My wife and I recently stayed in Puerto Vallarta for three weeks, and we sampled many of the excellent restaurants that the city offers. The best by far was the Vista Grill. We ate here four times, and were never disappointed. The beach setting was perfect, but the restaurant is not content to rest on that feature, The food was... More

A gift from one of our "children" (now 33), the Vista Grill made an effort to make this a memorable meal to watch the sunset. The food, drinks, and excellent saxophone from "Oscar" were a nice touch, and the bouquet of roses on the table, the rose-petal strewn path to our table, and the conscientious service made this a special...

Beautiful evening meal on the beach. Waiters even bring out little blankets for those of us who forgot our sweaters! Excellent sea food platter. Would return here anytime for a meal.

If you are ready for a break from traditional tacos and margaritas, then make time for a delicious meal at Vista Grill. Located right on the beach, dining at sunset is a perfect way to end your day. The service staff will see to your every need, including offering a shawl as the temperature cools. The cocktail menu is creative... More

Girls Night Out - dinner on the beach! Nice menu, nice ambiance, excellent service, perfect setting! We were the last customers to leave and at no time did the waiters make us feel uncomfortable and pressured to depart.

The Vista Grill still has excellent food,but it is so close to La Palapa now, since its move to the beach, that was disappointing to us. We liked the mountain location better.

We have been eating at Vista Grill for years. Loved it when it was in the hills, but just as good on the beach. We've eaten at all the other restaraunts along the beach, but the food here is the best of all. Our waiter Gilberto and his staff were great. They took time to answer questions and were always...

We had dinner for 2, Romantic on the beach. We choose to sit on the patio but on the sand is preferred by most people. We had cream of corn soup, short rib sliders to start with and the osso bucco. It was all very delicious and we ended with out of this world avocado cream chocolate mousse. Live music... More

Made a late decision to visit VG earlier tonight. Great 7:30 reso right on the beach. Ordered the pear salad and half order of Del Mar, assorted seafood on risotto. Outstanding. Took our own high end wine, corkage was only 200 pesos a bottle which is way cheaper than markup. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Great Mariachi band dropped by... More
