We went for dinner. The food was excellent. Our best meal that we had the whole 7 nights we were in Nuero Vallarta. I had tuna steak, with mash potatoes and steam vegetables. The mash potatoes were amazing. A mix between regular and sweet potatoes. The tuna was delicious and we had the flaming coffee for dessert. What a great... More

Went here twice while we were in this area. Food was really good and they had entertainment. Wide selection on food and all 6 of us ordered something different and it was all very good. Wait staff was also very attentive. Would recommend!

Almost missed it this year.. 14 days here and very close to paradise village we were caught up trying other restaurants.

With extra benefit of good deserts... More

The food was very good. I especially liked the tortilla soup but the crab cakes were very good as was the shrimp and tortillas. The singer was excellent and sang a great James Blundt.

Had breakfast at the Riviera Grill this morning. It was delicious. My daughter had the red velvet pancakes and my son had Nutella French toast and they both said it was the best they ever had. The eggs and bacon were cooked perfectly. I would highly recommend this place for breakfast.

Combination of Bandaras Bay lobster, filet, and BBQ'd ribs! This meal for two was delicious, with a large amount of food for a couple with extra to take home. The platter was not inexpensive but considering the items that were included, reasonable. A very short walk from Playa Royale and plans for a return visit are underway. Recommended.

Been here before, was good. Was told by fellow vacationers last year was not good. We decided to give it a chance, what a surprise! Fantastic! Live entertainment, great food and drinks at a reasonable price! Told our fellow vacationers that it was definitely worth giving it another try!

No reservation required, even on U.S. Thanksgiving evening when the restaurants at our resort were very busy. Had very attentive service, plenty of options on the menu plus a turkey special because of Thanksgiving. Our waiter spoke excellent English, the prices were good, they take credit cards, and there was live music the whole time we were there (8-9:30 p.m.)

First time back this year & the salads & fish were good, as always. Jacob is a great waiter & we really enjoy the guitarist that plays there.

Service was great, very attentive. Menu has seafood and steak. My wife enjoyed the caprese salad and tempura white fish. My filet was cooked properly, but wasn't the best filet of local offerings. Drinks and wine were very solid, about average with local choices. Given that it's a short walk from our resort, we will come back again. The ambiance... More
