This beachfront restaurant was the first one to be built along Playa de los Muertos, long before the Cuale River could be easily crossed. This restaurant is an international favorite and the big palapa (thatched) roof is a landmark. Jumbo shrimp in a tequila sauce is a favorite, as is the red snapper in a sauce flavored with pibil chiles. Live music competes with the sound of the nearby waves crashing on the beach. The dress code is resort-casual; change out of the bathing suits and flip-flops before dining.
My wife and I happened on this wonderful romantic restaurant while walking along the beach. We decided to stop and have a drink while we watched the beautiful sunset. The entire staff from start to finish was very helpful and polite. I told them I was going to ask my wife to marry me that night as we sat in this perfect setting. Everything that night went perfect including the trio ensemble that was performing that night. We can't wait to go back. Gracias
Very Romantic. Wonderful view - literally on the beach. Service not the best. My husband and I waited 20 minutes just to receive a menu and another 20 for water (which came warm without ice). We ending up just having a appetizer and went elsewhere for dinner. Considering we had been there for TWO hours already.
Would diffently recommend it for the view if you don't mind not too good service. The appetizer we had (coconut shrimp) was very good!
This is not the restuarant if your looking for good service; however, if service doesn't matter the view alone is worth going for - very beautiful and romantic place.
The only meal I have eaten here has been breakfast and I wholeheartedly enjoyed mine-zucchini blossom and huitlacoche omelet, something that's very hard to find in the states.
Much of the food, other than my omlet, was rather Americanized unfortunatly. Not much else to chose from for the adventurous eater. The service was quite good, and it was great fun to sit under a palapa in the sand to eat breakfast.
Bottom line: pricy but the Bloody Marys are very good.
This restaurant was recommended by the DMC were were working with while in Puerto Vallarta the first week in February, 2007. The appetizers were quite good, but the meal was horrible. There were four of us and we all felt short-changed on our meal. Two of us including me had the scallops. What we got were just three medium sized scallops that were tasteless. My wife had the shrimp which was not cooked very well and she refused to eat it. They did not offer to send it back or replace it with something else. The other member of our party chose steak, which is always a mistake when in Mexico.
La Palapa Restaurant is by far known as the best in town. If you are looking for a phenomenal fine dining experience during your next visit, this is the place. Aside from unmatched ambiance, they also have a unique live band every night- say hello to Memo, Raul and Bob who will not forget your name, no matter how long it is before you return. If you come on Monday or Tuesday night, the owner, Mr. Perez, may be leading the group himself, including a number of songs from his most recent album. If you are looking for a truly romantic experience, they have a "romantic table" that can be reserved ahead of time where a beautiful white table is set out in the spotlight, just farther out on the beach than the other tables and lined with tiki torches and candles. Many a proposal have taken place here and twice as many perfect anniversaries from those who return. The neighboring restaurant, The Lazy Lizard Restaurant and Beach Bar, is known as a pre-emptive experience to La Palapa, with their phenomenal breakfast and bargain margaritas and beer. Lounge by day, and fine dine by night without walking more than a few steps!
