    Hi Ladies. I am in the process of menu planning and I was just wondering what you had for your menu. What did you like and dislike? I'm a feeder and food is really important to me at any event. I would like to get some opinions before finalizing my menu. Thanks so much!

        I had the steak, but our guest ordered off the menu. I did not have to select for everyone. They had their own choice.

          My understanding of a reception at a Riu restaurant is that it's still a restaurant, everyone gets a full menu and orders whatever they like. I like it this way :)

            I won't be having my reception at the restaurant. Instead we will be having a private function at the pool so I need to choose from the private event menu. Some of the food on there sounds good but I've never tasted it. Just overly nervous I guess...

              were looking to get married at the riu palace and were looking to have private function by the pool, how much does it cost and does it cost extra for the food?

                It's a $500 site fee and it is extra for the food. It can range from $38 - $58/pax. We chose the $48/pax option. We are not paying for a bartender though becuase the bar is only one set of stairs away. We saw the set up when we were there for a site visit and were sold.

                  Do you know if you had the private beach reception would there be a close enough bar for people to go to? Or do you think it's to far away?

                    If memory serves me correctly, the beach reception is held just below the steakhouse. I believe there is a set of stairs that go up about 2 flights that will lead you directly to the bar. We also saw this set up on our site visit. Very private!!! They will have the tables in the sand but they construct a dance floor and walking area out of plywood. My dress has a chapel train and is lace so I prefered to have the stone walking area. My worst nightmare is to have my dress tear on a peice of wood.
