Since 1997, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine has become well-known for offering much more than traditional "Tex-Mex" fare. Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.

We had shrimp tacos, beef fajita. They both are good. Beef was especially tender. Charro bean soup was satisfying good. Our waiter was also attentive. I saw the men at the next table were having tortilla soup, I will definitely order the soup next time when we visit San Antonio again.

Our server was awesome. He was very attentive and ready at a moment’s notice. His name escapes me at the moment but I did know it while there. My brain.... the food was wonderful and the portions were more than adequate. Paloma Blanca is one of our favorite San Antonio restaurants and we will be back.

This was one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to in San Antonio, the services and food was excellent one of the best. I made a reservation online and the staff accommodated my request. One of the perfect nights for my special occasion.

Nice atmosphere, excellent service. Food is not traditional Tex-Mex, but enjoyable. Nice place to relax and have a margarita, too. However, I generally don't go by myself as they tend to seat me in a corner or facing a kitchen door. No problem with groups.

Quick on-time seating (had reservation) with attentive, but not intrusive, service. Great variety on menu and high quality food. Had a well-behaved 4-month-old with us, and seating was perfect for our situation and those around us, designed to minimize outgoing noise from our table and to minimize incoming noise as well. A friendly place with very pleasant and cheerful staff.

Chicken Fajitas are dry and not very good. Too many large parties affect overall service.

Best authentic Mexican food in San Antonio. Very crowded but service was excellent. Fish tacos have just enough kick. We had 7 at our table and everyone enjoyed their meal. A little off beaten path but recommend you go have a margarita and enjoy
