We had the most romantic delicious dinner ever with our feet in the sand! The sunset was gorgeous and even the thunderstorm that came and soaked my hubby's back didn't put a damper on things. We were kind of bummed we didn't get to lounge because of the rain, but we couldn't have asked for a more perfect dinner!

What a surprise this time around!! I hardly recognize the beachfront. The boardwalk has been totally rebuilt since the hurricane, and the casual restaurants are now very chic--the menus are "haute cuisine," with martinis instead of grande margaritas. Even the guests were all dressed in stylish Mexican Riviera casual.
Live, quiet jazz every night and wandering musicians play for tips between sets--either on the beach or in the restaurant. The food was superb!! Shrimp and vegetable tempura, pan-seared scallops, coconut shrimp, and snapper in lime beurre blanc was available, along with ice-cold martinis and flaming coffees.
Don't miss the old photos of Puerto Vallarta in the hallway leading to the restrooms. Even with the renovations, I still prefer to sit on the beach. The cocktail lounge is very comfortable--no one leaves--so get there early or be prepared to stand while sipping your drink and enjoying the music.
Who could ask for more, except to visit one more time?

If that isn't enough, the food is incredible! We started with calamari for an appetizer, perfect little rings, cooked to perfection with a nice seasoned yogurt dip. As the sun started to set on the bay, our dinners came by the friendliest and most attentive server.
What to look at? The sunset so full of color, or the meal so artistically arranged? Once the nose caught a whiff, the stomach won out.
I enjoyed a 6 huge prawns, sauted in the shell in a wine and garlic sauce, with a delicate rice and vegetable side-dish. My friends enjoyed the catch of the day, one prepared with garlic and lime, the other with a blend of spices and wine.
The menu is extensive, but save room for the tiramisu! So good, I had to jab my fork into my friends hand as he tried to wrangle the last bite! La Palapa has a website at La Palapa.
