The restaurant location and setting is great. This was our second time in 6 month. I remembered this restaurant as a real find the first time so I couldn't wait to go back. Well very disappointing second go around. For one our waiter could have cared less, and I don't need much attention but geez I'd like a little. Margarita... More

It is hard to beat La Palapa if you are bringing in your own "catch of the day". They offer 3 choices of preparation -- garlic and butter, breaded, and Vera Cruz. We have never tried the breaded since the garlic and butter and Vera Cruz style our so wonderful. The presentation is amazing. Any fine restaurant in New York... More

We like to eat here on every trip. Located close to the town square, the restaurant is open air under a large palapa covered patio. The chicken tortilla soup and chicken mole are the dishes we enjoyed this year!

I confess to having a weakness for the large open-sided palapas such as we found in this restaurant. I also love cooking on the "brasas" and being able to watch the cooks do their thing. We happened on this gem as we were walking around the town and the aromas pulled us in. Decor is rustic, the wait staff were... More

Large open palapa. Friendly staff. GREAT food. They have a large open grill, where you can watch the chef. Colorful table settings. The only negative for me was the lack of air-conditioning. (It was very hot and humid when we were there).

We took our dorado there and the chef cooked it in three different ways. YUM! Great food! Street musicians will serenade you for a few dollars.
