Not only did we have an amazing dinner at La Palapa, we also had breakfast there 3 times! The food is always good and service is great. And the views are amazing! I had a beet salad and chicken breast for dinner -- beautifully presented and very tasty. I highly recommend La Palapa.

It was good dinner. More expensive than we thought.
We saw menu online looks like no updated. Prices are different.

Our second dinner on the beach this season at La Palapa. Each time, the food has been good and the service good. They have honored our requests to be at a table near the water. Salmon was a bit underdone. We shared a chocolate lava cake, which was delicious. Disappointed each time to hear the waiter say, "No decaf coffee. The machine is broken." Many diners are of a certain age and would really appreciate decaf. This should not be a consistent issue, but it was.

We are two married couples in our early 50’s that had a nice romantic Valentine’s Day dinner on the beach at sunset. The food, service and setting were all amazing!

The Perfect Valentine’s Dinner

What a great time we had. Table for four, with perfect view of the sunset.

The food was wonderful (Lobster and Shrimp Taquitos, Salmon, spare Rib surprise appetizer) the wine and other drinks were just the way we liked it, and the dessert was a Flaming Cafe, a great performance at the table. Just right, not too much alcohol, just right to make it the right after dinner drink with the dessert.

The service was excellent (as usual, by the way), what a pleasure.

We have come here for a few years now for special occasions, and were never disappointed. Worth the effort and money. It is best to make a reservation.

The server was good but the food was terrible. Bland no flavor or creativity. Special margarita was the only good part. They somehow screwed up tortilla soup in Mexico. Had absolutely no flavor. Seating isn’t good unless you are over 6 feet tall. Seems like this restaurant is for the older tourist crowd who is too scared to leave their resort.

Great restaurant, lots of service, great view. We've eaten here several times. Limited dinner menu and I thought a glass of house wine was overpriced at 170 pesos, almost $10. But, another lovely meal.

We like this restaurant because they have vegan options , and love sitting on the beach but their service has always been very slow.
