Heard of Ocean Grill from a friend and took the 30 min drive south of the city to Boca Tomatlin where you catch a restaurant provided boat to the location. After a short boat ride you arrive at a secluded cove and dock. We were seated immediately and the service was spot on. The waiter was available without being intrusive.... More

My husband and I hiked our way up to Ocean Grill from Boca after passing a bridge. Hike is about 45 minutes long. Give it about an hour if you plan on stopping for rest or to take in the site for pictures. The hike was well worth it for me... granted it kicked my behind going uphill at couple... More

I do recommend the restaurant for the experience, however, the food was a bit disappointing. Oyster appetizer was fantastic, but for some unknown reason they do not serve 1/2 dozen or dozen portion, instead you get 4 oysters, a bit strange...Margarita was too sour, and they remixed it a couple of times, and still not very good. Mojito's were so... More

We went to the Ocean grill for the 1pm seating and it was great. The service was good ,food was tasty and the view was amazing. Went with a group of six and will go again next time we are in PV.

We have been coming to Ocean Grill since shortly after they opened. Alfonso, the owner is so welcoming and his entire staff make you feel at home. We brought our friends for their first visit and they couldn't stop talking about it all the way back to Nuevo Vallarta. The ginger-mint margaritas are addicting. We all ordered the mahimahi and...

I can't really say anything but "an incredible dining experience". The setting is unique, they offer only three mid-day seating times and only take enough reservations to fill the place. Primary access is via the restaurant's water taxi from Boca de Tomatlan. This is not a restaurant that can accommodate patrons who have mobility or ballance issues. As a bonus,... More

We were at the 1pm sitting on Nov. 30. Our meals were delicious and the service was great. My only suggestion is the restaurant needs new, more substantial cutlery. May sound weak but so are the current utensils. Still a must visit in PV.

This was the high light of our trip to PV, the bus ride to Boca was like a roller coaster ride, lots of fun. The boat ride was great and it was the best burger, the staff have no problem with sharing and the cost was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend it and we will be going every time... More

We took a taxi from Puerto Vallarta to Boca de Tomatlan. It was 200 pesos and approximately 25 minutes. After waiting a few minutes until our designated pickup time (10:45), we were picked up by the purple shuttle boat to Ocean Grill.The shuttle ride was short and calm. Upon pulling up to the dock, we were greeted by the resident... More

A must go when visiting Puerto Vallarta. The house margarita is refreshing and the prawn entree is fantastic. We will certainly be back next time we are in PV.
