Best In South Bay

It seems a lot of chain Mexican restaurants have decided that diners do not want foods that are properly spiced. Not to say hot spice, but food that has the proper amount of spices that complement the dished. We have tried numerous Mexican places in the South Bay area, but always come back to... read more

A business associate recommended we stop here and I'm glad we did. Excellent salsa, good chips too. Ordered the lobster quesadilla ($12.95 for a lot of food) and it was very good. I'd recommend this place if you are in the area.

Just taking a walk down pch happened to look at my trip advisor app for a place to eat, a new place.. When my husband and I go on trips we will not eat at a chain restaurant. I am going to miss this place!! If you love margaritas just go ahead and order the pitcher. The waitress was awesome.... More

This boisterous restaurant is always lively with a fun beach-themed decor. The food is good, and the portions are very large so no one comes away hungry! This is a regular stop for our family when we are in the mood for good Mexican fare and a lively atmosphere!

This is my 3rd or 4th visit to this restaurant and one place we go whenever we are in town. Love this place and the food. Laid back, great food, and good location. I had the grilled fish tacos on corn tortillas for a great gluten free meal. Very good meal. Will go back. Love it.

I always enjoy going there and sitting outside. It was fun when I took some of my adult grandchildren to enjoy the outside dining and music.

Loved the chips and salsa and everyone in our group enjoyed their lunch. The steak quesadilla was the favorite and the kids burrito was also enjoyed by many. Definitely worth coming back. Service was solid and efforts to ensure we were satisfied were bountiful.

I am a local and typically we avoid the Riviera Mexican Grill as it is noisy and crowded. But, it was mid-week, very hot at the beach, I wanted to eat outdoors, and it wasn't crowded. We'd eaten here a couple of times before, with friends who drink, though we do not, and they loved the Margaritas. We weren't impressed... More
