Fodor's Expert Review La Palapa
This large, welcoming, thatched-roof eatery is open to the breezes of Playa Los Muertos and filled with wicker-covered chandeliers, art-glass fixtures, and lazily rotating ceiling fans. The menu meanders among international dishes with modern presentation: roasted stuffed chicken breast, pork loin, seared yellowfin tuna drizzled in cacao sauce. The seafood enchilada plate is divine. It's pricey, but the beachfront location and, in the evening, the low lights and Latin jazz combo (8 to 11 pm nightly), keep people coming back. Breakfast here (daily after 8 am) is popular with locals as well as visitors. This is the sister property to Vista Grill, which has great views of the bay from the hills above town.
