“Highlight of our trip so far.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We took the bus to Boca where the water taxi picked us up for a short ride to the restaurant. There was a tour group in the cove when we arrived, but were gone before we finished our meal. We were met with excellent service, cold towels and a table in the shade. We ordered the house special mint margaritas and they were amazing. The clams and smoked marlin were delicious appetizers. My husband will be talking about the octopus he had for a long time, the best he's had. The shrimp were large and my favorite part of the meal was the fried pla tains. Dessert was good as well. We had Tres leches and some friends really enjoyed the key lime pie. After our meal, we swam in the cove. Had the place to ourselves. We had another beverage from the bar before taking the last boat back to Boca. It was a great experience.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We didn't start off great. A group had rented out the restaurant and we arrived early and wanted to have a drink at the bar. The owner informed us that the group had complained and we had to leave and go to the beach. Well handled by the owner who was clearly embarrassed, but the group could have handled it better. After that, all was perfect. Went for a swim and came back for an amazing meal. The owner was gracious, grilled clams, shrimp and lobster were perfection. The view and space were wonderful. It's a little but of an adventure to find but so worth it.

“This restaurant is worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

We are currently here on a visit to Puerto Vallarta and a trip to Ocean Grill was on the top of our list. We have been to Boca many times, but we had never heard of this restaurant until reading about it on the Trip Advisor. I made the reservation online and had a confirmation em,ailed to me just a few hours later. We were promptly picked up by boat at the pier in Boca and arrived after a short ride. What an awesome place!!! Secluded, and beautifully situated on the side of a mountain, surrounded by the ocean and a small, private beach! We felt welcomed, met Wilson, the great dane, and were seated at a beautiful table. The food and margaritas were awesome, as well as the soft music in the background. Definately coming back next time we are in town, this place is a rare gem for sure!
