Great Ambiance - there is patio and booth seating with colorful and vivacious decor. The bar is definitely a highlight and a great place to meet locals. Good variety fish, chicken and beef - Baja Style dishes. I recommend Papaya Grilled Chicken and the Lobster Taquitos. The staff is very friendly and have a happy family atmosphere - as many... More

This place was better than average, though not amazing. Service was good and prices were reasonable. Parking is in the back.

Dependable standard dishes and drinks, friendly and efficient staff, and good value in a setting worthy of rural Mexico! This is my umpteen visit in the years I have been visiting Redondo Beach.

This place has the perfect mix of atmosphere and menu. This is not the typical Mexico an food served in most restaurants. This is Baja California food which is lighter, fresher and much more reliant on seafood. My personal favorite is the "Corona Beach Fish Tacos" plate. I have brought many out of town guests here over the years. Every... More

Always fun to sip a margarita and eat the high quality food served on their well- appointed patio. Even in the winter the heaters make it a place you will want to linger at. Try their excellent seafood items and cheese enchiladas.

Lunch or dinner or Sunday brunch, when you're hankering for good Mexican food in the South Bay, Riviera is it. Fresh, fast, with great service, loads of chips and salsa, Riviera Rocks. Speaking of Rocks, check out the Margaritas, they're fantastic!

We have been eating at the RMG for over 10 years, and the food is always fresh, and good. The blend of spices are just right, not too hot, or not too bland. The staff is great, and on a nice night, it's great to sit out in the patio and enjoy dinner.

We have been going to Riviera since its opening. It has been a while since we’ve been there so we returned recently to see what’s new. The servers are still gracious and friendly but the service has continued to be very slow and spotty for a number of years now. This place gets too busy to really deliver the personal... More

This cool cantina has it all. After one bit of their fresh chips and salsa you'll be a believer too. I got a combo which was reasonably priced and delicious. The margaritas were on point too. The service was attentive as well. I love the Riviera and will be back

Can't get enough of this delicious burrito. It comes wet with three different sauces and sides of guacamole and sour cream. Although I forgo the sour cream, the guacamole compliments the burrito nicely. Always eat half of the burrito at the restaurant and bring home half for later. Salsa served with corn chips is also delicious. Service is great: attentive... More
