Lovely food good service

Have eaten here several times and have never been disapointed. Seafood cocktail is lovely and the mixed Fajita comes piping hot and tasty. Good value for money and service was good. On comparing the Fajitas here with Fat Mammas, FMs don't compare.

Good news and bad news!

First the good news! The service was very good – helpful and pleasant and the menu is extensive. The size of the meals we had were huge (we were warned by Liz the friendly waitress!) and the quality of the meat was very good. The bad news was that my meal was rather over cooked and our meals had far too much sauce on them.The starters of loaded potato skins (very large and tasty) and chimichangas were both pretty good though the latter could have been a bit spicier. These were followed by the rack of ribs and the ‘Mighty’ mixed grill. The rack of ribs was huge, well cooked and came with a jacket potato and a small portion of vegetables. The only problem was that there was far too much BBQ sauce which would have been much better served in a little jug to add as required. We noticed from dishes that other nearby diners had that the Rio Grande tends to smother its dishes in sauce.The mixed grill included a breast of chicken, a pork fillet, a rump steak, a lamb chop and a small rack of ribs plus a jacket potato, mushrooms etc – a very large meal indeed! All of the meat was rather over cooked but still pretty good except for the chicken which had gone rubbery. We never reached the desserts as we were full!Overall quantity rather than quality but the Rio is pretty good value on the whole. I think, on reflection, that we might have done better to stick to the Mexican dishes and, if we go back, will probably do so. The question is would we go back? Not sure but possibly for lunch.Parking is available behind the restaurant.

Best Rack of Lamb in Paphos

We have visited Rio Grande on a number of occasions and the food is always good, the welcome and service excellent. On our last visit my husband had spare ribs which came as a hugh portion but was too good to leave any. I ordered the rack of lamb and ot was cooked to perfection. Will definately go back again.
