As parents know, it’s not easy finding a nice restaurant that will please everyone in the family. La Palapa passed that test. My wife and I had been before and enjoyed it. But this was our first visit with three teens and one of their friends. Everyone enjoyed their food very much. Between us we ordered Patty's Combo (an appetizer plate with nachos, quesadillas and taquitos), Fajitas Mixtas (beef, chicken AND shrimp), and an array of carnitas, chicken and cheese enchiladas. The chips and salsa were fresh and excellent! The location by the bay is wonderful, inviting a nice stroll along the water either before or after eating.
Why not a fifth star? The waiting. On both of our visits we waited 5-10 minutes just to be seated, not because they were full but because no one came to seat us. Then, the wait for the food to be delivered was long. The table service was also a little spotty. They seem understaffed. BUT, the staff is VERY friendly and that makes up for most of the waiting. The sauces on the enchiladas are too sparse and somewhat thin, so consider ordering extra sauce. The fajitas were served with only two tortillas even though there was enough fajita makings to fill three or four. Ask for additional tortillas when you place your order. The tortillas are excellent.
We will return and try other items on the menu. We’d like to find enough good reasons to add the fifth star.
