Go for the view, stay for the margaritas and food!

The house margaritas are amazing blended minty drinks (that my brother says needs more alcohol). The shrimp ocean grill style and grilled plantains were delicious all while you overlook a beautiful cove and watch boats pass by.

went last year and was great--this year even better! we loved the extremely fresh mahi and the very personal service. The only thing that we didn't like was when we got on the pier to go on the ocean taxi to the restaurant about 8 to 10 minutes away via water taxi, a woman got outrageously upset with us, saying...

Great food, bit pricey, but so worth it. Go to eat, stay for a dip in the calm cove. The view and location is awesome. It was a favorite for my sister and her hubby. They want to go back every year too. We took the bus to boca (end of line) and walked to the "reserved" panga/boat and took... More

Everything at Ocean Grill is top notch -- octopus, catch of the day, sauces, shrimp, views, service, all of it. I recommend taking one of the earlier time slots and checking out the small beach nearby afterward with a couple of drinks back at the bar before taking the boat back.

This was our third time to Puerto Vallarta and I am so sad we didn't find this place until now! We took the bus down to Boca De Tomatlan which was an adventure in itself (fun by the way)! When we got there we decided to take the hike instead of take the free water taxi. After getting past the... More

It is located on & in the ocean . food is outstanding, getting there by water taxi is a blast. If you don't want to see owners animals don't go, but they are beautiful. Great experience and worth the trip from old town to Boca, stop at the zoo on the way back (or going) and make a day of... More

Ocean Grill restaurant is a delightful visit. More than just going to a nice restaurant, it is an adventure with the water taxi trip. Beautiful location with the beach, water and scenery. And the food and service are excellent!

By diamond in the rough, I truly mean rough. There are 2 ways to get to Ocean Grill. One by Water Taxi and the other by hiking. We opted for the easy way, via Water Taxi. But, maybe next time we'll rough it. I highlight next time as this is a "must do" anytime you're in Puerto Vallarta. The food... More

My boyfriend and I visited Ocean Grill Vallarta in March of 2014. We were staying up the road at Garza Blanca Preserve and were underwhelmed with the dining options so we decided to make a day of it and travel to Ocean Grill for lunch. We made a reservation for the earliest seating and arrived by taxi about 30 minutes... More
