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

Located on a mountain top in the city of Rio Grande, this restaurant offers a gorgeous view of the east coast and a great selection of authentic Puerto Rican cuisine.

We were picked up at Gran Melia for free. We enjoyed our food, and the entertainment. There was not much in the way of nightlife at the resort and at Richies there was a singer and the tigers were playing ball on the big screen. My little granddaughter got to dance with other guests. It was a nice evening. Big... More

The only positive about this restaurant is the views but if you are hungry skip this establishment. I ordered pastelillos as hors d'oeuvres, the cheese that was used to fill them was American slices (horrible), the meat was invisible, it tasted as if the cook had no idea what he/she was doing. I also ordered the fish of the day;... More

We dined at Richie's on our last night visiting PR. The sunset view was absolutely breathtaking! Our waiter Mark was very helpful in his suggestions for meal choices and cocktails. While I enjoyed that special Sangria that I'm sure Mark made was delightful, the food was just average. But the ambiance, and the courtesy service would definitely bring me back... More

This restaurant is excellent. Phenomenal view!!!. Reasonable prices, fabulous food and sevice. If staying in Rio Grande area your hotel may provide free shuttle service. Told our " neighbors" at hotel about Richie's and they also loved their dining experience. Oh,they also had sports on if you are wanting to catch a game. Valet at Wyndham recommended. ENJOY!
