This is one of THE best culinary destinations in PV PLUS it's right on the beach! They often have relaxing guitar music at dinnertime and romantic candlelight on the beach - doesn't get much better than this. That being said, it IS expensive, you do pay for such creative menus and top quality food! A favorite but do make reservations. Located at the end of Pulpito and beach.

We love dining on the beach here. Food is good but service was mediocre this time. We have been 5 times and the service is just OK. For the price the service needs to be taken up a notch. Our waiter kept pouring the wrong wine in glasses and mixing the wines! Put the wrong food in front of people and generally was unattentive... We also sat next to a family who were letting their kids run wild, yelling and wrestling and bumping our chairs. Just because you are on the beach doesn't mean you can let your kids act like wild animals! That was not La Palapa's fault but added to our poor experience....

My partner and I own a home in PV. He loves La Palapa, especially their seafood enchaladas. I admit that they're excellent (and the unusual rice side dish is super). You get the feeling that La Palapa is living a bit off their reputation and their on-the-beach location, which allows them a certain built-in clientele. Still, people come back time and again, and I guess that I will be with them.

La Palapa is a fabulous place to spend the day on the beach. You will literally not have to anything but decide what to eat and drink. The staff is fabulous, the food is great, and it has a great view.
