What a lovely restaurant!! We booked our reservation a little before sunset - HIGHLY recommend! The restaurant literally could not be closer to the beach and we watched the sun go down over the water. It was lovely. Food is excellent and great cocktails. The pulpo (octopus) appetizer was a highlight, literally melts in your mouth.
Lives up to all the reviews I saw. Everything about it is superb!
Todo estuvo Excelente !!! Ordenamos el red snapper, pork roulade y beef medallions!
Great location love the ambiance but service was ok
Every time we come to Puerto Vallarta, this is our favorite spot to come for a nice romantic dinner. The food is outstanding and the service has attention to detail and attentive to our needs. Our waiter made fantastic recommendations for dessert and a tequila for my husband to try. We will be back, hopefully sooner than later!
Everyone at our resort recommended this place and it did not disappoint one minute. Service, food, views, everything was divine. Well done!!
We were at this restaurant a month ago and they had the most amazing lobster for a great price! So we took some other friends of ours and they didn’t not have the lobster. Sad day. Amazing beach side restaurant to watch the amazing sunset!!
We celebrated my wife’s birthday at La Palapa and were seated at a great table on the beach at water’s edge. The food was great, as expected for the prices. Carlos, our server, provided excellent if somewhat slow service but made up for by checking in with us often and keeping us entertained. He surprised my wife with a slice of birthday cake decorated with a sparkler as a candle. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return when we’re in PV.
food was delicious. service was excellent. drinks were fantastic
only issue were the maitre de - the ladies did not want to honor our open table reservation and were making excuses that we needed to have reserved a week in advance to get choice seats. we asked fellow patrons around us how far in advance they had reservations and all were within a couple of hours of coming. so not sure what that was about but soured the evening!!
Thank you so much for your review! I'm so happy you enjoyed your dinner and we apologize for the inconvenience with the tables. We look forward to having you back soon. All my best, Sofia
Chill live music and atmosphere, food was solid and so were the drinks. Service, however, was so-so — the hostess and servers were professional but was lacking warm hospitality. Overall, dinner experience was good.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience! I'm so happy you enjoyed your dinner and our live music. We look forward to having you back soon. All my best, Yareli

A long time favorite over the years that never disappoints. Great ambience, good service, ideal people watching and delicious food. Not the most inexpensive option in PV, but well worth it. And if you like salmon, try it!

Love the location, food very good, service slow even by Mexican standards. Waiters hanging around not taking orders. Once was able to order meal came quickly.

Been many times...first time service was extremely slow and wait staff very inattentive. Would have ordered more drinks...but he never came back...wanted dessert but he never came back...finally paid chk and left...food pricy for very average fare.

It was another beautiful evening with the sun setting on the beach. We took off our shoes and had our feet in the sand. The lobster was huge, cooked perfect and buttery. The sound of the waves made for a relaxing evening. The live music was beautiful and fit right in. Service could have been more friendly and accommodating. We all would have liked some ice in our drinks but that got ignored.
No puedo sugerir nada que hacer.
Me arrepiento de haber comido aquí.
We were very much looking forward to go to la Palapa, unfortunately I was disappointed tonight. We are staying in Nuevo Vallarta,which is quite a distance from the restaurant, I was expecting a special evening and it was just ordinary.
The drinks were very good, as was the service. The beet salad is tasty.... The pork entree is a little dry... The lobster was good. Can't beat the location for an incredible sunset
They maintain their high standards no matter what, the food was absolutely fantastic.
We visited Puerto Vallarta for two weeks in April and 10 nights in May 2021. We ate at La Palapa twice. The food is excellent. Taste and presentation is great. Cocktails are very well made and unique. Being on the sand is nice. Service at high end restaurants in Mexico seems to be very effective and attentive but formal. Never saw a smile from our servers at any of the fanciest restaurants including here. This will be one of our regular spots.
The food was exceptional! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Wonderfully relaxing experience.
We had our anniversary dinner at La Palapa. It was lovely and they surprised us with a slice of tres leches cake for dessert that said “happy anniversary.”
Terrific food, beverage & service. Well done!
They were very wonderful in providing a great environment. Great customer service and great food!
Amazing location. Delicious food. Great service!!
Hi Chloe! Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy you enjoyed your dinner. We look forward to having you back soon. All my best, Yareli
Salmon was delicious! Excellent dining experience for my birthday!
Always an exceptional dining experience at La Palapa and that’s why we choose to come here every visit! One word: consistency! You can always count on them to deliver the same level of quality service, food and ambiance each time.
That is rare in today’s world. No qualms about recommending this place to my friends!
Todo excelente como siempre. Always excellent. My favorite 4 mire than 35 years
Friends get together.
Beautiful sunset dining with fantastic service.
Yummy food and drinks.
A must go each time in Vallarta!
One of the best dining experiences ever - the food was spe
Observamos que debido a un evento de 70 personas, el menú al público era reducido en opciones.
We love visiting La Palapa when we are in Puerto Vallarta. We have always enjoyed our food. This visit we had 8 adults and celebrated my birthday. Thanks La Palapa!
Food was cold, fish was over cooked and street vendors bugged us entire time.
We had huge recommendations from friends for La Palapa and we were SORELY disappointed. We all ordered the lobster and it was like cutting a bad steak. Tough. Flavorless. Inedible. And at $95 it was a shame. The shrimp specialty was good and there were a couple of appetizers we really liked, one with a mole was good and the lobster taquitos were delicious ... service was sketchy ... our waiter was cranky .... the view and people watching was wonderful.
