About the only restaurant in Nuevo Vallarta that answered the phone and said they would be open for dinner. About a 15 minute walk from our condo. Pleasant setting, some fans set up as it's still fairly humid. Service a little slow even with only 4 or 5 tables as there's basically one host/server, with a bar helper and one... More

We visited the Rivera Grill once again tonight. I am always impressed with their exceptional service. Tonight we enjoyed some of their menu speciaties as well as drinks.

We have been here many times and look forward to coming back. Food is good and the service is excellent. You can always leave with some fresh fruit from the owners garden. Thank you Ignacio Jose Luis.

We have dined here on several occasions and were glad we dined again this year. Hubby had the BBQ Bacon Wrapped Shrimp- OMG! I had the fresh Ravioli, another great selection! We shared the Lime Pinenut Pie which was another great choice.

Try the seafood lasagna and clam chowder. I was told the bacon wrapped shrimp was yummy. Great waiter. I tried the tequila brûlée, to die for.
