“Stands up to the Test of Time”
Reviewed November 14, 2009

My wife and I have been dining here for over 15 years and have never been disappointed.
Our favorite is the tuna and ceviche. Along with one of their world class margaritas it makes an enjoyable experience.

“Drinks & Desserts”
Reviewed August 21, 2008

We chose here because closeness to our resort, Seascape Resort and because we were tired.

It was to foggy to see the view or cold to sit outside, so go by other reviews for this.

We were a tough seating arrangement, because of 2 power wheelchairs. Restaurant is not really set up for easy access in dining area, but we got a table at the end of the bar area, that worked for us. Service was a little slow in the bar area, she had too many tables.

We had drinks before the meal, very good. The meal was at best only ok, but i believe that is due to our selections, we were trying something different for our Mid-South palates. But desserts were above average, highly recommend the Flan and the Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream.

“Good Food, Good View”
Reviewed February 8, 2008

We come to Palapas 10 or 12 times a year, from Silicon Valley. We've never been disappointed with a meal or a drink. Service is always friendly, and while we've never waited long for service or food, we've never been rushed either. We come to relax from the rush of our 9 to 5s, and we can easily unwind here. We bring friends to Palapas, and they are always thrilled when they leave. The drinks are strong, always refreshing, and properly made. The food is good . . . really good. . . Rich in flavors, and they have great daily specials. The seafood is fresh, and everything is authentically made, and tasty. I would recommend Palapas for food and drinks, and just a great place to unwind alone, or with friends.
