Description: Richie's Cafe, has one of natures most breathtaking views. Richie's Cafe is set high a top mountain overlooking the greens of the Rio Mar Wyndham Grand Resort golf course straight out to the crystal clear Atlantic Ocean with a side view of the United States only national rain forest, El Yunque. Richie's Cafe, has two open air dining with a bar. Serving Caribbean cuisine while overlooking a Spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding Resorts. An establishment focused on serving great food with polished service and long list of wines and beverages, all while still serving the best local dishes with the friendly type of hospitality one would expect to find on the island of enchantment, Puerto Rico. With a hand picked culinary staff. We are proud to to offer you what we know to be the most complete evening of dining and leisure on the island.

Okay. The food and service here is outstanding. We stayed at the Wyndham. They offered a free ride from our hotel up to their restaurant. When we arrived, we walked into the restaurant and the view?!?! The view was jaw-dropping. The open-air restaurant sits on top of a cliff overlooking a vast expanse of ocean. In fact, the view is so outstanding, it is rumored that J Lo is building a mansion almost nextdoor to this restaurant. Anyway, moving on to food and service. Daniel took care of us. He was such a nice guy and spent a lot of time talking with us, hanging out, telling stories, etc. (which we encouraged because we enjoy spending time with the locals) He made me his famous margarita and decribed the menu in great detail, making suggestions, etc. Of course, I had to get the pineapple shrimp rice which was phenomenal. The spices were perfectly done. My husband got the snapper which was fantastic as well. The Puerto Ricans are still re-building after the hurricane so tourism was down. They could use the support and boost in economy. It was such a great place to visit! This was our favorite place to eat. Would go back in a second.

I don’t know where to start.... This is the BEST cafe on the island!!!! The owner Richie is Life. They came to get us from our resort and from there service was amazing. And my food.... to die for!!! FYI I had pineapple curried rice with shrimp. From the bartender to the chef, everyone was the best ever. I thought southern hospitality was something until I came here. A real diamond

Richie's overlooks the Atlantic and the Wyndham Rio Mar golf course. The views are very nice. Danny was our waiter and took good care of us. Dining is informal and dress is very casual. We had the pineapple, rice & chicken dish and the Red Snapper. Both were very good and reasonably prices for the island.

The restaurant is open air and a light jacket or something with sleeves would be good for the evening. Richie's will pick you up, if you don't have a car. Parking is a little tight for those that drive. Due to the phone lines being down, Richie's is cash only, so plan accordingly.

This is not a fast paced place to eat, so enjoy the view and relax.
