“Exquisite View, First-Rate Service, and Outstanding Food”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Went to Vista Grill twice during my last stay in Puerto Vallarta. Both times were just around sunset and the views were spectacular. The restaurant also entertains with lovely music throughout dinner. Our meals on both occasions were really exquisitely presented and had flavors that will keep us coming back for years. The value from our perspective was great, although we understand that the prices are a bit on the high end for PVR (relatively speaking). The other feature that truly impressed us was the masterful service. We were well attended throughout our meal by all servers, each more polite and respectful than the next. Great experience!

“Best Food/View in Town”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Wonderful food and the view is magnificent. I like to go about an hours before sunset - around 8:00 pm. It is on the side of a mountain with great seating outside where you can watch the lights come in the city with a view of the ocean, city and church. It's a bit pricey but the food, service, and view are worth every cent.

“Pinnacle of our PV vacation”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We chose Vista Grill for our last night in PV and my birthday dinner! We made the right choice! This was not our first time there, and it proves to be always better than the last time! Spectacular view, superb service..... delicious, artistically prepared food, and the best ambiance anywhere! Live spanish guitarist (similar to Ottmar Liebert in sound/style) played throughout our meal. Vista Grill also has the best flambé coffee experience, better than anywhere else we have been and we order Mexican coffee anywhere and everywhere we can (so unique to Mexico and fun!) Little known fact, there are two levels of terrace/open air spaces above the restaurant that can be rented out for weddings and or any special occasion that are simply gorgeous, check it out next time you go!
