Best Margaritas and Fish Tacos

This is a Southbay beach staple for great Mexican food and fantastic margaritas. Located in Redondo Village the Riviera has an extensive menu and a great Margarita and Tequila menu. They also have a varied menu for kids!

I had a very nice lunch of huevos rancheros for $9.00. I asked if I could substitute the rice and beans and was presented a lovely cabbage slaw with papaya and mango salsa. Very fresh, healthy and tasty. Service was very pleasant and accommodating. I really like the atmosphere inside. Patio is nice, too, but we ate inside. There is... More

Love the food, the surfboard ambiance and the wonderful outdoor eating patio-Often have a guitar player on the weekends for brunch and the little ones get to dance along.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the South Bay, in my opinion. They have a lovely patio area which is quieter than inside, with heat lamps. The service is always excellent and you get complimentary fresh salsa and chips. Some of my favorite dishes are seabass salad, chicken and avocado salad and pollo parillo which is chicken... More

Another night out for our family of 4 while traveling in LA. We tried out this Mexican place based solely on TripAdvisor reviews and what a find! I think I would eat there once a week if I lived in Redondo Beach. We got the mashed potato tacos as an appetizer but I could easily have ordered just that for... More

I love this restaurant! I've been coming here for years when I lived in Redondo Beach. Now that I that I live on Maui I make sure to visit Rivera Grills several times while on the mainland. The food is great and the margaritas are the best. I feel like I've come home while sitting at the bar. Please open... More

This is a very popular restaurant that has been in business for many, many years and is a favorite among locals. Because it is so busy, the noise level is atrocious, so don't plan to go and have much of a conversation with anyone across the table from you! The appetizers (guac and chips) are very good and quite addictive.... More

Great Mexican food. Fun atmosphere. Lots of food. We really love this place and my relatives who are locals eat here often. If you are in the Riviera and like Mexican, then you gotta stop here. I'm gluten-free and they have many items that are naturally without flour.

Beach and surf decor put you in the fun mood for wonderful Mexican food. Yes it's a locals place but staff welcomes everyone with great service. Family friendly - fish aquariums interest the kids and Sangria and margaritas add to the parent fun. Fish tacos and entrees are great.

I have now visited on many occasions usually with family or friends, if you are a large party I would advise making a reservation to avoid a wait. A typical wait without a reservation has been about 20 minutes, there is a waiting area with space heaters where you can enjoy a drink whilst eating tortilla chips and the good... More
