The day was perfect for a beach wedding that was coordinated with the friendly and outgoing staff here. The food was delicious!

“Not what we expected”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The location is prime. The decorative "idea" is spot on, but they totally "miss" with the food. The interior could use a little "sprucing up", and the kitchen may need a visit from Hell's kitchen Chef Ramsay because it is on a decline. Menu items sound good, but don't deliver.

“Nice view and Jazz”
Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Visiting from Texas with friends who are from the L.A. area. This place was awesome and the food - fajitas - were great and filling. Drinks- chuppacabra - was good. Nice band near our table with good jazz artists-Steve Oliver. Overall this place was fun filled with nice ambience and beach breeze atmosphere.

“Sippin' and Snackin'”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Some locations are good and others great; all the while, some locations must be considered a "staple" of their city. La Palapa is just that, a staple. The Pacific Ocean in clear view by day, live music and intimate atmosphere by night, this spot has it all. If you enjoy a good cocktail, this is a must try.
Every time I visit La Palapa I go for a Manhattan with Maker's Mark, up. My girlfriend is usually torn between a glass of Riesling or a bloody mary. More often than not, we dive into a sea of appetizers and leave it at that. Their spinach dip is creamy without losing a hearty texture. Sliders are some of the best I've ever had. When in the mood for a sanwich, the chicken pesto and classic rueben are delicious.
Having atmosphere, quality food, excellent service, and perfect drinks, La Palapa is a must try for anyone passing through or local to Long Beach.

“An afternoon vacation in Long Beach”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We love this place because it's literally right on the beach. The giant palapa makes you feel like you're on a mini vacation for the afternoon. We can always count on great live music, excellent food and a great view for sunset. It's great for dates or meeting up with friends or a celebration. I recommend this place to everyone.
