Beautiful restaurant on the beach!

This place is one giant palapa, open to the beach ( with seating in the sand as well ) but quite upscale in its decor and the best place for a romantic sunset dinner!!

Food is great and service professional.

For a romantic meal right on the beach, La Palapa can't be beat. Candlelights, torches, and nicely spaced tables right on the sand. But the best feature is the food; unlike many restaurants with great settings, which tend to deliver so-so food, La Palapa has interesting dishes that are well-prepared. Definitely a favorite (5-10 visits so far)

Thank retr2

My husband and I own a second home in PV and always enjoy our dining experience at La Palapa. When our family visits we all look forward to our "first evening" out, which is dinner under the stars, on the beach at La Palapa. When it is just the 2 of us we always try to have a few Sunday breakfasts there, which is what we did on our last day of our trip in April. We mentioned to Carlos, our very attentive waiter, that we were sad since we were flying home later on that day. At the end of our breakfast Carlos surprised us with a wonderfully decorated desert plate with the message written in chocolate:" wishing you a wonderful trip". What a lovely, thoughtful touch. It is unexpected gestures like this which will have us return to La Palapa over and over.

We had the ceviche trio and the seafood enchilada here on our last visit and they were excellent. We ordered the enchilada without cheese, butter, cream, and with a red sauce, and they made a fantastic meal for us. Service was also great. Chairs were comfortable. Views fantastic.

La Palapa is among my favorite places in PV. The food is wonderful, and the wait staff is always understanding and accommodating. When we are economizing we tend to eat at La Palapa for lunch. When we splurge, it's dinner. I have never had a disappointing meal here. One of the best deals in PV is to go for before lunch in the morning, and hang around all day, simply eating lunch and drinking beer under their beach umbrellas. La Palapa is a great location, and it is paradise to spend the day there.
