Riviera is set apart from the strip mall cluster of restaurants in the Pardise Village area of Nuevo Vallarta. It is a very open floor plan, with a center area completely outdoors and a couple of other areas that are covered but open. Nice bar complements the fresh ingredients and solid cooking. The scallop appetizer was superb, and the tuna steak was nicely done as well (although a bit on the smaller side, so if you are a big eater, get an appetizer). The staff is very friendly and attentive, and the prices are reasonable (about 200 pesos for a main course). The setting alone makes this place worth checking out!

You'd drive past it without noticing it, but Riviera is worth a stop for dinner. Although right along the road across from the hotels, it is really pleasant inside. They've done a nice job of separating the (all outdoors) restaurant into several areas. The portions, while not huge, are good and fresh. The bar has a couple LCD TVs and they have a music duo playing pleasant jazz some nights. We had a couple different entrees: shrimp and mahi-mahi from what I recall. We also liked the soups and salads that we ordered. We didn't care for their rolls, but big deal. They have a decent compact wine list, although we stuck with margaritas. Friendly English speaking staff. The owner (?) from Toronto invited us to sit at the bar with some (free) tequila to watch the OT of a hockey game after our dinner - nice touch. Definitely worth a visit.
