Richie's is a breath of fresh air. Go for the view, stay for the vibe! It's all outdoors with beautiful mountain top views. Schedule your reservation from dusk, to sunset into night. You will like this place, good music, great atmosphere. Food was good, the feeling was better. Their mascot is Don Quixote! That tells you what you need to... More

Went for a birthday dinner and had lobster stuffed red snapper. It was very good. Our waiter was a riot. Sorry I can't remember his name. Others had shrimp and pineapple rice and said their meal was good as well. The view is what is spectacular about this place. It is up in the mountains and it overlooks the Rio... More

We went here during our wedding week with family and this was by far the most amazing restaurant. This place will be on the food channel soon as they taped 2 days before we went. But the presentation was amazing along with there wall of hall of fame of who's been there. It's up in a mountain with a amazing... More

The food is mind blowing, if you like a lil spice try the house sauce. The pineapple rice is absolutely fire!!! Love that place and loved the service. The pricing is about normal from what the rest of restaurants charge. #wepa

Recommended by our hotel, Wyndham Grand Rio Mar, our group of 9 had a wonderful dinner at Richie's. The paella is out of this world and snapper stuffed with local fresh conch is equally as good! A short ride from the resort, the restaurant will pick you up and had no problem with our party of nine. Due to the... More

Something has happened to Richie's since we eat there a year ago. A Saturday night and the place was almost empty. Those sitting at tables were only ordering drinks. We ordered meals and found that they were only ok, nothing special for the price. Again, great place to go for a drink and a view, but have your meal somewhere... More

The restaurant is situated on a hillside overlooking Punta Percha. The view was great. The food was average: the Caesar salad had plastic in it, and the rice and beans were inedible due to the amount of salt. The meals were delivered at different times. The cost was high for what we got.

An offsite restaurant from the Wyndham Rio Grande. Open air setting, fun waitress, casual atmosphere. They provided shuttle service from hotel.
