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

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

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.

Red snapper stuffed with shrimp and lobster was amazing!!! Stayed at the Wyndham Resort right down the street and wanted to venture out due to limited options at resort on certain nights.. Our waitress was spot on and food was amazing and well worth it.

If you are in the area, make it a point to visit Richie's Cafe. They have a van and can pick you up from local Rio Grande hotels. The view from the restaurant's expansive patio is absolutely gorgeous. I ordered Shrimp Mofongo which was outstanding. It was a very memorable experience.

The view was amazing! The food was just ok. Not worth the money. The atmosphere was dirty and the bugs were horrible. Go for a drink and maybe an appetizer but save your money and appetite for something better
