    We are planning a wedding at the Riu in Ocho. I have read a LOT of reviews about the resort, and the food reviews are not great. 


    Is the food good/bad?


    Which location is the best the have your reception in?


    Does anyone know how much it costs to have an open bar at the reception?

      We recently got married at ROR. The food was great most of the time but we did find that some of the meals weren't great. We had a few meals at the steak house (before the big day) which is the same menu as the wedding receptions. Most of our group loved the food and raved about it but i was not hugely impressed and worried about the wedding meal all holiday. When it came to the meal itself 27 out of our 29

      guests enjoyed their food but 2 of our party literally could not eat their steak. it was so tough. We spoke to a waiter and it was replaced quickly and the replacements were fine. As with all mass catering everything is not gonna be perfect but it was tasty and warm.


      In terms of venue, we went for the mammee bay steak house but when we went for our meeting with the WC she said that they were busy that day and so we were moved to the plantation (normally this has to be hired and paid for). It was pretty private although there was another very nosiey wedding upstairs. The table was a long rectangle with white talbe cloths and our own decorations.


      We cut our cake and did the speeches before we ate so our photographer could capture it before leaving and then moved onto to a private beach party


      Hope this helps
