The hostess ignored us upon arrival. Had to flag someone down for service. The food was good but overpriced for small portions. I live in PV and will never take a guest there again.
Casual but sophisticated. A cool vibe with a buzz and fantastic location right on the beach with gorgeous views of the sunset. The ambiance, service and menu were perfect as was the choice of musicians. So glad we made the trip from Nuevo. It was an experience we will remember for a long time. Thank you La Palapa.
The waiters seemed very confused, they brought our main courses before we had finished our appetizer course. Half way through our appetizers they moved our table because of a large group beside us, bad planning as the table was laid before we got there. They gave us a free round of drinks but as I don’t drink alcohol I said how about dessert but they didn’t go for that.
The food was excellent but I think there were new waiters who need training.
It is expensive so they need to improve on the service. We have eaten here before and it had always been great, this time service was disappointing
It was a beautiful evening overlooking the beach in the sunset. Excellent service. Very special!
Great location. Not impressed by the food. Despite all the reviews. Very under impressed
We always celebrate our anniversary there every year! It’s our favorite restaurant. We love the unique menu selection and great service. And of course, the chocolate lava cake!
Always excellent service and we love dining on the beach and watching the sunset, indoor dining is also available. Food is always good, and has something for everyone. We have been here numerous times and will be back, definitely recommend this restaurant.
We were disappointed this time after having eaten at La Palapa many times over the years. The wine pours were small and very ordinary but expensive for what was supposedly the house Chardonnay. The beet salad was delicious; the peach salad had little flavor. The main course, the shrimp, looked skimpy. Service was pretty good but we have had better in PV. As always, lovely ambience but just over-priced and not particularly noteworthy in terms of food. Sorry.
Beautiful evening, delicious meal, exceptional service, spectacular view.
Perfect. Lots of fun. Great service. Delicious food
We had a wonderful dinner and the service was great.
Amazing. Fantastic experience dining right on the beach. Really delicious food and an awesome Mexican Coffee.
Overall very good.
Wonderful meal with great friends at an amazing beach side restaurant.
El cerdo relleno , la combinación de queso de cabra , nuez , camote y tamarindo es deliciosa .
Best dinner on the sand in Puerto Vallarta.
It was amazing! Great staff and food! Awesome top service!
Stuck us in an “extra” table halfway into the ocean and then pretty much forgot about us the rest of the night. Disappointing experience. We had been several times before and brought our friends after telling them how good it was. We won’t be back.
They didn’t have a table for us and made us wait half an hour and then tried to seat us in the dark in the ocean
Lovely meal, attentive service and amazing ambience. An overall wonderful meal.
Amazing! Great way to end our trip at La Palapa, we ordered the Mexican coffee and they really put on a show! Not to mention getting a table right at sun set, unreal. Only complaint (and there weren’t many) was my fiancé’s octopus tasted burnt, no other flavor but burnt. I don’t wanna talk negative about La Palapa because we will definitely be back!!! My food and drink (it was the special that had ancho in it) was amazing.
I was very much looking forward to this dinner, our last night in PV but was very disappointed. The most notable thing about this dinner was the wine but at $75 a bottle it should be good! The starter salad was nice but nothing I haven’t had before. I had the chicken breast that was way too sweet and the potato it was served with was just Meh! My husband did enjoy the pork. He actually said it was very good. The setting is amazing and the singers added to the ambience of the night. It was definitely not as good as it was two years ago
Unique cocktails/Margaritas, excellent service and excellent meal. Our group of 4 had 2 appetizers and 4 separate entrees, all excellent.
What a great evening with friends. The atmosphere couldn’t have been better and the food was amazing!!!!
We are on vacation !Had a wonderful dinner on a beautiful table on the sandy beach . Can ‘t say enough about the beautiful plate presentation and quality if the food . Make sure you partake in the roll basket . Di delicious And superior service !
Excellent! Cant wait to come back. This was our first time in Puerto Vallarta and had a wonderful time!
Wonderful setting, excellent food, very attentive service. Good value and a place to consider when you’re visiting Puerto Vallarta.
We enjoyed the ambiance and the service but portions are small, fish on a plate with a
little sauce, period, no garnish, veg. etc. Very poor value. Beet salad was delicious
and nice size. Will not return.
The service was great until the end. They got a big party in and our waiter seemed to disappear. Took a long time to get our bill and then pay.
Great evening! Go early for this one...6:30...sit on the sand and watch the sunset with your cocktails! No dissapointment with the food...something for everyone!
It was lovely
Siempre visito La Palapa cuando estoy en Puerto Vallarta para celebrar alguna ocasión especial, cumpleaños, aniversarios, etc. Este año celebré el cumpleaños de mi novio y, como siempre, el servicio, la comida y el ambiente fueron de lo mejor. Este es uno de los lugares más románticos de Puerto Vallarta y lo recomiendo ampliamente para esa ocasión especial.
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.
Third time dining here and didn’t disappoint. Menu is fabulous, service is superb and the view is unbeatable. A “must” in Puerto Vallarta
Alex was amazingly attentive and food was great. Lobster Taquitos were the best!
Absolutely wonderful at sunset. Great food and service 👌
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.
