This restaurant offers free transportation if you are staying in one of the hotels in Rio Grande. The view toward Luquillo and the golf course of the Rio Mar Wyndham is excellent. Worth the trip. The food is pricey and is very good. The service is excellent. The waitress that took our order is american so no issue with the... More

Pass through the hall is fairly unknown sports greats who have visited Richie's (although Joe Paterno is ... Um... infamous... Sort of? And is on the wall). The deck has an amazing view of Luquillo Bay looking down on the beautiful 18 hole ocean course of Rio Mar. While the sun sets on the other side of the island, there... More

We had dinner at this restaurant in February 2016 and thought is was ok, nothing spectacular, but this visit was different. We had a different waiter, and that made all the difference! The drinks were excellent, but the sangria was a bit sweet for my taste. We had the grouper and conch salad. Both were excellent. We are planning on... More

It does have good food but it is way overpriced. Rio Grande has other restaurants with similar food and much more better pricing. The view is spectacular, atmosphere is good, so if you want to go up and enjoy it, just go have a drink and an appetizer and go eat somewhere else. Oh another thing, if you go up... More

This place is a tourist trap night mare. The bring you in with the great view of the nearby resort and ocean, and great atmosphere. The workers were all also very helpful when we were asking about trips to do. But the food was very bland and was over priced. The portions were also toddler sized for the prices between... More

Food was fabulous! Lucky for us Richie's restaurant has a driver that picked us up and take us to the restaurant and then took us back to the hotel for free! Of course we tipped the driver!

As everyone else has exclaimed in reviewing this restaurant, the views are amazing! And it's great to be picked up in a van that will take you to and from the restaurant. However, the food was not as good as I had hoped. I had a dinner that was okay, but didn't blow me away. The mofongo was bland, and... More

Came here to spend some family time. We order our food and the waitress kept coming back to tell us it was not available. Ended up leaving.
