Description: The "hidden jewel" of Westlake and West Austin's only authentic Interior Mexican restaurant and bar. Las Palomas' menu spans multiple regions of Mexico, as well as the cultures which influenced Mexico's cuisine, including Spanish, French, South American and Aztec tastes. Our signature Mole, Chile Relleno, Steak Chimichurri and Paella recipes reflect the delicious blend of multiple cultures, honed to perfection by Amelia Corona, our founder. Join us for a culinary trip across Mexico, enhanced by an accompanying glass of wine or fresh lime margarita.

“Upscale Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Service is good and the food very good. We love the Tres Marias - three enchiladas (chicken) with different sauces, one being mole'. The mole' is also under the refried beans...tasty. The white rice looks ordinary but it has an excellent flavor.

“Great neighborhood restaurant”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We have been going to Las Palomas for almost 30 years and the quality has only improved with time. Love the fish dishes--can order different sauces and styles to fit one's mood. Great place to see friends and neighbors--the regulars are an important endorsement.

“Good Quality”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This restaurant is located in a shopping arcade tucked away in a corner. it was very busy on the Friday night we were there, but we had booked a table, although only a few hours previously. Although most of the tables inside and outside were occupied it did not seem crowded, with plenty of space between the tables. There was a nice buzz of conversation, so a good atmostphere was created.

One of our party does not like very spicy food, and the waitress was very good in giving advice on what to choose, even arranging for one sauce to be put on the side as opposed to being on the meal itself. The menu was reasonably extensive so you should not be stuck for choice, and the food was very tasty. Service was everything you would hope for.

So if in the area, search it out. Do not let its location put you off.

“Not quite the same as Taco Bell”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The title I gave it might be a bit severe, as Las Palomas is pretty good all around, and obviously superior to the plethora of fast food joints we have here. Not quite the same in this case means a whole lot better, for those who don't appreciate my droll attempt at humor. The have a half dozen ways to serve broiled fish or shrimp, differentiating them with a variety of sauces. The seafood veracruz had good flavor and was cooked very well. The beef fajitas were just OK, and had an odd flavor which I didn't care for very much, but my wife found it acceptable. Service was very good, ambiance on a Tuesday late afternoon was excellent since there were no other customers there to drive the noise levels sky high, and the prices were in line with the quality of the food. It is not quite ready for prime time, but it is not average to mediocre either. I liked it.
