First time came here, I don't know why. A great Mexican restaurant. We sat at the patio and it has a great set up. Margarita, salsa and chips and my order was all good. Everybody is so nice and want to help us. Will be back with the rest of the family.

Five us had lunch here at noon on a Sunday. There's nice outdoor seating but we sat inside because there was a singer, and we wanted to talk. The food, drinks and service are fantastic! This is a really great restaurant with reasonable prices and a cool atmosphere!

This surfer themed, family owned business is a staple with locals. Wonderful salsa, tortillas, grilled fish tacos, "charo" beans, and marguerites! Enjoy the free fruit chews on the way out.

This is a popular spot with the locals. Located at the north end of the Riviera Village. Do not order a salad here. This is a place for a taco or an enchilada. If you like Fajitas, they use a lot of bell pepper and onion in comparison to the chicken or steak. Margaritas are pretty good - I've had... More

What beats eating delicious fish tacos with fresh chips, salsa and a frosty margarita while being serenaded by live music? Wonderful experience. Whether you eat inside or outside, it's fabulous. Food is delicious. Recommend it highly.

My family has been coming to the Riviera for over 23 years and we are always happy and satisfied with the friendly, fast and consistently delicious food and service. Every guest that comes to visit us in Redondo knows to expect a margarita (on the rocks!) and a great meal on the patio. The inside is too noisy for good... More

Our family of 7 went for dinner here tonight. We got seated right away. Cute decor. Everyone loved their dinner - great food / reasonably priced. Service was excellent.

For one of the best Mexican meals in the South Bay, try the Riviera. It has the best free corn chips and fresh salsa of any Mexican restaurant in Southern California. You have to be careful not to eat more than 1 basketful or you won't be able to finish your dinner. They specialize in seafood plates, but traditional plates... More
