La Paloma is excellent. You will love the very unique menu. So many different and unusual dinner choices. I had the shrimp enchiladas and my friend had the lobster enchiladas. Both were excellent. Expect to pay more than the usual Mexican food and is well worth it. Staff was great! Beer was cold! The only thing I wasn't crazy about where the chips which I can do without. It is worth a try.

We eat here every chance we get. I love their chili rellenos and Mexican paella. The drinks are good, especially their margaritas. The atmosphere is casual and you can call in for pick up.
The patio is so nice in the summer and my fiance and I will be having our wedding there next year!

La Paloma has been in Vista for many years. It is next to a park and has lovely outside dining available which is accessible only through the restaurant. There is a very large selection of dishes. My only suggestion is that they add more seasoning. I found the guacamole quite good but it could use a little more salsa seasoning. The same thing goes for the enchilada sauce. A bit more seasoning would make it that much better. We will definitely return.

Despite only 3 tables in restaurant, had to track down our waiter several times. With the huge menu, we knew there was no way the food could be fresh and well-prepared and sure enough, was only fair. Same went for mis-matched chairs and tables. Keep looking!
