The service was incredible. The food - amazing! I was unsure at first because this is right on the river inlet, and has a sandy dirt floor. But it turned out to be perfect! Outside covered dining, gorgeous ocean view, casual atmosphere, impeccable service and...then BAM the food is incredible! We had guacamole, shrimp Aguachiles, octopus, coconut shrimp, fajitas and nachos - everything was beautifully plated and very fresh and flavorful! Will definitely recommend and be back!More

My husband and I arrived to Grand Venetians late and as the El Oasis del Holi was right next to it, we decided to go there for dinner. We had an amazing view of the sunset, the food was delicious but as the place was...very busy, it took long to come. My husband had garlic shrimp in pineapple and a beer and I had coconut shrimp in pineapple and a margarita. The fifty US$ seemed a little steep to pay for it. There was a local band but it was very loud and not that amazing. We stayed at Grand Venetian for a whole month but did not go back.More

Whether a simple taco or a Mocajetti with cheese, beef, cactus chicken or one of their great shrimp dishes you won’t be disappointed. The coconut shrimp served on a cooked pineapple is the best I have had.

The view is beautiful for sunset watching but the rest yikes!! Creepy people in the parking lot kinda washing cars or something..they appear to live there in a structure on the outside...lots of rags and shopping carts full of stuff before you even enter. Old...used serving dishes for food presentation. Bathrooms..DO NOT GO THERE!! This is a dirty little beach bar, which may appear cool but for food and hygiene purposes I definitely will not return..doesn’t matter how great the food may be (didn’t want to order food after seeing the mess and unclean situation) ..just had a beer and left..yikes that is one scarey place regardless of the beautiful view, how the City of PV allows that place to stay open with no plumbing and fresh water is a very sad thing..beautiful location on the PUBLIC beach, could be soo nice..DO NOT USE THE BATHROOMS!! and the behind the scenes stuff in a restaurant tells it all..More

Our food was okay (fonduto arrachera and tacos arrachera), not great. Margaritas were served in chipped glasses. Tortilla chips must have been the end of the batch because they were in very small pieces; salsas were served in chipped bowls that I think had been...around all afternoon. The sand floor was littered with bottle caps, straws, paper. Dirty dishes were piled on trays around the restaurant and never hauled away. We had to clear our own table once we sat down. Service was poor. They were NOT busy. To top it all off, they tried to overcharge us. So if you want mediocre food and poor service in a dirty restaurant, this is the place!More

Very good food and friendly staff. The food is very good! The great thing about this restaurant is the proximity to the breach and constant ocean breeze. They also have live music in the evenings with well set up stages and lighting.

Great little hidden gem. We always stop by for a few drinks and some tacos. Usually always on our first night in Vallarta, to celebrate our vacation. Beautiful beach view, rustic little place with great service

The view at sunset is incredible. The coconut shrimp is really good. Nothing else at our table was worth the money. The service was really slow and not super friendly.

Yes you can walk it from the north. The river is shallow about waist high full of trash most days.
