“Amazing restaurant”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

I visited la palapa with my wife a couple of nights ago. We ordered enchiladas de jaiba , shrimp al ajillo, and pork filled with goat cheese. Everything was delicious. The drinka were also very good, we had piña colada and mojitos. We got there around 8pm. And the sun was almost down so the sky and the ocean looked beautiful. The restaurant is right by the beach very romantic

“Great service”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

My sister and I recently dined at La Palapa right on the beach. It was incredibly serene. The food was very good but the service outshone any other restaurant in town. we were served by Jorge ( or pelon as his coworkers called him.) He was very friendly and accommodating. I learned more local knowledge from him in 2 hours than I had garnered in 10 years of visits. A few days later we had breakfast and again was impressed. This has become a must go to restaurant for us from here on in.

“Great beach breakfast”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Went to La Palpa again for breakfast - have never been disappointed, food is excellent. They even served us breakfast even though it was past noon and they had started their lunch menu - very accommodating. Nice location - right on the beach. Will be back for another fantastic breakfast.
