This was our first visit at Rio's the day after reopening after lock down. Everybody had to eat outside and the tables were well spaced with canopies and heaters but unfortunately they have no control over the weather and it was very cold but at...least it wasn't raining We were greeted by our server, Romy, on arrival and she explained the process of ordering salads and sides as well as how to use the cards to show we wanted meat or were having a rest!! She took our drinks order and they arrived really quickly along with our sides and salads. She was very attentive to our party throughout our visit without being pushy. Then the meat began to arrive. I wasn't sure what to expect and how it would be served but it all came out on skewers and the waiter would tell you what it was and you decided if you wanted it or not. As soon as one meat went in another would appear. Every piece of meat I tried was exceptional and the rest of our party agreed. Even the pineapple that went with the gammon was really tasty. We will definitely be back and I would highly recommend to friends. Maybe wait until its a little warmer though if still only allowed to sit outside. Overall a very enjoyable meal which was a little bit different.More
