The setting is great, the food was very good though the menu could be a bit more exciting. However the setting,food entertainment and service all make for a great evening out. Please order a Mexican Coffee! Fernando's presentation was the best we have ever experienced. Absolutely magnificent and delicious too! Thank you!

This was our second visit to the Riviera Grill. Our first visit was in 2012. It was recommended by 2 different people so we decided to give it a try. We enjoyed it so much we have recommended it to several other people. From the outside it doesn't look very promising - no curb appeal at all. But then you are walking into a Garden of Eden. Go at subset and watch all the torches being lit. The Margaritas are really good. The food has an Italian flair. The seafood lasagna special was excellent. The wine menu was good which is not always true in PV. The prices are reasonable. They had live entertainment both times we were there. Have a drink at the bar. A must visit if you are staying in Nuevo Vallarta!

Had a lovely time last evening in this off the beaten path restaurant. Tequila lime shrimp was excellent...fresh baked bread was excellent. Side veggies not so much, but didn't take away from great food experience. Service was top-notch. Atmosphere in the inner courtyard was lovely.

Wasn't sure what to expect when we walked into this restaurant, but were glad we did. Staying at Paradise Village Resort, this restaurant was within walking distance (a long walk) and you can feel safe walking the street.

We walked by a booth with a guy who gave us a coupon for a discount at this restaurant as long as we paid cash, so look for that.

Our group of 8 was seated in the "outdoor" section. We were covered with the side "wall" being curtains that were tied back so we could see outside (the view isn't anything spectacular.) The atmosphere is nice and there was an individual playing guitar and singing.

They had 2 specials of which one was jumbo shrimp. It was excellent! Portion size was more than enough. None of us could handle dessert afterwards although a few did have some after dinner drinks. Service was excellent.

Would definitely eat here again.

Almost anything on the menu that has shrimp is good. Service was good as was the live entertainment.
