“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Alfonso is an excellent host. His Ocean Grlll is now on our permanent must visit list. We loved being picked up by Ocscar in the Live Love Grill panga at Boca. The meal was the best we have had on this trip. Parrotfish with his Ocean Grill sauce. His house margarita made with fresh ginger and fresh mint is out of this world. And then we got to enjoy the Colomitos Beach. It is a cute little piece of sand. The ocean is fed by two small waterfalls coming from the jungle. We had a wonderful day and will be back next trip. Alfonso said he is starting a Boutique Hotel on the property, as well. The only downside was the bus ride back to town at rush hour. It really filled up and we were like sardines. Hard to get out. So, maybe leave a bit earlier than we did...end of the work day. And don't let Wilson, the Great Dane with maybe some Bloodhound mixed in, get near your towel. He is one big, strong puppy! Thanks for a wonderful experience, Alfonso! Good luck with your business!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a wonderful experience at the Ocean Grill. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and Wilson (you'll have to find out). The food was delicious, the view spectacular. After lunch, we walked to the beautiful beach and swam in the ocean. When we returned to the restaurant, we wanted to start lunch over again! We will definitely be back in December!

“It's all true, the best place ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Only in Mexico would you find a gem like this one. Fantastic food in a one of a kind setting. In the United States they would have regulated this place right out of business, happily this is Mexico! We had the grilled oysters, clams, octopus, the fish of the day, and the lime pie...ALL FANTASTIC. Did I mention the service? Natalie, you offered us informative and excellent service. I heard you answer the same questions over and over as if they were the first time you had been asked! You made a good decision to leave NYC and head to this place, you add much to the charm, which is almost impossible to do! Margarita’s very good, Alfonso’s smile (the owner), Wilson’s greeting (his dog) and snorkeling at the beach right below all add to the really interesting experience. You will be talking about this place for a LONG TIME, run don’t walk to this place. TIP: We hired Charlie from http://puertovallartadivers.com to take us out on a private snorkel trip to Los Arcos and then to take us to our RSVP (a must!) at Ocean Grill. $55/pp and the boat, the captain, the beer to yourself yourself…fantastic. It was just us three for the entire day. It was our best day in PV, thanks to Charlie, Natalie, Wilson and Alfonso.

“Ocean grill requires water taxi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We heard of Ocean Grill from a foodie at the airport going to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. After arriving we got the details--take a bus or taxi to the mouth of a river which ended up being a quaint fishing village. After beaching it for several hours we called the restaurant-- they sent a small launch which picked the four of us up. After walking along the cliff on a boardwalk, we were seated on a patio on a cliff-- beautiful view. We first had fresh oysters from the rocks below, slightly grilled with a light cheese and spices-- excellent. Three had fresh parrotfish, grilled alongside local vegetables. All three thought it was excellent. I had the fresh octopus, perfectly grilled alongside rice and a chutney- like tempanade. You won't find that on many menus! We shared a salted caramel ice- cream for desert. Ole'! Not the best food in town but very close. The entire experience however made the day!
