Great menu. The grilled fish in garlic and butter was literally melt in.your mouth delicious! Best whitefish ever! Quiet tables surrounded by trees, accommodating waiters who helped us modify dishes to get just what we wanted for our somewhat picky tastes. Good margaritas and guacamole!...More

Loved this restaurant and was impressed by their warm hospitality. I highly recommend the the coconut milk coffee -- frozen coconut milk, shot of espresso, honey. I don't recall the actual name of it...but it was life changing.

Wonderful Palapa Restaurant since 1982 with a pebble floor, mayan sculptures, waterfalls, hammocks, exotic birds, a peaceful garden with a fantastic jungle setting. Excellent Seafood, Authentic Mexican and Yucatecan Cuisine. World Famous "Lalo's Special", a dish made with fresh shrimp, lobster, calmer, fish and chicken fajitas is Superb. The ceviche made of fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, octopuss and lemon is also exceptional. The most relaxing place to laze in a hammock after a delicious feast.
