We went to Vallarta Grill for my birthday in September 4 of 2017. First of all, I am handicapped with difficulty walking. There are nothing but steps with uneven bricks, lumber and stones throught the restaurant floor. It was 30 degrees outside and 35 degrees...More

This Mexican restaurant is a short walk along Lakeshore Dr . It is a great place to eat. The food is always good and the service is also great. The prices are very reasonable.

The waiting staff were really friendlt and the music was good, and the positives end with that. The food and even the drink portions were undersized and overpriced. They even put Coronitas (mini Coronas) in our bulldogs instead of regular sized ones. After paying so...More

Can't tell you about the food. Walked in, stood at the front to wait to be seated; we could see it was busy, but what do you expect on a Saturday night. Who I can only assume to be the owner walks up to us,...More

Award winning Authentic Mexican Cuisine and the best Margaritas this side of the Mexican border. Served in an atmosphere that would make you swear you were there. Full bar, live entertainment, dancing, music videos and fun to be had by all!
Raised patio provides great view of Okanagan Lake and all the surrounding activities!
