Everything was fabulous. We particularly enjoyed the crashing waves.
Always a lovely experience sitting in the sand and looking at the ocean. The waiters are excellent and breakfast is economical. Food is fine with lots of options. Fruit plate was very impressive.
Excellent food, drinks and service as usual. Nothing better than sitting with our feet in the sand having a great meal by the ocean.
Good food , nice ambience, good service. Reasonable price.
This restaurant was everything plus more than I expected it would be. We dined outside with the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. All of our food was very tasty however the portions were quite small. Will I go he again? Yes absolutely.
In PV and we always go there for great food.
Beautiful setting great food it was delicious
A beautiful sunset and great dinner - the combo couldn’t be any better!
Stunningly beautiful setting on the beach. Food is very good. Staff very pleasant and friendly. Great ambience.
A lovely evening as usual at La Palapa, but, like many restaurants they seem to be a bit stretched for service staff and the fresh catch of the day had to be sent back for another entree—just not fresh and overcooked. In Covid times, we understand how things like this can happen. And they were gracious and didn’t charge for the entree. We will be back!
Vacation. More pricey than most restaurants in PV but you can’t duplicate the setting and ambiance. Toes in the sand, ocean waves, lantern, mountains! Delicious drinks! Delicious bread basket! Incredible tortilla soup and pear salad. For mains- shrimp palapa- delectable and filet! Homemade churros for dessert! Excellent service too and entertainment! Very special! Our third time there- better than I remembered!
Beautiful atmosphere. Sadly, very poor service this evening. Have eaten here several times, tonight the service drastically missed the mark. Completely inattentive and not busy at all. Disappointing to say the least
Amongst the best in PV- continually.
I go every time I visit!
Awesome location, table on the beach in full shade, food was impeccable!
Sunday brunch on the beach in Puerto Vallarta. Delicious food, great service and a view of the ocean. What’s not to love?
La Palapa never disappoints!
The setting was nice enough, although we were not seated on the beach. The cucumber margaritas were o.k., nothing special. We were a group of four, ordered three appetizers and four main courses. The salmon was very good, the shrimp dish was ok but had only five shrimp sandwiched between very thick mashed potatoes. The fish of the day was good, but again, nothing special.
My criticism is the lack of value for the price we paid: $60 each. All dishes to me should have been outstanding for that price. Considering all of the other options, this was too expensive for a meal in PV.
Perfection always - the Taquito and The Pork Roulade were the finest dishes we’ve had in Puerto Vallarta.
Wonderful ambience, great service, entrees were a bit cold when served, however staff and kitchen rectified situation. Overall great dinner!!
Excellent restaurant. Beautiful setting. Delicious food. One of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta.
This is our go to place for a romantic dinner. Sunset is the best here!!! Our anniversary dinner was amazing.
Buen servicio, excelente ubicación
We love this restaurant
Great place. Super romantic. Delicious food too
Excellent service and delicious food! Wonderful beach dining.
Buen ambiente, comida buena, atención un poco descuidada.
Food delicious, service excellent, ambiance incredible and music was just right. Even played The late Ricky Nelson’s only hit!!!
Great atmosphere. Got a little tired of street salesmen but out table was by the sidewalk.
My only complaint and that of my fellow diners was that the food was not served hot enough otherwise a wonderful experience
Absolutely amazing from start to finish.
A nice evening was made nicer by Alejandro’s service. The food could have been a little warmer but all in all it was good.
Must try restaurant- food is delicious
We love to enjoy breakfast with our feet in the sand before we head home to the cold Wisconsin winter. The service is exceptional. The food is wonderful. Our favorite place in PV.
Amazing as always!
Wonderful meal - as always. Great friendly staff and excellent food presentation.
Well we had a little rain on the beach but the staff make it work. Overall very friendly, great food and atmosphere. Strong drinks which we were good with. Thank you for a great time
The location on the water is beautiful. However the service was far from it. You hardly saw the waiter and my wife has a good allergy in which we needed to have interaction. She asked whether the bread had egg and they never came back.
This restaurant came highly recommended but we would never return.
Service was less than stellar. They usually pour the tortilla soup over the crisp corn noodles at the table, but this time it came to the table with soup over noodles. Consequently it was soggy. Not good. Red snapper was excellent as always. Overall not up to the level I have experienced in the past.
We loved La Palapa. Great apps and I loved the Mezcal cocktail.
It is always nice to visit La Palapa, I visit it often. They were very full, but the service was great ! Thanks !!!
We’ve been to La Palapa many times. I was a little disappointed this visit mainly because of what I ordered. It was a mistake. I ordered the combination fajitas. I should have ordered the quesadilla. I know I like cheese and there is none with the fajitas. Next time I’ll know better. Now, I did order the pear salad and that was delicious. My husband had the whole, grilled red snapper and he said it was delicious and that he would order it again. Looking forward to my next visit.
