This place is great- we had a wonderful dinner on the beach! The service was attentive and the food was fresh and delicious! We can definitely recommend, also recommend Dorado grill (same place, one name for day one name for night) for a good beach day! Ask for Roberto at the beach he is great!

This is our second trip to Vista Grill. Both times we had Cesar as our server and he is wonderful, can't say enough nice things about the service we received. We also loved the new location, so relaxing and beautiful. We didn't want to leave!

Four friends for dinner and with only a couple hiccups we enjoyed our dinner. For appies ordered the scallops - a real winner!! and the mussels - a big disappointment. The mussels were in a tasteless broth and were not very good to the taste. We also saw another table that didn't eat their order. The bread also needs improvement... More

Each trip we take, we give ourselves one 'nice' dinner. This trip to PVR's nice dinner was Vista Grill, which is right on the beach. One thing that we have noticed on our two trips to PVR, is the amazing quality of service. People really take pride in what they do here. Vista Grill is no different. Our server, Carlos,... More

Alejandro, Luis and the crew gave us the best Oceanside lunch possible. They opened an Argentinian Malbec and served us farm to fork La Truitto salads. I love this place! Do not hesitate to come here, there is no where better!!!

I remember when this restaurant used to be on higher ground with a beautiful view. They have now moved next door to La Palapa on the beach. It's a beautiful setting of course but we weren't impressed with the food. We had Easter dinner at La Palapa next door and it was half as much and the food was better.... More

Vista Grill at night. Eldorado by day and are all part of the same group that umbrellas LaPalapa. Service is great food is every bit as good as LaPalapa but slightly different menu. Seating at the beach was much easier here. A very good alternative. Try it out. Dinner was excellent. Photo is of a yummy chocolate desert

We heard on Trip Advisor that the Vista Grill had closed down and moved.to the beach. Since we always visited the one on the hill, we decided to try the new beach location. It was,good, but not like the old one. Food and service were great, but miss the view.

Earlier in the week we experienced the EL Dorado Beach Club and We dined here on our last night in this spectacular city. It was amazing!! We find the service in Puerto Vallarta very good but this restaurant exceeded our expectations. We had a beautiful beachfront table. Food was delicious. View is breathtaking as the sun sets. This is a... More

We had our anniversary dinner here with six of our friends who traveled with us. All of us were impressed by the ambience, the decor and the attentiveness of the staff. Vista Grill definitely deserves its reputation as one of the most romantic restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. I made our reservation online a week before we actually went and Sofia,... More
