Service was bad my entre was not what I ordered and I did not enjoy it, the waiter never came to check on us, when he did I told him he said “ maybe you will like it next time”.

Right on the beach with attentive service. A bit pricey, however.

Basically, the meal was bad all the way around. The service was very poor (had to tell them multiple times for the same thing), each person''s meal came out at a separate time, the food was mediocre quality, one person's meal was cold. By far, it was the worse (and truly only bad) meal that we had during our week in Puerto Vallarta. Our friend, who lives there, said it's overpriced and poor quality; guess he was right. The best thing they have going in location - nice views. Last time we eat there.

Fish came out raw; we sent it back and they just just cooked what they had originally brought out. For a 200.00 dinner, it was tacky.

Food was excellent (must get the octopus). Service over all was great minus a wrong drink order to start. If you choose a beach table be prepared to be bothered by vendors walking the sidewalk trying to sell you jewelry or drugs. Drinks and food were all on point. Worth the trip

La Palapa is our go-to favorite for special occasions. This year, and because of the pandemic, they have completely cut off access to vendors from the beach. The waiters wear masks and gloves, and the tables are appropriately distanced.

The best part is the food and service. They were very adept at making my daughter's birthday a success.

La Palapa is our go-to beach restaurant when in PV. We love how well they are socially distancing during the pandemic; all staff wear face masks, tables are sanitized in front of you before you’re seated, guests have temperature taken upon arrival, as well and shoes sanitized with Lysol and hands sanitized with purell, menus and napkins are single use and servers keep a safe distance away when taking orders. Food is consistently good, and location is stunningly beautiful.

I want to love the food here but there were some inconsistencies. My tortilla soup and taquitos were great but the fried snapper was over cooked and under seasoned. The service was great and they gave our group of four time to just enjoy the meal.

What a lovely evening on the beach in an idyllic setting, watching the sun set, sipping cocktails (especially recommend the Sierra Madre if you like a little spice), followed by absolutely delicious meals. We had the Filete de Salmon and the Camerones La Palapa.
The staff was attentive, yet not overbearing. We highly recommend this fine restaurant.
