I had the portabella adobe..it was horrible. I have eaten alot of places and I definitely will not return here. Last night here and dinner and service sucked. Thank goodness for the saxophone player. Her music is beautiful. Been coming here for many years. Sad to leave on a bad last meal.

This is one of the best restaurants in the city. The view is spectacular especially during sunset. The quality of the food, and the level of service are excellent.

Vista grill HAS MOVED to the beach CORRECT! A very good meal for those who desire a dinner with sunset on the beach. We had a little kids with us who enjoyed the beach just as much as we did. You won't be disappointed. Beware of being charged for bottled water.

We had reserved a table several weeks ago in anticipation for our vacation to PV Mexico. Our taxi driver brought us to the "old" location which was now closed. We then figured out it was relocated to the beach beside La Palapas restaurant. We had a lovely dinner on the beach, the food and service was excellent and we were... More

I booked a table for my husband and I right at opening. We got there and had our pick of tables on the top terrace. We ended up at the railing facing directly out at the ocean. The pictures don't do it justice, it's breathtaking. When we got there we pretty much had the place to ourselves. We had drinks... More

Vista Grill WAS one of the best restaurants in PV. Sadly it is now closed. The staff has been reassigned to their two other sister restaurants La Palapa and El Dorado.

If great food, great service and great atmosphere are essential for a great review, then Vista Grill is killer! We have dined there three times in the past two years while vacationing, including our 10th wedding anniversary, and each time they have given us an experience that is beyond special. For our anniversary in 2015 we reserved a room for... More

This place is magical! It is romantic, fun and serine. The night we were there the sunset was beautiful, and there was lovely live music during dinner that was not too loud to detract from the experience. Our waiter Alahin, assisted by Juan, made the experience elegant and friendly! It was the high point of our time in Puerto Vallarta!
