What people say about us

  • Came to the Newton Rio for a work outing over Christmas (although we had the ordinary non-Christmas menu). The food was fantastic - I had the calamari for starters and the belly pork strips for main. The calamari was some of the best I've ever had, and the pork belly was perfectly cooked and very tender. The service was fast and efficient despite there being over 30 of us; I really couldn't fault any aspect of the visit.

  • Just celebrated hubby's birthday at the Rio Grande Newton Abbot and just had a BBQ ribs combo for 2 to share with a strawberry kiss cocktail followed by choc fudge cake and ice cream and to top it off a baileys coffee with mint. Had to follow it of with a long walk feeling stuffed will need to exercise it of tomorrow

  • Had a lunchtime perfectly cooked Rack of Ribs here at the Rio Grande Newton Abbot today, the meat was so tender it just fell off the bone as I lifted it from the plate!! Superbly tasty sauce and perfect fries. The staff were very attentive, polite and clean and tidy, just like the rest of the place. I only wish they were nearer to us.

  • Amazing all round. Have been to Rio Newton 3times in the last month and been excellent every time. The only prob is that u have to book so far ahead to get in but I guess that's a good thing really!! Lol
