After many years of great Mexican food in the heart of Vista, La Paloma has closed with no indication of ever to open again. We enjoyed the restaurant for many years and will miss it.

A great pity. We had always liked this restaurant with its upscale Mexican menu and we are sorry to see that it has closed doors. The space will be taken over by another restaurant, cuisine unknown, name not given

Had a girls lunch here, I had forgotten how good the huge tostada sale was! The patio was delightful on a warm summers day and the margaritas sure we're tasty. This is a nice, reasonable and good food place to meet friends for lunch or...More

We have been here a couple of times and never enjoyed the food or the service. So disappointing as the ambiance is beautiful. Just not our style. But they tend to be busy so I'm sure it's just us. Check it out and submit your...More
