We were used to the other Vista Grill because of the food and the view. When they moved I was little disappointed but we decided to give this one a go. Vista Grill did not disappoint food and the view was still perfect on the beach. Don’t forget to get the Sexy Coffee! Highly recommend.

This was our first time to the beach location. We enjoyed the hillside location on several occasions previously. We were not disappointed. The food was fantastic. My husband and I started with a tuna tartare app and had the “from the sea” entree if I recall the name correctly. The fish was so fresh. Monster scallops and prawns and the most tender octopus we’ve had. We were thrilled they offered kid friendly options for our picky 10 and 13 year olds. Service was great too. We were so full we had to skip the flaming coffee drink much to my kids’ disappointment. We will be sure to return next time we are in PV.

This meal was a 3 hour experience. We were seated at a table that was not completely set and had to eventually ask for the missing place settings. We finally had drinks after 45 mins. The bottle of wine we ordered was bad (not their fault, but it didn't help). The food took an extraordinary amount of time to arrive. The servers did try. They brought us a complimentary appetizer while we waited and apologized for the slow kitchen. When it did arrive, the food was marginal. All in all, a bad experience that I wouldn't repeat.

Vista Grill on the beach is where we bring every guest from out of town. You get beautiful ambiance, sunsets, beach, pier changing color. Combine all of that with excellent food and we always top off the meal with Mexican coffee made at the table, such a great show with the flames and tastes so good. Enjoy!

 (Denver)·Dined on November 5, 2016

I made a reservation which was confirmed by email. When I showed up at the restaurant the doors were chained closed. There was someone there telling me to go eat at La Palapa and my reservation would be honored. We did not go to La Palapa because we wanted to eat on the mountainside with a view. We went to a different restaurant and were very disappointed. I am very disappointed in the lack of customer service from Vista Grill--they had my phone number and my email and could have easily sent me a text or an email about my reservation, but they did not. Will not go back and give this a try the next time I am in PV.

Researched the PV restaurants to select the 5 best for my recent vacation in the area. Vista Grill was the favorite hands down! The view is spectacular, the food great and the service impeccable. Do not hesitate to go along with La Palapa and Porto bella in the marina area!

Excelent restaurant. Contemporary mexican-fussion food full of good options, excelent service and extra treats (welcome mini-drink, extra snack between dishes), friendly waiters, diverse wine list for all tastes and prices.
They have a small and large portion for some dishes; it is convenient to taste an appetizer and an entree and make it to the dessert. Portions are normal and well balanced, the view of the bay is very nice to see the sunset
Excellent for quiet dinner
Good music and ambiance

My mom and I went on a weekend vacation to Puerto Vallarta to celebrate my 35th birthday. We looked at reviews for local restaurants and booked our reservation. We did so to coordinate a sunset dinner and could not have asked for a better experience! From the staff to the food to the magnificent view...everything was excellent. Could not have asked for a better place to celebrate my birthday. Will be returning in the future. Ask for Christopher...he was our amazing waiter :)

Wait staff greeted me at the door as I arrived in my taxi. Promptly seated me at the outside corner table with a great , if not best view, of Puerto Vallarta and the oncoming sunset. The ceviche was fresh and the entrees" from the sea " and the "camarones de relleno" were superb. As the sunset we took pictures and enjoyed one of the better flan dishes that I have ever had.

Wonderful setting in Puerto Vallarta...with a 180 view of a beautiful city. The service was exceptional, as was the setting.

We were seated in the upstairs section of the restaurant, so it was quieter but significantly warmer, with little air circulation.

Overall a wonderful meal and experience.

I found Vista Grill when searching for a great place to eat with wonderful views of Puerto Vallarta. We sure were in for a treat as this place sits a top overlooking the entire city and into the ocean. Absolutely spectacular and the food was delicious. We spits a bunch of appetizers and a salad. Ceviche, Mussels, Seared Tuna and I believe the cesear salad. All of which was delicious! Highly recommend.

We will return every time we come to Puerto Vallarta.

While we were on vacation another guest at our resort recommended Vista Grill to us. We made a reservation for 8pm for four people two of which were 6 and 10 years of age. They thought the atmosphere and food were great. I would highly recommend this establishment for all reasons. The view at sunset will blow your mind.
