    This is one of our favorite restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. We were there celebrating our anniversary and enjoyed our dinner so much that we went back 2 days later! We've now been there on 3 separate trips and loved the breathtaking view each time. Our server Cesar was amazing!

    It was hot so that wasnt great yet where were seated outside the view was amazing. The food was very good yet some of the flavors were muddled. Can't remember exactly how. The service was great. We'd probably return in cooler weather.

    Absolutely great! I have eaten at many 4 and 5 star eateries and I can honestly say that overall the experience my girlfriend and I had at Vista Grill (while on vacation) rates in the top 10 restaurant experiences I have ever had. Great romantic views at sunset, fantastic food (both presentation and taste), and excellent attentive service. We were VERY pleasantly surprised!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/11/2011
    Vista Grill had come highly recommended to us, and my husband and I were thrilled to celebrate the last night of our honeymoon here. Dinner was delicious - a choice between the traditional menu and the special "Festival Gourmet" chef's menu. We ordered starters/mains off of both: seared tuna sashimi, lobster risotto, filet mignon, and duck breast. Everything was great, especially the flaming coffee show and surprise dessert with "Happy Honeymoon" written on the plate. Service was excellent and the staff were friendly. We will definitely be returning to Vista Grill when we visit Puerto Vallarta again.

    It was Mother's Day and options were limited, took a chance here. Had a decent time, but it was disappointing for the price. Most, not all, but most of the food was mediocre. Definitely avoid if possible.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 4/3/2011
    Two brothers each own outstanding restaurants in Puerto Vallarta: Vista Grill and La Palapa on the beach. Each is equally amazing. The food at both is excellent, but the menu's are different so you don't feel like you just ate the same thing. We had planned to visit Le Kliff for the view, but glad we changed our mind as the view here is excellent overlooking the entire city and bay from high above, and the food was more upscale. Our service was very attentive, but not overbearing. This restaurant knows how to impress!

    What an incredible view of downtown Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay! My wife and ate there on a recent trip and it was the dining highlight of our vacation. Food and drinks were great and the ambiance of the place was very nice. The service was a bit slow, but we did not mind given the scenery. Would definitely recommend and will absolutely go back on our next trip there.

    We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. We weren't sure what neighborhood it was in so we hopped in a cab & went there early thinking we could grab a drink at a bar in the neighborhood. It turns out this restaurant is toward the top of a hill & doesn't have any bars/restaurants nearby, and we'd gotten there about 30 minutes before they open! We were standing outside trying to decide what to do when one of the waiters who was just coming on his shift stopped us & said we could come inside & they would be happy to serve us a drink and let us enjoy the view while they opened the restaurant. The evening just got better & better from there as the food was amazing, service devine, and view SPECTACULAR!

    Excellent choice as the location is high above Puerto Vallarta so the sunset is magnificent and the view over the rooftops overlooking the Pacific Ocean are breathtaking. The menu is varied with fish and meat options and the service was attentivie without being overbearing. They recommended good dishes and we had a wonderful overall experience. It was our last evening in Mexico and the Vista Grill is a good choice for a farewell meal!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    AMAZING view of the entire city of PV! Kind of a scary cab ride up there but once we got there, we enjoyed our entire time! We made sure to get there before sunset so we could watch the entire sunset. It was INCREDIBLE! Not only that, the food was the best out of all the places we went in PV. My only recommendation is to dress lightly because it can get a little hot, especially if you're going before sunset. It is an open air restaurant. They have fans but it still can get a bit toasty when the sun is on you. For women, I would suggest a short flowy sundress and for men, I would suggest a short-sleeved polo and nice shorts. YOU WILL NOT REGRET YOUR EXPERIENCE HERE!! P.S. Get the flaming Mexican coffee for dessert!

    We loved everything about this place, from the scallop petals appetizer to the raspberry delight for dessert. The artichoke soup was complex and subtle, with just the right garnish of smoked salmon, fennel and tempura. The grilled shrimp with coconut-guanabana sauce was spectacular.
