My wife and I just had dinner there on 2/17. We never made it to the old location, but the new location is wonderful. We walked in around 9:30 pm with no reservations got a nice table service was good - not great, but the atmosphere, food and location were 5 star. Would not hesitate to return.

Wanted to try the new Vista Grill, aka El Dorado. Went to this place for years for fun times on the beach during the day. The place has been done in a more upscale fashion, which changes the atmosphere, not so sure another pricey beach club was necessary with La Palapa next door. I was however impressed with my meal,...

We came here based on a recommendation and it was great. My fiance ordered the vanilla risotto and added grilled garlic shrimp and it was amazing best meal we've had. I ordered the lobster medallions and it didn't disappoint. Food and service was great. Our server was Cesar and he did an amazing job with everything as well as wine... More

As visitors to PV for 15+ years we had never been to Vista Grill at its old hilltop location. Decided to try the new location on the beach at El Dorado next to La Palapa. The setting is exquisite in the evening...unfortunately the rest of the experience did not measure up. We were seated next to the bar where wait... More

Had a wonderful meal on the beach in Puerto Vallarta. I've been to PV a couple of times, and this meal was a stand out for me. The biggest selling point is the setting. We made a reservation and requested being seated on the beach. The table is actually in the sand! So different from dining anywhere else. It was... More

We came for the view and setting, which did not disappoint. I wish I knew were others were dining who thought the food average or that better was available for less. We found the food at Vista Grill to be the best, by far, of all of the meals we had in PV. The plates were beautiful, portions very appropriately... More

Went here twice while in Puerto Vallarta, first with my family and and then again on the last night my girlfriend and I. We really enjoyed both dinners equally, the staff there was very friendly and did everything they could to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The drinks and food were equally as good and if you're going to... More
