The food was fine. Nothing outstanding. Service was ok as well. In general, there was nothing bad about the restaurant, but nothing outstanding.

After a day of snorkeling and whalewatching we had a delicious lunch of Coconut Prawns and my husband had the Tequila Prawns. They we're both to die for!!! Friends had the Chicken Nachos, they'd say pass, very bland. The restaurant is a very modest looking palapa restaurant on the edge of the Marine Reserve with gorgeous views of the Sea... More

Group of 4 dined here a couple of nights. Nice setting with water view. Solid Mexican cuisine. Cold beer and good margueritas. Family run with friendly staff. All in all, a good dining choice in cabo pulmo.

We had a table on the water and ate there 2 nights in a row because we enjoyed it so. The service is very slow, but it's a nice spot to wait and gaze out at the water. The waitstaff was great to our little 2 year old. The food is good considering the remoteness of the place and the... More

The food at La Palapa is really good, straightforward. The fish tacos and Tacos Cabo Pulmo were both really good. The restaurant is right on the beach, so the view can't be beat.

Wonderful location by the beach after the dusty drive. Pleasant staff who were very busy as the restaurant was full. Always a good sign! All the tacos were excellent, especially the fish.

Although a 2 hr or so drive from San Jose del Cabo we really enjoyed our lunch of tequila shrimp and tequila scallops. Unfortunately the water was a bit rough to snorkel that day. There is about a 10 mile stretch of dirt "road" for the last bit.

I love this place for the view. Ocean front and very peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed nice food and very nice price. Missing the Good cafe at the end of the lunch... But it is ok.
