Love the New Location

We have been twice to the new location for Riviera Maya in Alton. The new restaurant has the same friendly faces, same great food and service, but a more Mexican feel. The new place reminds me more of restaurants that we visit in Mexico and I like that. Go and enjoy this great place.

First visit for me. Music was too loud, forcing people to yell to be heard. Large group of very loud customers, obviously enjoying themselves added to the difficulty hearing and communicating with the waiter. Bill was incorrect, and because we had a $10.for $20. worth of food he accused us of only coming for the "free food". which was rude... More

This restaurant recently relocated about 1/3 of a mile from their former location. I like the decor, the food is pretty good and the service was OK. My biggest problem was the trio of musicians who were moving around the restaurant during our visit. The noise level was way too much. While I am OK with the idea of creating... More

typical Mexican food, chips were warn and not too oily. Interesting fact is that beans were not on any of the meals. You had to order them as a side dish. Had fish tacos which was only lettuce and fish, but what made up for them was their chipotle sauce that they make there. Had nice kick to it

A nice restaurant conveniently located near Alton Mall, Riviera Maya has great lunch and drink specials. For dinner, I had the Yolanda and my wife had Enchiladas Rancheros. Both were affordable and delicious. Wait staff was friendly and helpful, even returning my ball cap to me when I left it in the booth. "The cap of champions" the gentleman called... More
