Few expectation, very good brunch

We visited this place last sunday to have a brunch... 1st impression was an old restaurant with no attractives, but as we were already there we decided to stay... And we cant complain about the decision... Buffet was amazing, service very good and price was fair... I recommend it

The courtyard is very quaint. Food and service excellent. The restaurant's interior is in need of cosmetic repairs ; other than that, I love it.

A Gables staple for many generations La Palma continues to exude its Old World Charm and ambience after all these years. From its classic Spanish Revival architecture to the conservative elegance of its décor the experience is one of warmth, style and class. Oh yes...! And the food is pretty good too. Excellent in fact ,with a varied menu which... More

A good way to spend a Friday evening if you are staying at a hotel near the Miami airport. Not an easy restaurant to find, but it was worth it, once we arrived. Hot fresh rolls, delicious Veal dish, Great homemade pasta with seafood. Wonderful lemon meringue pie. Really good food. Speedy service. The parking situation is not ideal. It... More

Also AC not working inside so we were all very uncomfortable and sweaty after asking numerous times and being told by the servers they were aware it was broken , I asked for the Manager again another server tells me that they know the...

We visited Coral Gables recently, and decided to sit outside at La Palma. Good choice. We enjoyed the italian food, the service and especially the romantic setting with lights on the trees. One thing of note, the Key Lime Pie was fabulous. It was made in house by the owner. He uses actual key limes for that extra tartness we... More

What a shock. After coming here many times for late night drinks and the singer, the food was overcooked, undercooked , the wrong meal served, and it took over an hour after the appetizers to get our food. So much anticipation reservations a month ahead. Then. the waiter and manager argued with us that they are right. 0 stars

La Palma will make for a memorable experience. Superb value, and great "chemistry" ... THE SETTING Beautiful historic building, and "Old Spanish" architecture. Rather small setting, with indoor seating, and a very nice courtyard that is available for dining, too. We dined outside, and it could not have been nicer. THE MENU A fairly standard menu is available, but we... More

I have been to this restaurant so many times, it feels like "family" to me when I return. I now live in Vero Beach, so I don't dine in the La Palma very often. My guest, this last visit, remarked that she eats so often at the lunch buffet, she does not really think of dining at La Palma for... More
