A must visit every trip to PV. The hospitality, in my experience is second to none in this region. Then there is the food selection and quality, equally as super as the staff.

As mentioned in other reviews, we found the jungle setting a pleasant surprise. My wife enjoyed the Mahi Mahi veracruz and I had the tequila lime shrimp. Was expecting smaller shrimp since they were slewered but they were large (jumbo by Colorado standards). Drinks were reasonably priced as was the food. The solo singer/guitarist and flaming coffee "show" rounded out... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times and it is my favourite in Nuevo Vallarta. It really looks quite sketchy from the outside. In fact, the only reason we ventured there was because we each had coupons for a free margarita. When we arrived, none of us wanted to enter but we figured we could at least poke... More

Zero. On a scale of 1 to 10, that's how much I wanted to try Riviera Grill when my husband suggested it. HOLY COW WAS I WRONG. It looks kind of simple from the outside, almost like, "seriously? we are eating here?" once we got through the front door it was heavenly. candles burning, beautiful linen tablecloths, oh my--the best...

This quaint little restaurant offers a good variety of main entrees as well as very pleasant wait staff. It had live music also which was a really nice surprise. The prices are reasonable and the food was delicious

We have always had great food here. We would eat here more but we are usually looking to have more Mexican dishes while in Mexico.

We were seated in the atrium which had a tropical sort of feel. Staff was incredible. A few bugs flying around because of the vegetation but not too bad. Food was fabulous and very reasonable. Gave us a 10% discount for cash. Planning to go back again in October.

I have been to Nuevo Vallarta several times and just now stumbled upon this diamond in the rough... Very unassuming place on the main resort road in NV. The ambiance is that of a chic open air tropical bistro. The natural native plants and wide ceiling fans kept us cool during the hot and humid evening. The food is outstanding... More

We found this gem toward the end of our stay in Nuevo Vallarta... across the street and one block down from the Playa Royale. We were seated in an atrium which had a cool sort of indoor-outdoor feel. It was a bit muggy, so the staff set up a fan to provide a breeze. The service was excellent. We started... More

Food was delicious. Charming spot. The staff was wonderful. The restaurant is very closed to Paradise Village where we stayed.
