Awful Service, Awful Food!

When we arrived we were seated immediately. After waiting approximately 20 minutes, nobody came to greet us at our table. Several other tables had been seated after we arrived and already had drinks. We decided to leave. As we were walking out, the host asked us to say and that they would make... read more

What a view! What a Luncheon! Just up the hill from the main entrance to Rio Mar Resort, in Rio Grande, PR. The food was fantastic! Our tables while looking out over the Atlantic, were particularly stunning and it was fun to watch people enjoying Elba, our wonderful entertainer, when she had us join in singing and dancing while enjoying...

Good food, but rather pricey for what you get. However, they take advantage of having a privilged view of the coast and a nice outdoor terrace. Since we've found other alternatives for dining out that aren't as expensive, I probably wouldn't return, unless there was a special.

Make a right turn out of the hotel property and Richie's is less than a mile on the right side. Absolutely stunning views and very good food. I highly recommend....I went twice for dinner and was better than any meal I had at the hotel. Service was also great.

We were told to eat here by the owner of our VRBO. It was the best meal we had and we went back for our last dinner there because it was that good. Request a seat with a view and the waiter we grew to love, Manny! He was awesome and made some amazing drinks. The steak and munfango were... More

We had a great time but the mosquitos were relentless. Food was good and service was good. We had an outside table on the deck and the mosquitos were so bad they actually had bug spray! I used it! The restaurant is open so going "inside" would not help with the bugs. We will go again but coating in repellent... More

We went here for our anniversary while staying at the Wyndham. We were immediately struck by the view. It is beautiful and basically that's what you are paying for. The food was not spectacular and a bit more pricey than I had expected. It probably is a good idea to go here for a drink and enjoy the atmosphere rather... More

Ok. It;s got the best view around, but the food is the same tired stuff and the "ambiance" we did not quite enjoy. Maybe it was because we went on a weekday. Anyway, they really advertise well and the view is worth the visit..

This open air restaurant is perched on the side of a high hill with a breath taking view of the shoreline and ocean below. The food is exceptional and all of the staff are welcoming, friendly, and efficient. They also have live entertainment. We stayed at Gran Melia and went here two nights for dinner. My wife loved the pineapple... More
