Amazing view!

We went for dinner right at sunset. The host sat us at a table on the balcony. I looked up and gasped at the beautiful ocean view. We had the chicken and rice and the garlic shrimp. Both were filling and had lots of flavor. The waiter was very friendly. It was a little pricy for chicken and rice... read more

For many years this was a great place to go and eat. Amazing view, service, and large portions of the freshest foods. I guess it is the economy and maybe not their fault but while the view is still amazing, the food is at best average and the portions are not even half the size they were before the change.... More

I planned a surprise birthday trip to PR for my boyfriend. He had been wanting to watch the Mayweather Paquiao fight and our hotel wasn't showing it so they referred us to Richie's. When I called the restaurant to confirm they were showing the fight I spoke to Richie directly. He was kind and down to earth. The restaurant is... More

As we arrived to the Restaurant it did not feel very welcoming. There was some employees hanging out by the entrance and it felt weird. The Hostess did not even bother to find us a table. We found a table that we wanted by the rail. The table had been cleared but not wiped. After around 10 minutes our waiter... More

After a long day at Yunque we went to Richies. Live music, lovely view, great service. Is a bit expensive but food was reasonable. Rice with chicken and pineapple was something new for us since we are from Europe. Presentation was perfect, sangria jar was big. Service was good!!

My wife and I decided to go to Richies for our 19th anniversary. This place has a spectacular view from the deck. If you go plan on going during the early evening hours 4-5pm. We were lucky in that we landed in a table with probably the best server in the establishment. Mark was very social, pleasant and accommodating moving... More

Loved the view. The service is slow but you are in the islands. So relax and enjoy the view. I had the grouper. It was very good. My husband had the mofongo with shrimp. My husband loves mofongo, but I find it bland. So be warned that mofongo is not for every one.

Within 1 mile of Wyndham Rio Mar resort, and looks over the resort to the ocean. Very helpful staff, pretty much a bar menu, but good seafood options and good drinks. I'd go again.
