I would give 5 stars if drink service was faster. Took a very long time to get a drink and we were never offered a second. The food is absolutely out of this world good, especially the pizza! It’s very clear that someone knows what...they are doing in the kitchen! Work on the bar / drink service speed!More

Love the vibe. Great people working here. Good food... poppers and fritters are my fav. The service was great and the view of the street is fun for seeing what’s happening.

During COVID, this is a good place to grab a bite as many other places are closed. The location, outdoor seating, and pizza were good and I would go there again.

From a couple of Italians this was the freshest pasta combos and most popular restaurants in the village all the dishes are served up with the freshest ingredients and with the care of a true chef. Great specials and service too

Incredible fries and and the Boston Grinder are a match made in heaven. Add a margarita and watch the streetscape.

Rick's was the perfect night out spot in Placencia. We had a very warm welcome right when we walked in and got started with some fiery cocktails that were infused with Habeneros. After we enjoyed some delicious conch fritters, Rick himself came out and said...that he'd been fishing earlier and caught their special of the evening, a black grouper. It came with a lemony garlic sauce that was unreal. This guy really knows what he's doing!More

The best chowder on the peninsula! Ricks new place is nice! I kept hearing about his original restaurant on the sidewalk, but now on the second floor and on the main road, its open and airy with many locals and tourists that seem to blend...here. The staff were friendly and fun and great drinks. (Erna?) Can't wait to get back!More

Really enjoyed our drinks and food at Rick's. Even with a pandemic going on, and curfew settling in, we felt right at home at Rick's. The habanero margarita was fantastic, the staff super friendly, and really comfortable atmosphere.

This place is a gem!!! My wife and I ate their four times in the four days we were in the village. Rick the owner and chef has an amazing little establishment that will blow your taste buds away! The Modo Mio pasta dish and...Cuban sandwich are a must. The entire staff and his dog “sweetie” as so welcoming and make you feel at home.More
