Waiters ready to go home? Restaurnt 75% full. Went elsewhere for after dinner drinks and dessert which clearly wasn’t offered. Such a disappointment to a good beginning and big reputation Bad service bad timing. SAD!!
They lobster tomato soup was wonderful. The coconut shrimp or amazing.. We had the CBS with adobo and the grilled shrimp with garlic. Even after all of that wonderful food one of us had to have is it a Crim Brulé. It was a diva divine. The wine suggested by our waiter was perfect with our entrées. The cocktails that we enjoyed were also delicious. The cocktail with Mezcal and berries was my favorite. And you just cannot say enough about the location the sun sad it was glorious.
really enjoyed the dinner we sat right onthe ocean. it was great. highly recommend the coconut shrimp
Food and service at la palapa are always good. The sea bass special on this visit was especially good and pork pot stickers were delicious as always.
We again enjoyed brunch at La Palapa today. We had four different entrees, and each was beautifully present and delicious.
I loved La Palapa. Everyone was so kind and accommodating! Our servers were personable and lovely. Our food was absolutely delicious! Thank you for such a memorable experience. Eating on the beach at night woth candles and torches and fireworks was amazing. Gracias por todo!
Everything was wonderful!
The waiter was too busy for us. He spent much of his time with a table of 8. He was too busy to spend time explaining dishes and flaming coffees.
Food was lukewarm when brought to the table. We will not return for other meals there.
Every year we go there for breakfast which we think is the best. The other day we went for dinner and there were plenty choices and very high-quality. It is one of our favorite spots. Try it, you will like it.
We return to La Palapa every time we come back to Vallarta. The food and presentation are outstanding. And it’s great to be able to sit at tables on the sand as we watch the sunset.
Awesome place with great food and drinks and amazing views.
Great venue for beach side and on the beach dining. Full Covid precautions taken.
The food, service & setting was fantastic, highly recommend this place. Make sure you request to have a table on the beach for the full experience. Looking forward to coming back here on our next visit to Puerto Vallarta.
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.
Must have a Beach table for sure. Very cool atmosphere.
Excellent restaurant. Beautiful setting. Delicious food. One of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta.
Wonderful ambience, great service, entrees were a bit cold when served, however staff and kitchen rectified situation. Overall great dinner!!
This is our go to place for a romantic dinner. Sunset is the best here!!! Our anniversary dinner was amazing.
Buen servicio, excelente ubicación
