The night we were there we had a beautiful sunset. We were seated on the rail. and they had a classical guitar player and he was excellent!! The service... More

We first visited this restaurant in 1988, when it had another name, and have thought about returning ever since. We returned (glad we did) and had a great evening in late October. The view overlooking Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas is spectacular, especially in the early to late evening (or later). The Restaurant itself is very clean and... More

View, location, atmosphere, food - this venue has it all. Service was a bit odd, sometimes too much and sometimes none at all but you are there for the view so enjoy. I can also recommend the Vista Grill sister restaurant down on the beach called La Palapa for breakfast. These are both great "destination" restaurants that offer an experience... More

We had a fantastic evening at Vista Grill. The staff was attentive. The view was beautiful. The Caesar salad was well dressed. The red snapper fish was fantastic. The flan was yummy. And the coffee presentation was spectacular! I recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I visited Vista Grill on November 2 for dinner to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We arrived just before sunset and were seated at the edge of the terrace where we enjoyed the most beautiful red, orange, and purple sunset colors. Throughout the evening a very talented guitarist filled the restaurant with lovely music to set the... More

The best meal of my trip! Ordered the catch of the day and it was superb. The wine was amazing. The waiters courteous and the view to die for overlooking the bay. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be back in February!

We walked in and then realized we had been here back in 1996 when Vista Grill had a different name. It was fabulous then and now. The service provided to us by Julian was first class and our dinner was superb. We would recommend this romantic awesome hilltop gem to anyone who enjoys fine dinning.

Made a reservation through Open Table. Go right before sunset so you can see the amazing view. The restaurant is gorgeous, romantic, and you can't beat the view! I had the Boneless Braised Short Rib with Bell pepper and habanero marmalade, sweet potato puree, snow peas, cranberry and cascabel pepper sauce - oh my gosh! Beautifully presented and delicious. Melted... More
