This restaurant seven the best Mexican cuisine in town. When my sister and I want this type of food, we are always satisfied at the Vallarta Grill. Prices are reasonable and during the summer months, the patio is great for outdoor eating.

This place has Great service and a good atmosphere, but the food was... In a word, average. Went here as part of a birthday party, and they've got a nice little dance floor and a DJ available making this place good for groups. But you won't find a fine dining experience here.

Popped in here back in March just when they were opening. Place was quite. We were the only table. We ordered and honestly, I was disappointed. The chicken Mole was rather bland, and the other beef dish we had had a strange flavor and texture to it. Ok, they're just opening, sure, I understand, it will get better. Took girlfriend... More

Brought friends visiting from Vancouver and was so disappointed. Server was not friendly and slow. Asked for water and received them only after asking twice. I had been once before and received complimentary chips and salsa which seems to be no longer. Food was good, not fabulous. We had chimichangas and prices seemed high for these and drinks. The deck... More

A group of us choose this spot due to its proximity to the beach. We passed by and I casually told the server we would be back in 5-10 mins and would like a table for 7.

My family and I went for a few drinks and food. Beautiful view from the patio! They had vegan choices for my family that was vegan. The guacamole was so delicious. Great price on the food and overall good atmosphere. If you like Mexican food, check it out. Only problem is they aren't open till later in the day so... More

Went here for dinner with family (6 of us) - food generally good, but the evening we were there, the service was slow (or perhaps they were short-staffed)

Award winning Authentic Mexican Cuisine and the best Margaritas this side of the Mexican border. Served in an atmosphere that would make you swear you were there. Full bar, live entertainment, dancing, music videos and fun to be had by all!
Raised patio provides great view of Okanagan Lake and all the surrounding activities!
