Firstly the drive to the boat is scenic. The boat ride was easy to arrange and beautiful. And the location! It is so secluded. The staff was attentive and helpful. I loved their signature margarita and their smoked marlin tostada. If you are a dog lover, Wilson is a giant Great Dane. He is quite lovable.

This is a must see. Excellent food in a cliff side restaurant with a platform to dive into the bay a few feet away. The cove that it sits in leads to a terrific hike up and down the cliffs (nothing scary and no problem for 9yr. olds or 63yr. olds in fair shape) on brick steps that takes you... More

This used to be one of the places I would recommend EVERYONE I knew to go to. I have probably sent over 200 friends and family there, many multiple times. The food is still great, as are the margaritas, but sadly the owner has gone out of his way to make it impossible for groups to enjoy his restaurant. One... More

Hello, The "no bigger than 12 people groups" has been around for more than 4 years in our restaurant. We are not the only restaurant in the world that has a party size limit and there is nothing wrong with it nor is a personal thing. It is a question of respect and consideration for other people's business and how... More

Well the day started with a van ride downtown to old bus to Boca then a walk downhill to a wait for a boat the beach then a ride to OG. Cool facility to visit for lunch but the service and food are for the tourists. I still recommend this place!

Heard of Ocean Grill from a friend and took the 30 min drive south of the city to Boca Tomatlin where you catch a restaurant provided boat to the location. After a short boat ride you arrive at a secluded cove and dock. We were seated immediately and the service was spot on. The waiter was available without being intrusive.... More

My husband and I hiked our way up to Ocean Grill from Boca after passing a bridge. Hike is about 45 minutes long. Give it about an hour if you plan on stopping for rest or to take in the site for pictures. The hike was well worth it for me... granted it kicked my behind going uphill at couple... More

I do recommend the restaurant for the experience, however, the food was a bit disappointing. Oyster appetizer was fantastic, but for some unknown reason they do not serve 1/2 dozen or dozen portion, instead you get 4 oysters, a bit strange...Margarita was too sour, and they remixed it a couple of times, and still not very good. Mojito's were so... More

We have been coming to Ocean Grill since shortly after they opened. Alfonso, the owner is so welcoming and his entire staff make you feel at home. We brought our friends for their first visit and they couldn't stop talking about it all the way back to Nuevo Vallarta. The ginger-mint margaritas are addicting. We all ordered the mahimahi and...

I can't really say anything but "an incredible dining experience". The setting is unique, they offer only three mid-day seating times and only take enough reservations to fill the place. Primary access is via the restaurant's water taxi from Boca de Tomatlan. This is not a restaurant that can accommodate patrons who have mobility or ballance issues. As a bonus,... More
