Eat here every time I visit. This time I had coconut shrimp for an appetizer (insanely huge and amazing), cream cheese stuffed bread, and seafood risotto in squid ink for entree. All amazing food and while sitting at a table on the sand with champagne.

Great food and service. Had a salad for lunch and it was very good. The Chilean wine was excellent. Cortez and Memo did a wonderful job of serving us.

Ate here with friends at sunset and had an amazing time. The food was extremely fresh! We tried a crawfish appetizer that was truly amazing. The portion was very large. I had shrimp for dinner, which I loved, and every drink we tried was very tasty. The atmosphere is great as well. I'll definitely be back.

I've had a few meals in PV over the years but this time, the personal attention of 3 waiters at one time tops it all. Robert, Abel, and Edwin took care of our every request and the shrimp tacos and fajitas speaks for themselves. You cannot go wrong at La Palapa.

Just wanted to have breakfast with my wife on the beach. Friends had recommended this place. Had my feet in the sand, cool breeze in my face and wife by my side. Good coffee and juice to start. I ordered plate of fruit and my wife had what looked like a egg Benedict dish! Both were excellent!

You have to experience La Palapa dining on the beach!!! Fantastic scenery and perfect atmosphere! Can't wait to go back. I had the veggie panini and it was so incredible. Unusual for Mexican dining but I absolutely recommend it!!! So so good! 5 star!
