We had the pleasure of dining at this establishment tonight for dinner. We were greeted with a warm welcome by the hostess and our waiter was knowledgeable and courteous. Most important, the food was delicious! By far the best I have had since arriving in Puerto Vallarta. The icing on the cake was the ambiance. We were seated on the... More

In Puerto for my son's destination wedding. Vista Grill is on the beach and just a couple blocks from Pinnacle 220 (great place to stay). Food and service was wonderful - had dinner on the beach one evening and lunch on a Sunday afternoon!

We were seated (without reservations) at a table on the beach with a great view of the sunset over the breakers. The service was very good, tasty food and reasonable prices.

The food was delicious and the service was great. The cost was very reasonable. The thing that made it most amazing was the view. Sitting at a table with sand under your feet while the ocean waves are heard nearby is amazing. Go during sunset for a particular treat. Amazing.

The Vista Grill has moved to beachfront right on the Malecon. The food, drinks, atmosphere were all simply great! Vista Grill, La Palapa, and El Dorado are restaurants in the same chain and are all REALLY good. Make no mistake, this is fine dining but you can do it with your toes in the sand if you like. Beautiful for... More

This was so delightful having a wonderful dinner right on the beach at sunset. Our teenage girls loved it and so did we. Excellent food and service. Walked around the Malecon afterward and it was a memorable evening for all of us.

Sadly I believe this restaurant closed and is sharing space now on the beach but my review is about the original restaurant up on the hill. AMAZING. Everything about it. Food, drinks, view, service, and price. Seafood is always so fresh. Try the octopus.

A friend suggested Vista Grill, and our party of four scored a dinner table on the beach without a reservation (lucky?). The setting at sunset is obviously wonderful, and the food lived up to the view. One in our group ordered a perfectly cooked steak (best he had on our trip), but your should really order seafood (their specialty) which... More
