We absolutely loved mark from the moment we sat down. He was an absolute joy and made several good recommendations of places to go. The food was not as good as expected but what we got in service more than made up for it.

I had the skirt steak and it came with chimichurri. Wonderful! The view was amazing. Nice atmosphere and great service. A bit pricey. Worth it though! Our server's name was Mark. He was great. He was fun and attentive. Joked around with us. Overall a great meal experience.

Mark was our waiter and he was great. He had us laughing and crying hysterically. He made excellent recommedations. I really enjoyed his insight into the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I have to say parking is excellent but it is easy to drive past. It is clearly marked but it is across the street. The road isnt too busy... More

Great service (MARK) and good food. We took some great pictures from their balcony. We had some good food and a crazy Richie's special drink!

Have visited this restaurant a few times but the last few times it was drinks and appetizers only. The service is ok needs a facelift but a very nice view. It's nice to go around 5 and watch the sunset

My Family, & I visited Richie's on a 6 day vacation to the Island. Courtesy pick up from, & to our resort by Richie's was just the beginning of a very friendly, wholesome authentic experience. The food was tasty, & the portions where perfect! Visited Twice!! Our Waiter Mark suggested the Sangria, OMG!!

Tricky finding the place. The food was over priced, not a place where local people can go to eat Puerto Rican cuisine. The food was ok but not amazing. They were slow in serving, and when they served the appetizers, it was like eating a drop in the bucket.

If you're staying at the Wyndham and want to escape, then Richie's is a great option. They will pick you up and drop you back off at the resort. The view from Richie's Cafe is awesome, the drinks are good (and strong) and the service was great! I can't recall our waitresses name, but she was on top of it.... More

Run away from this place. Everyone in our party of 6 was disappointed with their food. My wife, born in PR, said it was the worst mofongo she ever had. I had the ribs which was dry meat slathered with what tasted like bottled barbecue sauce. Prices were outrageous for what we received. Yuck...

I went with my family during august of 2014. I found that the restaurant has a very beautiful view but it was lacking in several key aspects which would have made want to return. The plates were about $20, kind of expensive for a mofongo, but that's what I had. I believe that the waitress/hostess should have told us that... More
