    El lugar está muy bonito, la comida está rica, la carta es reducida pero tiene variedad, los términos de la carne son mal manejados pero hubo unos muy buenos como el aguachile que está deliciosos y en general la vista. Mal el cómo llegar, no hay indicaciones de donde es el embarcadero y ahí piden que si vas atrasado masques y avises y nunca contestan el teléfono, eso fue lo negativo además las embarcaciones del propio restaurante que te llevan ahí no tienen techo y el sol era muy intenso, pero en general bien!!

    We visit this restaurant whenever we’re in Puerto Vallarta. Have always had great experiences. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of order red meat instead of fish. My BBQ Ribs we’re good but dry and difficult to separate from the rack and bone. This will not deter us from returning. The service, ambience and overall experience is well worth it. One final note: don’t be leary of taking a cab or uber to the village. There are an abundance of cabs to return you to PV.

    I was very disappointed about this place. Looks very rundown like no one’s care. Just my opinion. Food was good. Overpriced. Is sad that a wonderful place like this is been let go. They need to keep maintenance going.

    Lovely food, service and atmosphere. It was a unique experience , probally our favorite whilst our stay in PV. I struggle a bit with the prices of things in Mexico. We are from Canada and we find things to be similarily priced to back at home. However, the lack of infrastructure in Mexico, and the availability of fresh local food is quite different between the two countries. It feels a bit like we get price gouged in Mexico. Anyhow, this was by far our best value for money experience in PV. Definately worth the visit. We hiked there and took the water taxi back. I wouldn't recommend hiking back if you've had beverages over lunch or dinner as some areas of the hike are a bit challanging.

    Palapa build on the top of a rock right above the Ocean and waves underneath you what else can we ask for if not coming back there with great unique margarita recipe and good food ! It was a first for my brother coming to this amazing place starting with that short boat ride to get to that gem .

    It’s a special place. The food was all very fresh and well prepared. The house margarita was delicious. The service was very good although there was just one waiter for all the tables. We did not feel rushed at all. The bathroom is not to be missed. We hiked and took the boat back. The hike was more strenuous than I thought it would be from a video of it I saw. There are also a few rickety little foot bridges to cross on the path. The restaurant has a purple boat that says Ocean Grill on the side, so look for that when you get to Boca de Tomatlan.

    This was our third time to visit the Ocean Grill. The menu was different and we all thought the was good, but in the past the food was exceptional. It is to bad the little beach area we always enjoyed is now being used by so many others. It is no longer a hidden gem.

    Food quality was poor and way overpriced based on other restaurants in town. Service was slow. Advertised a "private beach". Definitely not private. One person ordered the rib and it was pure fat. My shrimp were cold, just an overall disappointment.

    Ocean Grill was a highlight of our trip to PV. Well worth the drive...the drive from our resort in the cab was fun on it's own. Have the cabbie stop on the way for a few pics, they'll know the spots.   We booked the 3pm seating and hopped on the boat at about noon. definitely do this as the beach is fantastic on it's own!   p.s. hit the head even if you don't have to go!
