Always good

Love this place. One of the best arrachera steaks I`ve had in Baja. Three people split the arrachera and Caesar salad and it was plenty. The Caesar is made fresh at your table and was fabulous. 190 pesos each (about $13). For three people with six margaritas we got out of there for $60 including... read more

Nice atmosphere and good service. They cooked the fish we caught that day with 3 choices of preparation. It made a great dinner.

Good food, good service. Nothing super special about this restaurant, but had a nice evening. Strolling mariachi came thru and played good music. Everyone in the restaurant seemed to enjoy.

On the recommendation of a shop owner, we stopped into La Palapa for lunch and will be eternally grateful that we did. We had to wait a bit for our margaritas, so we were a little concerned that the rest of the meal would disappoint, but that was needless. We almost spoiled our appetite on the awesome salsas that started... More

Great food and drinks. We each had the Beef Kabob, very tender and tasty beef. Margaritas were good, too.

We had dinner here one night. Very, very good food. Authentic mexican dishes. Everyone suggested to go to Orlando's for great food. Well, we did go there one night for dinner. What a mistake. Go to La Palapa for a delicious mexican dinner!

We went to La Palapa in Loreto, Baja California, Mexico after trying two other places recommended to us--one on TripAdvisor and one by a hotel. It was by far the best of the three! I had ceviche for an appetizer,wonderfully fresh grilled shrimp in garlic sauce that was simple but well-cooked, flan for dessert. Everything was quite good--not fancy but... More

We tried this as was away from the square where the restaurants had inflated prices. Looked good and was clean and well laid out. The food here was good, but much more expensive than the smaller local eateries. Beer 37 pesos when other places 25 pesos. The staff seemed underworked and were standing about. Guess thats why prices higher.

Great atmosphere and food. Large portions and loved the selection of salsas that came with the chips. We had a variety of seafood and meat dishes, and a wonderful tortilla soup. Everything was delicious!
