We have been going here for years though this is my first time to write a review. The staff at this restaurant are friendly and helpful. The food is consistently good and happy hour is great.

I have a 3 and 5 year old and we love coming here. The environment is very kid friendly, the margaritas are great and the food is excellent. They are very accommodating.

Hate to promote an already busy restaurant but a true surf gem. Chicken fajita tostada my usual order. More manageable than their burritos which are yummy too but crazy big! Love love love the interior decor. Service warm & welcoming; good for kids too but see lots imbibing in margos!

Once you are sitting down at a table, you are served nacho chips with homemade salsa. The salsa is excellent. There was two of us and we each had our own container of salsa. We ordered classic margarita's. Blended. Very good! For dinner I ordered the steak tacos. It came with rice and guacamole and salsa. Very good! My husband... More

Cozy little spot. Nice atmosphere. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Food was very good, fresh and unlike a lot of Mexican restaurants was hot when delivered. One out of the 4 plates came a little late. Overall good experience. Would go back again.

Went there with a few friends for dinner. Looking forward to a chicken tamale. Disappointed that it was cold over 1/2 of the tamale and then like warm at best. My dining companions meals weren't much better. The place was sticky, dirty and the wait staff was grateful to see the patrons leave. In the words of the exCA governor... More

Been to Riviera several times as a guest of my cousin. They have a small, but nice, outdoor seating area and a very busy and very noisy interior decorated in a rather eclectic style. The food is fine, but not exceptional. For the price, one can do better in SoCal. The shredded beef enchilada was better than the cheese, refried... More

Met some wonderful locals who dine here weekly. The food was excellent. Best kind of place to find. Alcohol is served, staff is friendly and food is definitely very good, authentic mexican fare. Ambiance is casual but festive. I would definitely eat here again.
