh but more out... More

We had seen signs for Richie's all over the place so we had to look it up, read all the reviews, and were lucky enough to get Mark "el Gringo" as our server! He made excellent recommendations and made us feel welcome from the moment we sat down. He had us laughing throughout the entire meal. We went with his... More

We went to Richie's for 5 year anniversary and sat on the patio because we had heard about the views and free transportation from the Wyndham. Both my wife and I had the pineapple chicken and rice. It was excellent. The next day Tropical Bertha blew in, and we were tired of sitting at our hotel so we decided to... More

This open air restaurant is perched high above the grounds of the Wyndham Rio Grande resort and offers gorgeous views of torques waters of the Atlantic and mountain peaks of the rain forest. On our... More

Open-air dining indoors & on the patio. We went because we had heard about the view, which is spectacular. The food is expensive & we had just gone horseback riding, so we just had drinks. The drinks were good & the view was better!
