We were a group of 5 eating in the evening. A friend had said it was a good place as they had challenges and could be good fun, watching but not getting to involved. There was no challenges it was just like sitting in a standard restaurant. The place was clean but untidy. Ice cream fridges in toilet corridors. Condiments... More

I've been here 3 times to celebrate birthdays etc. The restaurant itself is clean, well themed with some outdoor seating. I really like the little touches such as tequila bottle candle holders! The Mexican food is delicious, excluding the nachos (which are a bit tasteless). The menu also offers a wide selection of evening meals, but the lunch menu isn't... More

We took 2 friends to Rio Grande on the evening of Monday 30th June, we had recommended the place because we had eaten there a couple of times and had always been impressed. Unfortunately on this recent visit we were less than impressed. My starter didn't arrive, the waiter did offer me a complimentary drink which I accepted because by... More

Visited this restaurant for a birthday evening. Although the staff were pleasant - the food was terrible. Wish I'd had a few tequilas before we got there!

Came here, looking forward to the burgers. Had the French Canadian (would recommend). Had to send it back for personal preference reasons, but when it came back it had turned into the Grande burger. Sent it back again and finally got what I wanted, about 20 mins later. This may put people off coming, but the way the manager handled... More

Came here with several friends, really looking forward to it as heard lots about it. Actually been twice now and both times disappointed. First time I only had nachos, and they were burnt!!!!! No one asked if ok, service not great. Second time had a vegi option and it was tasteless. Will not be going back.

We always come here, its our favourite restaurant to eat at and always good, quality food and plenty of it. Very good value for money and fantastic that its open for lunch service as well as evening. Rio grande offers diversity to a very dull newton Abbot. The manager we always see working and his service is very personal and... More
