Go for the view, but don't get your hopes up on food

We went to Richie's for my wife's birthday. A friend had warned us that the food wasn't great. The servers were friendly and warm. The drinks were unimpressive and the food was average. Living in Texas, we certainly don't have views like that and my wife was willing to go precisely for... read more

We had a large family dinner here recently. We had about 25 people in our party. The waiter did an excellent job explaining the menu, the specials and making drink recommendations. All the food came out at the same time, and he did a great job keeping supplied with water or soda or whatever. Seafood is the specialty and from... More

There was 4 of us and we all tried different dishes and the food was great! The view was awesome I would highly recommend the outdoor sitting! Service was very good a little on upper end of price. But well worth it!

From the Grand Melia road intersecting the main highway, take a left, go three traffic lights. Take a left at the third light and go to the top of the hill past the Wyndham. There is plenty of parking if you get there early enough. I understand that it is quite packed later. This was the first place to make... More

Our friend said we had to visit Richie's Cafe when we were in Puerto Rico and it was amazing! Mouth watering food, delicious cocktails, an amazing view, and the staff is terrific. You must meet Mark and share stories! We will come back any time we visit PR!

The food is reason enough to stop here. Perched on the hillside, the outdoor seating provides an amazing view of Rio Grande.

Went on a Saturday evening and restaurant was not even half full. I read all the rave reviews here before we made a reservaton, but I just can't agree (and I wanted to). The restaurant hangs it hat solely on the view. Our waiter (Mark) was good, but all the food was salty and over-cooked and very overpriced. The chocolate... More

We enjoyed Father's Day dinner at Richie's. Mark our server was great, super friendly, funny, full of information on the island and was very attentive to us! Our dinner was delicious. I had pineapple rice with chicken with fried plantains and my husband had the skirt steak with rice and beans! Our daughters more traditional American meals but all were... More

Ther is a local musician which makes the place very lively and entertaining. The place is extremely touristy and there is even a bus that will pick you... More
