This restaurant is located on top of a mountain next to RIO MAR WYNDHAM HOTEL. It offers one of the best beach views you can have while eating in PR. There's no A/C but comfortable temperature and wind. Live music at nights and a nice bar. The restaurant is a bit expensive, not exactly great food, but an incredible view.... More

This little gem is the real find. It's not much of a place to look at but the food and view are just perfect. The service is very nice and spot on. The price is high but well worth it

We were hesitant to try this restaurant because of the mixed reviews but since they had free transportation from our resort and we were sick of the resort food, we decided to risk it. We were not disappointed, while the meal was NOT cheap, I think it was worth it. I ordered the "small" snapper and there was NOTHING small... More

Prawns did seem fresh but a really disappointing dish. 2 of our guest ordered ribs and the gave 2 very different sizes a small for the man 4 small ribs. And 6... More

My husband and I visited one evening for dinner. The food was great,and the view was absolutely amazing. It was extremely windy the night that we went, but the view was perfect so I could disregard the wind.

We began our evening around 4:00 in the afternoon and finally left around 9:00 that night. It wasn't because service was slow, quite the opposite. We were treated like special family and we stayed to watch the "super moon" come up over the ocean. We enjoyed Daniel, our host, very much. The food was deliciously prepared and they did everything... More

We recently dined at Richie's while vacationing at the Wyndham. The resort has a nice view -- but it's got nothing on Richie's! Open-air restaurant with panoramic view of the coastline -- absolutely stunning. We were there early in the evening so we had very personalized service throughout the entire meal. Lots of fresh fish and seafood to choose from,... More

The views are awesome of the ocean, beaches and greenery. The whole snapper we had was very good but took a long time to come. I think they drove into town to get it and bring it back to cook, so it was fresh? Drinks were good and waitstaff friendly. A bit pricey.
