We went here for dinner on a Saturday night. We had to make reservations on OpenTable.mx. I could not make the reservations with my american account. You can only get there by boat and they have limited seating times, the last one being a 3:00 pm. The food was great, ambiance was a 10. They have a boat that picks you up at the dock in Boca de Tomlatan, It cost 100 pesos per person which the put on your check. Cash Only. The owner, Ernesto was there and checked in to make sure things were good. His great dane, Wilson, was wandering around which added to the experience. Well worth the effort to make the reservations and then find your way there.

After a year closed, the now open Ocean Grille retains all of the original charm, service, and great food--as well as of course the greeter Great Dane.

Our 2nd visit to OG, the first being four years ago.
Same beautiful experience, gorgeous views, restaurant in top shape, and really delicious food.
Met la patrona Wilsonia, Wilson’s replacement.
Sad to see that the beautiful pontoon wasn’t there any longer as this was another asset, hope a replacement is made soon.
We made our booking for Saturday at 1pm specifically as live music was advertised - fully understood that it is low season, but no band or music, so perhaps that could be noted on the website that in low season there is no music.
Will return again next time in PV.

Read about this gem and had to go during our group's trip to PV. The entire experience was an adventure from the commute to the pier (about 45 minutes from our Old Town villa), finding the pier, the incredible and captivating boat ride to the restaurant, the restaurant itself, its views, staff and food -- all of it was incredible. This wasn't just a meal, it was a one of a kind adventure! Highly recommend.

Great spot for a restaurant. We received great seats as only two groups came on our boat. The staff was great.
The food was mediocre. The fish undercooked for my taste but the sauce was fantastic.
The key lime pie came frozen in the middle and was chewy. They should thaw it before serving!
A bit pricy of an experience for Mexico. I don’t think I would spend that much again for the same experience. But that’s just one man’s opinion.

What a fun dining experience. Between the taxi ride down a windy road, a water taxi ride, meeting the restaurant Great Dane Wilson and being caught in a thunderstorm, we had a great meal and a fantastic time.

Set under a Palapa on a small beach, our dishes were simple yet exquisitely prepared. Service was excellent.

We opted for the 1 pm service, which was a perfect way to spend a day.

Highly recommended!

We were outraged that you charged us $100 pesos per person for boat ride. We were a party of 6. Incould understand $100 pesos per group, but not $600 pesos. We won’t return! Also, all restaurants give you free pico de Gallo. You charged. Ridiculous.

20 minute ride to Boca Tamatlan was beautiful only to find the restaurant Ocean Grill even more amazing.Seated cliffside with boat access gives you an uninterrupted view.
Breathtaking !
The food is so good.
Stellar dishes were the grilled octopus with kalamata olives , mahi mahi with signature sauce,
Shrimp aguachile, actually, anything with that signature sauce is indescribably delicious.
Put this place on your list .

If there is one place you dine while in PV let this be it. From the memorable water taxi (try to take a private on the way there for the best pics) to the spectacular food! Our family of four had a wonderful experience! Ha, we all even loved the view from the bathroom. You have to go to know what I’m talking about. It is amazing in every way!

This was an amazing experience and a fun add on to any PV vacation. We happened to go to the 11am seating during the off season and we had the place nearly to ourselves and Wilsonia (the dog). Highly recommend the pulpo and the aguachilies. Just remember it’s cash only.

Excellent meal and wonderful overall experience. This was me and my husbands third visit to Ocean Grill and I definitely recommend it! My husband ordered the octopus and I ordered catch of the day (mahi-mahi). Both were delicious however I tried a bite of the octopus (usually not a fan of octopus) and was blown away by the flavor and tenderness. I will order it for my main dish the next time we visit.

Pictures on Open Table don’t quite reflect the current state of the restaurant but we were willing to overlook this since the weather here is hard on outdoor structures. The owner was very engaged and checked on us a couple of times. The biggest problem was our waiter. He kept trying to rush us out the door which is the opposite of most restaurants in this area. We had a 3pm reservation and the place was supposed to be open until 5pm. As 4pm rolled around the waiter started hinting that the owner wanted to go. We asked for the bill and paid. The waiter asked if we wanted our 410 pesos in change - of course we wanted our change. A 410 peso tip would have been excessive on a 1,090 peso bill. The waiter returned with two 200 peso notes. Forcing a large tip while trying to shoo us out the door is very rude. I would have liked to leave a better review but the waiter put a bad taste in our mouths.

Manager Antonio was excellent. Our server who has been there for years was also excellent. The food was like I remembered it from years ago, however a couple of the dishes came cool. Alcoholic beverages were overpriced. All that said, I would go back and recommend this restaurant.

Ocean Grill is an amazing location/concept for a restaurant. The food was good and fresh. Not the best food I’ve had in Puerto Vallarta, but definitely good. The view and location are unbeatable. The service however left a lot to be desired. We arrived on the boat with multiple other people, most of which receive their drinks and some their appetizers, before our drink order was even taken. They definitely need more servers. The servers were nice, but obviously overwhelmed. It is a must go just for the experience and view. An important tip: whatever time your reservation is , they mean for you to show up for the boat 15 to 30 minutes prior. They never really say this on their website, but if you contact them, they will let you know. Something they should advertise well.

The Ocean Grill was highly recommended by a friend in Cape May, NJ. Wonderful experience with a beautiful view and outstanding food and drinks. We will definitely return on our next vacation to Puerto Vallarta. We enjoyed the quaint little town you visit to pick up the boat transportation.

A beautiful relaxing location. The fish was done perfectly, unfortunately we had to have the octopus, which we love, returned as it was overcooked and almost cold. The replacement was ok but could have been cooked a little longer. key lime pie was delicious.
