La Palapa is one of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Situated on Los Muertos beach you can have a table on the sand. Awesome for romantic dining, fun with friends or hanging out in the afternoon sun people watching you will not be disappointed!! Sunsets are out of this world.

Most romantic beach front restaurant. Grab a table by sunset, sit on the beach while eating dinner and watch the sun go down.

Favorite spot in PV for Fine Dining right on the beach. Feet the sand, amazing spot for sunset. Staff is great and food amazing. Love the ambience. Found at the far end of the Romantic Zone. You won't be disappointed.

A wonderful, romantic place for dinner with terrific food. More expensive than most PV restaurants, but in our judgment worth every peso! Reserve a front row table and get there in time for the sunset.

La Palapa is located in the LOS MUERTOS beach area of the "Romantic Zone" and is only a short walk from the condo. This is a very upscale beach restaurant where one can enjoy the finest cuisine with ones feet in the sand and white linen on the table! Also tables are available underneath the large palapa. Where ever you choose to sit you will be in one of Puerto Vallarta's oldest and finest restaurants...It's also a great place for watching the sunset and enjoying mojitos and margaritas!

Great for classy on the beach dining. International cusine and they do their best given produce and high quality products are not as readily available in vallarta as in San Francisco where I live. Go there for sunset dinner and/or just have drink in the beach lounge area with beautiful live performers. Breakfast on the beach is really lovely there as well.

One of my favorite places in PV. We set up early in the morning on the beach. The staff was extremely attentive. I started off with a bloody mary then went to a grilled octopus taco. Then more adult drinks. IMO prices were very nice considering the service we received.

Great spot for dinner, but we also love La Palapa for breakfast. Get a table under an umbrella in the sand, add a mimosa and you are in for a treat. Lovely way to start the day.

In the Romantic Zone, this restaurant sits on the beach at Playa de los Muertos. The menu is varied with Mexican and seafood dishes. Some more 'American' dishes are available as well. There is an underground parking deck available nearby across from the Park condo building. Otherwise, a quick cab ride is best.

excellent beach restaurant, lounge and beaxh club. Same owners as Vista Grill. Most fun is to get a table in the sand at night and be tickled by delicate water on your toes.

La Palapa is a restaurant right on the ocean and just steps away from the condo, service, food is okay, but we think a little overpriced, but you pay for sitting on the ocean

Great food, great service, right on the beach! For those special nights when you`re in the mood for something more gourmet. A bit pricier, but awesome!

A staple on the beach in Puerto Vallarta, La Palapa is the name of the straw umbrella that you'll see on most of the beaches in town. It's also the name of a restaurant where you can enjoy gorgeous sunsets.

Excellent family stop but fairly expensive. Kids can play in water as you chill in luxury

Local from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

La Palapa is an incredible experience right on the beach of Los Muertos, on the south side of Puerto Vallarta. A tropical, beautiful restaurant with local Mexican cuisine with a coastal, tropical influence. Awesome for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Really enjoyed all the meals!

Good food, a little pricey, but the ambience and view can't be beat. Make sure to schedule your reservation so you get to see the sunset.
