Richies is a medium sized restaurant within 3 minutes of the Wyndham resort in Rio Grande and conveniently accessible via Richies personal shuttling service. The food is absolutely outstanding in taste and presentation. We chose to have baby back ribs and their pineapple stuffed with rice and shrimp dishes. These were recommended by Richies excellent shuttle driver, Robert. The ribs... More

EVERYTHING seemed to be either fried or full of rice and plantains. Would go back for the quirky fun of Elba, the karaoke queen, the view and the drinks! The whole fried fish is a crazy looking thing. Had to eat an eyeball for good luck last year, but passed on eating another one on this last visit!

I stumbled on this restaurant by driving up the road from the Wyndham Rio Mar. Like most spots in PR, it doesn't look like much from the road. It's open air, but the breeze was wonderful when I was there. I ordered the pineapple rice with shrimp and it came with tostones that had a really good herb paste. Our... More

After hiking (& getting engaged at) El Yunque, we were exhausted, hungry, and giddy. Richie's was recommended to us at the info. desk at El Yunque, and we were not disappointed. With a gorgeous view from way up high, we could see the coastline and hotels down below. There was a nice breeze, friendly service, excellent food (mofongo/shrimp) and drinks... More

Mark made us laugh and made us feel welcome going above and beyond to make our dining enjoyable. We stayed for hours enjoying the drinks and the view. The maji appetizer and dessert were my favorite but the... More

We were staying at a nearby resort and were a bit weary of the food and high prices, so sought out other options. When we learned that Richie's provided a free shuttle service (along with a good recommendation from the front desk), we ventured out; and we are glad we did. The restaurant is on a hill, with a balcony... More

Pretty views. Left hungry (only 6 small prawns in main entree). Didn't have two of the appetizers requested Slow service. Kids meal cost was the same as a regular menu item.

We were staying with a very large group of golfers from Florida. Reviews of the restaurant had ranged from awesome to horrible. The group took advantage of the free shuttle service to go have drinks and dinner. Worst mistake ever!!!!! Upon arrival and being seated we asked the waiters (2 for a party of 40 something) for checks to be... More
