Ocean Grill is a wonderful destination restaurant. The best way to get there is by bus - you need to go to the Romantic Zone (across the river) and find the orange bus that says "Mismaloya". The cost is approx. 60 cents and it will take you right to Boca de Tomatlan (it is a great, scenic drive). Once there you simply walk through the town to the beach and wait for the water taxi to arrive at your pre-arranged time (there are places on the beach to have a cold beer while you wait). From there it is a 10 minute ride around the point and you are there - it's a lovely place and a great outing for the day. The food and drinks are good and my favorite part was the bathroom - not to be missed!

We had a very lovely lunch. The view is spectacular, food very good and fresh and the owner welcoming and inviting. We had a terrific time and thought the value was great since they have to bring everything in by boat. We will be back.

We were a group of five family members in our 60's and early 70's who took the bus to Boca and hiked in to Ocean Grill Vallarta. The hike took about 45 minutes. It had a few tricky spots but the trail is mostly easy to moderate difficulty. Going for a swim and /or ordering up a ginger/mint margarita is the first thing you do if you hike in. That is followed by some yummy appetizers - smoked marlin tostadas, guacamole, and ceviche. Entrees that were excellent included fresh catch of the day - parrot fish, grilled octopus with tapenade, and beautiful grilled shrimp. Wilson, the Great Dane was there in fine form and so was owner Alfonso. Many waves came crashing in which added to the uniqueness of the place. Getting into the "Live, Love, Grill" skiff to take us back to Boca was a little tricky, but the fellow handling the boat was quite skilled. Might have been better to run the boat onto the beach. Last year we visited OGV for the first time, so we could hardly wait to return this year - a very special and memorable outing. Now we look forward to returning next year!

The location is beautiful. But the view depends on what table they give you. Be aware if they don't have enough people for the 3:00 seating,they add them to the 1:00 seating. That would be fine,but they just can't handle that many people.Our table of four waited an hour and a half for lunch, fish and lobster( the lobster was under cooked). Less than average food. I would suggest packing your own lunch and taking your own water taxi to the near by beach. That would be a better food experience!

Great views.......Great little beach ..unless the tide is coming in.........The food was OK..Not a octopus fan (but to be honest my wife and I didn't know) .....The service was OK, everyone was nice. I want to complain but really can't. I guess the only thing I can say is, I didn't feel it lived up to the hype.
