The steak with BBQ sauce was tough and did not have a lot of flavor. The coconut shrimp was very good as was the steak and surf.

Our breakfast was really good with Mexican and CDN style selections available Our waiter was friendly and efficient. Plus the owner offers you... More

We were on a mission. We were coming from the farmer's market and were starving and walking to Fajita Republic (which, as it turns out, is not open for lunch, FYI) and saw this place on the way. We love trying new restaurants and wanted to give it a whirl. We both had steak tacos and they were wonderful! Food,... More

The restaurant itself is rather quaint, set on the edge of the jungle and fully open air. The service was good and everybody friendly but the food was somewhat of a disappointment. My wife fish was nice but I had the shrimp with anise and mint that a previous contributor raved about. I found the dish sweet and lacking depth,... More

We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there on 3 different days during our visit to Nuevo. Really pleasant service. Excellent food. All really good. Free pour margaritas. Help yourself to free oranges on the way out. Highly recommend. 2 drinks each + Split a meal = $500 pesos.

We just stopped here for refreshments after walking for a while. I asked if they had any olives as I was craving them badly so although they did not serve them on their menu the barman gave me a bowl of them. They were Spanish ones and very tasty. It was early afternoon so fairly quiet so we had a... More

We were told that Riviera Grill was a good place for Mexican food. There is a larger proportion of seafood dishes on the menu than Mexican food. We initially had good service, as we were seated right away (we did have a reservation), and drink orders taken pronto. Once we ordered our food, which was O.K., but nothing special, we... More

The service was prompt and pleasant. The appetizers were so good. We had shrimp ceviche, garlic bread and calamari. Our dinners were even better. Jacobs platter (lobster tail, shrimp and steak), BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp and coconut shrimp. Everything was fresh and delicious. I can't wait to return. This was by far my most favorite restaurant on our vacation.
