    What a find, and what an amazing place. You can only get there by boat but it’s a piece of heaven. The food is wonderful and the view breathtaking. The only thing is that they only take cash. Thoroughly recommend this great experience.

    This was our second trip and it was, once again, amazing! It is the most beautiful and special setting for lunch. When you ride up on the boat it is just spectacular. It is our go to spot when visiting. We HIGHLY recommend it.

    He sido cliente de Ocean Grill desde hace más de 9 años y en esta ocasión la calidad y sabor de los alimentos han decaído considerablemente, no así sus precios. Así mismo, el lugar se nota descuidado con una falta de mantenimiento importante en general. Ojalá puedan corregir estos aspectos para volver nuevamente al lugar que era antes, de lo contrario ya no vale la pena.

    Such a great experience, totally worth the coordination with the water taxi and drop off at boco de tomatlan. Definitely do recommend securing your driver to come pick you back up from the pier later that day at a specific time. It can be hard to get cab back to the hotel. But planned right, it’s a great experience and Wilson was adorable.

    Every bit of food was delicious! I was set on getting the octopus but due to the freshness (delivered daily) and the slow cooking, it wasn’t available yet at our 11am seating so go later if you want it. That said, the salmon I chose was so full of flavor and a good portion size! Service was outstanding and the view can’t be beat.

    Extraordinary people, place, sounds, view, the worst problem is that you close at 5:00 pm which is understandable, I would recomend to be before the sunset, at the time in the date to apply !!!

    The Ocean Grill is definitely a must visit if you are in this area, from the drop off point at Boca, where you are welcomed by friendly locals, it feels like something out of a James Bond movie with the lush setting, boats and little coloured buildings. You need to walk over to the stone jetty where you get collected but the guys in the Ocean Grill shirts, who take you over on the water taxi. The food and drinks were really tasty, you obviously pay a little more for the setting and experience. Service was really great too. The only downside to our visit was that there was no transparency beforehand about the time you can have there, I felt a little rushed eating my food, the starters didn't come together and I was still eating mine when the main meal came out, a little time to breathe in between courses would have been appreciated, especially as the portions were quite large. I just felt like they were trying to turn around the tables to get the next truancy of people in there. It was our friends birthday too and I did make a note about whether they could do something special, a little table decoration or dessert with a candle but they clearly hadn't read the notes with our booking which was a shame. The family jumped into the sea after and lots of amazing pics took, overall a fab experience and would defo still recommend it.

    When In Puerto Vallarta The Ocean Grill is a must do experience. Set in a small cove a short boat ride from the village of Boca De Tomatlan: excellent food and service in a very quaint hillside restaurant over looking the water. We had the smoked Marlin tostada’s; Sashimi tuna, jumbo grilled prawns and fried plantain with vanilla ice cream. All food was top quality and cooked to perfection. The Texan

    Our water taxi ride was late, we didn’t get on boat until 11:25. We had to leave at 12:45, even though they said we would have 2 hours to eat and hang out at the beach, but we had only an hour 15 minutes there, otherwise we’d have to wait until between 2:30-3 pm for another boat ride back. We were disappointed with the food. The fish were frozen, even the catch of the day, mahi mahi was not fresh and over cooked. Mixed veggies salad dish was mostly bell peppers.

    Very cool spot. A little expensive. Not as fancy as I thought it was going to be. I guess it really is just a beach place with $45 steak. But it was perfectly seasoned.

    It's an adventure to get to the restaurant. We were staying at the Hard Rock Vallarta and the dock is 23 miles from our resort, which is almost 1.5 hours in a taxi with A LOT of speed bumps, ha! The dock is older and the steps are steep for anyone that may have a challenge going down steps and balancing to get onto a boat. However, if you are capable its a fun outing! Upon arrival, we were greeted by Wilson and Matilda the resident dogs (so cute.) Our server, Alejandro was wonderful and very knowledgeable. He also helped to secure us a water taxi all the way back to the marina near the Hard Rock, which was much more pleasurable than the road taxi, ha! Overall, it was a unique dining experience with wonderful food, cool location and amazing views! If you are looking for something different to do in Puerto Vallarta then add this to your list. :)

    interesting spot. The water taxi was ok. No interaction with the 2 person crew and the boat actual smelled (not of the sea!). Parts of the restaurant are in in disrepair, ie missing or broken stair rails. Single restroom, door handle falling off (gentleman got in and needed help getting the door reopened). Food was very good. could tell the chef is into what he is trying to accomplish. Service was very good. Friendly, knowledgeable. But when we ordered the grilled oysters, we asked how many in an order, as our table of 4 each wanted one to start. The waiter stated two, so we ordered 2 orders. Never told us they were the largest oysters we have ever seen. Literally 4+ inches. priced high, $8.50 US per oyster. But the fresh fish, huge shrimp and octopus were wonderful. Good for a one time adventure. Not quite up to its brochure or sales spiel.

    What an experience! 🤩 I viewed the menu prior to coming so that I knew what they offered and what to expect. I ordered the grilled octopus, ceviche and oysters. The oysters come in 2…but boy are they HUGE (that’s what she said)! 😂😂😂 You definitely cannot swallow these! They’ll have to be cut & can easily be shared with a party of 4! 😋after our meal, we were allowed to jump in the water!…so bring your swim suit and towels ‘cause you can not come all this way to not get the full experience! Matilda (black pug) was definitely an added bonus to our experience! Sadly, Wilson was napping so we didn’t get to see him. Ps. If you do jump in the water, be prepared for jellyfish stings. 🤪

    Ocean Grill did NOT disappoint! They picked us up right on time in Boca de Tomatlan and the water taxi ride to the restaurant was only about 5 minutes. We spent the full 3.5 hours there enjoying the restaurant views and small beach. The food was great and our waiter was amazing! We’ll be back! :)

    My second time in a week! I'm usually the guy that looks around the table and thinks "I wish I would have ordered that". This week, I had ordered the dish that everyone wish they had ordered--the shirt ribs. WOW - they were fantastic. The Aqua-chilies are also a must! Alejandro (server) was great and so friendly. Good job OG!

    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.
