Second trip from other side of San Antonio to this nice up scale Mexican themed restaurant with dining inside and outside. I and three guests started lunch with Margarita chips and salsa. I had the ceviche (for the second time). Order guests ordered from lunch menu and were very satisfied with quality of meal. The only negative was the time... More

Other than mine, their ceviche is noteworthy. I prefer scallops, fish & shrimp, instead of just fish, but Paloma Blanca captures the most important part of ceviche...the flavor! Right amount of lime, venegar, & spiciness. Table-side made quacamole rivals On The Border--other SA restaurants don't even have table-side quac. Fresh made, right there, wonderful. Ceviche & quac make a meal... More

I went here for dinner one night while in San Antonio. The wait was not too bad as they had a classical guitarist in the bar area. Our server was very prompt. The salsa's were very good. We had the Ceviche as an appetizer which was very good. My date had the De Cameron Chile Rellenos which was fantastic. I... More

We visited here for both happy hour and lunch. Great ambiance, with a nice outdoor area (despite its strip mall location) and indoor dining that's a bit quieter than your usual Mexican place. Nice selection of appetizers at happy hour, with reasonable drinks. Menu items we had at lunch were all tasty--menu runs more towards interior Mexican, so if you're... More

I really enjoy this restaurant. I have been here several times over the last few years and the food is always fantastic. The lunch specials are a good value on their menu. I ordered the soup and enchilada combination, which came with a large cup of soup (I recommend the wonderful crema poblana), an enchilada verde (shredded chicken and cheese... More

This is THE best Mexican food yet. Have lived in Texas for forty plus years and this is the best. Wish I lived in San Antonio!

My friend and I went to lunch based on recommendation from a friend and Trip Advisor. We were disappointed. The server was terrible. Although the restaurant was not crowded, We had to almost run the server down to get silverware and chips/salsa. It was if our presence in the restaurant was a irritant to him. My friend's chicken dish was... More

I went here while in town on business. There were folks eating out on a nice, shady terrace but I elected to eat inside. The building is on several levels, so it's a cool restaurant; definitely not your "typical" tex-mex-style restaurant. The service was friendly and prompt, they serve two nice salsas, once a smokey, chipotle-style salsa, the other a... More

We went on a Friday night to have dinner with in laws and although we had to wait around 45 minutes to get a table, we really enjoyed the crunchy flautas, and the fish. It's far from touristic areas, but the flavors won't disappoint.

First it is a pretty place. It is large inside and can accommodate many people, but it is broken up, so no one single area feels too big. There is an outside patio that feels "away from it all." The décor is an elegant, old Spanish mission style. Staff are all gracious, knowledgeable, always smiling, and neat & tidy. We... More

Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.
