Look at the view....Awesome. The food always will taste better when all your doing is looking around and farther away, soaking up sun, sunsets, fresh air and good food. Just go, chill, have a drink, enjoy the meal. And bring your camera. Food and service are great. We ate outside on the beach. Desert and coffee with sand in your... More

I went here for my birthday dinner in October. The main draw here was that the view was supposed to be one of the best in the city. And it is if the night is clear and not overcast. Looking from high up top on the hills over the city was spectacular, especially after it gets dark and the city... More

We had drinks and appetizers and watched the sun go down. The Salmon Taco and the Octopus were delicious!

Absolutely breathtaking view of Banderas Bay! Food was fantastic and staff was friendly and prompt. This is a "must see" attraction when in PV.

We ate here upon recommendation from our tour captain. It was a little pricey compared to most our other meals that week but in the end very worth it. The location was good right on beach. The service was ok but they had a huge party that night so I think most attention was on that party. Food was excellent.... More

They have moved to the beach next to Palapa Restaurant. . Many people don't know they moved. Although the new location is not from the hill, it is done well. :

Our waiter, Alohin, was excellent. We miss the "on the hill" location, but the food and service were superb. This was the best dinner we had in PV.

Loved the Vista Grill "up the hill" and visited every time we're in PV, sometimes more than once. They've now been relocated to El Dorado on the beach, a perfectly lovely location but not much of a unique view. In fact, their sister restaurant La Palapa is next door! It's probably just "teething pains" in the new space but our... More

We booked a sunset dinner and had the best meal of our lives. Drinks and atmosphere were to die for. We had octopus over a black bean puree. Spent several hundred dollars and it was well worth it!

Amazing service, incredible food and romantic ambiance. Worth every penny. Sitting in the sand right by the ocean was delightful.
