The Vallarta grill has authentic Mexican cuisine and we were all VERY impressed with the food, and the service! The view is amazing, and the atmosphere makes for a wonderful meal. We will definitely be back :)

The menu is very small, not much choice. The food is not very good, plain, not much flavor. Service is fast and the beer was cold, but, no other good points about this place.

This restaurant seven the best Mexican cuisine in town. When my sister and I want this type of food, we are always satisfied at the Vallarta Grill. Prices are reasonable and during the summer months, the patio is great for outdoor eating.

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!
