Amazing View, Fun Ride

IIt is worth the bus ride and the little boat ride to get to this beautiful setting. We loved the whole experience. The food was delicious. Price about what you expect to pay for lunch. The trip to up to the bathroom is breathtaking!

I had heard about Ocean Grill and always wanted to go there. First of all the climbing in and out of the dingy boat was awful. Anyone could fall in the water climbing out! The food was so-so.I tried it once and I'm done! The food wasn't very good! The bathroom situation was horrible. Have to climb way up on... More

Without doubt this is a highlight. The setting is from a storybook. And of course getting there...... I loved the ribs and fish of the day, both with optional grilled veggies. Take your camera. And by all means meander to the restroom.

This is my favorite spot to eat in Vallarta. I have been going there for many years and it still has not disappointed. It is defenetley worth it! The minute you arrive to Boca de Tomatlan you know you are in for an adventure. You will maybe see other people gathering and waiting for their purple boat on the dock... More

My boyfriend and I both knew we wanted to visit Ocean Grill once we booked our trip to Puerto Vallarta. The hotel receptionist helped us book our reservation. It was a short visit to mismaloya from the barcelo hotel. We rode a purple boat to the restaurant. Once arriving we were greeted with open arms! We both had the fish... More

The very good rating is for the setting and ambiance. It is a fun excursion and a fun day trip for lunch. You will be picked up in Boco on their private purple water taxi (Live, Life, Love or something like that). Make sure you have reservations and lots of cash, no credit cards allowed. The boat ride is super... More

Just before leaving for Mexico, a friend described a place just south of PV that we had to try. She also recommended the hike in -- but more on that later. Ocean Grill is an incredibly unique and special destination. It doubles as a wonderful meal, a relaxing destination and an adventure in one. It began with that "hike" thru... More

First of all, this place is absolutely gorgeous! Bit of a trek to get there but could not be more worth it. And so amazing that the owner greets every single customer in the boat that picks you up to take you to the restaurant. Such a romantic setting and everyone at the restaurant is so helpful and inviting. It... More
