Appetizers were the spinach salad (highly recommend!) and pork hum bao. Dinner was pork tenderloin and red snapper. All beautifully and deliciously prepared. Staff made great drink suggestions and were prompt and helpful. Given it was a holiday I think the restaurant did really well...More

A great place to eat for watching the sunset while having some tasty drinks and dinner. You can sit either at tables on the sand or on the hardwood of the restaurant. Meals are tasty and service is efficient and pleasant.

We only stopped at La Palapa for Mexican coffee. It is a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere, right on the beach. The coffee is a show all of its own. Great presentation - and it's aflame - so go after dark for the most dramatic.

A Christmas champagne toast that was pricier than in the USA. A"special" shrimp appetizer which was advertised as having a splash of white wine, garlic and tarragon- it was more like a tomato fish broth, with soft, soggy, unappealing shrimp. I should have asked the...More

This is a high end restaurant. We arrived early (dinner starts at 530) and had drinks in the lounge. I don't believe they have earlybird specials, but i suspect the lunch menu is less pricey.
