The first time we went was for an event and have visited every time we go to Puerto Rico since. We have spent 2 Thanksgivings there and have always had great service from Mark and Liam (she's a great singer too). We are very excited to be returning in a few weeks and can't wait to enjoy a meal and... More

We had dinner here our first night Puerto Rico!! I had the Filet it was cooked to perfection. My wife had the Skirt Steak and she really enjoyed it. We couldn't really enjoy the view so we decided to return for lunch the following day. The view was absolutely stunning looking over the Rio Mar golf course and the ocean!... More

The experience started with the hotel attendant giving us a spectacular review of the restaurant. He said it was very good, affordable, authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. So our expectations were high. The staff were polite but the service was slow. The best tasting dish was the red beans and rice, which was a side item. Our group had the Mofongo... More

Open air and wonderful view, this is a good spot to eat. I had the Red Snapper stuffed with Conch - fried to perfection and every bite juicy and tasty. Great presentation. The rice was moist and delicious. Mofongo here is good and a variety of choices. The appetizers were Chorizo al Vino, not spicy and a sweet sauce. The... More

We arrived at the resort about 6 and were ready to have dinner. Richie's has a free shuttle from the hotel. The views were amazing as it got dark. The food was reasonable and good.

Go before sunset to see a great view of the ocean and surrounding area. The food was good but prices are a bit high based on portions. The staff was very friendly and helpful with the menu. The menu is traditional local meals as well as some mainland US food - pasta, salad,... Adult drinks are well made. The seating... More

Enjoyed our waiter Mark and his menu suggestions. Although cheeseburgers are not his favorite, it was still great!😜

We had the most amazing time at your place today. Mark was hilarious and made our lunch a part of our trip we will never forget. The food was beyond good. The absolute best Mofongo ever!!!! Especially with the conch. The skirt steak was delicious also and we took Mark's advice and had the flan for dessert. Truly a gem... More
