Yummy

Visited this place about 3 times and 2 out of those I have had the garlic chicken hot pot with nachos on top, I could not fault it one bit. However receiving the order can be a bit slow sometimes but the taste of the food wins me over:)

Visited here several times with big groups of us as well as just with my partner every time the food has been excellent! A couple of times food orders have been slightly wrong with the big groups however they dealt with the situation wonderfully changing the food and offering a drink free of charge! Excellent place to visit

Visited Rio Grande for a Valentines Lunch with my husband. Was pleasantly surprised as restaurant decorated with "valentine theme" tables. This was our 3rd visit and the food,ambience and service were as good as before.

Food was wonderful, service is great and if you tell them it is for something special they will make the extra effort. the menu is extensive and varied and they will accommodate changes, just ask or advise beforehand. There also a separate room for functions away from the main area,... More

Had a great night with our family and friends, we were given the upstairs function room which was great for our rabble! The menu is great and having chosen the Grande burger I wasnt disappointed, the cheesecake was a triumph and the complimentary tequila shots were greatfully received (although I an sure we could have all done without them).
