Paradise awaits at the Ocean Grill Puerto Vallarta!
Oh my!!!! The best way to describe the Ocean Grill is paradise on a stick. It is just perfect! No question about it this is paradise!
Ocean Grill Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
We took a water taxi from Puerto Vallarta about 30-45 minutes to the Ocean Grill. The scenery along the way is magnificent.
You pull up to the Ocean Grill and do a quick odd hop into their boat and then up to the dock to get to the restaurant.
Oh and I should mention the only way to access the Ocean Grill is by boat so be prepared! It is so worth the boat ride
When you pull up to the Ocean Grill you are greeted by a gorgeous white sand beach and a view of the restaurant overlooking the water.
It is a quick and easy walk from the dock up to the restaurant. Be prepared there are stairs that you have to climb up to get onto the dock. You can also access the restaurant from the beach.
Can we just take a moment to soak in this view....................................................................
Don't worry take as long as you need.........................
Just in case you needed another moment here you go..................................
Are you feeling a bit relaxed?
Are you feeling hungry after relaxing for a few moments.....why don't we chat about the amazing food at the ocean grill for a second. Don't worry there will be more relaxing pictures before we are done 🙂
Hello grilled octopus!
I am going to admit here and now that I did not eat this dish but one of the great guys traveling on our trip let me take a picture of it to share with everyone.
He said it was absolutely amazing.
I enjoyed one of the best veggie burgers I have ever had and a piece of the delicious key lime pie.
Doesn't this look heavenly! I mean seriously the combination of the view and a decadent piece of key lime pie = heaven on earth!
Remember that beach I mentioned earlier in the post....the one you can access from the restaurant....yeah it looks rough, doesn't it 🙂
This private Los Colomitos Beach is easily accessible from the restaurant and oh so gorgeous.
If you don't want to get sandy you can also visit the private floating island right off of the restaurant.

Closed at this beautiful location and permanently as of December 2017, unfortunately.
Oh my goodness! I hadn't heard they closed. That makes me so sad
We are staying in Puerto Nuevo, Grand Luxx, How can we contact someone for reservations, are there tours? We will be there arround the 14 th of Nov 2017 We would very much like to go. 2 years ago no one had any information on the Ocean Grill, we don't want to take that chance again.
Where did you catch the water taxi from PV to Boca De Tomatlan?
Hi Erica, Here is some info I found online
There are two places in the Puerto Vallarta area to catch the water taxi, Los Muertos Pier in Puerto Vallarta and a bit farther south in Boca de Tomatlan.
We left from the pier.
Puerto Vallarta is definitely on my bucket list. Looks amazing!
Wow what a gorgeous place! Looks like a wonderful meal too. I would love to visit a place like this.

I would not want to leave there, the views are stunning. What a wonderful place to eat!
Wow, this place is stunningly beautiful! I love the way you dine, and the octopus is super cool looking!
just thought I'd mention you can also hike there from Boca de Tomatlan. It's about 45 minutes, with some steep bits so not for everyone. Also, the bathroom is the most awesome restaurant bathroom I've ever seen!
Doug, Thank you for posting! I wasn't aware that you can hike down to the restaurant. I agree the bathroom was amazing!
Wow weekday am amazing restaurant! The key lime pure looks amazing.
What an amazing place to eat! Oh that dessert looks so yummy!
What an awesome restaurant! I would eat all three meals there just to spend the day!
Wow, it looks like a little slice of heaven, and the food doesn't look bad either! It's great to have resources like your recommendations for the next time I head out on a cruise!
This looks absolutely wonderful. I would give anything to be abler to relax near and on that water!
That view alone is worth the trip to the restaurant! The food looks awesome too.
Oh my that looks beautiful. I think I would have to forgo the octopus but everything else looks amazing. I love your photos!
I think that is the most unique restaurant I have ever seen! I love the idea of getting there on a boat. And it is definitely a place I'd love to relax!
The view!!! Amazing! And the octopus, I'm sure was spectacular (I've had it ONCE- and done right is great!). What a great experience!
What an amazing restaurant location. The food looks great, and the beach area is beautiful. I would love to visit there some day.
Ok, I'm sold. If I ever make it to Puerto Vallarta, I am totally stopping to eat there!
We'd love to visit PV for the first time this next year, I'll keep this place in mind - what a cool way to get there and the view is amazing!!
oh my goodness, this place looks like heaven. i'd never leave!
Ocean Grill looks amazing. It's so cool that they built it out over the water.
This is so beautiful. I'd love to have a nice dinner there. Heck, I'd love to just bunk there for awhile.
Ocean Grill looks amazing! I love the scenery and atmosphere. I'd even try the octopus.
