“Good lunch, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Palapas is a consistently good restaurant with quality, well-prepared food, nice atmosphere, and friendly service. I met a friend there for lunch, and we will go back there for lunch this month.

“Authentic Mexican all the way !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We had dinner at this place just a week back. The unlimited starters, nachos and sauce, were great. The avocado dip was yummy. We ordered spinach/cheese enchiladas - with extra cheese toppings and tortillas; the portions that arrived were huge. A very 'full-feelng' meal and we had no space left even for coffee. Warm and prompt service, terrific food.

“Special Take on Mexican Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Really fresh preparations, unique take on Mexican faire, though can be a little expensive (think resort prices).

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Have visited this location 30 times. The best Margueritas I have had outside of MX. Order the cadillac "on the rocks" not blended. They have a sampler plate appetizer that includes shrimp and steak that is very memorable. There are many unique "Pescado" dishes that should not be missed. They have all the traditional "Gringo" choices but be adventurous and try something besides nachos and burritos........

“We Had a Great Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We had a great lunch at Palapas. I had salad with shrimp on top, dressing on the side. My husband had a chili verde burrito. Both were good. The view was lovely, and the service was excellent.
