Danny and Mark and the rest of the staff were accommodating and very friendly. The view was worth a million bucks! They provide transport to and from the Rio Mar and food was delicious so we went back again later in the week. Be sure to bring your camera!

Nestled near the top of a hillside, this peak-roofed, open-walled pavilion has jaw-dropping views. It's a friendly beach-style bar with even friendlier service (Mark is wonderful), but the prices are exorbitant, while the food is well below average. The stuffed snapper special sounded good and looked great. A whole fish, filleted from the top to remove the entire rib cage... More

We went to this restaurant based on reviews I had read, however no one told me about the price! We sat outside and the view was really beautiful, but paying $28 for pineapple rice with chicken was a bit excessive.. and so were the shots they charged $11 each for.. The waiter was very friendly and gave us a lot... More

We enjoyed the food and Mark was a helpful waiter. Bring a light jacket or sweater -- it gets windy out there!

Richie's was highly recommended to us by locals. Our family of seven attended this restaurant with high expectations that were mostly not met. There were several interesting items on the menu but when we tried to place an order, essential ingredients (e.g. Shrimp, fish selections, or lobster) were unavailable. After settling on items that were available, when served we found... More

I only wish we had read the reviews and were prepared before going :( Yes you are graciously shuttled from the hotel to the a great - beautiful view restaurant. However, as others have stated, the food was grossly overpriced. It actually ruined our family evening due to the distrust we felt from the deception we received from the owner... More

This was a restaurant that had Puerto Rican food, and it was quite interesting. The Mofungo was good, but so filling, and they gave us a complimentary shot of a baileys-like native drink that was delicious! We were the only people at the place that night - not sure why, but the service was very good, and the food was... More

During our stay, it was recommended that we try R'sCafe! It offered a beautiful view, good food/drinks & comp shuttle. What was hidden in the "Market Price" was the outlandish price of the meal. From the DMV area, we know good seafood, steaks, etc. and what to expect with "Market Price"! However, never in a millions years would I spend... More

We had a lovely group dinner here one night during our stay. The view from the restaurant is splendid and they offer a free shuttle to/from the Wyndham (which the hotel itself does not offer). The drinks were outstanding but the foot was extraordinarily overpriced. I had the stuffed snapper special which was far below expectations. It is a small... More
